About BookRetreats

Our Mission

Our mission

….and now Yoga.

This is the opening sentence of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, which you could call the “bible” of yoga. It means you’ve tried all kinds of things for your happiness. You turned in many directions. In the end they didn’t work....

And now you’ve found yoga.

We’re here to share this journey with you.

If you’ve ever felt:

I know I am not as well spiritually or emotionally as I want to be.
I need to get healthy again in body and mind.
I need to remove myself from the everyday hustle of life.
I want to unplug, de-stress, and re-charge.
I desire to reconnect with the deep and real me again.
I want to explore the deeper aspects of life.

Or you’re stressed from work or family, and just want to feel utterly safe, warm, and cared for…

...then you’ve found your sanctuary.

You’ve found the place to discover the perfect retreat for you. A place to get that much-deserved relaxation.

Let me guess, you feel there is something more to life right? More than just a 9-5 drudgery that leaves you feeling stressed and out of touch with yourself.

We do too.

The Founders


Sean Kelly, Co-Founder

My world cracked open one day while sitting on a simple brown bench listening to the flowing water pass by. It's when I first was reminded of my forgotten ability to lucid dream.

From that moment in time 10 years ago, my life has been dedicated to unraveling the mysteries of life in their magic and intrigue.

My search has taken on many forms: from the halls of UC Berkeley, to the hustle of startup life in Silicon Valley, to obscure temples and ashrams in india. A long travel to come back home into the heart.

From that home comes the offering of BookRetreats.com. A synergy of my passions: Yoga, the internet, and entrepreneurship. The integration of spirituality and the creative business spirit. I'm happy you're joining the journey :)


Ron Piron, Co-Founder

Picture this. A fresh-faced Israeli college student just finishing up his first year, and feeling the inner call to do something different. That was me 10 years ago. A short trip to India confirmed that inner feeling and the next thing I know my stuff is packed and I'm off to Asia. Off on a journey back to my heart.

This began my 10 year journey of studying Yoga and meditation, getting to know myself, letting go the ropes of attachment, and dropping the need to accomplish society's goals.

During that time I met incredibly inspiring teachers, discovered deep friendships, connected with nature and absorbed the richness of many different cultures.

In 2011 my journey came full circle again, as I accepted an invitation to come on board an international tech company, where I worked for 5 years. Now is the next phase.


I've taken everything I've learned from the worlds of meditation, yoga, technology and synthesized it into what is true right livelihood for me: the full dedication toward human wellness.

BookRetreats.com is that expression of my dedication toward a better, more peaceful world.
