Brexit and how it affects your travel

2018 - for those of you already registered for summer 2018 and beyond please  be aware that the venue may increase their costs to us for next season due to exchange rate changes and if this happens we will, sadly, have to pass the increase on to you. We would expect the increases to be minimal.

Some prices have risen due to exchange rates - sorry!

Updates - flight delays

My flight has been delayed. Can I get compensation?

Check the Citizens advice website for detailed information by following this link

Airlines don't have to pay out for delays caused by snow because weather is classified as an "extraordinary circumstance" – though some airlines may issue a refund at their discretion. For those of you flying to India you are almost certainly on a non EU airline so contact them direct to see exactly what you are entitled to.

According to Which magazine you can challenge your airline if you don't agree there were extraordinary circumstances – for example, if you are told you can't fly due to the snow, but other flights are departing. "Airlines may stretch the definition of extraordinary circumstances further than they should."

Which Magazine  states:-

If the delay is not caused by extraordinary circumstances you will be entitled to compensation under EU rules, but only if you are flying with an airline based in the EU or with a non-EU-based airline flying from an EU airport, and only if the delay is for two hours or more. If you are flying somewhere else or with a non-EU-based airline not flying from the EU you'll have to check that carrier's terms and conditions.

If you are delayed for two hours or more you are entitled to: two free phone calls, faxes or e-mails; free food and drinks; and free hotel accommodation if you need to stay overnight.

If your flight arrives at its destination three hours or more late you will receive compensation of between €250 and €600, depending on how far your flight takes you. So you'll get €250 if your three hour-delayed flight travels 1,500km or less (ie, London to Amsterdam), but €600 if your plane is delayed by four hours or more and travels at least 3,500km (ie, London to Sydney).

My flight has been cancelled. Will I get my money back?

If your flight is cancelled you should be offered either a refund or an alternative flight to your original destination.

For compensation you will have to look to the EU rules again, though if the delay is caused by snow – and thus an extraordinary circumstance – you might not get anything. If you are covered by EU regulations you will be entitled to travel assistance (such as help with rebooking for a later date) as well as meals and accommodation etc. Check the official EU website for more on your rights.

    Yoga Teacher Training to take you from 200 hours to 500 hours

The Ibiza yoga shala; Yoga Alliance 500-hour Teacher Training Course is an intensive, residential course led by Jacqueline Purnell BWY FCT, E-RYT 500 Yoga Alliance Teacher.

Our advanced training programme delivers 300-hours of higher level yoga training.

These hours are added to your existing 200-hour certification, and allow you to become registered with Yoga Alliance at as a RYT-500. Yogashala Ibiza runs Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher Training Programmes in the beautiful natural setting of The Garden of Joy on the coast of the White Isle. Our course is a practical teacher training designed to deepen your own practice, hone your skills as a Yoga teacher and dive deeper in the yoga tradition

Price includes shared accommodation, all tuition, diploma and a light brunch of Muesli and fruit and Dinner at the Garden of Joy every day except your two free days and arrival and departure days.

The light brunch and Dinner are prepared using the finest available ingredients, including home-grown organic produce.

Accommodation is off-site in twin rooms with catering facilities and is perfectly situated 10-15 minutes walk from our centre with a local supermarket, a beach, shops and cafes close by.

The course takes place at the newly opened, eco-friendly yoga centre, "The Garden of Joy" in Ibiza, which has a solid commitment to sustainable energy & preserving the environment in the most natural ways possible.

The centre has a lovely pool with stunning views of the bay. Meals are prepared using the finest available home-grown organic vegetables.

Brunch and dinner will be provided daily except on the two free days.

The accommodation is on a shared basis. Two people in a one bedroom, twin bedded apartment with catering facilities. These are 10 - 15 minutes walk away from the centre, near Cala Llonga Beach. There is a local supermarket nearby.

The Eco-friendly Yoga Centre "Garden of Joy" is situated in sweet aromatic pine forests five minutes from a pebble beach and ten minutes walk from a shallow sandy bay.

Our Centre is rustic and it overlooks "Magic Mountain" and the Sea. As there is very little light pollution our stars twinkle very brightly.

We commute by bus and by small ferry boats around the beautiful island of Ibiza.

You can also windsurf, hike and ride horses.

Water conservation and recycling techniques are of great importance to us: All of our water at the centre is provided from our well and rain water is collected and re-used for the garden surrounding the Yoga Space and the organic vegetable area irrigation systems. We are also studying local desalination techniques to enhance our systems.

We encourage our students to use public transport, we are blessed with buses from the nearby beach and small ferry boats with regular sailing's around the island. We are looking to invest in new alternative energy sources for the future.  We use sea weed to fertilise our soil as an application of permaculture techniques that we are learning.

We very much want to support our local farmers and support their traditional lifestyle. The mountainous interior of the island is a quilt of dense pine forest, olive and almond groves. Farmers still use ancient terracing to cultivate their crops and irrigation techniques introduced by the Arabs over a thousand years ago. The Ibecenco people living in these rural areas are an extremely dignified people- their lives edging gently forwards in a time honoured fashion with so many treasured techniques to share.

We have been forging relationships with the local farmers who have been farming the land generation after generation and who still farm by hand. We hope to form an ecological community with our neighbours. We are committed to renovation and maintenance of our centre with recuperated materials sourced locally. Self sustainability is key: from the use of energy saving bulbs to our hand-made manufacture of candles using natural materials such as beeswax and essential oils.

We also provide local knowledge to help students find their way around on their two days off.
