My name is Susan Mittleman and I am a 500-hr, Certified Professional Yoga Teacher and Certified Yoga Therapist in the Pranakriya tradition, a lineage of Kripalu Hatha Yoga.

Why Retreat?

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

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

Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
