You may take the trainings at Sun Moon Yoga prior to your retreat, or after. If you take them prior to the retreat, you will be given credit for workshops, but not a deduction of cost from 300hour program tuition.

Our Retreats are specifically planned to return you recharged, inspired, motivated.

“When you view yoga as solely an exercise class you limit transformation on many deeper levels.”
