I just heard of an organizer challenged by the travel agents bureau for operating as a travel agent without a proper liscence. This was a big surprise to the yoga teacher who has never even considered this a problem.

Just one more thing to check on.

Thanks for all the other tips. I've got my first retreat planned for a weekend this summer and hope to grow it to a week long event in a few years.

The most fun I've ever had has been hosting women's yoga and Ayurveda retreats here at Rasa Ayurveda Traditional Healing Centre for Women.
They are always small and personal, and filled with experiential learning on many levels, with attendees from many countries in the world.
Many yoga teachers get excited about bringing their friends and students to Rasa Ayurveda for retreats or training immersions, which is awesome. However, it's really important to finalize plans at least 6 months in advance for best turnout.


I am a new 200 hr certified yoga teacher and I am looking to deepen my education by assisting on a Yoga reatreat. Do you know of any opportunities to do so? Thank you!

Great! And yes, leading reatreat is very good way to develop the self. You will learn a greater lesson from your students (you know them deeper), new place, new culture and different energy.
I'm a yoga retreat leader, from more than 60 retreats and workshop in 7 years I want you to try to lead retreat. Namaste.
