There is a sample day by day itinerary below. Some timing changes may take place as bookings are finalised. Whilst the food will be vegetarian and you could treat the time as a “detox” from meat, bacon, alcohol and coffee, you are also fine to go into town and find those things if you wish, without judgement. The yoga classes will be beginner friendly.
