"Perfect trip for a mind, body, soul recharge!"

This is the best trip for anyone who needs a recharge after quarantine/lockdown. A week long trip of moving my body and improving my yoga skills with a variety of classes. A mind reset from deep meditations and hanging out by the pool relaxing all day. And a soul healed by welcoming hosts, nature, and the sunshine of Gran Canarias. Have recommended this retreat to all my friends!

"A yoga retreat and study abroad experience in one!"

I've been practicing yoga for 8+ years, primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area. I came on this retreat to re-initiate my yoga practice after a year of neglecting it during the pandemic.

This was my first time in Gran Canaria - let alone Spain - and I was blown away by the incredible experience that the hosts (Vicky and José) designed. Not only was each day filled with yoga and meditation, but we also explored different parts of the island - from the Las Palmas Old Town, to the beaches, to local markets. I also loved the nature walks that José led us through, pointing out the local flora and explaining the history and uses behind various plants. I felt like I walked away from this retreat not only recharged, but also like I fully experienced the island as a tourist.

Vicky and José are truly gems of human beings, and they made me and the 4 other guests feel like we were part of a family -- with our daily meals together and our many hilarious Spanglish conversations. I didn't expect to improve my Spanish speaking abilities during the retreat, but Vicky, José, and the other Spanish-speaking guests were so kind in teaching me new phrases and translating the conversations for me. Vicky used to be a language teacher, so her encouragement and skill in helping me learn Spanish made the retreat even more worth it.

This retreat felt like a study abroad experience intertwined with health and fitness retreat -- I highly recommend it for solo adults, students, and families alike.

"Love, Love, peace, peace"

Vicky and Jose welcomed me into their beautiful home and I spent peaceful, loving days there.

Vicky's yoga classes were pitched carefully at the level of the three participants, and were varied and fun; including yoga on the beach, yoga nidra and yoga dance. There was a focus on different parts of the body as the days went on, helping me feel fully restored by the time I left.

The hike in the forest with Jose was a real highlight. Already a beautiful and spiritual experience, his knowledge of the local natural history also helped to make this day educational.

The food was amazing. Everything that came out of the kitchen was delicious!

Thank you both for a really wonderful time.

"A highly recommended retreat to re-energize yourself!"

I completely LOVED the 5-day retreat I spent at La Tejana and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to rest, re-energize, and practice yoga in a wonderful and charming place in the middle of Gran Canaria beautiful nature.

The hosts: Vicky & José are great hosts and truly wonderful human beings. You are very well taken care of in the context of the retreat's offered services and supported if needed. For the latter I have a specific example related to my PCR test that I needed to do on the last 2 days in order to go back to Switzerland. Vicky & José helped me in contacting the right place and getting the results in due time as it was not easy being on national easter holidays.

The place: I think the photos dont do it justice as the place is even more lovely, spacious and surrounded by a wonderful nature where nice walks are possible. There is a nice pool, vegetable garden, sitting area, hammacs... where you can rest.

The program: I personally loved the fact of having two yoga classes per day. I also loved the activities that were offered during the day (walks in nature with José where we learned a lot of things, Teror, Las Palmas).

The courses: I had the chance with this retreat to discover different types of yoga, learning better how to connect with my respiration and discovering meditation. Vicky is a great yoga teacher and coach.

The food: healthy, varied, rich and tasty

Vicky & José made me feel very welcomed and at home. Thank you again very much to both of you :)

"Awesome retreat"

The mix of Yoga and Meditation with Vicky and Expeditions with José is really great. And you also have time for yourself. Vicky is a great teacher, each lesson is unique and you always feel really good afterwards. José showed us beautiful parts of the area and he told us really interesting things about the island and all the meals José cooked were just amazing! They are great hosts who really take care of everyone (also making an appointment for the COVID test). A really lovely retreat, I highly recommend it!

"A Lovely place with Lovely Hosts"

6 days in a beautiful house surrounded by love and nature.

Everyday I felt welcomed, safe and comfortable.

Vicky & Jose and Noa (the dog) and Fiona (the cat) were the most hospitable people I have ever known.

The Yoga sessions with Vicky were amazing, one morning session and one evening, each day like a new experience. I loved the yoga dance and Nidra Yoga which was a first time for me!

The meals well prepared by Chef Jose, so delicious!!

