Lotus Lodge Beach Yoga Holiday FAQ
I am a solo traveller, is this ok?
The majority of our guests travel to us on their own to take a much needed break away from the pace of day-to-day life. You will meet other like-minded people who are with us for a healthy break. Guests often arrange to eat out together in the evenings and there is also the option to self-cater in the kitchen at the lodge. During free time some guests like to spend time exploring the island together, other guests are happy to enjoy the beautiful beaches and down time on their own – whatever your needs are, Azul offers a fun and safe environment for solo travellers of all ages.
I have never done yoga before, is this ok?
We offer classes for levels from beginner to advanced, so join us if you would like to try yoga for the first time. The group sizes are kept small so the the instructor can give each student plenty of one-to-one attention and ensure that they are being challenged safely at their level.
How many people do you typically have for a week?
Group size varies from two to ten people. We like to keep group sizes small as this allows individuals to have more attention and be better equipped to accomplish their goals.
I have an illness/injury, will I be able to take part in your classes?
Please see information on special conditions here. In all of our classes you are encouraged to go at your own pace and to listen to your body. We try, where possible to take note of any injuries or illnesses you have and offer you suitable modifications and adjustments. In cases or serious injury, illness, or pregnancy we ask that you book our wellbeing class package, offering you private tuition, at your own pace, for your wellbeing. If you have any serious doubts about attending the retreat, you should seek advice from your doctor.
What kind of yoga equipment does Azul provide?
Azul supplies yoga mats, and straps and blocks, where necessary.
Can I book with Azul anytime?
Our retreats start each Saturday afternoon, and run for 7 nights, with checkout the following Saturday. Checkout is at 11:00am but we are happy for you to stay on site through the day if you have an evening flight. We try, where possible, to accommodate arrival dates early in our set weeks, as flights to the island can be difficult to find at certain times of year. Long weekends and long breaks can be accommodated where possible. Please contact us with your requirements. We can recommend alternate accommodations nearby to the retreat should you want to arrive early, or depart later than our set dates.
What are check-in and check-out times?
Check-in and check-out times vary to accommodate people’s arrival times. Check-in is generally from 12 noon through to 9pm. Guests are welcome to stay in their accommodation until 11am on busy arrival days, and we ask that departing guests place their belongings in a secure area so that the rooms may be prepared for new arrivals.
