BEFORE YOU GO
At World Yoga Trips, your experience starts while you're still at home. We agree that the little details matter, and we make sure you know everything you need to know before you've even left your living room. We get you all the information you need to pack perfectly. The only thing we can't do is help you remember your toothbrush (but we'll have a fresh one for you if you forget it)!
For your convenience, World Yoga Trips partners with local shuttle services that offer airport pick-up service on Sunday mornings/afternoons before check-in, and Saturday mornings/afternoons after check-out for an additional fee per-person. Participants traveling long-distances to our international yoga retreats may be able to save money by sharing a shuttle from/to the airport. Please call 415-830-6340 no sooner than one week prior to your retreat to see if this is possible (this may not be possible in all cases).
Our Trip Handbooks tell our registered participants everything they need to know before coming to their retreat, from check-in/out procedures to community life, daily schedules and other helpful information.
Travel Insurance, Documents and Immunizations
All travelers must esign our Participant Agreement by two weeks prior to their retreat.
World Yoga Trips requires each international yoga retreat participant to purchase individual insurance for their trip. We suggest you include "cancel for any reason" with your policy. You must purchase travel insurance that includes medical coverage. We recommend our partner, World Nomads!
It is the responsibility of each traveler to obtain all required travel documents including Visas and other travel documents unless otherwise noted. Information regarding necessary documentation is provided per our Trip Handbook or you can contact us for more detailed information regarding your retreat requirements. It is your responsibility to purchase correct immunizations. Please contact your nearest travel clinic for the latest requirements.
The Right Attire
When it comes to yoga, we'll make sure you're perfectly prepared for the classes you'll be doing and the climate you'll be doing them in. We draw on our extensive experience in the region of the world to arm you with the knowledge to pack like a pro, even if it's your first time. You also won't need to go on a big shopping spree before you go. We'll give you a list of the yoga wear we recommend - you'll likely have most of it in your closet already. Got the very latest stuff from Lululemon? Great. Be sure to bring it along. But we also find that cotton tank tops still work just fine!
We know that having a little perspective can help make your first international yoga retreat experience, well, less scary. That's why we'll include some great articles and book recommendations with our Trip Handbook!
