The grand and elegantly restored finca is surrounded by its own private gardens, pool, palm trees, juice bar, and beautiful yoga shala. Spa treatments are available at additional cost. Peaceful secure location with professional management staff and chef, located in a lovely historic village, Santanyí, with colorful shops, and street markets. Beaches and trails are close by, including Cala Llombards beach just 15 minutes by car. Several other beaches, hidden coves, and a nature preserve with coastal trails are within 30 minutes drive. A rental car is recommended for those who like to explore the area. Get in touch with nature and your true Self. No crowds of tourists here! The retreat is designed to serve your total wellbeing, so liquor and wine are not served at the retreat. You can always find wine at the nearby restaurants if you prefer, but we encourage you to consider the benefits of abstaining (`de-toxing`) from alcohol for the retreat. 😉

Cancellations between 30 and 60 days will receive 50% refund. Within 30 days of the event, no refunds are possible. If the entire event must be cancelled, for example due to natural disaster, all fees and deposits paid by the participants will be refunded. Travel expenses are not included (i.e. airline tickets) and cannot be reimbursed. Consider whether travel insurance might be appropriate for you. We reserve the right to continue with an alternate teacher in the unlikely event that Karl Straub is unable to attend due to illness or other emergency.

ARRIVAL / CHECKIN
Plan to check-in on the first day between 3 – 7pm so that you can be relaxed and ready to join us for dinner at 7:30pm. Checkout time: last day after brunch by 11:00. Please be advised we cannot offer partial refunds for unused days or meals.

MEALS
Excellent vegetarian meals 2x daily (MAR & NOV) or 3x daily (FEB) are included in the retreat price. All meals are chef-prepared, delicious vegetarian, buffet style. A few items may include egg and dairy and these will be indicated. No meat and no alcohol are served at the retreat. The Feb meals are simpler in presentation, yet still fresh and delicious ;).

ALLERGIES
The registration form has a space for you to specify food allergies. The chef prepares well in advance for any special needs, and last-minute menu variations may not be possible. So, if you have any allergies or special dietary need not noted in your signup, please advise Cal Reiet team at least two weeks in advance.

MINDFULNESS / SILENCE
We start / end each day with silence, as indicated on the schedule. Cal Reiet has an amazing professional service team, but we do not lean on them heavily as one might at a typical resort. For example, I encourage all my retreat participants to bring their own used dishes to the service area. This is just one of many ways that our practice of mindfulness, compassion, and silence set a joyful and relaxed tone for the entire retreat experience — for the support team as well as our participants! The whole community feels uplifted, mutually supported, in balance. Thanks for joining us!

MEDITATIVE WORK (February retreat only)
Daily meditative work, about 40 min, is integral to our February retreat. For example sweeping garden path, setting cushions on the pool deck, organizing the yoga shala, chopping vegetables, setting tables, general cleanup, etc. The tasks are simple, easy, and perfect for focus, mindful community building, and support. We approach the work as a meditation practice: no rush, no judgement, no stress. Each of us benefits the overall function and wellness of the group. All participants for February retreat are kindly requested to take part. Specific times and instructions for each person`s role will be provided at breakfast on our first morning together.

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU: Clothing for warm and cool weather, sun hat, sunglasses, sun screen lotion, rain jacket, sturdy walking shoes or boots, house slippers or pool-side sandals, beach towel.

WHAT IS PROVIDED The retreat provides yoga mats, blocks, bolsters, straps, and meditation cushions. Of course you are welcome to bring your own yoga mat if you prefer.

FITNESS Physical and mental health is presupposed for all participants. This event is not intended as a substitute for psychotherapy and/or medical treatment.

PETS No pets allowed at the retreat. We love animals, however the retreat center cannot accommodate pets.
