About The Teacher

A Letter From Autumn Adams, the founder of Ambuja Yoga

Welcome to Ambuja Yoga! I’m thrilled that you’ve found us (and that you’re snooping around to learn more). Each and every day I am thankful for this community of awesome, powerful and compassionate yogis. I am grateful that you’re here and that you’re interested in investing in your wellbeing by attending a yoga retreat.

I created Ambuja Yoga in 2014 as an outlet to share my passion for wellbeing and balanced living while actively creating a life that I LOVE. As Ambuja Yoga came into fruition and evolved into what it is today, I can honestly say that I have found my path, my life’s work, my dharma.

I want the same for you. I want you to love the life you live. My hope is to empower YOU to be courageous (to take those leaps), to handle life’s challenges with grace, and uncover your life’s sankalpa (an intention that guides you in all aspects of your life).

You are worth it! You are worthy of investment. No more excuses. I want you to step out of your comfort zone, out of your rut, and make big changes in your life.

Our yoga retreats are created to be more than an opportunity to deepen your yoga asana practice. Our yoga retreats provide an opportunity to completely step away from daily distractions, to overcome fear, to break bad habits, to see things as they really are, and renew your sense of self worth. Our yoga retreats encourage you to create subtle shifts in your perspective while discovering how you want to show up in your life.

Happiness is an attitude, acceptance is a choice and attitude is everything!

You are invited to join us on a yoga retreat… to nourish yourself from the inside out, to do something just for you, and create a positive shift in your life. You don’t need to be a “perfect” hand-standing yogi, you don’t need to know Sanskrit, you don’t even have to have a regular meditation practice. We love you and your individuality. We’ll take you as you are!

For you certification geeks out there. I completed my 200 hr. YTT with Jeannie Laslo Douglas at Yoga Indigo in Bend, Oregon, my 85 hr. Prenatal YTT with Shana Celnicker Chong in Portland, Oregon and my 300 hr. with Zuna Yoga in Bali, Indonesia. I am an E-RYT and Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider. I am also a reiki 1 practitioner. I continue to study and grow as an instructor by attending regular workshops and trainings. I'm excited to share my love of yoga and knowledge with you.

I look forward to meeting you on your mat!

Love and Light,

Why Retreat?

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

I'm having a baby in October and want to focus my practice so I can be present and calm! Laine

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.
