Abundant Yoga Teacher Retreat


SCROLL DOWN

Abundant Yoga Teacher Retreat


As Yoga teachers we support and hold space for our students every time we show up for class. Yet how often do we take a step back to assess our own alignment?

 

Every day--often multiple times--we show up to support, hold space and heal our students and clients. Yet how often do we take these selfcare steps for ourselves?

 

We are committed to becoming better at what we do, registering for workshops with international teachers and seeking accreditations. Yet when do we actually take the time to learn the foundational pieces to be an abundant Yoga teacher?

 

The Abundant Yoga Teacher Retreat is Thailand is a potent blend of these pieces.

 

It is the sacred space you've been craving to really take a heart-felt dive into your passion-based business.

It is the yoga and meditation holiday you're longing for deep in your bones.

It is the coming together of friends with open hearts ready and excited to share and nourish, rekindle and rejuvenate.
 

 

In taking time out from everyday life you'll be able to reflect and remember on what drew you to this path originally.

With time and space you'll be invited to explore new directions, expansion or possibly consolidation in what it you offer and how you show up in your business and life.

Imagine spending seven days in magical northern Thailand with me showing you how to up-level your heart-centered business.

No phones to answer.

No classes to teach.

No hustle, struggle or uncertainty about what needs doing 'yesterday!' in your business.

 

Just spacious, targeted time to focus on what you need to step into greater abundance doing what you LOVE to do.

 

Imagine recharging your Abundant Yoga Business batteries.

 

Time to fall back in love with what drew you to this work originally.

Time to delight in new friendships and explore what it truly means to have support and inspiration from colleagues who really 'get you'.

Time to take in new information, alchemise it and apply it in a way that feels spacious AND effective, and all before you leave the retreat centre.

Come on retreat with me to experience all this and more from a place of joy, rather than a place of stress.

And imagine receiving all of this while on a deep-dive personal retreat, with daily Yoga, meditation, rest and nourishing farm-to-table meals.

Working for yourself can have incredible boons: freedom, flexibility and the opportunity to share your own unique gifts in a really authentic way. But it can also get really lonely.

In joining the Abundant Yoga Teacher Retreat you are saying 'Yes!' to a supportive, high-vibrational community ready to support you and your personal and business growth. 

Not only with their be networking and masterminding, lasting friendships will form, nourishing connections that will last long after our week comes to a close.

Who will really listen to what is feeling stuck or blocked for you in our Yoga businesses?

And who will really be there to see and celebrate you in your breakthroughs?

You will welcome in each day of the Abundant Yoga Teacher Retreat with a morning Yoga class with me as your Teacher.

A truly gorgeous way to start the morning with the emerging sun glinting through the open windows of our guest house. A little mist from the moat that surrounds the centre. A stick of incense. A few blurry eyes. An unfolding of mats. Your time to take the role of the student and simply be with your practice.

My Yoga style will be different to yours. You'll be asked to try new things, literally and metaphorically flex new muscles. And when we're done, over our luxurious breakfast, we can discuss, share and reflect on our similarities and differences.

 

Your very own group of colleagues and friends who really get what it means to love Yoga as much as you do and enjoy all of its complexities and nuance just like you do.

 

If you're ready to get back into your practice, and take the seat of the student for a week, I am so ready to support you.

In our abundant business workshops you'll receive the information and guidance you need without being bothered by details that won't support your growth. All of our activities will be directly applicable: and there will be time to mastermind, share and implement together, too.

 

 

1. A steady, clear foundation:

  • Clarity on your current yoga or holistic business, what you love and what needs more loving attention.

  • Your desired business model: scoped, defined and clear about your services and offerings.

  • A business plan for growth, greater service and abundance over the following 90-days.

 

2. Your 'stand out' brand:

  • Certainty on your ideal clients, who and how you wish to serve.

  • Your brand identity: authenticity AND uniqueness so you never feel pressure to compete.

  • Tips and techniques to generate professional looking (and sounding!) collateral without the big cost.

 

3. Marketing confidence:

  • A readiness to really 'put yourself out there' in your marketing material (and get out of hiding!).

  • A concise, 'do-able' social media plan to keep your clients and students enthusiastic and loyal without you ever feeling 'salesy'.

  • Systems and structures that keep you out of overwhelm while also raising the energy in your Kula by sharing your news and offerings.

 

4. A healthy money story:

  • Confidence in pricing your services so you worth is reflected in your rates.

  • A high vibration and magnetism generated through a belief in what you offer and how you conduct your work in the world

  • A transition to abundance consciousness, leaving lack and fear behind!

 

And of course the benefit of having spent a week on retreat: deep, restful sleep, wholesome vegetarian meals, daily yoga and meditation and gorgeous company all in a picturesque natural environment.

 

You don't need to be social media savvy to join us. 

You don't need to consider yourself an entrepreneur.

You most certainly don't need to have it all figured out first.

This is an 'all levels' retreat: from your yoga and meditation practice through to your website, pricing and services.

With full support


With full support


An Abundant Yoga Teacher Retreat is unlike any other form of business growth program you can imagine.

 

Instead, it is a deep, nurturing and supportive wellbeing retreat where we come together each day to bring forth your business best, from a place of rest, openness and contemplation.

 

Our daily meditation and journalling will be designed to rekindle your passion for your practice and craft, as well as draw forth inspiration, ideas and creativity to grow your business, serve more people and generate abundance.

 

You'll be supported with incredible farm-to-table vegetarian meals prepared with love by the women at the Retreat Centre. There will be time for rest and afternoon naps, bike rides to the coffee shop, time reading in the library or contemplating in the meditation space.

Ready?


If you know that you are meant for more but you never find the time to recalibrate and think clearly...

If you're scared that the busy-ness and overwhelm of running your business might dilute (or destroy) the passion for your craft...

If you're just not the type to invest in a business course (but know you need the skills)...

 

Then I'm ready to invite you in to the special sanctuary in northern Thailand and guide you into a fuller, more grounded and more abundant version of yourself as a holistic business owner.

 

Spend seven days and six nights at my favourite retreat centre in the world, eating amazing organic meals, practicing yoga and meditation, reflecting, learning with a group of like-minded souls and really taking time for you!

And enjoy my support and guidance to map out the business you truly desire to offer to your community: refining your message, services, marketing and pricing once and for all.

It's true: not all retreats are the right fit for everybody.

If you'd like to speak with me privately about this retreat and discover if it is the right fit for you, please send me an email and we can set up a time to talk.

My intention for this retreat is that the perfect collection of Yoga teachers and holistic practitioners gather to really receive the greatest benefit from the retreat, my coaching and each others' company. So I am totally available to help you decide if this is for you.
