The image conjured when people think of retreats is one of yoga on a beach. And yes, many retreats do involve yoga set in dreamy, hot spots like Tulum, Bali, and Nosara, this is not the only way to design a retreat.
Design a retreat around your passion!
All you need for a retreat is a group of people with a shared passion and a courageous leader (aka YOU) who will guide them on an adventure. You can:
Offer a retreat that evokes deep transformation in your students
Create a signature leadership retreat tied to your coaching program
Offer an experiential retreat in the magic of Costa Rica in which guests zip line through the rainforest to face their deepest fears
Create a soul searching expedition to Peru (maybe Machu Picchu)
Organize a group trip to walk the El Camino in Spain
Each of the 5 modules is jam packed with valuable knowledge and practical steps to bring your retreat business to life. We provide simple and practical strategies that are proven to deliver results.
OK real talk: how long have you been TALKING about your dream? Seriously, how long? It's time to start taking action and bringing your dream to life. There are amazing people out there waiting to learn from you. So get off your butt and let's get started. Our community of amazing retreat leaders can't wait to meet you and support you in your vision.
Design a retreat your participants will rave about:
