YOGA RETREATS TERMS & CONDITIONS

Below are the general terms and conditions for our Yoga retreats. Please make sure you read and understand them. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We would love to help you in any way.

Accommodation on our yoga retreats

Accommodation is available from the afternoon/evening of the retreat starting date till the last day of the retreat. You will be staying in one of our accommodations based on your indicated preferences and subject of course to availability. Rooms will be distributed on a first come first serve basis. We will confirm the type of room you will have before your final payment. This refers to room type as well as weather its shared or not but not to any specific room. We are not a travel agency and cannot guarantee a type of room that suits your absolute preferences but we will do our very best to do so.

Meals

You’ll be served delicious vegetarian meals during our retreats. Some retreats have all meals included while others have most of them included in the price (please refer to the specific retreat page for more details). On the arrival day we often serve a welcome dinner and on the evening or morning (depending on the retreat) of the last day we’ll serve a goodbye meal. On our Yoga, Food & Nature retreats where natural chef – Galit Hahn is joining this is often how it is, however, in retreats where we are hosted by a third party who prepares the meals for us conditions may differ slightly.

The program

During the retreat each morning will start with a long active yoga asana class and in the afternoon there will be a more restorative asana & pranayama class. In our Yoga, Food & nature retreat after dinner we often have talks on topics like healthy food, natural cooking and balanced nutrition. The day’s program sometimes ends at around 21:00 with a meditation session which is always optional.

Package cost

The package price for the entire retreat includes the entire program tuition (yoga classes and lectures when appropriate), the use of all yoga equipment*, most meals, and accommodation for the entire duration of the retreat. The price does not include transportation and transfers to and from the retreat as well as travel insurances of any kind. As well, as mentioned above, in some retreats we skip a meal or two in order to eat together outside for example.

* Unless specified otherwise, you need to bring your own yoga mat. If you have a particular problem doing so please contact us in advance and we will try to help.
