Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Lifestyle Reboot Retreat?
Yemanya Travel's signature Lifestyle Reboot Retreat will show you how to make the life you've always dreamed a reality. Disconnect from your norm to reconnect with yourself and finally close the gap between where you are and where you want to be. You'll learn holistic practices and tools in the arenas of movement, nutrition, spirituality and life coaching to implement in daily life. The transformational retreat highlights the interrelation of mind, body and spirit, as all three work in harmony and affect overall well-being. You'll feel more centered, connected and full of vitality upon returning home but will also have the skills and commitment to keep it up long after your plane has landed.
Why is it exclusively for women?
The dynamic of an all-female group can be a divine one. We promote a safe, open environment for women to share themselves freely and partake in the retreats with inhibitions lowered.
Can I go by myself?
Of course! Yemanya Travel transformational retreats cater to both solo travelers and small groups of friends or family members, and are an excellent way to meet other like-minded women. If you are traveling solo, we'll match you with another traveler to share a room.
Do I need travel insurance?
Yes. Travel insurance is mandatory. There are several companies that offer it and we encourage you to research and find one that suits your individual needs. We recommend World Nomads, Travelex, John Hancock or IMG.
What level of activity are the excursions?
The excursions, such as trekking, are a moderate level of activity. However, we are happy to help you adjust any activity to suit your individual comfort level.
Are there any additional fees?
Airfare is not included, and any other inclusions and exclusions are outlined on the pricing page so you know up front what's on us and what's on you.
What types of women travel with Yemanya?
Yemanya Travel transformational retreats are for all types of women, but appeal most to those looking to dig deep and do the work to live the life they've always dreamed. It's less about a specific demographic or age, and more about a state of mind.
How many women are on each trip?
We like to keep it small and intimate; retreats will include a maximum of 16 participants.
What if I have never done yoga or meditated before?
That's fine! Yoga classes cater to all levels from beginner to advanced, and you are free to make any modifications necessary. Meditation is a powerful practice, but one that requires no prior discipline, only a willingness to calm the mind.
Do I have to participate in all activities?
Though we encourage participation in all activities to incur the benefits of a lifestyle reboot, full participation is not compulsory. This is your vacation, after all. If you want to sleep in one morning, relax and read a book by the pool one day, or tuck in early for some extra zzz's one night, we urge you to listen to your inner rhythms. You'll also have plenty of free time if you wish to enjoy additional activities.
What should I pack?
We will send you a detailed packing list 30 days prior to departure.
What is the payment and cancellation policy?
A $500 deposit is required to hold your spot, which is nonrefundable. Your spot is not reserved until we receive your deposit. Balance of payment is due 60 days prior to retreat start date. If full payment is received at time of booking, you may cancel until 60 days prior to the retreat start date to receive a refund, less the $500 deposit. No refunds are possible if cancellation is received within 60 days of retreat start date.
