The one downside of online learning is missing that special component of in person connection and having bodies to practice on while studying yoga. For this reason Heartwood offers a special course reinforcement retreat in April (optional) for those who wish to attend to get a taste of the live experience of teacher training. This affordable, long weekend retreat invites our online graduates to practice teaching, experience the ambiance of Heartwood, enjoy gong meditations and other live experiences, participate in workshops that are best delivered in person (hands on adjustments and props and modification workshops), and enjoy a special graduation ceremony. Join us to walk the labyrinth, take a class at our medicine wheel, meet your tribe in person and feel more a part of Heartwood with other online learners. This option means you can enjoy the best of both worlds, taking advantage of the affordability, flexibility and safety of remote learning, while also getting a taste of the immersion experience if you choose. The retreat option provides additional learning hours to your program and is not required for full certification. Students must be graduates of our online RYS-200 program to participate. Onsite housing is limited to 11and is dorm style. Private rooms are available close to Heartwood (Air B & B style) for a modest additional fee of 25.00 a night, payable to the host.
Prerequisite: Participants must be enrolled in or have completed one of Heartwood's Online RYS-200 courses.
