Teacher Training Retreat

Teacher Training Retreat Mission

Our mission is to create an unforgettable training experience that completely embodies the notion of learning through play. Through an extensive exploration of our inner child, our goal is to send YOU off into the world full of self-love, compassion, inspiration and a yoga toolbox overflowing with the most valuable treasures out there to support all of the little yogis in our world. We will play, we will learn, we will practice, we will gather, we will lift each other up, we will create and most importantly we will share our experience with kids in our communities to create a more peaceful world.

What Will the Retreat Include


  • We will begin each morning with an hour long practice to open our bodies, clear our minds and to prepare for the day ahead.
  • We will end each day with a guided yoga nidra/meditation for a restful slumber.


  • Throughout each day we will explore the camp grounds and engage in activities such as hiking, climbing, swimming, ropes course and more!


  • 3 delicious vegetarian meals are provided each day and specialty diets may be accommodated on request.


  • During your 5 days at "Big Kid Camp" you will also receive 60 hours of training led by facilitators Abby Nagler, An Dang & Vanessa O'Rourke. The training will include TLYH's Foundations Training & Module 2.
  • We will merge the two trainings into one which will include age appropriate tools to teach yoga, mindfulness & meditation to toddlers to tweens. This training will also dive deeper into the ethics of yoga for kids, classroom management, curriculum planning, mindful teaching and weaving in art , journaling, crystals & other healing modalities into your classes.

*We are in the process of receiving our Yoga Alliance approval and hope it comes in prior to this retreat. In the case that it does not, the 60 hours will go towards the full 95-hrs once we receive the approval necessary.*
