Bond with your peeps by offering a retreat!
Tom and I love retreats! Our greatest memories of childhood were the times that we went away for a few nights with others to bond. For one weekend we would bunk with other people, dine at community tables, rest in nature and develop deep bonds of friendship that still remain all these years later. There was nothing like it!
Perhaps this is why our heart is to provide facilities for others to do the same!
You are in the healing profession. Your heart is to help others achieve the peace that you have found in your yoga/meditation or spiritual practice. You want to infuse people with the tools that you have to put aside the struggles and live a more full and rewarding life. But that's hard to do in a yoga studio situation. Sometimes you need to come away to a new environment designed just for the purpose of rest and renewal. As a teacher you need to time to go deep with your students, blessing them with your own special brand of whatever it is that you do.
It's so rewarding to see the "ah ha" moment when the light goes on in your student or when you really deeply connect on a new level. To have an opportunity to live in community with others is what we all crave on a deep inner level.
If you're checking out retreat venues, give us a try.
Our retreat center is manageable and intimate. Because we are only 1 hour from Boston, Hartford and Providence, more of your people will be able to come. We like to keep things intimate here, at around 10 people total. This gives you a more premium retreat for you can give your group the attention they desire.
