About The Teacher

Elena Sonnino is a life coach with one goal: to help you learn to embrace epic belly flops so that you find flight in the fight to reach your own summit. She believes that the more you are willing to fall, the stronger you will be when you rise up. And Elena knows how to fall. In fact, she perfected the art of epic belly flops off a surfboard during her first SwellWomen retreat. But instead of seeing the falls of her board as failure, Elena found laughter and celebration as she progressed on the water each day. Elena brings her experiences as a cancer survivor, teacher, writer, marathon runner, adventure traveler and yogini to her life coaching. She works with women to find stillness to tap into their intuition and uses questioning, gratitude, dreams and metaphors to help others reveal their true self.

Why Retreat?

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

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

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.