Again many thanks Vicky & Jose, you made this Retreat experience memorable! :)

I recommend and will definitely come back!

Thanks Vicky and Jose for opening your home to us. I had a great retreat experience. Well balanced yoga and daily activities. Vicky is a good yoga teacher guiding you into poses and relaxation. Jose's culinary skills and local walking activity are not to be missed. We were a small group and the community spirit was really good. Vicky's and Jose's fun and humour really helped everyone get along well.

"Amazing Experience"

I had an amazing week at La Tejana! This was my first "solo" vacation in many years and I´m very happy I went.

The hosts Vicky and Jose are so nice and welcoming that you feel like you´ve been accepted to the family instantly! I really liked the house and the area of the retreat. There are lots of places to see around and the hosts make sure you learn a bit about the area. Daily activities really help to discover the island and bond with the rest of the group.

Yoga classes were exactly what I was looking for - a good balance of stretching, breathing and muscle work. Vicky does know how to make sessions interesting even if the group has very different levels and experience of practice.

Also I really enjoyed Nidra Yoga, Yoga Dance and Restoration Yoga session. All were very new to me!

Thank you so much Vicky and Jose! I had one of the greatest holidays of my life!

"An absolutely wonderful experience "

From the very beginning up to end of the Retreat, it was just a lovely experience.

Vicky and Jose made us feel very welcome and we felt immediately at home.

Beautiful garden, home grown food, excellent yoga classes, amazing food and hospitality.

There was plenty of lovely trips, visits to the beach and stunning nature walks.

We had quite simply the best time ever and I am intending to go back.

"A very hospitable experience"

Jose & Vicky are the most hospitable persons I have ever met. They sincerely try to make every guest feel at home. The retreat is the perfect combination of yoga, nature, fun activities and great food! I would recommend this retreat to everyone who is longing for a reviving break.

"The first but not the last."

First time yoga-ist here. Also my first time staying in the north of the island.

Vicky was very kind and is an excellent teacher of yoga. I loved the yoga sessions (nice balance between formal sessions, leisure time and private time) and will continue to 'do yoga'.

House is great and location is perfect. Personally, I think the pictures do not do it justice. The yoga studio is a very comfortable place to be.

Jose is a good cook and also a kind soul. The leisure events are worthwhile and fit in the yoga sessions.

As a team, Vicky and Jose make my stay something to remember.

I will be returning in the future.

"A place of paradise. "

If you are looking for a strict yoga and detoxing retreat then this is probably not the right place for you, however if you need a break from your everyday life, a chance to meet honest and truly amazing people with yoga classes and some delicious food thrown in for good measure, then I cannot recommend anywhere better than La Tajana.

Vicky and José are the most welcoming of hosts. Vicky can remember the names of every guest that has stayed and shows genuine interest in not only what she and José can offer but what each guest offers in return.

Every day the guests are introduced to beautiful towns and villages as well as nature trails and walks all lead by either Vicky, José or Elena; all of whom are clearly passionate about this wonderful island.

Vicky’s yoga sessions have changed the way I view yoga and meditation. @Vicky Thank you so much for the Yoga Nidra!

José is never without a smile. You can honestly taste the time and care in each meal when you sit as a family to eat. The garden of full of home grown vegetables which are picked and prepared by José along side other very local ingredients such as the neighbours potatoes or the honey from the next field along the hillside. Each meal is made with not only the love of José but the community as a whole.

This is a true place of paradise and never have I felt so at home within a group of strangers.

Thank you Vicky, José and Elena.

"Just wonderful"

I've been putting off this review because I didn't want to admit that it's over! Everything about my stay at La Tejana was absolutely perfect. The location is something you can only truly appreciate in person - spectacular panoramic views of green mountains from both the beautiful house you stay in and the gorgeous pine wood yoga salon. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are something to BEHOLD - Jose will do everything to accommodate and each meal time is a new adventure in taste. Vicky is wonderfully charming, and from collection to goodbyes was the perfect host. Yoga lessons are beautifully therapeutic - and usually twice a day! Despite travelling alone (like all other attendees) every day was full of laughter and adventure. Vicky and Jose really do care about all attendees which I really experienced when I fell ill on my last day and both did all that they could to put me on my feet before boarding a flight back to the UK. La Tejana is really a break from the fast pace of life, is excellent value for money and is more than worth your visit!

