PRACTICAL CONSIDERATIONS

Cushions will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own for added comfort. The floor will be clean and smooth. Chairs will be available for those who need them.

Drinking water will be provided at the Gayatri Mandir (bring your own personal water bottles to refill).

Mosquito Repellent: The Gayatri Mandir is open air in the olive groves. Please bring whatever mosquito repellent that best suits your needs.

This is a non-secured area so please do not bring valuables to the Mandir.

Please note: There will be no refund if sessions have to be cancelled due to rain. The beauty of the Gayatri Mandir is that it is an outdoor temple, so we are close to the elements and the beauty of Mother Nature. Unfortunately we have not yet found a mantra that can control the weather! Please don’t worry though – Corfu in July and August is almost always dry, sunny and most beautiful.

CHILDREN

Let us know on your booking form (July or August) that you will be bringing your child/children to the Gayatri Festival so we can send you the latest details.
