Christine (Krishnaa Mukti) Withiel

About us

Christine began practicing Hatha Yoga in 1995. Up to this time she had practiced meditation and been interested in yoga philosophy for many years. She began her practice with a Sivananda teacher and after two years shifted to an Iyengar teacher who later became her husband. Christine began teaching in 2001 and by 2003 had created a beautiful yoga studio space in Durban with her husband. An E-RYT since 2005, Christine has been training yoga teachers since that time. She and her husband travel to India regularly, often taking groups of students with them. When Christine first discovered yoga, her body was so tight, her toes seemed miles away and knees didn’t want to leave her ears in baddha konasana. Sitting up straight in dandasana was not an option. With consistent practice, her body loosened up and strengthened. She credits her own body as her my best teacher. Christine can identify with and inspire others who are new to yoga, while teaching them how to practice safely without injury. She is equally passionate about asana, pranayama and yoga philosophy. Together these are the most wonderful tools for self-transformation and growth. Christine feels blessed to be able to share her passion…

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

This sounds like a dream! I am an education student and I have spent way too much time working all summer to pay for school. My boyfriend of 5 years is a government firefighter and has been away working most of the summer. His 30th Birthday and our 6th anniversary is coming up this winter, we would love to celebrate with a yoga retreat! We both love yoga but have barley had time to practice in the past few months. Keeping our fingers crossed! Jaimee and Dan

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
