About The Teacher

Emily is the owner of the Amaveda wellness brand. She is an experienced retreat facilitator, nutritionist, detox specialist, aromatherapist, formulator, plant-ally and a student and advocate of Ayurveda. 

Since 2006, Emily has been based in Peru studying alternative medicine from the Andes to the Amazon. In 2011 Emily went to Kerala, India to study Ayurveda and Pancha Karma, the Ayurvedic system of detoxification. Her goal was to bring the wisdom of this ancient system of detoxification back to Peru, where she created her first detox protocol in 2012: fuelled by Amazonian botanicals and South American superfoods.  

Since 2012 she has guided hundreds of people through her Ayurveda Inspired-Amazonian-sourced detox protocol both on retreat and with her at-home programmes, yielding outstanding results.

Emily brings together only top-notch yoga teachers, body workers and energy healers who excel in their fields to fulfil and compliment her international retreats.

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.
