Join Tim Kelleher, owner of Boston Yoga Union, for 5 nights / 6 days of yoga, wellness, and exploration in the Azores, Portugal.
The Azores are a volcanic land, full of natural, raw beauty, a temperate climate and outdoor activities. Truly an adventure lovers paradise, and just under 5 hours from Boston, these islands are known as the "Hawaii of the mid-atlantic" and are not to be missed!
We will be staying on the "Green Island" of Sao Miguel, home to vibrant blue volcanic lakes, black sand beaches, lush natural preserves, and panoramic cliffs. Our days will include hikes to some of the most stunning vistas on the island, soaks in natural volcanic hot springs, and cultural exploration of neighboring villages and cities.
Daily yoga classes will be offered by Tim, and there will also be plenty of time for relaxation amongst the quiet grounds of our 5-star resort. All meals (with the exception of 2 lunches) are included, and will be nourishing, fresh, and delicious, so that you can get a true taste of Azorean fare.
A €500 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your spot on this retreat. The balance is due 120 days prior to departure, and we can set up a payment plan for you if needed. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about payment plan options.

Registrants are personally responsible for complying to local laws, at their own expense. Such expenses may include, but are not limited to:
The purchase of travel insurance is required for this trip.
Most policies protect you against potential trip delays or cancellations due to airline issues, family emergencies, illness, injury, etc. The travel insurance will also demonstrate to the host country that you are able to pay for any emergency services which may be necessary during your stay.
SolSeed is not authorized to sell travel insurance. Any offer to purchase travel insurance that you encounter during the checkout process are third party offers. You are free to select your own policy provider. If you would like to review options in a convenient online marketplace, we like what www.insuremytrip.com has put together. We have also had great experience with Trawick International and their customer service, and heard very good things from AAA Members who have purchased their travel insurance through AAA.
We strongly encourage you to speak with a travel insurance agent to discuss your specific coverage needs, and to clear up any questions you may have relative to travel insurance coverage, including questions about COVID-19. Please make sure you purchase a plan that includes coverage for COVID-19 related trip cancellations and trip interruptions.
