Please ensure that your travel insurance covers the activities of this retreat as well as unexpected cancellation, sickness, losses and all other risks associated with traveling and taking part in the retreat. You should bring your travel insurance policy with you in case of an emergency. We can't advise on insurance, but you'll find lots of information here which can help.

We do not accept or assume any responsibility or liability for accidents, injuries or even death occurred while taking part in any trip. If you take part in activities whilst on holiday that have been organised and arranged independently of us, participation is at your own risk and it is your responsibility to ensure that you have obtained the relevant insurance.

 

  1. Your Health

(a) It is your responsibility to let your Yoga Teacher know if you have any injuries and to be mindful at all times of your own body’s capabilities during the retreat. If you experience any injury or discomfort during any activity during the retreat, then you must desist immediately.

In these circumstances you must obtain travel insurance to protect you from any risk that you cannot travel on the original date booked.

(d) If you develop Coronavirus symptoms while on the retreat, your host will assist you to get medical attention as soon as possible and ensure that you are well looked after until you can get home. It is important that you have travel insurance that covers medical costs incurred due to Coronavirus as all expenses for testing, treatment or self-isolation will need to be covered by you.

(e) If new travel restrictions are put in place by the UK government and we have to cancel your retreat, we will refund you in full within 14 days of the restrictions being put in place. Rather than cancel, we will do our best to reschedule your retreat and ask you to transfer your booking and payments to the new dates. If you are unable to attend the new retreat dates, but are willing to accept a credit note, then you can use this for any other retreat with no time limit. If you prefer a refund we will do this within 14 days, and your non-refundable deposit can instead be transferred for ANY future retreat with no expiry date.

(f) If you experience symptoms of COVID-19 before you are due to travel to the retreat, it is your responsibility to follow guidelines and self isolate for 14 days. If you cannot travel to the retreat because you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 and need to self isolate, inform us as soon as possible. You will receive a credit which will allow you to book a future retreat with us with no expiry date.

(g) If you begin to experience symptoms of COVID-19 with us while on a retreat, you must inform your retreat host immediately. If your retreat needs to be cut short due to needing to travel back home, you will receive a credit note for the days you did not attend the retreat.

If cancellation is made within 14 days of the start of the retreat we will retain the full amount paid by you.

(b) Bookings are for the stated period of the retreat. There are no refunds for an unused portion of the retreat. If the reason for cancellation is covered under the terms of your Insurance Policy, you may be able to make a claim on your own insurance.

 

  1. Amendments by us

Occasionally, changes may have to be made (e.g., yoga teacher, class times or other arrangements), which we reserve the right to do at any time. If your accommodation has to be changed, we will do our utmost to provide accommodation of a similar standard.