Really welcoming atmosphere and fantastic hosts

"Warm and friendly yoga retreat"

The whole atmosphere at La Tejana is of warmth and love. Vicky and José welcome you into their home as if you are old friends come to visit and do some yoga together. We shared meals around one big table like an extended international family which was lovely for me as a lone traveller. José cooked delicious meals and easily catered for a variety of dietary requirements.

Vicky teaches a calm, mindful Hatha yoga that allowed me to really feel and stretch into the poses and she corrected a few bad habits I had got into already. The classes are held in a purpose built studio in the garden with views out across the hillside. Some of the classes were just us guests but other's included Vicky''s regular yogis whome it was delightful to meet .

The trips out were a wonderful mixture of walking in beautiful nature and visiting local museums and villages. These were guided often by Vicky''s sister Elena who shared her love of her home with us.

There was often free time in the afternoon when we could relax in the garden or take a siesta. We could have walked to the village but none of us managed that!

"Family from all over the world! "

I really had an amazing relaxing time filled with activities and of course yoga! Vickey and José we’re like the Spanish mum and dad and we (the 4 ladies on the retreat all of different ages from 23-60!) were like their adopted children from all over the world. Not just a retreat but they really make it feel like your home! Always have activities to do together, but also leaving you time for your self to relax. Vicky really taught me a new perspective of yoga that can all levels will enjoy the same! José makes really delicious Spanish food and really accommodates for all types of eaters. You will really leave feeling like a changed person, with the feeling that you have made friends for life. They share their home, food, gardens, knowledge, villages and all of their island with you. For the best yoga retreat... book at La Tejana!

"Experiencia enriquezedora en un paraíso terrenal"

Fue mi primer retiro de yoga y estuve encantada! La casa de Vicky y José es maravillosa y acogedora, por los paisajes, el jardín, la luz... Los anfitriones transmiten mucha alegría y sencillez. El yoga que enseña Vicky permite realmente ir más hacia adentro, gracias por eso! La comida está excelente también.

" nice place to relax"

Si buscas un sitio para descansar, relajarse, olvidarte del día a día, tener a gente encantadora con energía positiva a tu alrededor, este es el lugar donde deberías venir. Los anfitriones te harán sentir como en tu propia casa, te darán atención y amistad y a su vez respetarán tu privacidad.

Me he enriquecido con los talleres de yoga, cada clase elaborada con mucho detalle, enfocada de otra manera, customizada para trabajar distintas áreas, profundizan la consciencia. Me encantó la sesión de yoga nidra.

Vicky es muy buena profesora, se le da con facilidad la enseñanza, explica muy bien. Transmite mucha motivación para la práctica.

 A José, le quiero dar las gracias por la comida muy rica, las sesiones de risoterapia ;)  por el humor y por contarnos las historias de las que me estoy riendo hasta ahora;)

Las excursiones que hace son muy interesantes,te explica muy bien la historia del lugar, el origen, las plantas, etc. Imposible aburrirse, solo a disfrutar.

En resumen, me llevo mucha energía positiva y una inmejorable experiencia. Aunque he estado en el pasado en distintos retiros, de este me llevo algo extra en particular, que es la amabilidad y el trabajo que Vicky y José han puesto con tanto detalle y cariño.

"Foncez !! "

Ne ratez pas cette chance de passer une semaine avec Vicky et José.

Leur maison est située dans un endroit qui instantanément relaxe et rempli d'énergie. Vicky et José m'ont fait me sentir à l'aise des le début. La nourriture préparée par José est très bonne, il a même préparé spécialement un plat que j'aimais suite à une discussion. Les cours de Vicky sont variés et très enrichissants. J'ai découvert de nouvelles choses et ai pu approfondir ma pratique. Le studio de yoga est ouvert sur la nature ce qui rend les cours encore plus agréables. Les balades proposées par José sont régénératrices et il nous apprend plein de choses sur la région et la magnifique nature environnante. Le programme est très bien pensé et est un parfait équilibre entre activités et temps pour soi avec le yoga comme fil conducteur matin et soir. Vicky et José apportent beaucoup d'attention au moindre détail pour que tout se passe au mieux. Un tout grand merci, vous avez placé la barre très haut pour ma première retraite de yoga!!

"Erwartungen vollkommen übertroffen!"

