About us

I came to practice yoga because of my interest in meditation.  Sitting still and observing my mind I felt a sense of being without needing to do. The capacity to sit became the greatest tool for self-inquiry and a deeper understanding of all life. With a strong motivation to understand the workings of my mind, I spent many months and years in solitary retreat in the Himalaya’s. Yoga was a big part of my experience. For me, Asana is a moving meditation and the human body is the vehicle through which this transformational path unfolds.

I believe that most of our life is driven by habit. Yoga practice is about moving beyond our habitual way of being. Moving beyond our conditioned responses to life in order to live in an organic spontaneous way. Gently opening to an unfolding reality within our own body.

I am a Yoga Alliance certified teacher( RYT 500) . My studies of Yoga extend from ashrams in India to very technical anatomy workshops in North America. I am greatly influenced by the teachings of B.K.S Iyengar and Swami Satyananda Saraswati of the Bihar school of Yoga.  The trainings I completed include three 200hour hatha yoga trainings, kundalini Yoga Teacher Training according to Yogi Bhajan, and a 300hour training with Integrative Yoga therapy in the United states. I feel fortunate and privileged to study, teach, and practice yoga.

“ The yogi travels from outside to inside and then from inside to outside, just to come to the understanding that outside and inside are not different aspects but one” – Swami Lakshmanjoo

Good and bad, happy and sad, all thoughts vanish into emptiness, like the imprint of a bird in the sky. Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

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

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.
