Food

All of the food cooked and presented on our retreats is vegetarian. Our meals are cooked from local and where possible organic produce which supports independent farmers. We recycle waste in each retreat destination. We are passionate that our retreats should make a positive impact on our guests and the locations we choose to hold them.

The meals will be served at our outdoor table when its dry and sunny or inside in our communal dining area.

Fresh coffee, a variety of teas and healthy snacks will be available at all times.

Drinking water is always available and you can collect your own fresh mountain water when at our location in Mallorca.

You will be asked to inform us of any food allergy or special dietary requirements you may have upon registering.

Working together as a team..

Revive You Yoga Retreats respectfully ask you to tidy after eating or preparing any of your own snacks, drinks, or any items of food you may have purchased during your stay. This is to help keep the guest kitchen tidy at all times, out of respect for others.

After all other meals, the crockery will be taken away by the villa hosts for cleaning. This enables the hosts and you coordinate as a team, in order to move quickly together to the next activity. We as hosts are very much about family, teamwork, and sharing.

Ethos

We are passionate that our retreats should make a positive impact on our guests and the locations we choose to hold them.

We support the local community where we can by sourcing as much fresh, local & organic produce (where possible) for all our retreats.

We also work with GROWN.IE by planting 1 tree per person that visits our retreats. That’s €12 per person. It’s our way of giving back to Mother Earth. See more info here www.grown.ie

  • A good book
  • A journal to process and write down your thoughts
  • Refillable water bottle when you’re on our active retreats
  • Appropriate clothing for the country/weather. On an Irish retreat it’s nice to bring slippers and comfy clothes to potter about in! We give full advice on what to pack in our welcome letter for other retreats and holidays
  • A few changes of yoga wear – our retreats offer yoga classes at least twice a day (mornings and evenings).
  • Good walking shoes for hikes or general traveling about. And sandals for beach destinations.
  • Ear plugs
  • A blanket or shawl for Savasana

I’m coming alone, is this ok?

Yes! We really hope you do decide to join us. We have a mix of people who decide to come with friends and those who would like to travel alone. Remember if you are deciding to join us alone, then there is a likelihood that there are other like-minded people who will be feeling the same! We always recommend sharing a twin room- it might sound intimidating but it’s an amazing way to feel a sense of community and sharing, and there are always lots of spaces to relax and unwind if you do need to escape a bit.

What’s a typical group like?

Ah this is a difficult one! We love that people of all walks of life join us on our retreats, so it is hard to sum up a typical group. However, there are a few things that unite all of our groups: they tend to be made up of friendly, like-minded people, single travellers, couples, friends and groups, people are respectful towards each other and people are looking to relax, unwind and have fun in a safe, welcoming setting.

How many people do you have in a group?

We run such a range of retreats in different venues the number varies. It usually starts at approximately 10 ranging up to 20 maximum. We have been doing this a while so have learnt a really good balance, and the groups always feel intimate, with enough staff to make sure you are well looked after.

I have specific dietary requirements, can I still come?

Yes- we can cater for any dietary requirement. We are vegetarian on our retreats. However, when you go out for group meals on our holidays, some people do choose fish options.

Can I stay another night?

The best thing to do if you want to extend your stay is get in contact with us at info@reviveyouretreats.com

Are men welcome?!

We get asked this all the time, and of course, the answer is yes.

How do I get to your retreats and holidays by public transport?

We make sure that all of our retreats are accessible by public transport or flights, we can organise a group taxi share from the airport/station to the venue. This saves money and is obviously better for the environment. Our holidays sometimes include transfers, sometimes it is an additional cost, but you can rest assured that we always make sure you are looked after travelling to and from the venue.
