Yoga Retreat FAQs

What kind/style of yoga retreat is this?

Just like the classes we offer at Wilmington Yoga, our yoga retreats offer different styles of yoga including flow practices, yin yoga and gentle and meditation practices.  Classes will be held both indoors and outdoors where possible.  Meals are fresh and healthy and specific food requirements or preferences can be addressed.

Is plane fare included in the cost of the retreat?

The retreat cost does not include plane fare.  You are responsible for securing your own flights to and from the retreat.  In the past many of our retreat participants have used Tracy Beaver as a travel agent. Travel agent Tracy Beaver can be reached with questions regarding travel plans at email tracy@worldtravelmates.com and at phone number 704-697-1514.

Wilmington Yoga Center strongly recommends travel agent, Tracy Beaver of World Travel Mates, for bookings and flight information. Tracy can also arrange additional tour packages not included in your retreat itinerary. She can put together a group trip for participants that flies in and out of Wilmington, NC, which allows our group to meet one another, travel together, and possibly receive a group discount if everyone is on the same flight. If you will be flying in from another city, state, or country, Tracy will arrange for you to connect with the group on an airport layover or upon arrival at the destination airport. She is your main contact while in transit.

Will we all be on the same flight?

Everyone attending will be booking their flight separately so its highly unlikely that everyone attending will be on the same flight.

Do I have to be “good” at yoga or even do yoga to participate in the retreat?

All retreats include daily yoga classes, but they are 100% optional.  Some of the yoga classes will be all levels classes and some will be more vigorous.  We are happy to have you participate in all, some, or none of these classes!  This is your retreat, and we want you to feel comfortable choosing which activities you would like to be a part of throughout the length of your stay.

Some retreat participants choose to use this time to rest, sight see, or participate in local activities outside of the retreat itinerary.

Where are the teachers from?

All teachers attending the retreat currently teach at Wilmington Yoga Center.  All of our teachers are experienced, compassionate and dedicated practitioners who will do their to best to ensure you have an amazing experience.

Do I have to participate in all retreat activities?

All retreat activities are entirely optional.  There will be an itinerary of yoga classes, volunteering, or a group excursion each day which are included in your retreat cost.  Your participation is completely voluntary.

Some retreat participants choose to use this time to rest, sight see, or participate in local activities outside of the retreat itinerary.  We respect and encourage you to make this time your own and to meet your needs each day.  Our one request is that you take care of yourself so that when we are together as a group at the volunteer portions of the trip we can move with one mission – sending love to these beautiful children!

Will there be free time for other are activities?

Absolutely!  You are always welcome to arrange any activities that you are interested in.  These costs are not included in the package with Wilmington Yoga Center but all are welcome to create any schedule that helps you make the most of your experience!

What is the typical age group of past participants?

We’ve had participants of all ages from their mid 20’s right through their mid 60’s.

Do most people book with a friend(s) or is it common from people to go alone?

Many participants book with friends, but many also go alone.  It’s about a 50/50 split.
