Retreat for Weekend Workshop Leaders

October 3-6 2017

Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center, Downingtown PA

Precious time together, how rare and wonderful!  This retreat is an opportunity to spend time with Swamiji, Vidyadevi and your peers.  It is a retreat, not a training, so it means we have a more spacious schedule, with longer meals and recess timings, like when you’re taking a Weekend Workshop. 

You’ll also hone your skills by reviewing partner poses and key teachings, plus you’ll be adding new tools to your tool kit.  And you’ll plan for the future, working together to develop marketing strategies, so you are better able to serve more people, more often.

Theory is never enough.  Your experience of teaching makes you ready to learn more and develop your skills more fully.  Thus, there is a Preparation requirement:  you must have taught at least two Weekend Workshops in the last 12 months in order to participate.  There is still time to create and teach them before our October retreat!  And if you have taught 5 or more Weekend Workshops in the last 12 months, you enjoy a full scholarship for this retreat.
