Leading retreats allows you:
time to build stronger and more meaningful teacher/student relationships
a space to offer longer workshop style classes with themes
get you and your students away from work, obligations & technology
delve deeper into the philosophy and spirituality of yoga (or whatever your niche is)

Use up their vacation that hardly any American ever uses
Have their favorite yoga teacher essentially in their suitcases (every yogis' dream!)
The opportunity for personal growth, transformation, and empowerment
A chance to deepen their yoga practice physically and spiritually
