Our goal is to inspire people around the globe to have deep and meaningful practices both on and off the mat, to understand what it takes to be a truly powerful and authentic leader, and to use words and actions that support and nurture a healthy relationship to oneself and to that our collective as yoga students, teachers, and humans will thrive - that is Swastha! Together we, Kevin McQuillan and Serena Arora, have taught, led, shared and witnessed the beautiful process of yoga in communities around the world for over 35 years and we are excited to build a community of teachers, practitioners, and leaders who are equally as committed to sharing, contributing, learning and being well together. We invite you here to our home in Costa Rica, on the road, and to call us into your own community to support growth and possibility - wherever you are in the world!

This experience exceeded all expectations! The requirement is to come with an open mind and heart, interest for learning and leaving this beautiful place with new trusted coaches and friends. My intention was to complete my 500 hour YTT certification, learn more about ayurvedic healing practices, and dig deep. It was perfect timing for me, as 2020+ has been a rocky road. This space allowed me to reflect on where I was covering up, making poor lifestyle choices and how to let go. It was much more than obtaining a certification. Kevin and Serena are wise, supportive and engaged completely in this work. Not only do you learn new things, but you acquire new capabilities to face life and be a better human. Its hard to put into words but I wholeheartedly recommend Peace Retreat and their courses. Pura vida! Rah

Had such a healing and wonderful time. This place and the people are truly heart filling and give space to heal in ways I have been needing. Food and accommodation was great. 5 stars is not enough for what the peace retreat has to offer. ❤️❤️❤️

Serena and Kevin are amazingly passionate teachers! I left this teacher training program with so much more then a 200 hour yoga teaching certification. Through their program, which was well planned, I became a better person which in turn will make me a great teacher! I returned home inspired and excited to use these skills that I was given. I look forward to return next year for additional training! Thank you Kevin and Serena for your dedication to making this world a better place to live!

Human Journey YTT was the most incredible experience I have ever had! The combination of yoga training and self discovery was more than I could have hoped for. Kevin and Serena truly have a gift and I feel blessed to have been apart of this experience. Everything from the people, facility (Peace Retreat), the nutrition, and the education was on point. The experience leaves me at a loss for words. I highly recommend any one who is able to attend this experience!!! Much love!
