frequently asked questions - terms & conditions

Who can join?

Our programs are made for beginner and intermediate practitioners off all age, experience, level and fitness - it is not about the yoga pose, it is about the experience, how it makes you feel and allow your breath & prana expand. If you are a experienced practitioner, you might enjoy the individual approach and support in specific poses or practices and catch up with the basics. 
If you have any doubts about pregnancy, any injuries, pains or other issues, please inform us and contact your doctor prior to the start of your program.

How big are the groups? 

The usual size of the group is between 6 and 8 people, so it is a very individual and personal experience as we love to interact with our guests and make their stay as unique as possible. During high season it can occur that the group is slightly bigger, e.g. the christmas program offers place up to 15 people in a spacious accommodation. For our Portugal weeks at Monte Velho Eco Resort, we have up to 40 people arriving as this is a big event, with different workshops and classes all day. On the other hand you can always chose your private program and have a stay and yoga teacher just for yourself, adapting to your wishes and needs only.

 

What are the times for check in & check out?

Generally the check in time is from 16:00 - 22:00 on arrival day and the check out until 10:00 on departure day. We are trying to adapt to the individual times of our guests as much as possible, and we are happy to offer the storage of luggage if arriving earlier and/or leaving later.

The general, classes will contain most of following yoga styles: Vinyasa Yoga, Hatha, Restorative, Yin & Yoga Nidra.

On request - especially for our private yoga programs - we modify according to your wishes.

We do not use refined salts, sugars, stocks, etc. Please let us know if you have any allergies or strong dislikes against some foods, herbs, or spices so that we can prepare accordingly.

 

Schedule

The schedules are only sample schedules and are flexible. As we have a couple of outdoor activities, the schedule can vary due to the weather. We always do our best to make it perfect for everyone, but if you have any concerns or complaints, please get in touch with the Lets Yoga staff in order to sort everything out as soon as possible. 

If at any time you feel like taking some time for yourself, to relax and to not participate at some parts of the program, it´s all good - do what´s best for your soul; but please inform Lets Yoga so they know.

 

Surfing

If you are participating the yoga & surf program, please be informed that the schedules will adapt daily due to the weather and tide conditions. Please notice that it is possible that you might not be able to join every part of the program because of the surfing, or you might even want to take some relaxing time for yourself. If the surf is in the morning, you will get a brunch box to take away instead of the brunch at your accommodation.

The Surf School has a third party public liability insurance. Therefore, we recommend you to contract an adequate holiday insurance as well as personal accident insurance for any incident/injuries that may sustain while travelling and practicing surfing during your stay.

Overbooking or "Underbooking"

We give our best to prevent these cases, but in times of modern technology, overbooking can occur through another platform that is promoting and selling LetsYoga´s products, e.g. In the case of overbooking of our accommodation, LetsYoga organizes an alternative stay in another accommodation that (if not discussed otherwise) will have the same attributes as the option you chose and booked nearby, and/or organizes the transportation of you to the retreat place to join the program if it is not in a short walking distance.

In the case of "underbooking", which varies from package to package, but is usually a minimum of 2 people booking a group package, LetsYoga reserves the right to call off a booking and cancel your holiday, paying you back your deposit of course until a week before start.

 

Other Insurances

We recommend you to contract an adequate holiday insurance as well as a personal accident insurance for any incident/injuries/ loss that may sustain while travelling and practicing yoga, hiking and any water activity, like surfing, etc. during your stay.  With your signature, you affirm that you are joining this program at your own risk (on and off site the building). You are aware that there is no insurance, coverage or compensation provided for any kind of damages, accidents or losses.

 

Indemnity

The credit that Lets Yoga can apply is only for the classes. Meals, accommodations, air faires, any other expenses you may incur from having to depart early are to be met by you. There are NO REFUNDS if arriving later or departing earlier for other reasons. I agree that I will not hold Lets Yoga, Nina Gehrke and any of its teachers, partners, owners of the accommodation or yoga practicing places liable for any injury, loss or illness that may occur to me during this program.
