Comfortable and Breathable Clothing – You’ll want to pack clothing that is both comfortable and breathable. Choose loose fabrics that are breathable and moisture-wicking so you can move freely and stay cool during practice. If you plan to take advantage of the beach or other outdoor activities, you should also consider the effects of the sun and weather. We recommend checking the forecast before takeoff, but you will do well to remember to bring a hat, sunglasses, and comfortable shoes.

Yoga Mat and Props – The yoga mat is an essential piece of equipment for your yoga practice, so it is important to pack it along with any props you may need, including blocks, straps, blankets, and other items you may need during your practice. In the event that you do not have a yoga mat, our on site concierge may help you to rent or to purchase one near by.

Sun Care and Insect Repellent – There is no doubt that Puerto Rico is known for its tropical climate and its beautiful beaches, but it is also important to protect your skin from the sun and insects while you are here. Keep yourself protected by packing a good-quality sunscreen and insect repellant as part of your travel gear.

FIrst Aid KIt – A basic first aid kit is always a good idea to pack, especially if you’re going to be engaging in physical activities such as hiking or camping. Band-aids, antiseptic wipes, pain relievers, and any other medication that you may need should be included in your kit.

Meditation Journals – An excellent way to reflect on your yoga retreat experience is to  journal We recommend that you pack a journal as well as a few pens so that you can write down your thoughts, feelings, and insights as you progress through your retreat.
