We took the lessons we’ve learned working with retreat leaders all over the world to create this easy-to-follow budget builder worksheet.

What’s Inside?

This template allows you to estimate profits by walking you through simple revenue calculations and planning for ALL your costs, including:

  • Variable costs (those that depend on the size of your group), including expenditures related to transportation, accommodation, catering & food service, and supplies
  • Fixed costs (those that do not vary with group size) such as insurance policies, sales & marketing spend, and host/facilitator expenses
  • Percentage-driven costs like participant payment fees, discounts/promotions, referral/sales commissions, vendor transaction fees, and tips

Who's It For?

We wrote this guide for professionals who focus on wellness modalities including:

  • Movement & fitness (yoga, Pilates, qi gong, tai chi, dance, barre, running, and cycling…to name just a few)
  • Meditation & mindfulness
  • Dietary & detox programs
  • Spiritual transformation & trauma recovery
  • Holistic healing & therapeutics (including Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, acupressure, massage, Reiki, among others)
  • Entrepreneurship & coaching
  • Other educational programs
