Hi I’m Annie Barrett. I am a certified Yoga Health Coach and Yoga Health Coach member, and enthusiastic participant of the most recent Yogahealer retreat that took place in October 2017, in Rapid City, South Dakota. In this podcast, I talk about what we experienced on the retreat: there were about 30 of us Yogahealer members, including members from Body Thrive, Yoga Health Coaching, Living Ayurveda Course, and Awake Living, and, of course, Cate.
If you went on the Rapid City, South Dakota Retreat, this show is a great recap of what we did, and will be a reflective experience for you. If you are interested in what happens on Yogahealer retreats, this podcast will give you an idea of what we do so you can consider attending the next one (I think you should!). And if you are thinking about leading retreats for your clients or course members, or you already do, this podcast will give you excellent ideas for transformative retreat activities.
The theme of this retreat was Stepping into Your Future Self, and it was really about our personal and collective evolution. And as are all things Yogahealer, it was a collaborative affair. So tune in to hear more about this amazing experience!

- Why you should come to the next retreat!
- 3:00 – The scenery was beautiful, the food delicious and nourishing, the swag bags filled with goodies, and the added activities collaborative and powerful.
- 5:00 – We considered why we came to the retreat: We came for connection. We came for fun, for exchange of ideas, for exchange of energy. We came to get clarity around our dharma. We came for breakthroughs, and we got them.
- 6:00 – In order the consider the future self, you must consider the past and present self. Who are you? Where have you been? And who will you become next? List out your old tendencies and your new desired tendencies, and consider what you might need to give up from the old.
- 10:45 – The way we usually spend our time may not be the way we need to spend it to become our future Selves. By taking the time to designing the ideal calendar for ourselves, we can take actionable steps forward toward that next Self.
