Teacher Training Retreats in Joshua Tree, CA

Training and accommodations are all onsite in a spacious, comfortable house in the heart of the desert. Surrounded by otherworldly plant life and mountains, the house is located near an entrance to Joshua Tree National Park. It’s far enough out of town to feel isolated, but is only a 15-minute drive to grocery stores, restaurants, spas, and night spots.

The house has a large, fully-equipped kitchen & laundry; a hot tub and pool; indoor fireplace and outdoor fire pits; two mountain bikes; and several star-gazing platforms set into the surrounding desert for awe-inspiring views of sunrise, sunsets, and vast, starry night skies.

The setting is remote and beautiful - perfect for a week of detoxing, unwinding, and learning.

Each day, teacher training will end at 5pm and your evenings are your own! Relax at the house, enjoying the hot tub, fire pit, and cooking dinner with your fellow trainees; go for a bike ride or hike in the National Park; or book a massage at one of the many amazing spas and hot springs that the area is known for.
