Our yoga studio is accessible to people in a wheelchair if you or one of your guests would like to experience our kundalini yoga practices, sound healing or any workshops of interest that we would run at the retreat this might be possible. Please contact us before booking to discuss your mobility needs and we will let you know as where to meet to access the studio from our parking bay.

Unfortunately the eco-villas are not accessible via wheelchair as there are 3 small steps leading up to the front deck of each accommodation. Guests with lower mobility requiring walking assists will find there is space to move freely and all the internal spaces are on the one level.
