Is this retreat for students or teachers?
The retreat is for everyone! New students, long time practitioners and teachers are all welcome.
What if I have special dietary needs?
We will conduct a participant survey to help address vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free diets. Any other special needs can be addressed.
Are we required to stay at the host hotel?
NO! This year we are offering a "Commuter Option" for up to 50 attendees, on a first-come, first-serve basis. This package will include all events, classes, and meals provided in the Hotel Guest Options. Stay with a local-Austin friend or at another hotel, but think twice. This venue is spectacular and worth the stay!
I have a roommate, how do I designate with whom I want to share a room?
If you have a roommate preference, all parties need to register under Double Occupancy or Triple Occupancy. After payment, registration will be completed through a post-payment survey which will give you the opportunity to list roommate preferences..
If you would like the Double Occupancy or Triple Occupancy rate and don't have a roommate preference, register for Double Occupancy or Triple Occupancy. Then email survey you receive after purchase will guide your response.
Is the Advanced class included in the retreat registration fee?
I am a teacher, will there be an opportunity to get recertified?
YES! Please pay for this additional retreat option when you register. Contact Bikram Headquarters.
What airport do I fly into?
The hotel is closest to Austin-Bergstrom Airport (AUS).
Is there a shuttle from the airport? What other methods of transportation are available?
Yes. The Resort shuttle costs $30 each way and can be arranged by calling the Resort in advance. Taxis cost about $55, so ride-sharing is encouraged. Rental cars are very convenient at Austin-Bergstrom airport (within walking distance of baggage claim - no airport rental car shuttle is needed). Rental car sharing is a great way to explore Austin, and Resort self-parking is free.
