Your course experience will be challenging, but very rewarding. The structure of the programme is 5 days on, 1 day off. While your classroom study days will be intensive, interspersed with homework and self-study, a variety of voluntary fun options to do on your off days will be arranged for you – some free of charge, some involving a small charge. On your days off you can also avail yourself of the treatments and therapies available at Samahita Retreat at a discounted price offered for teacher trainees.
