This is the Part of Your Yoga Teacher Career that You've Been Waiting for, and you're just weeks away from your first retreat

Retreats have the potential to bring in thousands of dollars in new revenue to your yoga business. For your first retreat, we’re going to keep it modest and close to home. This is for you to have the right experience and a success before fulfilling your dreams of exotic destinations, white sands, and coconuts. You’ll receive all the tools you need for a memorable yoga escape that you can put on repeat.

Regular Income - 365 days
Retreat Income - 12 days

Just 4 weekend retreats per year (12 days total) can add 30% or more of your annual income.

Annual Gross Income

Hypothetical annual gross income of a yoga teacher in their second year of teaching full time:

  • 10 classes per week
  • 2 privates per week
  • 2 workshops per month
  • 4 weekend retreats per year

Classes - 39% of income
10 classes per week x $35 per class x 52 weeks


Privates - 15% of income
2 Privates per week x $70 per private x 52 weeks

  • $7,280

Workshops - 15% of income
2 Workshops per month with 15 students each x $20 per student x 12 months

  • $7,200

Retreats - 31% of income
4 Weekend Retreats (3 nights) per year with 8 students each x $450 per student

  • $14,400

Annual Gross Income

The estimated amounts will vary depending on location of residence.

Retreat income could be considerably more if you can sell out longer retreats at higher price points.

SUCCESS Blueprint

The first coaching call will be focused on research. You’ll learn how to scout out and select the best location for the type of retreat you want to have. You’ll learn how to determine rental costs for guest accommodation, how to select included meals, choose local food options, and cover all the details related to initial retreat planning.

In this call you’ll learn all about retreat structure and pricing. You’ll create a theme, lesson, or objective for your retreat. I’ll also show you how to calculate all of your base costs, determine the minimum amount of students required to earn a profit, and how to determine your sale price so that it’s a good deal for your students and for you.

Call 3 is about marketing and promotion. You’ll learn how to utilize your email list and social media for maximum effect. You’ll receive guidance on how often to promote, and how to do it without being spammy or too “salesy”. You’ll receive templates for all communications including for basic inquiries, bookings, and follow ups.

Here, we’ll cover implementation. You’ll learn all about delivering a great retreat experience, and pull everything together: the retreat schedule, events and excursions, meal times, how to utilize assistants, and everything about managing all of the pieces – including using reviews, photos, and video from this retreat to promote your next one!
