For double occupancy, will you be able/willing to assign rooms if I am not signing up with a friend?
Yes, if you don’t have a friend to share a room with I will be assigning roommates for any double occupancies (by gender).

Is the sample schedule just an example or is it the exact same schedule each day?
The sample schedule is indeed just an example, but it’s pretty close to timing. We will enjoy daily sunbathing and meditation. With all of our retreats the training portion (lecture and discussion) is optional, but I’ve found that everyone ends up wanting to fully participate! We will also have a special ceremony & dinner the last night.

Is there any kind of pre-retreat meeting or will we meet everyone once we arrive?Although most of the participants are from Minnesota, some are from around the USA so there will not be an opportunity for everyone to meet prior to our trip. We will, however have a Facebook group where students can share packing lists, questions, etc.

What if I want to go on the retreat, and enjoy the morning yoga & meditation classes, but not necessarily get certification or attend the lectures / training?

That’s just fine! The week will be extraordinary, and there is no pressure. Participate in activities as little or as much as you like.
