FAQ

Is this retreat available to all levels? 

The yoga retreat with Alyson & Becky is available to all levels. 

Are there any check-in and check-out hours?

Please make your travel arrangements to arrive after 4:00 PM on October 11th. Check-out is at 10:00 AM on the last day, October 18th, after breakfast.

 

Is Wi-Fi available?

Yes.

 

I am vegetarian/vegan. Can I book this retreat?

Yes. Vegetarian, vegan, and all other diets are catered for if announced in advance. Please note, however, that we cannot accommodate severe, life-threatening allergies.

 

How do I get to the retreat venue?

We recommend allowing more time for international travel and arriving in Italy a day before the retreat starts so that you may adapt to the new time zone ahead of the retreat. Please hold off booking flights until the retreat becomes guaranteed. Once the retreat becomes guaranteed we will send out options for either a taxi or shuttle if enough of us arrive at the same time. 

 

What should I pack? 

Please pack appropriate clothing, sunscreen, a swimsuit, insect repellent, a cardigan for chilly evenings, comfortable shoes, a sun hat and sunglasses, personal care items, and any personal medication you might need.

 

Can I do laundry while on the retreat?

Laundry facilities are available at the retreat venue and you are welcome to use them for free during your stay.

 

What yoga props do I need ?

Nothing, unless you would prefer to bring your own yoga mat. However, the facility has all mats and props available. 

 

What’s the weather like in Sicily in October?

The weather in early October in Sicily is usually sunny and warm. You can expect average highs of 30°C / 86°F during the day that drop to around 18°C / 65°F at night. In recent years, however, temperatures have varied unpredictably. It is a good idea to check the weather yourself before your departure to the art retreat and to pack accordingly.

 

How many people are to be expected at the retreat?

Maximum 16 participants.

 

Do I need a visa?

Guests traveling from the US, Canada, EU, UK, and/or Schengen member states may enter Italy for tourist purposes without a visa. Please contact us for further guidance.

 

Are there any age restrictions?

The retreat is open to anyone aged over 18.

I'm afraid of insects. Can I join?

Please be mindful that the retreat venue is located in a lush natural park, therefore it should be expected that you will encounter some insects during your stay. If you leave your door or window open throughout the day or night, some insects might come into the room, as there are no window screens. Do not worry, however, there are no dangerous insects in the Madonie Natural Park.

 

What happens if I need to cancel?

All bookings are nonrefundable under any circumstances. Once payment is made, it is considered final. In the event of cancellation, regardless of the reason, no refunds will be granted.

 

Participants are required to purchase travel, medical, and cancellation insurance for protection against any circumstances that might require cancellation or change of travel arrangements. This insurance should cover any potential losses incurred due to cancellation or no-show, including but not limited to medical emergencies, travel disruptions, or personal circumstances. We are not affiliated with any travel insurance providers. It is your responsibility to secure appropriate insurance coverage that includes trip cancellation and interruption protection. We highly recommend reviewing the terms and conditions of your chosen insurance provider to understand the coverage and claim process.

 

We will gladly provide the essential documentation to support refund claims with the insurance provider.
