FAQ

 

Do you cater for dietary requirements?

 

Yes! We can accommodate most diets, allergies and dietary restrictions! You’ll be required to fill out your dietary restrictions before the retreat where you can indicate your specific needs! We strive to provide a culture experience with the food that’s served as well as offering healthy, fresh, locally sourced cuisine!

 

 

What is the average group size?

 

Each destination accommodates different sized groups, but typically its between 12- 16 guests and 2 retreat hosts!

 

 

What is the typically demographic of the group?

 

We welcome guests of all genders and ages (although they are18+!) We have a mix of women and men that join us and ages typically range from mid twenties to late fifties! Age is just a number, our guests know how to have a good time at all ages!

How much yoga will we do?

Be prepared to start the day with getting your sweat on! Most days will begin with an energizing Yoga Gym class first thing in the morning, followed by a day of exploring and adventure, finishing off with a more relaxing yoga class or Yoga tune up class before dinner (think foam rolling and massage in one!) Depending on the destination and extra activities, each day might be different. One day might be filled with an afternoon yoga inversion workshop, spending the day hiking through the most beautiful terrain, trying out yoga on stand up paddle boards or Kayaking/Surfing. There really is no limit to the fitness activities we enjoy! We love to experience new things together as a group!

 

Can we drink Alcohol?

Yes! If you want to! Forget the idea that yoga retreats are just juice cleanses, green tea and oming. This is your vacation, you spend it how you want too! Wine with dinner? Yes! Beers on the beach? YES! Speciality cocktails native to your destination! YES PLEASE! Although alcohol is not included in the price the choice is yours if you want to indulge!

How advanced do I have to be to join?

It’s easy to get intimidated thinking that the trip will be filled with expert yogis standing on their hands with ease but not to worry! Our escapes are for all levels! From beginner yogis/gym goers to fellow yoga teachers with advanced practices. There’s something for everyone! Just make sure you aren’t shy to work up a bit of a sweat!

 

Will we have free time?

Yes! There will be plenty of free time worked into the itinerary as well as optional excursions to keep you busy if you so desire! Relax by the pool reading a book or book an optional excursion, the choice is yours!


Can I come Solo?

YES! I know it can be scary to book a trip solo but that’s one of the best things about one of our escapes! You’ll meet the most amazing people!! You’ll meet new lifelong friends and you’ll break out of your comfort zone! We have a mixture of solo bookings, friends traveling together, sisters, brothers, cousins and couples! So don’t fret if your bestie can’t get the time off, book it anyways!


What other activities will we do?

The possibilities are endless! I take time to research the best of the best that your destination has to offer! Barefoot jungle hikes to secret water falls in Costa Rica, Catamaran sunset boozey cruises in Nicaragua, private yachts to our own private beaches in Greece, wine tastings in beautiful castles in Italy, hot air balloon rides over the African Safari or luxury train rides to Machu Picchu. We have A LOT of fun!

When should I aim to arrive and depart for a retreat?

 

We will send out details on the group transport from the airport prior to the trip but we suggest you arrive in the morning or night before of the retreat start date, so we can maximize our time that first day!

Do you offer payment plans?

Please note that your balance must be paid off one month prior to the retreat start date.
