Pricing: $780.00 - a week (Members price: $700- become a member)
This pricing includes:  Training, Boarding and Meals

  •  Personal training - 5 hours of training with Master Zhou and 2 hours of self-       practice. 6 Days of full practice, Monday through Saturday, and Sunday (half day) and departure from Xuan Ju. 
  • Boarding:  - Limited space - first come first serve, there are alternative boarding options in the area including local Hotels & Inns and AirBnB. There will also be an option to set up your own tent on the retreat grounds with access to our showers and facilities. 

  •  Breakfast, lunch, and Dinner
    Meals: -  We have taken out the option of taking lunch at nearby restaurants with split checks because we found out that most students would opt for an affordable and quick lunch meal in Xuan Ju (or for commuters to bring their own lunch with them. )As such, we devised a meal plan that will is both practical and affordable to accommodate this request.  Lunch is included in the package where students can prepare and fix a sandwich and a healthy salad in Xuan Ju's kitchen.