Der Urlaub war für mich eine unvergessliche Erfahrung! Eine Erfahrung für mich selbst, zur Ruhe zu kommen und einfach mal ich selbst sein zu können. Ich konnte dem mir sonst zu strikt getakteten Alltag entfliehen und musste mir einfach mal keine Gedanken machen. Ich konnte mich total zurücklehnen und entspannen, einfach mal nichts tun müssen. Direkt von Beginn an fühlte ich mich total willkommen und "zu Hause": Vicky und José haben mich direkt herzlichst empfangen und ich fühlte mich wirklich sehr wohl bei ihnen .Die Zeit verging wie im Fluge! Das Haus inklusive dem wirklich tollen Garten sind einfach zum relaxen gemacht! Es gibt genügen Ecken und Rückzugsmöglichkeiten. Die Yoga-Einheiten entsprachen genau meinen Vorstellungen und die Zeit verging wie im Fluge. Besonders überrascht war ich von dem Essen! Ich habe lange nicht so gut gegessen, wir wurden richtig verwöhnt! Und es wurden zu jeder Zeit alle persönlichen Vorlieben/Einschränkungen berücksichtigt! Ich kann nur für die tolle Erfahrung danken und jedem empfehlen auch eine solche Reise zu machen! La Tejana ist absolut die richtige Wahl wenn man sich nach einem entspannten Urlaub, tolle Jogastunden sehnt, kulinarisch verwöhnt werden möchte und gerne in der Natur ist, abseits des Tourismus. Die Kombination von Ausflug und Entspannung war einfach perfekt!

"Partage et bienveillance"

Très bel accueil dans un cadre magnifique. Vicky, José et Helena sont très chaleureux, accueillants et à l'écoute de leurs clients. Yoga, repos, visites et ballades. Tout pour de belles vacances. Sans oublier les bons repas et la bonne compagnie.

Merci pour ce beau moment

"Vacaciones alternativas gratificantes"

Un 10 por todo en general. Te sientes como en tu casa. Están siempre muy atentos y pendientes para que así sea. Se adaptan a todas las variables. Practicamos un yoga compatible para experimentados y para niveles de principiantes. Todo muy bien organizado. Sin duda repería la experiencia.

"Como en casa"

Trato muy cercano y amable. Desde el minuto uno te sientes como en casa.

El lugar es muy bonito y acogedor. La experiencia lo vale si lo que buscas es un encuentro con la sencillez, la naturaleza y una porción particular y muy especial de la isla.


from Spain, January 2021

Vicky and José are extremely friendly and caring hostesses! The yoga classes by Vicky are a variety of different asanas and nicely explained, held in a beautiful and bright room in a paradise garden.

The fantastic home made food by José is healthy and a lot of fun!

I felt full of energy and refreshed after my stay.

I definitely plan to go back to visit again.

"A refreshing & relaxing break from 2020!"

Everything was perfect! From the not so early yoga sessions to the ones in the evening with the sunset, the labrador waiting for you quietly on the grass in front of the yoga room, the hikes in the nature, the home-grown vegetables, herbs and fruits, the many places in the hosue and garden to get some alone time to read or to just relax, the variety of different learnings from Hatha Yoga to Yoga Nidra to the chakras ect, the love between José and Vicky making them a great team, the beautifully maintained house, the peaceful voice and instructions of Vicky for the yoga sessions. I would really recommend it! Muchas gracias Vicky y José :)

"An absolutely magical experience "

I wasn’t sure what to expect and was a little nervous but I was made so welcome and felt part of the family. The food was delicious, thanks Jose.

The yoga was wonderful and Vicky is a great yoga teacher. Patient and very knowledgeable. We also did yoga dance and yoga Nidra. Both were very lovely.

The accommodation was outstanding. The gardens and patios were beautiful.

I went to this yoga retreat on my own but never felt lonely. We all became a big family and even though we spoke different languages communication was never a problem. Laughter and kindness are the same universally.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone thinking of booking a yoga retreat.

Thanks Vicky and Jose for a wonderful time. Lots of love to you both and of course to Noa and Fiona 🐾 xxx

Great place to relax. Vicky and José took care of everything and were super friendly and funny. It felt like being part of a family

"Great place to chill for a week, yet some things to improve."

The yoga lessons were very good, the studio is beautiful and Vicky is very knowledgeable about Hatha yoga.

