Please note: Reno is a tourist destination, hotels fill early and this is rodeo week. Please book your reservation as soon as possible.
We have arranged to have group hotel rates at the Legacy Vacation Resort. It is not a casino; it is close, and all units have fully equipped kitchens. This is an older resort, clean and well maintained. Note that this is a timeshare, and does not offer daily maid service (housekeeping services are available for an additional fee), but does provide clean towels and sheets whenever requested. Contact Kathy for rates and booking details. If you would like to share lodging, let Kathy know.
Downtown casinos, nearby hotels and motels, Airbnb:
Downtown casinos are .7 to 1.5 miles from The Yoga Center. Please note the casino gaming areas are all smoking areas. You can find some good deals on the various travel websites, but do check on walking distance to The Yoga Center if you will not have a car. Please contact Kathy at The Yoga Center if you want to ask about the neighborhood you are looking at.
WHAT TO BRING
-A notebook and writing materials
-A yoga mat. The Yoga Center has mats available for your use if you are traveling light.
-A doll for you to practice with during group instruction and yoga demonstrations. The doll should have articulated arms and legs long enough to manipulate into yoga poses. Large size “Raggedy Ann” type dolls work best. The Yoga Center has dolls for your use, please let us know if you would like to work with one of our experienced dolls so we have enough for everyone.
WHAT TO WEAR
Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes, including pants and shirts that allow you to move freely during yoga postures. The weather in Reno in June can range from snow to 100 degree temperatures, and often include 40 degree swings from day to night. Dress in layers, and bring sunglasses, hat and sunscreen. The area is in the high desert, at 4,800 ft. elevation with single digit humidity, so drink plenty of water.
For parents or caregivers who plan to attend the Program with their child, we have included a questionnaire. Please fill it out and return it to us as soon as possible. If you know of any parents of children with special needs who would like to bring their children to volunteer during the Program for demonstrations, please contact Kathy Randolph at The Yoga Center for information.
Parents will be responsible for providing their own childcare. We can put you in contact with certified teachers and licensed day care providers in the area if you like. Please contact Kathy at The Yoga Center for referrals.

The teacher training experience can be a time of deep emotional connection for some people. Though this process is healing, it can also be stressful. If you have any history of mental illness i.e. depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder or any form of psychosis, it would be very helpful for your teacher to know in order to be sensitive to your needs.
