Important information about current status in Portugal, changes to expect in our retreats

and updated booking, deposits & refund terms:

  • Our retreats here in Portugal will recommence as of July 18 in line with current health protection measures recommended and enforced by the Portuguese government. This is possible since we are hosting small groups only and the yoga classes are taking place outside on the (now extended!!) yoga deck and meals are also being served outside. With all the space that we have here, all minimum distance requirements can be met. And of course, we’ll be monitoring the situation and recommendations as they roll in. If needed, we'll adapt or cancel in which case we'll refund your deposit payment.
  • As of now it looks like all surfing courses can take place, even though we may have smaller groups at different time slots. We'll configure our program accordingly.
  • meals: will be served outside with spacious seating options.
  • rooms: we will try to make single rooms available whenever possible if this is important to you. Another option is to camp (in your own tent) for a discounted price.
  • group size: at the moment we can officially host a group of maximum 10 people. 
  • travel: The government is preparing to open Portugal for tourism again by June 1st, so we are optimistic about smooth and easy traveling here. However, we recommend that you either wait with flight bookings until closer to the start of retreat, or to book with travel insurance or check the terms of the airline for vouchers or refunds in case retreat gets canceled. 
  • We have updated our cancelation and refund policies.
    • Deposit payments of 350-450EUR (depending on the retreat and room choice) are only due 6 weeks prior to start of the retreat.
    • Deposits will go directly to the retreat location Olho Branco to cover for your food and accommodation. Ocean & Yoga won’t require any additional deposit from you at this time.
    • In case of unforeseen events on Portugal’s side (such as change in measures that won’t allow for us to host the retreat or boarder closings), we will refund the full deposit until 2 weeks before - for unforeseen changes thereafter, we will be able to pay back the portion for meals, but not for accommodation (which is approx. 50% of your paid deposit).
    • In the event that you can’t come because of changes in your country of origin or last minute flight cancelations, we will refund the portion for meals (about 50% of deposit, even until the day of start of retreat)
    • teachers & retreat content: Since we are working with international teachers, we don't know at this time if all of our teachers will be able to travel to Portugal at the time of the retreat. In the event of canceled flights or closed boarders, we will find an adequate solution and will inform you if the content & program of the retreat might be affected by this. If you don't want to participate under these circumstances, you may cancel and receive a voucher for another retreat with the respective teacher and a refund of the meals portion from the retreat location (your accommodation deposit is non-refundable in this case).
