About this trip

SPIRIT SPEAK: TURNING YOUR YOGA CLASS INTO A JOURNEY OF THE SOUL

A 30-hour Teacher Immersion Retreat


In this very special six-day/five-night immersion retreat, we will go deeper into the process of exploring the subtle, physical and spiritual energies involved in finding one’s own unique self-expression and facilitating transformational journey work for our students. This immersion is about cultivating your personal strengths as a teacher and/or student, developing a strong and confident voice, and how to turn a simple class into a soul-inspiring experience.


Many teachers are taught the mechanics: alignment, sequencing, asana, pranayama, meditation - the traditional and rich history of yoga. Yet, they have left yearning for a way to bring their students into a place of deep surrender, prayer, and intentional energetic shifts. “Holding space” for transformation requires your own deep commitment to the inner journey of spirit and the compassion, courage, and a willingness to articulate the soul’s journey to others. 


We’ll explore our own personal practice and connection to source and how to then invite Spirit into the body/mind experience, incorporate ritual, and how to speak authentically from your heart as a way to inspire, inform and motivate your class. The immersion will include daily yoga practice, meditation, pranayama, soul work, journal writing, and practice teaching.


This immersion retreat will ultimately shed light on just how powerful and inspirational YOU can be and offer tools on how to share your unique self-expression with the world.


Over the course of five days we will explore:

  • The basic mechanics of how to structure and organize a class responsibly and practically. Including alignment, adjustments, and sequencing.
  • Understanding the mind/connection, trauma and how to use the chakra system for insight, wisdom, and healing.
  • How to theme a class symbolically and emotionally, introduce current events, the power and challenges of offering prayer, intention setting and how to ritualize an embodied experience.
  • Discover your strengths and challenges as a teacher and confront the limiting beliefs that may be blocking you from your own unique self-expression and willingness to communicate fearlessly and authentically your true Self with others.
  • Learn how to read your students’ bodies and translate what you see into symbolic themes that encourage deep wisdom and insight into Self. 

At the end of the week, you will get to take home five sequences to practice and teach as well as ten unique prayers written by Seane, that you are free to use and explore in your own teaching and practice. 


There will be plenty of time between sessions to simply relax and connect with yourself, each other and the land. Perched on 10 acres, atop a remote valley with beautiful views of the Santa Monica mountains, you can find yourself chilling in the jacuzzi or cedar sauna, taking a swim in the lap pool or dunk in the cold plunge. There are also many places for quiet-time like the sun patios or cozy up to the large living room fireplace in the 1920’s Spanish Mission-style house. 


If you feel like an adventure there are gorgeous hiking trails nearby and the Pacific Ocean is only 20 minutes away. We will do an intention setting meditation at Seane's yoga yurt overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and a ritual blessing at a nearby labyrinth. Our private chef for the week will be on-site creating the most delicious organic vegan meals fresh for us each day. What makes this retreat uniquely special is that you will have an opportunity to understand why Seane has made Topanga her home for the past 25 years and why she considers it one of the most beautiful, sacred and healing places in the world.


Come be part of this very special immersion retreat limited to just 34 people and recommit to healing yourself, awakening to Spirit within and beyond, and engaging with the world around you with compassion, inspiration, and understanding.


We ask that anyone taking this immersion has completed a 200hr Teacher Training.  

Each day there will be asana practice, discussion, and workshop. 30 hours of class time. This immersion counts towards meeting Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Requirements.

Anything with Seane is always good for the soul. I'd go see her anywhere!
Seane is brilliant every time I attend one of her events. Always grateful for the experience. Skylands Sanctuary is so full of compassion beings and Mike is a force to be reckoned with!!
Such a wonderful experience surrounded by like-minded folk. The animal sanctuary is an interesting and exciting place to which I look forward to returning! Seane Corn is down to earth, I’m honored to have practiced yoga with her and grateful for the opportunity to meet great people and contribute to the cause of loving and caring for all living beings.
Attended a Yoga Workshop at the Skylands Animal Sanctuary and Rescue Benefit with Seane Corn. The Yoga Class was really great. Seane is warm and welcoming and makes everyone know how much she appreciates our attendance. Seane not only taught a Yoga Class but also spoke of Animal rights and veganism. It was very educational and heartfelt. Lunch was vegan food and very good ,tasty and filling. A tour was given by Mike who is the owner/operator of this farm and he is so knowledgeable of what he is teaching and describing of animal cruelty and why we should be mostly aware of what we are eating . It was a very wonderful afternoon and I truly learned a lot . Everyone should visit this farm and do a tour. You might think twice before you consume meat. I will most definitely. Thank you to all the employees at the farm who were so nice and made us feel so at home. I will return very soon., It's a really fabulous farm and the animals are so people friendly.
Mike and Seane are a great team. This is my 4th time at Skylands for this event and I learn something new every time. PLUS - Seane teaches in a beautiful space - a ballroom with cherubs on the ceiling! It's magical!
