Yoga Retreat Hosting
Begin by browsing our destinations to select the perfect venues for your trip. We usually recommend combining 2-3 destinations for a fuller experience. Then get in touch and we’ll work with you via email and Skype to fine-tune and finalize an itinerary based on your needs, schedule, and interests.
We’ll take care of all transportation, accommodation and excursion activities while your retreat is running in Thailand. This includes:
- Handling registrations, deposits, payments and bookings
- Helping with flyer design and marketing materials
- Reserving hotel rooms and yoga spaces
- Organizing group transportation between activities and destinations
- Providing destination information, recommendations and guidance
- Organizing meals and extracurricular activities, such as market and temple visits
After getting an idea of logistics, like how long you want the retreat to run, how many students will be attending and what activities you’re interested in, we’ll take care of all the planning and leave you to what you do best – teach! You’ll be responsible for:
- Encouraging your students to sign up
- Organizing your transportation to Thailand
- Teaching your classes during the retreat
- Having fun!
Though we can usually work with a tight turnaround time, the sooner you can start organizing the holiday and your group, the better. This allows guests plenty of time to sign up, book cheaper airfare and for all reservations to be finalized.
We want you to succeed, which is why we offer a range of marketing materials, tools and extra support to help you reach your goal. As the teacher, you are responsible for finding and bringing your own participants, however Thailand Yoga Holidays will provide you with ongoing support including:
- A branded, eye catching poster and flyer
- A Marketing Guide with tips and tools to attract students within your network
- Ability to direct your students to our extensive images, videos and testimonials
- Listing your event on our social media and upcoming events page for increased international exposure
The number of students you bring is up to you, however, all groups must have a minimum of 6-8 students with a suggested maximum of 16 students.
Christophe is there for you from beginning to end in order to manage whatever happens to come up. He is also equipped with a reliable team of drivers, doctors, massage therapists, chefs and more to handle any situation.
It is essential that each participant purchases their own travel and health insurance prior to registering. More information and instructions are detailed in the waiver forms required of each participant.
If for whatever reason you’re unable to teach the retreat, Thailand Yoga Holidays will arrange for a suitable replacement yoga instructor so students who have already booked, paid and bought their flights can still experience the holiday – we’ve got your back! In any case, all standard cancellation and refund terms apply.
In the rare event that we have to cancel a retreat we will notify you at the earliest possible moment and give you and your students a full refund.
Shoot us a brief bio and a few catchy photos and we’ll set up your custom, retreat event page on the TYH website. Simply share that link with your students and we’ll handle all registrations, liability waivers and payments through PayPal, so you don’t have to worry about collecting payments, taxes or accounting.
Should you prefer to handle registrations and payments yourself, that’s perfectly fine – after all, it’s your retreat!
Once your students register for your retreat, we’ll be in touch with them to answer any questions, help them prepare for the journey and coordinate their airport transfers.
Since all our trips are custom made, the price depends on factors such as location, length, and activities included. By and large, our retreats sell for $300USD per person, per night.
Once we’ve agreed on your retreat itinerary, we’ll shoot you a wholesale per person price which you can mark up as you see fit. As a teacher, your room and board is always covered and the more students you bring, the more you profit!
You’ll be glad to have us on your team. From the moment you land, the founder Christophe Cappon, will be present to manage your group experience. From dietary restrictions to managing inevitable surprises, Christophe uses his network of local contacts and experience to offer you a truly VIP, Thailand experience.
We’ve got it covered with top-of-the-line yoga mats, blocks, straps, towels and luxurious foam rollers.
We can help you capture the magic with professional photographers and compile eye-catching marketing material to help promote your next retreat.
In order to expose students to the widest variety of Thai culinary experiences, most of our retreats don’t adhere to a specific diet. That being said, if you prefer to restrict your retreat to a specific meal plan that can also be arranged. Everything is possible!
