You will be staying at Hotel Tecina, which expresses in its architectural forms the mysteries and enigmas of the Canary Islands and invites guests to enjoy themselves in a breathtaking setting where they are able to admire the unsurpassable view of the Atlantic Ocean and the islands of Tenerife with the Teide Pick volcano in the background.

The rooms are spacious and bright furnished with Castillan style furniture. The Isabelline style living rooms are not to be missed. However, a very personal touch of island life is not disregarded, as there are constant maritime references in the decoration of the rooms.

Program

Sunday is arrival day, where you will be served a light dinner at 19.00.

The yoga detox retreat program will officially start on Monday morning at 07.45.

You will be on a liquid only 'diet' from Monday through to after the yoga class on the Saturday morning, which means 5 whole days of juice-fasting detoxification.

On Saturday, you will be served a light breakfast, lunch and dinner, still with juices, to slowly introduce foods back into the body, but still ensuring that your diet is an alkaline one.

You will have another healthy breakfast on Sunday morning, after which the program will come to a close and you will be sure to feel amazing!

Various instructional talks and discussions will be slotted in over the course of the program

    "I just spent the most amazing week practicing yoga with Ananda in La Gomera. I didn't know anything about La Gomera before and booked the trip through yoga retreats as I needed a good week of rest and exercising. I didn't have any expectations as I booked it last minute due to my crazy schedule and was I positively surprised. First of all, the landscape of La Gomera and the beautiful locations and gardens of Jardin Tecina hotel are absolutely amazing - Pinterest perfect. Having said that, the trip would not have had the same positive effect if it wouldn't be for Ananda - my yoga teacher. This was one of the most personalized retreats and treatments I ever had. Although the week was intense, I came out of it relaxed and with a different perspective. We practiced Kundalini yoga with sunrise at 7:30am in the most picturesque location close to the sea breathing in the purest prana and Yin Yoga with sun set at around 5:30 in the most beautiful surroundings. Not to mention the daily Japanese massage that completed the detox and yoga sessions. Ananda has been great throughout. She customized the program to my needs and state of health. This was one of the most personalized experiences where Ananda spent a lot of time. Her energy massage also worked miracles. Well, after one week I can certainly say that I feel more energised, inspired and I have a positive state of mind. This is truly priceless. I would highly recommend this yoga retreat to anybody who is looking for an all round treatment and relaxation."

    "Thank you again so very much for the lovely time we spent together on this amazing island of La Gomera. My experience was totally different from what I expected - it was much better. As I was the only one in the programme for this particular week, I received special treatment. The apartment where I stayed was nice and clean and close to Ananda's house where the yoga sessions took place. We were a tiny group and therefore the classes were very individual and catered to our needs and abilities. The food was very fresh, healthy and tasty vegetarian, home cooked by Ananda and served with lots of explanations and love. Overall I had a great experience and I can highly recommend the individual treatment given by Ananda. I am planning to go back to La Gomera as I was stunned by the beauty of this island."

    "As a seasoned yoga practitioner, but a novice to fasting, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this retreat. All I can say is that I would absolutely do it again, no questions asked! Ananda is a very calming presence. She takes her time, explains things carefully and follows up with PDFs for you to read/keep. The yoga classes were constantly adapted to my needs and energy levels which was a blessing. As for the massage treatments, I haven’t felt that well for a long time :), the setting, La Gomera is a treat and I would go back."

    "La Gomera is a beautiful and unique Island - you find a lot of nature with beautiful mountains and idyllic beaches and places at the sea, and a lot of the people you meet are warmhearted and inspiring. I loved this place: very authentic and peaceful with a wonderful energy. The retreat with Ananda and Volker is like a small oasis of peace and calm. I enjoyed the time with them and to talk to and laugh with them. I am grateful for their good energy and their experiences they shared with me. The food from Ananda ist delicious - very authentic Indian, Thai or La Gomerian meals made with love and care. The yoga lessons and meditation sessions with Volker are very peaceful and helpful. A good mix of challenge and relaxation, but always with calmness and a lovely sense of humor."

    "It was a really great experience! A fantastic combination of detox, yoga, massage, inspiring talks, walks, and sun and water, based on which you feel deeply re-energized and newborn! It was a great experience that, due to the highly individual coaching by Ananda and the personal atmosphere, inspired me sustainably to keep the detox lifestyle in my life."

    "Overall, it was a really great experience! Thanks for the awakening! It was a fantastic combination of detox, yoga, massage and also talks, which I really appreciated. Furthermore, the tour through the island was amazing! Thanks for showing the great and hidden spots, the exciting tours on old roads, and all the explanations on this fantastic island. I really feel like being newborn, and try to keep that in my life. I am now working on my food program, am doing yoga each day twice, and will try to go more into meditation."

    "Coming for a detox retreat in La Gomera leaves you energetic. The tensions accumulated in the body are removed, and the combination of fasting, massage, sunrise and sunset exercising, and yoga leave you regenerated. The effects of age are erased and altogether you start to feel again the sensations of your young age. On the fasting, I would say it was very well managed and balanced. The combination of massage and sun eases the process. Of course, the salt drinking was not a very pleasant moment, but the cleaning went fine, within two hours. Fasting was at times a pleasant sensation, especially in the morning and during the day. The evenings were generally more difficult. I found the juice drinking process very nice and balanced. In addition, it really tastes nice. In the end, you feel very positive and keen to make positive projections. I enjoyed the exercise taking in sunset and sunrise, carried out in such inspiring locations. I would recommend keeping this. Together with the walking, it is a very good combination. Thank you very much for your nice welcome, human spirit, and positive philosophy. This is as important as the course itself. Big hugs."
