Cancellation or postponement by Stone’s Throw Yoga​

We reserve the right to cancel or reschedule the retreat should there be extenuating circumstances beyond our control, including if our minimum number of attendees have not been met.

If the retreat is rescheduled or cancelled for any reason, you will have three options available to you:

  • Transfer your booking to the rescheduled date
  • Receive a credit for the amount you have paid towards any services or retail items at Stone’s Throw Yoga
  • A full refund of the amount paid.

Note that we can refund fees paid for our retreat services only. We are not responsible for any cancellation fees to airlines or any other agreements made by guests with outside operators.

Travel insurance/COVID

We strongly recommend arranging full travel/medical insurance that covers medical bills incurred while overseas, and cancellation of your booking for any reason. This should include falling ill with COVID and being unable to travel or participate in the retreat.

Please note that not all insurers cover cancellations due to COVID-19, so ensure you check your policy carefully. Most insurers also require that you obtain the policy at least 21 days prior to your trip.

Group bookings

For group bookings (three- or four-guest shared rooms), if anyone from your group cancels, we reserve the right to place another individual, who you may not know, in their place.

Alternatively, the rest of your group can choose to upgrade your place to the relevant accommodation type and pricing (triple or twin share).

Retreat and accommodation expectations

By booking the retreat, you understand that there are large amounts of free time scheduled, which is rest and recharge time for you and also the retreat organisers. It is up to you to decide how to manage this time for yourself or with the help of the Lanka Yoga team.

If you book any shared accommodation options as an individual, you understand that you will be paired with another attendee who you may not know. You acknowledge and agree to be kind, caring and accommodating to anyone who you share with. You also acknowledge that you may have to make some concessions and compromises to ensure that both you and your room partner have an enjoyable retreat experience.
