Yoga Teacher Retreat w/ Abby

Dec 9 – 16, 2023

If you’re a yoga teacher, chances are high that you’ve spent more time leading retreats than attending them. You might even spend more time on your yoga mat, leading classes, than practicing.

Honey, I’ve been there!

Teaching Yoga is one of the most wonderful, beautiful jobs in the world. And yet, it is so easy to feel depleted, unsupported, and isolated.

My intention in holding this retreat is to bring teachers together, to provide space to practice in community, and to help you reconnect with the reasons you love teaching.

In addition to lodging and food, our week together will include 7 morning practices, 7 evening meditations, and daily discussions on topics such as:

  • Trauma-informed care, consent, and boundaries
  • Offering skillful assists
  • Student-centered teaching
  • Inclusive sequencing, language & cuing
  • Developing your online presence & offerings

Open to teachers and students who have completed at least 200 hrs of YTT. Zest for learning and appreciation for silliness, a must!

Packages include:

  • Lodging from Dec 9-16
  • 3 meals/ day for all full days, plus dinner on Dec 9 & brunch on Dec 16
  • Daily yoga and meditation practices
  • Daily workshops & discussions on topics mentioned above

A non-refundable deposit of $500 is required to hold your spot; full balance must be paid by Oct 1 to secure early bird pricing; regular pricing must be paid in full by Nov 15.

About the Instructor:

Abby Kraai (she/ her/ hers) received her foundational 200-hr training in 2012 at Yoga Tree in San Francisco, CA, and completed her 500-hr in 2018 with Jason Crandell. She has studied a rich blend of styles from Vinyasa to Kids Yoga, and now specializes in leading Teacher Trainings, Teacher Mentorships, and Yoga with Scoliosis & Spinal Fusion.

Abby first came to the mat as a teenager, when she was diagnosed with a severe case of scoliosis. When back braces, chiropractors, and yoga were not enough, she received corrective surgery in 2002. Two stainless steel rods, twenty-two screws, and eleven fused vertebrae later, Abby found new meaning in the word flexibility, and a profound appreciation for movement. She took up distance running, cycling, and Ultimate Frisbee, and soon found herself pulled back to yoga. Through a balance of Vinyasa, Restorative, and Meditation practices, she built a stronger connection between her breath, body, mind, and heart – this connection followed her out of the studio and onto the Frisbee field, the race course, and into her daily life.

In every class, training, and retreat she leads, Abby hopes to inspire her students to respect their bodies, to find joy in movement and rest, and to always make room for their hearts.
