Travel Insurance

We advise everyone to have Travel Insurance to cover them for the eventuality that they do have to cancel.

Travel Details

Please note that the retreat price does not include any travel. From Faro airport, you can take a local taxi directly to the yoga centre – it is a short drive, or depending on your arrival time, the centre can organise a driver to collect you if there are a number of students arriving around the same time – this will be a cheaper option.
If you would like to explore the area, we recommend a Hire Car to give you the freedom to get the most out of your time in the beautiful Algarve. It is easy to drive there and there are wonderful resorts and attractions all within a short drive of the Yoga Retreat Centre.
