Deposits are non-refundable, however if we have a waitlist we will connect you with a student interested in taking your place.  You can work directly with them and notify us together to update the name of the reservation.

Coming solo but on a budget?  Reserve a shared room and we will place you with a roommate.  Most of our retreat goers book shared rooms and typically don't have a "pre-arranged" roommate.  We host a Pre-trip meet up so you'll get the opportunity to make friends in advance if that's important to you.  

Already reserved & looking for next steps?  We will contact you within 3 days to confirm your reservations and welcome you to our retreat.  A full itinerary will be available in mid-December.  We will communicate with you prior to then to get dietary restrictions, yoga history (so we include your favorite postures!), emergency contact info, liability release (if you are new to sacred thread), flight details and contact info.  Each retreat is prepped by an optional "pre-retreat gathering" in Atlanta.  This allows you to meet those you'll be with and, perhaps, arrange shared excursions if interested.  This is totally optional and typically half of our group will attend.
