About this trip

The summer solstice is a sacred point on the calendar being the longest day of the year. The sun lingers at its zenith, nurturing our inner light, radiance and power. 


After winter darkness and the seeding of spring, the summer solstice is a time when all things expand and grow towards their fullest potential.


Celebrate this potent time of year with Yoga me BLAC on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico.


To enhance and cultivate our own creative, life-affirming energies, we will greet each morning sun with a relaxing Kemetic meditation


 We’ll close the afternoon in the deep golden glow of the rising sun with an invigorating Kemetic yoga practice.


Before the sun sets we will close each evening with a restorative practice.


In between; play in the ocean, bask in the sun, take advantage of various excursions for surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding, snorkeling, and cultural tours, or treat yourself to a massage or other spa treatment.


Let's get mentally elevated to Be Liberated And Conscious; this 3 day retreat is full of immersive, soulful yoga practices to help you reclaim your identify

Why join our retreat?

We are blessed to host the retreat during the time of the Summer Solstice, a powerful time to be in nature and to work with intentions and prayer. We will begin our time together with a joyful practice and ceremony honoring this longest day of the year where we will dive deep into breathing, movement and stillness. 


We will also have a Juneteenth celebration to celebrate our mental and physical freedom


Each day will include meditation, conscious breathing and intention setting; plant-based breakfast, morning yoga flows and an opportunity to explore the beautiful city of San Juan.

Cancellation/Refund policy

 

Thank you for being a part of our community! Please carefully read our refund policy – it applies to every one, every time.

In case of Covid complications- i.e closed borders, or if the retreat has to be delayed (due to Covid) you will be given the option to: 

A) Join the retreat at the new proposed date. 

B) Receive a refund of your payments  (excluding the non-refundable $150USD deposit). 


Your Deposit

Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferrable. Please consider your circumstances, such as job stability,  etc, before placing your deposit for one of our programs. It is your responsibility to ensure you can attend the program before placing your deposit.


Remainder Payment

In all cases, full payment must be received no later than 45 days before the start date to hold your spot. In the month leading up to the final payment date, you will receive reminders to complete your payment. If we do not receive your payment on time, your spot will be made available to those on the waitlist and you will forfeit your deposit. There are no refunds or transfers of payments after the above deadline due to the fact that we are required to make venue payments that are no longer refundable after this time.

It is your responsibility to read and understand our cancellation policy before making a reservation. Naturally, no one books with the intention of canceling or postponing their training, but unexpected things do happen that can be beyond your control. We strongly recommend that you purchase travel cancellation insurance to cover any possible loss. Depending on the policy and conditions, travel cancellation insurance will pay for some or all cancellation fees. With most agencies, insurance must be purchased within 14 days of making your reservation.


Cancellation Policy

If you have to cancel your reservation, please inform us as soon as possible.  If you cancel your reservation altogether up to 60 days prior to the start date of your retreat or training, you will forfeit your deposit. The remaining balance may be used as credit for another event within two years of the date of your confirmed cancellation. For last minute cancellations (less than 60 days prior to start date of your retreat) any fees paid will be non-refundable and non-transferable.

Due to non-recoverable payments that we must make in advance to secure the retreat venues, exceptions to our policy cannot be made for any reason, including but not limited to natural disasters, inclement weather, acts of terrorism, illness, health conditions, medical or personal or family or work emergencies, or change of mind. If you cannot reach the training due to unforeseen circumstances such as strikes, weather circumstances, and missed, delayed or canceled flights, training fees are unfortunately non-refundable and non-transferable. We strongly recommend purchasing travel cancellation insurance.


We reserve the right to remove a participant from the program if their behavior is disruptive. Incomplete or inaccurate information on the application may result in dismissal from the program. In the event of dismissal, any refunds of fees will be at the sole discretion of Yoga me BLAC. No refunds will be made for travel, meal or accommodation packages booked.
