Yogahealer Retreat: Breakthroughs, Growth, and Stepping into Leadership

In this Changemaker Challenge episode, Carly Banks chats with Yoga Health Coach Angela Hammond about the breakthroughs they experienced at the Yogahealer retreat in March 2018. Connection and communication happens quickly and deeply when you’re in person with people on the same path as you, people who “speak your language.” It’s an invaluable experience to wellness practitioners who often work alone. In the “pressure cooker” of the retreat experience, we help each other evolve as individuals and as wellness pros. The ability to stand in a room with your peers and see yourself as someone like them, someone who is making big shifts, someone who is being a catalyst for change, results in powerful identity evolution. Cate has an uncanny ability to relay information that, in the hand of another, could come off as heady and esoteric in a way that is relatable, digestible and manageable. Because of that, we get further faster in the retreat environment. We left with clarity about how to move forward with our businesses; we left feeling like the leaders that we are, and we left having made connections with other amazing course members who we might not have discovered or connected within the online community.

  • How Yogahealer retreats facilitate rapid connection, insight, growth, and breakthroughs.

Show Highlights:

  • 0:30 – Carly and Angela met at the Yogahealer retreat in Mexico in March 2018. So many of the practices done at the retreat facilitated rapid processing and lead to big shifts in the course members who were there.
  • 2:27 – Connection and communication happens quickly and deeply when you’re in person with people on the same path as you, who “speak your language.” It’s an invaluable experience to wellness practitioners who often work alone. In the “pressure cooker” of the retreat experience, we help each other evolve as individuals and as wellness pros.
  • 4:55 – The ability to stand in a room with your peers and see yourself as someone like them, someone who is making big shifts, someone who is being a catalyst for change, results in powerful identity evolution.
  • 6:25 – The theme for the Mexico retreat was leadership, and by the end of the training, there was no doubt in anyone’s mind that each of us was indeed a leader. We left with clarity about how to move forward with our businesses. For some, like Carly, that meant scrapping the business plan that they had formulated prior to the retreat, but rather than being tedious and tiresome, the process felt easeful and fun. For others, like Angela, it meant leaning into shifts from a head-forward business to a heart-forward business.
  • 8:38 – Cate has an uncanny ability to relay information that, in the hand of another, could come off as heady and esoteric in a way that is relatable, digestible and manageable. Because of that, course members easily “speak the same language” and are able to get further faster in the retreat environment.
  • 10:30 – The retreat experience also offers an opportunity to powerfully connect with other amazing course members who we might not have discovered or connected within the online community.
  • 11:00 – There are now 1,700 members in the Changemaker Challenge forum. If you are one of those, and you haven’t talked to Grace about Yoga Health Coaching, do it now so that you can get in on the next retreat in Salt Lake City!

  • “We need to stop making ourselves feel small and look small.” — Carly Banks
  • “It the retreat really solidified my ideals of having a business that is also fun.” — Carly Banks
