General information for your participation in the event in the Isha Judd Center Uruguay
Congratulations on giving yourself this special gift of growth and self love!
We want to share with you that in the face of this huge challenge derived from the coronavirus pandemic, we have prepared ourselves to develop prevention protocols and constant monitoring of changes in government policies to continue improving what has already been implemented.
Our idea is that we can live a unique retreat, enjoying the entire process that we always carry out in the center; group activities with Isha, sharing together, enjoying nature, but at the same time taking care of each other and making it the best vacation and the most wonderful time of inner transformation that we could ever have.
The growth process is really incredible, very deep and at the same time very entertaining and dynamic, but there are also important things that you have to consider, in terms of your journey and coexistence. Here is everything you need for your stay and if you need further assistance or have any other doubt, count on us to explain it all in detail:
Something Important to remember:
1. Check in is from 3 pm and until 10 pm and check out is at 12 pm.
2. It is MANDATORY that you have full medical insurance coverage for the entire duration of the program. When you arrive in the center, you will need to bring a paper copy of the policy you have purchased so that we can help you at any point if required.
3. Please be advised that all of the available rooms for this event are shared with other people.
4. To get the most out of your unifying (the intensive practice of the system), we recommend that you bring a pillow or cushion for your head, a top and bottom sheet for a mattress, and a blanket to cover yourself. As well, you should bring a yoga mat, athletic shoes for use in the outdoor spaces of the Center as well as during exercise, and mosquito repellant. For access to the pool and pool deck, make sure you bring a bathing suit and sun protection. (Note: Use of the pool and its surrounding space is conditional upon local health regulations, which are subject to change).
5.Regarding health and coexistence:The Isha Judd Center is a house of consciousness where group activities are carried out, therefore we must observe careful safety and hygiene standards, which is why we reserve the right of admission and we do not allow the access or stay in this center to people with infectious-contagious diseases, such as: Pediculosis (lice, nits), Scabies (scabies), Tuberculosis, Hepatitis A, Parotiditis (mumps), Varicella, Measles.
Important: Read the following protocol carefully, it is attached to the terms and conditions at the end of the form.
6. If you are undergoing psychiatric or psychological treatment, the written authorization of your doctor or therapist is essential to participate in the event, indicating the clinical diagnosis, if you take any medication and if he indicates something special for your retreat at the Isha Center Uruguay.
7. The consumption of alcoholic beverages or drugs inside the Center or during the time within the program is prohibited, therefore, the access to the premises under its effects is not allowed. Here we request for absolute responsibility, because you come to carry out a total process of internal transformation. In the case of suspected substance use, a urine test will be performed to rule out any doubts. Regarding the consumption of cigarettes, smoking is prohibited in the interior areas (it is possible in specific areas).
Failure to comply with any of these points 2, 5, 6 and 7 will cancel the right to continue in the event, without this representing any type of financial responsibility on the part of the Center. In the same way, the center reserves the right to end the program to the participants who violate the basic rules of coexistence.
8. In the effects of detoxifying your body and preventing your digestion to be heavy or slow so that you can practice deeply, we have a special diet for the retreat. The idea is that you follow this diet to take advantage of the introspection process, but in case you want to incorporate something additional the center offers some special services at an additional cost such as detox juices, kefir, chía pudding, protein shakes, etc. Special meals are only prepared in case you have a medical indication and always with the food at the center’s reach.
IMPORTANT: it is not possible to cook or store prepared food in the rooms.
IMPORTANT: it is not allowed to wash clothes in the bathrooms or rooms of our facilities. If you need to wash clothes, it has an additional cost.
IMPORTANT: we will be going out to do activities in nature and to enjoy the beautiful beach that we have in front of us. We will go out at scheduled times for that, as well as physical activity. If you like, you can bring a bathing suit, sunscreen and beach items, because it is summer time in Uruguay.
