Covid-19  Safety Measures 

We can accomodate guests living in a tier 1 and tier 2 area.  If you live in a tier 2 area you will be able to join in the yoga which is socially distanced, we can provide you with your own small table in the dining room, so you can eat alone or with your partner, but you will not be able to use the communal living areas and mix with other guests.  Where possible we will allocate you a bedroom with a seating area so you have a lovely space to relax on you own.

To make it easier to socially distance we are limiting the numbers by a third to 12 on this retreat, and  encouraging guests to take a single  room as much as possible.  

All high touched surfaces and  bathrooms will be cleaned regularly throughout the retreat, and we will be asking guests to wipe down handles and taps after each use. Hand santiser will be widely available and we encourage you to also bring your own. We ask that you wash your hands regularly. 

Guests will be split into social bubbles of up to 6, sharing bathrooms, dining tables and living rooms to relax in. 

Meals will be socially distanced and appropriately served to allow for this.  

Guests are to maintain 2m social distance from other guests at all times where possible and to wear masks in communal areas other than during meals and yhoga.

We are asking that you bring your own yoga mat and props where possible. If this is not possible we can provide, and they will have been thoroughly cleaned before you use them. 

We ask guests to carefully monitor their health in the run up to the retreat, and if they have any symptoms at all they do not come on the retreat.   Make sure you have travel insurance, which includes cancellation, in  incase you need to cancel due to having covid-19.
