You are invited to let go and remember who you really are during this holiday retreat in Gran Canaria. The Canary Islands are often referred to as the "Hawaii of Europe".
Sunshine and summer weather all year round, according to a study by an American university the best climate in the world. Just a few kilometers from the beach and the big sand dune start mountains, valleys, caves, streams, and volcanoes. Nature pure! Exotic plants, trees, flowers, and wild herbs are constantly blooming in all colors. And not to forget the culture. The colonial capital Las Palmas is a paradise for those interested in history, architecture, theater, art, and museums.
The aim of the retreat is to get in touch with your inner self again through yoga sessions, meditation and relaxing walks on the beach and in the mountains. Return to the feeling of being centered and grounded.
The center is the place to back to when life's challenges push you off balance - a place where you can keep calm and happy. Away from your daily commitments and routine, you will find back to inner harmony. True happiness comes from the inside!

Bungalows accommodate 1 to 3 people (according to your booking) and have a fully equipped kitchen, TV, Aircon, a living room with sofa-bed and a terrace.

From Monday to Friday, you will practice Vinyasa or Aerial Yoga in the morning and Yin Yoga in the evening. All classes include pranayama (breathing exercises) and meditation. Patanjali a la carte.
At the breakfast brunch after yoga, we sit together on the rooftop terrace and we will recommend to you what things to do during your stay in Gran Canaria. Our yoga teachers live on the island all year round and they will give you all the information you need to make your stay unforgettable. Beach, massages, hiking or maybe do nothing at all, here you will have time to focus on yourself and to do the things you want to do.
In the yoga group, you will find like-minded people if you feel like having company. As much privacy or company as you wish. In the evening we come together for another more calming session of yoga and meditation. Afterwards, the group prepares for dinner.
