“Good teaching cannot be reduced to technique; good teaching comes from the identity and integrity of the teacher.” - Palmer


We invite you to expand your teaching through a rigorous and well-rounded immersion.  In the 300 Hour Teaching Mastery Retreat, we will set a foundation of common language and expertise, diving into all aspects of the mastery of teaching yoga.  You can expect full days, from early morning into late evening.  While the program is challenging, it's also highly rewarding and built to sustain you throughout your hard work.