Vicky and Jose are great hosts and they make you feel at home. The house is very nice and has many places in the garden to chill and enjoy the sun.

I stayed in the upper room, the only one with a private toilet. Is a great room, fresh and quite.

The food was delicious. Jose has a passionate cook and he made everything out of scratch, used fresh vegetable from the garden, and made a great effort to have vegan options for me. Yet I would have wished...(read below)

The walks and hikes were also nice.

"Fantastic retreat to disconnect!"

Had a great time at La Tejana! Perfect balance- excursions, yoga, relax, excellent food. Thank you Vicky for the yoga, José- gracias a ti, el mejor cocinero, gracias a Elena por las excursiones interesantes. Voy a echar de menos todo.. incluso las naranjas !! I would recommend to everyone, great chance to unwind, disconnect and enjoy in a family environment.

"Super relaxing stay in La Tejana!"

La Tejana was a fantastic place to relax and recharge. The house was beautiful, as were the gardens and the pool. The tourism activities in the mornings were well organised and gave a very varied taste of the island. The food was incredible and we were able to eat outside on sunny days. The yoga classes were varied and suitable for all levels and Vicky was a kind and patient teacher. The overall experience was extremely enjoyable and very relaxing. I would definitely recommend La Tejana to anybody who would like to improve their yoga skills and practice incorporating it into their daily routine. The hosts, Jose and Vicky were very attentive and spent a lot of time with us which created a real family atmosphere in the house. It felt safe and welcoming and we had a fantastic time!

"More than just a conventional yoga retreat "

I really enjoyed my week at La Tejana and, above all, the family atmosfere between hosts and guests. Vicky, José and Elena will take care of you from day 1. It’s undoubtedly a place that doesn’t lack of positive energy. Yoga classes, plenty of food, laughters, Gran Canaria’s culture, and thriving nature are just some of the ingredients that will make you leave La Tejana with a big smile on your face!

Cecilia Fleta

from Germany, April 2019

"Family atmosphere in an exceptional location"

In Vicky's and Jose's house you'll experience a family-like atmosphere (no children around but a cat and a lovely dog who stays outside the house). Rooms are varied from super comfy to one with little privacy and sunlight, cozy beds and a huge shared bathroom with a shower (no bathtub).

The beautiful 180 y/o house is traditional Canarian style and has plenty of garden/courtyard space to hang out outside. The lush landscape is typical of the humid North half of Gran Canaria. This is not the touristic area of the island where the sun shines all year round. It can be very humid and a little cold inside (no heating!), so don't be upset if it rains and be grateful for sunshine instead. Take warm clothes with you (to keep you warm in the house) if you’re planning your stay between October and April.

Vicky, Jose and Elena are the loveliest hosts. You'll find a second family in their home. Jose is also a fantastic cook, so be prepared to take a few extra pounds back home if you're (like me) the kind of person who can't stop eating when the food is delicious. Meals are super healthy and vegetarian options are available.

Some morning yoga sessions are joined by locals which is a great opportunity to meet people from the village. Yoga classes are easy to follow Hatha style, very well suited for beginners. Evening Yoga Nidra sessions will make you sleep like a baby.

"A beautiful place to relax, connect and heal"

Vicky and Jose warmly welcome visitors into their home and create a relaxed, family experience. I think they strike the right balance between arranging classes/activities and allowing free time/personal space. The accomodation was lovely, the setting was gorgeous, the food was excellent and the company was fun! Vicky is a gifted yoga teacher and her lessons profoundly helped me in my healing journey.

"An amazing place to visit"

La Tejana is an amazing place to stay. The house is wonderful, surrounding amongst green tropical nature, birds are singing, quite and peaceful, full of colors. Vicky and Jose make you feel like you are home, very welcoming, very friendly and kind. I really really enjoyed my time there, we had a lot of fun moments and at the same time very relaxed. At this place you don’t push yourself to be relaxed, you just are.

Yoga classes are very nice, Vicky is a very good teacher, really engaged to what she is doing. She cares for your body needs, try to make you feel comfortable, and her remarks are always to the point. I’m so happy that we had a yoga dance class (really fun and amusing time) & yoga nidra (totally relaaaxed).

The week passes really fast, every day you have something new to explore and see around the island. At the end, you have got a taste of how Canary life is, through the local’s eyes.

