About us

Martin incorporates his many

years of working in Canada's

wilderness as a Game Warden

and Search and Rescue

Technician in his work to bring you

his unique blend of nature's

wisdom and down to earth

practicality. His connection to

nature allows him to see you for

who you really are and to serve

you in very profound ways. He has

continued his study into methods

of releasing people's personal

power for many years and also

utilizes his past experience as a

Police Officer and martial artist, to

bring clarity and incredible insight

into some of life's most challenging


Born and raised in central Europe,

Martin experienced very early on

the foundational importance of

family. After being transplanted to

Canada from his home at age 11 and separated from his extended family, he turned to

sports and academics for his fulfillment. After graduating college in Lethbridge, Alberta

his career took him to many amazing National Parks around Western Canada and the

Northwest Territories, North of 60. In the late 90's Martin joined the world famous Royal

Canadian Mounted Police.

Martin now lives in the sunny Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada and has

recently decided to come out of the woods from his work as a Forest Technician to go

back to offering his gifts as a facilitator of life-changing events.

He has taught thousands of participants in Canada, the United States and Asia, the art

of "true power". Martin is an awesome example of a Spiritual Warrior who is ever

committed to living and passing on his passion and his gifts to others. You are sure to

enjoy his real humor and solid conviction in living the Path of the Warrior and the Sage.

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

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.
