Lea Garnier

About The Teacher

Lea Garnier has worked in the healing arts for over 25 years and is an accomplished practitioner in this field. She began her healing journey as an artist of healing paintings that have been displayed, sold in Europe and New York. Lea found Craniosacral Therapy in NYC after suffering neck and back injuries sustained in an auto accident. The relief she found from this work was so profound she put down her painting brushes to pursue training. Lea is now a trained Upledger Craniosacral Therapist. In 2008 she became a certified yoga instructor trained in the Desikachar linage, and specializes in teaching the integration of sound healing and sound awareness (nada) in a yoga class setting. A safe and fun environment is created which integrates the sacred sound medicine of crystal singing bowls, gongs, mantra and traditional instruments from various indigenous cultures.

Lea is a student of the shamanic arts which inspired her ongoing interest in therapeutic sound for healing, and which led to the organization of one of the first comprehensive sound healing retreats in the northeast. In 2010 she co-founded and continues to organize the Annual Sound Healing Retreat Intensive, the Annual Sound Healing Certification Program, and Gong Camp with master Don Conreaux which takes place at Menla Mountain Retreat Center & Ananda Ashram, and caters to an international audience of practitioners working in the healing arts.

Lea is available for group sound baths, private ceremony work, weddings and death passages. She has a CD of healing mantras, icaros and sacred sound. Her teachers are many, and she is grateful for the opportunity to share the knowledge ascribed to her over the years within the art forms she continues to study passionately.

Why Retreat?

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

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica

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.
