+ Do I have to be an experienced yogi?
As long as you have been practicing for a minimum of 6 months then you are welcome to join us. We hold a very safe space and open our arms to anyone who feels strongly called to dive deeper in to the practices and study of yoga.
+ Do I have to do all the modules and labs?
If you are signing up for the 200hr option or would like the 100hr module as CPD then, yes, you need to attend all labs and modules. If you're just coming for the Embodiment immersion and would prefer to have more of an extended retreat then you are welcome to participate in that way.
+ Will we get any free time?
There will be one free day per module. The Embodiment Immersion is more restful with time for restorative practices in the late afternoons. Expression is more full.
+ What will I need to bring?
Laundry is cheap in Ubud and you can get a load done for less than a fiver. So don’t go crazy and pack 12 pairs of leggings. You’ll need yoga clothes for enough days to see you through before you can get to the laundry. And then you’ll need something comfortable to relax in, sleep in and swim in. Other than that, there are dozens of beautiful boutiques in town so leave some space in your suitcase! We also recommend bringing a backpack over a suitcase. Balinese pavements, ridges and roads are not too kind on wheelie cases.
+ Are there mosquitos?
Yes but they only come out at sunrise and sunset. We will provide an effective natural repellent but feel free to bring your own.
+ Do I need injections?
Check with your local travel clinic.
+ What about plug adaptors?
You can buy them in town so don’t worry too much but a world travel adapter is always a smart idea.
+ Is there wifi?
Yes but we encourage you to switch off while you’re immersing. It makes a huge difference to the outcome and your experience.
+ How do I get to Ubud or Tejakula from the Airport?
Taxis are safe, available and reasonably priced. Public transport is pretty much non-existent on the island but we can arrange for a private driver, if you prefer. Expect to pay 350,000IDR (approx $24 USD or £20).
+ Which airport do I fly into?
There is only one international airport in Bali, which is Denpasar airport, also called Ngura Rai International Airport.
+ Do I need a visa?
Yes but if you’re just staying for 30 days, visitors from most countries can get a Visa On Arrival. Make sure you check the specific regulations for your own country before coming. If you overstay you will be charged around $30 USD per day from the expiry of the visa, which can be paid in Indonesian Ruphiah as you enter customs.
+ Do I have to pay tax to enter or leave Bali?
There are no taxes to worry about when you enter or leave Bali
+ Will I need to bring any local currency?
There’s no need to bring cash, unless you feel more comfortable. There are ATMs at the airport and all over the island. Local currency is Indonesian Rupiah.
+What is Bali belly?
It can take a while for your tummy to adapt to a new diet and travelers can often experience an upset stomach. Make sure you have some charcoal tablets and rehydration salts, just in case. Don’t drink the tap water and avoid ice in drinks. Wash all fruit and veg in bottled water and keep your hands clean.
+ Is Ubud safe?
The Balinese people are incredibly trusthworthy and friendly but, as in any foreign country, stay alert and present.
+ When do i need to pay by?
Full payment is due no later than Feb 1st 2020 but you are welcome to pay in full at any time.
+ How will i know how to pay, where to stay and other details?
You will receive a welcome pack, upon payment of your deposit, with all detailed information.
