Sunday Theme:

Yoga business & Retreats




Things to consider when planning for retreat:

  • Amount of rooms and details of what is available.

  • Cancelation Policy

  • Minimum Nightly stay

  • Everyone must sign digital contract which protects you and any parties involved in your event or retreat.

Digital Contract Information:

  • You can use google forms and create your contract like I did for these forms below:

Money Exchange

  • Studio & gym payments per class: Ranges from $20-$25 per class.

  • Workshop percentage at Akasha 60/40 split. 60 to the teafcher. (Great rate)

  • Total retreat cost should be covered by the first week of retreat.

  • Deposits should be set to be taken two weeks prior to event.

Cancelation Policies:

  • All scheduled classes have a strict 24 hour cancellation policy. If you cancel more than 24 hrs before your scheduled session you will keep your credit. If you cancel less than 24 hours before your scheduled session you will lose your credit.

  • You must cancel two weeks prior to a retreat. Canceling after the two week period forfeits your deposit.

Intake Forms & Contracts:


Passcode: D%^?QS94

Below is a legal document I used for festival you can place some of this verbiage in your forms as well. I am going to edit some of it into the current retreat form above.

I still need to add cancelation information and cost etc.
