Don’t feel pressured in doing so – this is your holiday and you decide where to take part and where not. We have learned over the years that every guest has a different schedule/goals/reasons to come to our retreats as such we always offer a wide selection of classes and courses. If you do like to knock yourself out in all of them then you are of course welcome to do so as well!