"Very relaxing start of the new year"

I went to La Tejana one week around Christmas to get a nice start of the new year. When I arrived, my head was full of thoughts and problems of different kind, but when I went home I could hardly remember what had been bothering me. The yoga was very good. Vicky is a professional teacher, still nice and supporting and with a great smile in her face. She was very attentive to our practice and gave us feedback on what we did. The practice was also varied from day to day.

The atmosphere in the house was nice and friendly, the food made by Jose was authentic Canarian and the trips were interesting and made the stay even better. I very much recommend a stay at La if you need a brake from everyday life and to practice yoga some days.

Tunde Longmore

from Spain, January 2019

The lodgings are with Vicky and José in their own house. Everyone eats with them and they really make you feel like one of their personal friends. Vicky speaks excellent English. The food was delicious, including vegetable tempura, a sea-food rice and home´made bread. The lodgings are not luxurious, but spotlessly clean and with many cosy corners both inside and out, to find a sofa or bench and read. They provide lots of interesting yoga books in Spanish and English. Vicky is a calm teacher and the classes seemed to fly by, but they were challenging enough, professional and varied. So were are the other excursions as Saulo is an excellent guide who knows the flora and fauna, and I really enjoyed the hikes, the visits to local villages and the museum of the island's history (which I thought I'd find boring, but it was fascinating). But for me the best was the relaxed atmosphere with yoga twice a day and lots of activities yet plenty of time programmed in to rest and chat with the other guests.We had a lot of good laughs. A perfect de-stress. I wish I could have stayed longer.

Borja García

from Spain, August 2021

Es mi primera vez con el Yoga y no puedo estar más feliz con mi iniciación. Vicky es excelente en todos los aspectos. Te contagia con su calma, su voz y su forma de expresarse. Conoce y explica a la perfección todos los detalles en diversos tipos de Yoga. Es ordenada y mantiene totalmente el control de la sesión. Hace que resulte sencillo y divertido y se toma todo el tiempo del mundo en cada práctica, sin escatimar tiempo ni esfuerzo.

Jose es un anfitrión de primera. Excelente cocinero y compañero de ruta, súper alegre, amable y agradable a cualquier hora del día. Se esfuerza constantemente en que estés agusto. También aporta un montón de información sobre la isla, su entorno y su Historia.

Además, ambos nos transmitieron un montón de conocimientos que cambiaron y ampliaron mi visión sobre la vida y mi actitud para afrontarla.

La sensación en este lugar es de estar totalmente en familia. Se respira paz y amor en cada esquina. Y por supuesto también están Noa y Fiona. Vuelvo a casa con cuatro nuevos amigos.

Dentro de la casa todo está impoluto.

Hay huerto, gallinas, plantas, piscina y guitarra.

Un 10 :)

Volví siendo una persona diferente a la q llegó a la Tejana, no hay

frase q lo describa mejor q esa. Magia es la palabra. Vicky y Jose encantadores, t hacen sentir en casa, el sitio mágico, la comida increíble. En fin repetiré en cuanto pueda. Acabo de irme y ya los echo de menos. Gracias por tanto¡¡ Por brindarme un sitio donde volver a conectarme con mi esencia, por las sonrisas, por las lágrimas, por la clase de Yoga Nidra(aunque todas fueron súper especiales), por la excursión al corazón de Osorio q es sin dudas una excursión al espíritu, por los abrazos al cuerpo y al alma, por la energía y sobre todo por la inmensa compasión y empatía. De esos viajes q todos debemos hacer muchas veces en la vida. Ha sido mi primer retiro y el listón ha quedado alto. La vida nos pone en el camino a cada uno lo q necesitamos y estos 5 días han sido un regalo. Gracias, gracias, gracias.

Sin demasiadas expectativas iba buscando un descanso y me encontré con un tesoro. Una decisión espontánea y en tres días estaba en La Tejana. Sin duda lo mejor que me ha pasado en mucho tiempo. José y Vicky, tan generosos, me han abierto las puertas de su hogar. He vivido la experiencia perfecta de viajar sintiéndome como en casa. Una combinación de yoga, meditación, turismo, diversión y gastronomía. Una alegría para el cuerpo y para el espíritu. ¡Volveré!

