About us

Hope Bastine is a game changing therapist. Born on the foot of the Pyrenees, raised in India, and consolidated her education in Europe. A barefoot child of India, she understands the compass of cultural diversity, she is a Third Culture Kid. But what has been her constant in the face of an ever-changing environment is her spiritual practice. After having trained as a neuropsychologist, Hope went on to teach psychology. She has now set up a London-based wellbeing company, Fresh Perception, offering spiritual psychotherapy, corporate Mindfulness training, and wellbeing yoga retreats. She is currently researching her thesis on the personal growth of Meditation and Yoga.  

She has a well-grounded background in anatomy, physiology, neuroscience, and psychology before launching into her formal yoga training with Jason Crandell and The Yoga People. After having trained with Burmese Monks, she extended her training into the secular mindfulness discipline under the guidance of Dr Collard, author of 'MBCT for Dummies'. As a practicing psychotherapist, Hope is an expert in the psychological benefits in Mindfulness and yoga.

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.
