About The Teacher

Christoffel Hendrickx started his spiritual path in the European underground. As a cultural activist and promoter of experimental performance and rave culture he expressed his inner voice, opposing all forms of establishment and violence. In need for self healing and inner peace he traveled to New Zealand and departed on an inward journey with Vipassana Meditation. Seeking more diverse and energetic practice, he settled in ashram style Anahata Yoga retreat in Golden Bay, practicing traditional yogas on a daily basis. He found a deep love for bhakti yoga and hatha yoga and devoted two year study to a degree at the Academy of Yoga sciences in Australia. When living in Melbourne he was working as a vegan chef in a bhakti restaurant. During that period he started a series of events and workshops under the label of Yoga4Life. When he returned to Anahata Yoga Retreat he deepened his connection with chanting and teaching hatha yoga classes and meditation. Now he travels the world exploring traditional sadhana and the connection with contemporary culture.

The consciousness in you and the consciousness in me, apparently two, really one, seek unity and that is love. Sri Nisargadatta

Why Retreat?

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

I teach yoga part time and am a mom of two toddlers full time. I love my life, but goodness do I need a break. My husband and I have been putting off our wedding ceremony for 4 years because life has gotten in the way. We haven't had a single night alone since our family has grown. I wouldn't change a thing about our lives now, but it would be so wonderful to remember what it's like to 'just be us.' Antrim

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.
