About The Teacher

I began studying Yoga in 1983 as a way to rehabilitate and strengthen myself after a car accident.

What I learned then was how to breathe, how to use the breath to connect with my body, how to track physical sensations from moment to moment, and how to find an internal wisdom to guide my movement and choices toward well-being.

When I teach, I aim to bring students’ attention to a place of presence and wonder.

This is particularly helpful when students are working with injury or physical pain.

My classes and workshops focus on wellness through discovery, guided by the extensive study I’ve done into the body’s inner workings.

I focus on keeping instruction lively, accessible, encouraging and compassionate, with a dedication to work deeply and specifically, as well as with humor and irreverence.

Not only have I studied a wide-range of bodymind disciplines–Hypnosis, Neuro Linguistic Programing, Massage, Meditation, NonViolent Communication–but I’ve worked to master the material deeply enough to teach in each of these areas. Teaching itself is one of my greatest joys.

A long-time mover and shaker, my passion for movement forms has enriched my entire life with dance, yoga and daily walks in nature. Several teachershave cast a huge and loving influence over my growth as a teacher, practitioner and human being.

I began under the guidance of Bob Smith. Ana Forrest introduced me a really radical approach to yoga, and to my first teacher training certification.

Shari Friedrickson and Donna Fahri brought me into a softer, feminine inquiry.

Currently, Rod Stryker challenges and guides my development as a student and a teacher.

I love gardening, foreign travel, everything that smells good, warm-oil foot massages, flowers on my table and foods that both taste good and feel good in my body.

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

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.
