I would say a period of intense training.

For example.

Two summers ago I returned to Japan and trained hard every day for three months. That was Shugyo.

We just had the winter Gashko which I did not attend. For those that did - that was Shugyo.

It's not just showing up and practicing either - the self driven intensity is important.
