Each of our instructors will help, adjust and individually give instructions as much as the group session allows however if you would prefer you can also book private sessions with them which will allow for much more individualized attention.
An other option would be to join one of the retreats in our calendar that are focused on what you are looking for.

Hello! It´s actually just a perfect place for solo traveller. I´ve been there solo myself as many others women... You could hardly find a better place to go alone, actually. It´s just ideal, especially if you feel, like you mentioned. You do not meet couples, if not at all, then only very few. That´s something you can be totally sure about! Enjoy your traveling and have a nice day! K.
