Call To Register

This 5-day yoga retreat is designed to introduce ASL Interpreters and ITP students to the traditional teachings and practices of yoga. During this retreat we will focus on the concept that “everything in the manifest world is frequency” and dive into how frequencies impact our body, mind, emotions, and life path. ​Hosted and presented by ASL Interpreters and yoga teachers Betsi Heithaus and Lila Lolling, this personal and professional retreat offers 4.63 RID CEUs. Spaces filled last year and are expected to fill again. Early registration is recommended.

This retreat offers 4.63 RID CEUs, however you must attend all sessions to earn them. Please plan your travel arrangements accordingly. Please note all homemade meals are organic and vegetarian/vegan based.
