planning a yoga retreat with Giana Gambino and Bradshaw Wish

Giana Gambino and Bradshaw Wish of CAYA Yoga School join me this week to talk all things yoga retreats! These two have come together to create a dream-team when it comes to planning yoga retreats — they offer several domestic and international retreats per year (look for their 2025 retreat in Italy) and they’ve honed their process. They generously share all of their secrets in this conversation. We cover:

  • How they split the workload (and the payout)
  • Planning yoga retreat days vs. farming out the excursions
  • Their marketing/sales calendar
  • What goes into pricing a yoga retreat (and what you might be forgetting)
  • The food! (the thing participants often complain about the most)
  • Funny yoga retreat snafus and how they handled them
  • Why you should never put a charcuterie board out if Bradshaw is on a yoga retreat with you
