Yogazaz shall not be responsible for not fulfilling its contractual obligations to the extent that the failure to fulfil them is due to events outside its control, that is, force majeure events such as a pandemic, acts of God, fire, flood, cancellation of flights or/and prohibition of sailing due to adverse weather conditions, war, acts of terrorism, riot, civil commotion, governmental actions (excluding regulatory change), labour disputes, and any similar events. In such force majeure events, you’re entitled to transfer your full payment to another scheduled retreat or request a refund of your payment.

Currently you can travel without any restriction to Greece from other European coutries.

You acknowledge that it is your sole responsibility to review the following page and abide by the official general public health safety guidelines. If you don’t agree to follow the official travel instructions announced on the following page by the Greek government, normal cancellation policy will apply, should you decide not to join the retreat. 


Reservation of Right

Yogazaz reserves the right to make any changes deemed necessary to our retreats.


Travel Insurance

Guests must have adequate travel insurance to cover the retreat’s activities.

Please note, even if you have a private health insurance in Greece or your respective country of residence, it is unlikely that this insurance will cover overseas trips such as the retreats offered by Yogazaz.

It is your responsibility to organise suitable travel and health insurance. Although we strongly encourage you to do so, you acknowledge that Yogazaz is not in the business of providing insurance products and cannot be held liable if your failure to arrange suitable insurance coverage leaves you exposed, medically, financially, or otherwise.


Passports, Visas and Documents

It is the responsibility of each guest to obtain a valid passport, visa(s) and necessary certificates for traveling to Greece.

Although Yogazaz, its representative Elsa Keraudren, and the other voluntary staff present during the retreat will make all the reasonable efforts possible to minimize your exposure to any known risks, you acknowledge that Elsa Keraudren, the other instructors and volunteers serving you during the retreat are not certified medical providers and that they therefore have no medical expertise to i) determine the effects of any specific activity or ii) give you detailed medical advice on a health issue you might have.
