PACKING CHECKLIST

WHAT TO BRING

 

As you get ready, we would like to offer some suggestions about what to bring. The number one suggestion is not to over pack! We do not offer a laundry service, due to the water shortage on the island, so bring only what you feel necessary for a week.

 

  • Clothes that you can stretch and breathe in.

  • Bring layers and some warm clothes as it will get cooler in the evenings and mornings. In April, May, September and October bring a sweater or jacket. It may also rain during these months, so warm shoes and a rain jacket could prove useful.

  • Prescription and OTC medications. There is a pharmacy in the local town, but this is a boat ride away on the mainland so please make sure you have enough for the duration of the retreat.

  • Bathing suits, sunglasses, sunscreen (No P20 please) & flip flops or any amphibious shoes.

  • if you do suffer reactions from Mosquito bites we suggest you bring your preferred repellant, and some antihistamines. We do supply natural mosquito repellent in your rooms,  have plug in mosquito repellent and mosquito nets. PLEASE NO DEET.

  • iPod or musical instruments.

  • Walking / running shoes.

  • A book or two to relax with. We do have a bookshelf with lots of good reads.

  • Alarm clock to get up for your morning yoga practice

  • Camera with extra memory cards and binoculars if you wish.

  • Adaptors for your electrical equipment. We have standard European two-pronged plugs.

  • Ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. We are in nature, so some sounds may be unfamiliar. In August, there is a night club across the way on mainland that can go on until the early hours of the morning.

  • **Cash: Kindly arrange Euros before you leave. There are ATM machines available at the Airport, but NOT at the bus station or in the local village, so please make sure you have enough cash for your travels, bus fare, any optional therapeutic practices as offered by the teacher above and for the local products for sale at our market day.

 

WHAT NOT TO BRING

 

  • Yoga props (we have plenty of mats, blankets, blocks, straps and meditation cushions)
