There are unfortunately no refunds on this retreat, however transfers of names from you to a friend is totally fine.
All Retreat costs are to be finalised by December 1st.
Can I come solo?
Hell yes. You will find friends within 1 minute of being there, and will feel very much at home.
How will I know if i’ll get along with who is put in my room?
Mollie carefully picks who your put with based on your personality, age and gender. She does her very best to place you with people who you will get along with :)
When should I arrive and leave?
The retreat officially starts at 11am on the 4th of April. Mollie recommends you arrive the day before to ensure your not exhausted from travelling. You can book an extra night (the evening of the 3rd) if you wish, at an extra cost of $45. The same applies for the last evening of the Retreat on the 11th. The Retreat will finish at 6pm on the 11th, with an “unofficial” closing dinner for whoever wants to stay.
I want to come but am worried about what level of Yoga it will be.
Don’t stress! Mollie teaches in a way that caters to all levels of practitioner, and can even personally go through anything you wish with you. All of the classes and workshops are designed to give you tools to build your self practice and an awareness of your body and all that it can do! The classes are all optional too! You can come and not even do Yoga if you wanted. :)
India — you know, food poisoning and stuff…
Mollie assures you that she is only feeding you the highest quality, westerner friendly food - both in the centre and out. She does recommend bringing with you SB Probiotics specific for travel, Colloidal Silver and Activated Charcoal. She wont guarantee that you wont get Gastroenteritis, but knows about 6 good doctors within a 1km radius that can get rid of it within half an hour for you. You are safe.
What do I bring or wear?
Goa is quite liberal in what you can wear. It will be winter there in January, but its still quite warm. It cools down in the evening and into early mornings, so a light cardigan will suffice. When the sun comes out, summer clothes that we would wear at home (obviously still respectable) is okay. I do request that we respect the Shala and only wear culturally appropriate clothes. A shala in India is quite different to a Yoga studio at home. For ladies, 3/4 or full length tights and shirt/ singlets. Definitely no short shorts and crop tops. For men, shorts are fine, but shirts are compulsory.
Do I need a Yoga mat?
Mollie doesn't have spare Yoga mats, nor does the Shala. If you dont have a Yoga mat, or prefer not to travel with one - you can purchase a mat about 200m down the road for around $3.
If you have any other questions at all, please email Mollie — firstname.lastname@example.org
