Denver 420 Retreat

This retreat is hosted by Bodhi Yoga Academy

Here’s a little more information to help you make your decision.

The number one thing we want people to understand is that our goal is to make retreats AFFORDABLE for EVERYONE. This means most of our retreats are not usually focused on being luxurious (although there are definitely some exceptions!) Our yoga retreats tend to be HALF the price of other retreats.

Bodhi typically rents out properties and host their own classes within the structure of the day. We will move furniture, practice outside, hosting yoga classes anywhere we have space. Bodhi usually provides brunch daily, leaving afternoon and evening meals up to their guests. Rooms and accommodation vary. We usually give an options for private rooms at a slightly higher price, but also offer dorm or shared rooms to keep the pricing more affordable. The only thing you need is to bring your yoga mat and a good attitude!

Testimonials: 

"My primary goal as you know going into the week was to get advice and tools for developing a better home practice- and I think that was an overall theme of the retreat for everyone. I can say that in the weeks since I have been home, I have practiced more, and practiced more deeply than I have before.  I am now comfortable coming home from work and knowing that I don't need to rush off to a studio class to get a practice in for the day. Overall I thought it was a beautiful experience, Casa Om is definitely amazing, and I liked the different subjects that we were able to explore in the week I was there." - Julia

"After an intensive with Irene feel that I have been given the tools needed to thrive as a yoga instructor both in my personal practice and in sharing the wisdom with others. Her down to Earth attitude and wealth of knowledge make learning an easy process. I would highly recommend her retreats and workshops to anyone looking to learn and grow as a student or instructor." - Jenessa

ABOUT THE TRAINING:
