Do I need to be a certain level of fitness/yoga practitioner to join this retreat?
We welcome yoga students of all levels, from absolute beginners to advanced practioners. Yoga retreats are not just for the person who practices every day and can touch the floor with their elbows. Our retreats offer opportunities for growth and new experience, no matter how much time you have spent on your mat. Regardless, we suggest keeping an open mind and trying out practices that might be new to you.
What if I'm travelling alone?
About half our participants come alone and often come away with lifelong friends. If you’re travelling alone, a yoga retreat is the best way to meet new people with similar interests in a safe and healthy environment. If you book accommodation with a shared room, we'll pair you with a roommate.
Do I need to purchase travel insurance?
Travel insurance for all of our international yoga retreats is mandatory. Unfortunately we cannot allow participation unless proof of travel insurance is sent to us before. Purchase your travel insurance within a week of purchasing your plane flight.
Compare Insurance Options at SquareMouth.com. We highly recommend that you add “cancel for any reason” to your policy. Although normal trip cancellation will cover you for illness or injury, or for a travel companions illness, injury or death, it is limited to these. With “cancel for any reason” you will receive a percentage (usually 75%-100%) of all pre-paid costs. With this coverage if something comes up, a wedding, a new job opportunity, etc. or if YOGASCAPES has to cancel due to weather, staff injury or illness or other unforeseen reasons, you will be covered. *This option needs to be purchased within 15 days of your trip deposit.
We suggest this policy from Travel Guard or similar:
