Your Group booking includes

Top tips for organizing your retreat
Arranging a retreat, whether for your yoga group, corporate away day or your dream cultural escape, is simple with My SachaJi, and we are here to assist you every step of the way. Read on for advice that will help you get planning.
- Pick a destination that inspires you, whether it’s the landscape, culture or atmosphere that does it. Of course, we’d love you to choose My SachaJi, but it has to feel right to you, and our Andean ecolodge won’t suit everyone. After that, take into consideration: accessibility (is it easy for participants to get to the retreat?); services (what facilities does the destination offer relevant to your retreat?); climate (is the weather conducive to the purpose of your retreat?); price (does it fit into your and your clients’ budget?); and food (is the destination going to provide suitable meals for participants?)
- Consider narrowing down your target group: beginners or advanced students, for example, or a certain interest or personality, rather than for all and sundry.
- Work out a suitable price. This is no easy feat: make it too cheap and you’re selling yourself short, too expensive and you’ll put off potential clients. Follow your intuition, and set a price that you would be happy to pay yourself.
- Don’t sit back and wait for clients to approach you: get marketing! From word of mouth and posters to a landing page on your website and a social media campaign,
- it’s up to you to spread the message far and wide and fill up those spaces on your retreat.
- Be respectful towards potential participants, listening sincerely to their concerns.
Once they arrive on your retreat take their needs seriously, bearing in mind that each one might require something different from organized sessions and/or downtime.
