COVID-19 Practices

We’re ready to welcome you back!

Effective 24 December 2021 

The health, safety and comfort of our guests and staff are of utmost importance.

If you have felt unwell (fever, cough, sore throat and shortness of breath) or have been in contact with a possible positive case within the previous 7 days, please consider other guests, our staff and the welfare of our Yoga community and postpone your stay. (We do not want you to miss out – we offer 3 years window to reschedule.) 

Swami’s Yoga Retreat will continue to adhere to best practices and guidelines during the pandemic and modify these protocols as appropriate.

Read below for more details before your visit. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Swami’s soon – safe travels!
