West coast

Guru’s west coast hub is headquartered within the legendary Record Plant in Sausalito, California, where some of the most iconic albums of the past four decades were made. Many original features of the building remain intact and it is deeply saturated with the creative vibes of the era.

In the same building, and available for use by Guru employees, is a wellness center by day – offering a variety of daily movement classes, infrared saunas, massage and acupuncture – and a social club by night, with a robust event calendar that boasts live music, thought leaders and entertainment.

East coast

Guru’s east coast hub (under construction, as we speak) is headquartered within a dynamic innovation ecosystem of businesses along the shores of Lake Champlain in Burlington, VT where tech companies and agencies co-mingle and collaborate.

Here, Guru employees will be able to enjoy access to a private beach, lunchtime yoga and movement classes, a full service cafe and boating on the lake after work.
