Her spiritual home is the great Nataraja Temple of Chidambaram. Based in NYC, she has taught since 2002, is E-RYT 500, and is the creator of Devi Soul Yoga.

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.
