At the moment times are a bit uncertain if we are able to travel or if we would even want to be in a big group of people. Therefore at The Yogi Life For Me, we’ve been looking at some great retreats that offer you a full refund after cancellation!

It’s not just that traveling is a bit tricky at the moment, things might happen to you personally. And we all know how expensive a full-on travel insurance cost. Let’s have a look at some great American retreats that you can easily cancel.

Yoga Retreats with Full Refund USA

Yoga Retreat in Texas

Belle Oaks Inn (Prices start from US$ 400)
June and July

This retreat is a great one if you’d like to escape for the weekend. In June and July, they are offering every other weekend a 3-day retreat.

The program itself will be quite full. But of course, it will all be with enriching and relaxing activities. You’ll be meditating, doing yoga and even a cooking class will be offered.

The accommodation itself is absolutely stunning. If you’ve ever dreamed of sleeping in a piece of history then there’s nothing better than to sleep in an old colonial house. Of course, it had a couple of updates like AC to keep you fresh during the hot Texan summer days.

And during the free time you have, you can always choose to get a tan at the pool or have a swim in it. The pool itself has also been designed in such a way that it really fits with this place.

If you decide last-minute not to participate at this retreat, you have up until 24 hours before the retreat starts to cancel completely free. You will get your money back up until the last penny.

Well, the only money you might not see back is the transfer costs on your credit card, but in general, they aren’t that high. At least those costs will be a lot cheaper than getting travel insurance.
