2. Do you sleep triple rooms?
The bedroom layouts offer triple room (sofa bed), twin or single occupancy.
3. Can I come on my own?
Yes! It is not uncommon for people to come on retreats on their own. If your preference is a twin share, we will pair you up with a fellow retreat bird. In our experience very special and unique connections are made on retreat so you needn't worry!
4. Is there alcohol?
Yes! We are all about with balance birds! We like to enjoy wine or beer with our meal & well also take an excursion to the most BEAUTIFUL winery for tapas & wine tastings in the sun! NB. Alcohol is not included in the price.
5. Is it vegetarian?
The retreat food is all home cooked, a lot of which comes from their own land! The food is predominantly vegetarian, though it may include some fish dishes. We can accommodate vegan/vegetarian or other dietary requirements. Please ensure you let us know of any dietary requirements or allergies upon booking.
6. Do I need YOGA experience?
Yoga experience is not necessary. We will ensure all classes are achievable & challenging enough for everyone with us. Turning up to be on the mat is often the hardest part of yoga!
7. Do I need to participate in everything?
You can choose to be as active or as restful as you like!
8. Is there WIFI?
Yes there is wifi, we are rural Portugal though so connections can be slow. An even better excuse to switch off!
9. What to bring?
Pack light! A carry on case will suffice.
Packing list... yoga & active wear, a drink bottle, a wrap/blanket & woollen socks for sunrise meditation, swimsuits, a hat & sunblock, running/walking shoes, maybe something nice to wear to the vineyard, a journal & pen, a book to escape in. Your rooms provide towels, soap & shampoo. There is a hairdryer also (you'd be surprised how many retreaters ask this!!)
