Form & Flow Yoga Retreat & Intensive

Deep Practice + Refined Practicum

A 25-hour, Kula-style intensive for teachers and serious students with Schuyler Grant

Topanga, CA // June 3-6, 2024

This retreat has something for everyone. Or, everyone ready for four days jam-packed with Schuyler‘s teachings, that is. Sprinkle in the splendor of Topanga Canyon in early summer and all the amenities of Commune Topanga and you have a most unusual and transformational intensive

Whether you are a teacher looking to hone your teaching skills or a dedicated practitioner interested in a more nuanced experience of Kula-style yoga, this intimate retreat is the perfect way to level up your relationship to your practice.


Retreat Schedule & Details


Every morning and afternoon Schuyler will teach extended Kula Flow classes and workshops encompassing: 

  • the art of dynamic flow
  • practical, applicable alignment and anatomy 
  • nuanced study of foundational and advanced asanas
  • the power and adaptability of pranayama 
  • the healing practices of bandha and kriya

In between classes, Schuyler will lead a daily, optional 2.5-hour Teachers Forum. This is when we geek out on Kula-style teaching and when teachers have the opportunity to hone their personal teaching techniques. These sessions are open to all retreat participants, but they are specifically designed for teachers and teachers in training:

  • individual feedback on teaching technique and strategies
  • techniques for precision cuing 
  • refining hands-on assists 
  • elevating breath and music as teaching tools

(Retreaters are also welcome to take the afternoon off and hike, hit the beach, or explore all the other goodies that Topanga and Malibu have to offer.)

This intensive will leave your cup spilling over — with practice, teachings & community.

Our Playground 

At the end of the end of the end of a road, perched atop a remote valley of the Santa Monica mountains, sits Topanga Commune: 10 acres of meandering paths, oak trees, palms and gardens abutting state land. You won’t believe you are less than an hour from the heart of LA.

The property has a main house, a guest house, four tea house private rooms, three sweet A-Frame cabins, and plenty of space for camping. Sleep on organic mattresses and linens and enjoy the bounty of LA’s best local farmers for every home-cooked meal.

The property also has a sauna, hot tub, plunge pool, basketball, badminton, and a plethora of hammocks.

Songwriter Neil Young lived on this property for many years and was deeply inspired by this magical spot. If there is anywhere in the world to find “a heart of gold,” it may be here.

“I want to live, I want to give. I've been a miner for a heart of gold. It's these expressions I never give that keep me searching for a heart of gold.” ~ Neil Young