"Maravilloso en todos los aspectos"

El ambiente en la casa es súper acogedor. Es estar arropado y en familia y al mismo tiempo disponer de un espacio y un tiempo propio para reflexionar y relajarte. Las sesiones de yoga las guardaré como un tesoro. Las excursiones a diferentes sitios permiten disfrutar de la isla y el aire libre, renovar y refrescar la energía y abrir mente y corazón. En la experiencia en La Tejana, notas que todo se hace y se prepara con mimo y cuidado para los huéspedes. Ha sido una suerte cruzar caminos con Vicky, Jose Antonio y Elena... y las mascotas de la casa. También creo que es un sitio genial de confluencia con otros viajeros, ya que cuando yo llegué había gente de distintas nacionalidades. Aún con idiomas distintos, conseguimos encontrar intereses comunes. Un auténtico PLACER de estancia.

"D’excellentes vacances dans un cadre très familial"

La maison se trouve dans un cadre de verdure magnifique, au calme, et le jardin est très agréable. Idem pour le studio de yoga. L’accueil est absolument chaleureux, généreux, convivial, à tous les niveaux ! La taille des groupes, limitée à 6 ou 7 personnes est idéale.

"Lohnt sich! "

Entspannung im ländlichen Teil GC.

Ich bin alleine gereist und wurde herzlich empfangen - alle kümmern sich mit großen Herzen um jedes Bedürfnis.

Es ist abgelegen und ruhig, daher ist man nicht gerade flexibel im eigenen Programm. Jedoch wurden Ausflüge so gut geplant, dass sie sehr interessant waren und genug Zeit für Yoga mit Vicky und das unglaublich gute spanische Essen von Jose blieb.

Alles in allem ist die Reise besser als ich erwartet hätte. Am schönsten fand ich, dass die Gastgeber einem mit großem Herzen in die Einheimische Welt mit ihren Sitten, Essen und Ihrer Sprache mitnehmen.

Danke <3

"Experiencia maravillosa"

La generosidad de todos los miembros de La Tejana

Desde el minuto 1 te sientes genial.

Vicky, Elena y Jose te hacen sentir como en casa, o incluso mejor. Es una oportunidad única para desconectar y darle un descanso a tu cuerpo y mente. Además, también conoces lugares maravillosos en un entorno tranquilo y rodeado de naturaleza.

Se adaptan a tu estilo de comida, intolerancias, alergias, etc.

El yoga es muy tranquilo y también se adaptan a todos los niveles. Hasta me enseño Vicky a tocar el cuenco tibetano!

Noa(perrita) y fiona (gatita) son adorables.

¡Gracias por todo!

"una semana de felicidad"

De la Tejana me ha gustado todo. Vicky y José son muy acogedores, el sitio es precioso, las clases de yoga fueron adecuadas para mi nivel y el lugar dedicado a la práctica no solo es hermoso sino que tiene una energía muy positiva.

La comida ha sido siempre variada y buena gracias a José que ha cocinado, especialmente para mi, comida vegana.

La casa también ofrece todas las comodidades a pesar de encontrarse un poco aislada de Teror.

Lo que me pareció maravilloso fue el clima de amistad y de alegría que se generó gracias a los dueños de la casa y a las personas que tuve la suerte de encontrar.

último per no menos importante, el programa de excursiones me gustó y me ha permitido conocer mucho la isla de Gran Canaria.

Recomiendo a La Tejana para un retiro de 7 días.

"Amaizing! "

It was a bit of everything. Time to relax, to be alone, but also time to meet wonderful people and to discover together the beauty of the Gran Canaria. The hosts are just adorable. It feels like home in their enchanting house. Jose's deliciously prepared food, eating and talking by the dining table, trips with Elena, and time to relax by the variety of Vicky's yoga classes. I really can not find any words that could fulfill this wonderful experience ... so just give it a try and make your own experience.:)

La Tejana, muchas gracias! Namaste!

"Relaxing retreat with lots of discoveries"

From the moment you arrive, everything feels very relaxing and easy. They really know how to take care of you, as if you were part of the family. The environment is very lovely, with an amazing view and lots of nature! Very lovely hosts, who know when to accompany you, but also when to leave you space for rest or meditation! Also very good food :) visits were also very interesting and it was a very nice way to discover the island as a native resident! I had an amazing time, with lovely people :)

All people of La Tejana were very welcoming and very friendly. Jose is an excellent cook. Vicky and Jose invited to be part of the family and share their way of life but let you every freedom to do what you want.

