In the summer of 2015, Helen took one yoga teacher on a trip to the incredible city of San Miguel de Allende in the cool mountains of Mexico, with TravelPhile Tours and a group of 30 guests. Morning and afternoon yoga classes on the roof top deck made the week a lovely getaway for the guests, and a great training opportunity. A week with Helen meant lots of one on one time for Jeanne to discuss her studies and deepen her practice of living as a yogi, and professional yoga teacher. An easy going vacation + yoga environment allowed behind-the-scenes time with the tour operator, hotel owner, and kitchen staff for an invaluable learning opportunity, for retreats Jeanne plans to host in the future. In our experience, Helen's students - enthusiastic but low key yogis of the “senior” variety needed a unique blend of pick-me-up and take-it-easy - enough to create a lovely holiday for them, rather than a full on yoga retreat. Still, the combination of teaching yoga on the rooftop, studying how to feed, nurture and entertain groups of people, and experiencing the ease of a typical yoga vacation from the point of view of both teacher and guest provided ample material for Jeanne to learn and grow.
Retreats & Scholarships
Over the years, we've tried to help people find / fund their dreams with assistance taking workshops we could not provide, acquiring skills we do not possess, or experiencing conferences and exotic retreats that otherwise would not be available. As our program has grown, we've moved more toward retreats for groups over individual trainings, but you can always ask - our work is to help your work.
