There will be no refund for additional services including but not limited to flights and airport transfers.

5.   Amendments by us

In the unlikely event we have to make any changes to your holiday, which may include but are not limited to change of itineraries, venue accommodation, yoga teacher or any other change, which we reserve the right to do at any time, you will be advised in writing. Changes are normally minor and we will advise you at the earliest possible date. If your accommodation has to be changed, we will do our utmost to provide accommodation of a similar rating.


Whilst we do our best to ensure that the yoga teacher advertised as the teacher for a particular holiday is the one who attends, on rare occasions we may have to change the yoga teacher and reserve the right to do so at any time. This would only happen in case of poor health/injury of the teacher or emergency and we would find a suitable replacement. As all our yoga teachers are of a very high standard, we consider that a change of teacher is a minor change.


If a significant change becomes necessary, we will inform you as soon as reasonably possible if there is time before your departure in line with the following conditions:


a. Compensation payments will not apply if payment of your holiday has not been received by the stipulated payment date.


b. We reserve the right in any circumstances to cancel the retreat, in which case we will offer a refund in full of all monies paid (unless the reason for cancellation is force majeure, see clause 5c).


c. Compensation will not be paid if we are forced to cancel or in any way change your holiday due to war, threat of war, invasion, riot, civil war, strike, rebellion, revolution, industrial dispute, terrorist activity, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, adverse weather conditions, technical or maintenance problems with transport, or other circumstances which amount to force majeure.  Please also ensure you have read and understood our Covid19 statement and policy.
