Retreat location

BJW School Center Villa is located in the village of Villaverde, La Oliva. The retreat is only ten minutes drive from the beach (Cotillo and Corralejo) in the beautiful and typically Canarian village of Villaverde. With amazing volcanic scenery and incredible vistas of the ocean and Lanzarote Island, this is the perfect respite from the busy day to day. With numerous volcanoes and serene, open spaces, Fuerteventura leaves you with unforgettable and calm feelings. Still, you can easily say that the island's biggest treasures lay next to the ocean – the countless, empty sand beaches.

Located just outside of the village of Villaverde, famous for its traditional windmills and fantastic views across the countryside, and towards the islands of Los Lobos and Lanzarote, Durga Yoga provides a quiet and perfect place to enjoy your yoga teacher training in Fuerteventura.

Fuerteventura has been able to avoid the mass tourism, which has plagued some of the other islands. It is a paradise for a relaxing holiday; a place where you can truly tune out of the modern-day time and tune into waves, sun, wind, clouds, and stars. The north part of the island is the best place for waves and BJW School Center, sits in the small town of Villaverde, ideally positioned on the crossroads to all the great beaches and surf spots.

In 2009, UNESCO described the entire island of Fuerteventura as a Biosphere Reserve, due to the important value of the ecosystems that inhabit it, both terrestrial and marine. Montana de Tindaya is 10 minutes' drive and Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria can be reached with a 10-minute drive. Guests can get to Villaverde city center in 10 minutes' walking.

With 3,000 hours of sunshine per year and an average temperature of 22ºC, Fuerteventura offers an ideal climate to enjoy the characteristic environment at any time of the year. More than 150 kilometers of coastline offer beaches for everybody; perfect for water sports, immense beaches of golden sand, and crystal waters such as the Dunes of Corralejo, black sand beaches accompanied by large cliffs, nudist beaches, or just beaches for a pleasant walk.
