Information about Covid-19 and our retreats

Updated October 27 2020

If you have already enrolled, or if you are thinking about participating in a retreat with us at Håå Retreat Center:

Here is information about the steps we have taken regarding Covid-19.

We are following, and keeping up to date with, the guidelines from The Public Health Agency of Sweden. As things stand, we offer our retreats according to our retreat schedule. If there are changes, we will let anybody affected know and this page will be updated.

As long as the Public Health Agency recommends it, we will caution our retreat participants and our colleagues to keep social distance, and to wash their hands often. In our dining-hall we will avoid crowding, and keep a good hygiene with simple routines. We are limiting the number of retreat participants, so that we can follow all recommendations. On all retreats until Jan 17 2021, every person will have their own yoga mat and blanket, and a private bedroom (as long as you are not coming to the retreat together with another participant). If you want to ensure a private bathroom, then click on “single room” in the enrollment form.

Our way of teaching works well in this situation: we give clear and easily understandable instructions, which make it easy to avoid physical contact between teacher and student.

If you feel ill in the weeks preceding your trip here, please stay at home. We will then move your enrollment and payment (minus a cancellation fee of 15% of the full retreat fee) to another retreat during 2020 or 2021. If anyone should feel ill during a retreat, they will immediately be asked to isolate themselves in their room. We will request medical assistance if necessary.

During 2020, we cannot accept retreat participants from outside of Europe on our retreats. If you belong to a group particularly at risk from the virus, we advise against participating on the retreat.

If a retreat gets cancelled, we will refund the whole course fee; or you can move the fee to another retreat later on in time. At the moment, however, many of our retreats are nearly fully booked.

Please feel free to contact us on our email address if you have any questions.

Welcome on a Håå retreat!

All the best

from us at Håå Retreat Center
