You should bring your own travel insurance policy with you in case of an emergency.

(b) It is also your responsibility to consult a doctor with an understanding of yoga to check that you are sufficiently fit and healthy to undertake yoga classes and other physical activities that you may chose to do whilst on the retreat.
(c) Please advise us of any mental or physical health conditions, allergies and dietary requirements before you book. If you have health conditions and dietary requirements that may be affected by the activities offered on our retreats we reserve the right to advise you to desist and in the interests of your health, or others, we may decline your stay at our retreats.

(a) You acknowledge that you are choosing to travel at a time where you may be exposed to the COVID-19 virus. We will take all reasonable steps to ensure your safety and may require you to follow additional safety protocols on the retreat. It is your own responsibility to acquaint yourself with all relevant travel information, including applicable health risks, and the nature of your itinerary. You acknowledge that your decision to travel is made in light of consideration of this information and you accept that you are aware of the personal risks associated with such travel. We accept no liability in relation to these additional risks. We accept no liability for any guest contracting the COVID-19 virus and cannot be held liable.
(b) By booking a retreat with us you acknowledge and understand that over the coming months there is the risk of further government travel restrictions due to Covid-19.
(c) Where you choose to book a retreat with us, you agree and acknowledge that there is an increased risk of you being unable to attend the retreat on that date due to ongoing or new travel restrictions from the government due to Covid-19. 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 carry out a test. In the case of a positive test, you will not be permitted to attend a retreat for 10 days. After 10 days of receiving a positive test you may attend a retreat if you have tested negative for COVID-19. It is your responsibility to follow any current government guidelines and self isolate. 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. In the case that you cannot travel due to testing positive with COVID-19 or needing to self-isolate due to experiencing symptoms, we cannot offer any refunds and it is your responsibility to obtain adequate travel insurance to cover your costs in the case of no longer being able to attend the retreat.
(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, we cannot offer any refund or credit note for the days missed or cancelled.

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. If a significant change becomes necessary, we will inform you as soon as possible before your departure.
9. Cancellation by us
