This event is designed for people who have never experienced yoga before to those of you who are teaching classes and practicing daily.

Do you know what Raindrop Technique is? First it is amazing! You will smell like a peppermint pizza when finished! (which is so yummy!) Raindrop is a technique that Gary Young founded many years ago that is comprised of Roll and Release on the feet and then Tibetan and Native American techniques up the spine using 9 different oils. It is harmonizing, rejuvinating, and relaxing. It is so fun to give and receive this technique all together. This is a technique you will use on your family and friends to care and share with others. Due to there being so many Raindrop Teachers in your area, we will be doing a Raindrop Demo, teaching Roll & Release, and answering questions. We are adding in Gary's Emotional Clearing Technique to this event for the VERY FIRST TIME! This is a big deal to learn from a subtle method to the full Technique.

We have many testimonials and messages that come from all ranks. Here are a few…

Charlotte Dustin Clinard It was an amazing time! I’d love to attend another balance event❤️

Patricia Donahue Thank you for all for your love, patience, encouragement, support, and your gift of self. This was a MARVELOUS weekend that has given me a new perspective. I am blessed and fulfilled. Peace and blessings.

Dory Doyle, Gold Leader

I have now attended 3 Balance Retreats: the first in Utah, then in Chicago, and again in Dallas. Each time, I have seen and experienced something so beautiful in that room. The first time I attended was for me, having just faced a major milestone diagnosis with my young son. I used those 3 days to recharge, refocus, and revitalize myself, while doing it with a community of Young Living around me.

The second and third times were different. I still was able to go and enjoy and recenter myself, but this Balance education team has put together outstanding duplicable modules that I am able to teach and explore with my own team (and I'm not a yoga instructor). I have been to 3 Conventions, every single quarterly rally, and several other YL events, and I have never had such an experience as at a Balance Retreat. I learned more about our products, empowerment as a business builder and leader, and community. I cannot wait to let my team experience these in the future!

Danette Goodyear, Crown Diamond Leader

This YL Balance Wellness Retreat is officially one of the top YL events of all time! The thoughtful details to make everyone comfortable and able to have close instruction, including the limit of 200 people, is key for this setting. This is the closest thing Ive been to that reminds me of Gary teaching in the earlier days of Young Living. Ed Dailey, Pamela Hunter, Tamara Packer and Brittany Jacobson all BROUGHT it with timely, insightful, powerful demonstrations and presentations. They are the dream team for this event! I have heard #AllPositive comments about these two days and I loved the commitment that each person showed by coming to learn how to develop their own self-care on daily! Thank you Young Living for supporting this needed event in the field. (As a side note, I do think that the event could do almost all the registration/sales etc with local volunteers and maybe just 1 person from corp.)

The Young Living BALANCE: Yoga & Wellness Retreat was by far the best all-around local Young Living sponsored event I have attended in relation to the intimate group size, smooth registration, high-quality content, and the feeling of community that was created among my team and Young Living cross line friends. The unique culture that everyone raves about within Young Living has so much to do with the relationships that are formed, and the feeling of a close-knit community. As the company continues to achieve Gary's vision of getting oils into every home, our YL family size grows with it; making events like this even more crucial in maintaining the culture that makes our company so unique and desirable. Ed Dailey, Pamela Hunter, Tamara Packer and Brittany Jacobson were phenomenal and brought their gifts and talents to the stage and to the members in such a beautiful and impactful way! There were many moments where our team members were exchanging looks with jaws dropped because we were so beside ourselves with the amazing information that was shared! My members were all so excited and thoroughly enjoyed their time together, and are already asking when the next one is going to happen so they can make sure their members attend too! Please, please continue these beautiful intimate events. Now that the grassroots members have experienced their first BALANCE retreat, I am certain there will be a growing momentum and desire to be a part of such a wonderful event the next time it comes to town!

Star Moree, Diamond Leader

Loved this event and they really need these kinds of events! Felt like the old days but better as they are small enough to stay intimate!

Sarah Lee, Diamond Leader

The Balance event was the best YL corporate event that I have been to besides Convention. I love how it covers the Young Living LIFESTYLE! It shows us how we can find our health! It shows us how we can teach it to others. It shows us that we have the tools to move forward. I love the trainers, Ed, Tamara, Pamela and Britt. They make an incredible team! I told my team about this event and they would really love some kind of recreation of this. Please oh please let these Balance events be the first of many to come. Please keep this event on the books. Thank you! Feel free to contact me directly. We are ready to host an event like this in Seattle!

Stacy Tiegs

I wanted to take a moment to share how much the Young Living Balance: Yoga and Wellness Retreat has changed my life and many others. I was a big NON-YOGIE believer until I went to my first retreat in Sarasota. Where have I been? I didn't know it was more than just breathing, stretching and weird poses. It was a community of like-minded people helping others learn how to take better care of yourself as a human being. Not only with the Yoga part but also learning more about our supplements and the gut brain relationship. Having the Raindrop Technique and Corporate there was over the top. These teachers know how to work together. Ed Dailey, Pamela Hunter, Tamara Packer & Brittany Jacobson were AMAZING!!! I can now teach my team more than I ever could having all of this goodness in one place. These events have been such an asset to me and my business and I know I can speak for many. I absolutely can't wait for the next event and my team is anxiously waiting for dates! Thank you!!!

Jared shared during Gary’s funeral:

What can I do personally to keep Gary’s legacy alive in our lives?

Gary would say, “To heal. To be healers. He would say, there is enough marketers, sales people, business people in this world. What this world needs more of today are healers. People who give to others without expecting anything in return. This company, this movement was founded on the notion of healing. He would ask for each of you to care for the other and extend that community wider and wider until the whole earth is taken up with Gary’s community and tribe. Watch out for the signs.”