The yoga lessions were very relaxing and I learnt many new things like Yoga dance and Yoga Nidra.

The house is in the middle of a green area and so you can relax and forget your everyday life.

Very good was the combination of Yoga and excursions like visiting interesting neerby towns or walking tours. So it never got boring.

And La Tejana is also a great place to meet nice people and practice your Spanish if you want to.

"Increíble, hay que vivirlo no se puede explicar con palabras"

La humildad de sus dueños, te acogen como una gran familia desde el primer día... El lugar, rodeados de naturaleza y escuchando los pájaros... Vicky maestra del yoga (y mira que probé unos cuantos) solo ella consiguió despertar en mi la semilla del verdadero yoga.. Jose como un padre, si te quedas con hambre te hace un huevo frito jajajj pero como lo haría tu madre con todo el cariño del mundo!!! 😊Y que te recojan y te lleven al aeropuerto como si de su familia se tratase no tiene precio..y noa?? La perrita?? Mi compi de paseos!! Una perra noble y muy cariñosa

Olga Romero

Desde que llegas te hacen sentir parte de la familia. Todo es fácil allí. Te van a buscar al aeropuerto, te llevan a conocer la isla, te dan muy bien de comer. Siempre tienen té, café, galletitas y fruta por si te apetece y obviamente un yoga muy bien dirigido y adaptado al grupo. Me gustó la casa, la tranquilidad, la hospitalidad, el buenrollismo, que me concedieran algún caprichito que otro, las risas, el respeto mutuo, el silencio, la piscina, Noa, calidad -precio, que se nota que lo hacen con amor, que nadie te juzga...el amor que se tienen mutuo..todo

"Volver, quiero volver"

Fue mi primer retiro. Me sentí en casa, disfrute cada minuto que pase haciendo yoga con Vicky, de las salidas con Elena, del caracter y risas aseguradas con Jose (sin olvidarme de su comida) los mimos y el amor perruno de Noa... Paisajes, rincones, playas, vistas, visitas...

Mis compañeras de retiro, una mezcla variopinta, imposible de encontrarlas mejores...

Llegué sola y regrese con una gran familia.

"A local experience ! =) "

It's not just a yoga retreat it's much more than that. It's a human experience with local people and an amazing couple : Vicky and José.

I felt like I was visiting my own family !!

Visiting the area with Elena, going to small markets in town, practicing yoga every day with Vicky, sharing stories during diner time, eating amazing food prepared by José and joking around with everyone... it makes you feel so comfortable and also relaxed, that you don't want to leave their beautiful house !

It's a unique experience and they know how to take good care of you !

Thanks again for everything, I will always remember you guys =)

"Excellent stay at La Tejana"

I had an extremely pleasant stay at La Tejana. I felt very welcome right from the start. Vicky and José were very hospitable and flexible and did everything they could to make me feel at home. The yoga lessons were all very good and varied, some with locals which was great fun. The food was great and the hike to a nature park and visits to Las Palmas and several local villages were very enjoyable. After only a few days I felt as relaxed as if I had been on a holiday for weeks!

"Una experiencia maravillosa "

Este fue mi primer retiro de yoga y meditación y la verdad fue una excelente experiencia. Vicky y Jose son unas personas maravillosas, carismáticas y muy acogedoras; que te hace sentir como en casa desde el primer momento. Las clases de yoga son muy buenas y variadas no se trataba de una clase de yoga dinámica simplemente, sino que nos concentramos en la ejecución correcta de las diferentes asanas y técnicas de respiración, lo que fue muy importante para mi ya que nunca obtuve esta información de manera tan detallada. La comida es deliciosa Jose te sorprende todos los días con recetas saludables y muy sabrosas. Las caminatas con Saulo y Elena son muy divertidas tienes la oportunidad de ver y explorar la naturaleza muy cercanamente. El lugar y las instalaciones son muy bonitas especialmente el estudio de yoga que está rodeado de unas vistas hermosas. En general la compañía y el lugar han hecho del retiro una experiencia estupenda e inolvidable.

"Juste ce ont j'avais besoin"

J'a apprécié le fait que ce soit ouvert toute l'année, et pas juste à des dates bien précises. Je cherchais à passer des vacances sans être seule. Combiner yoga à un niveau débutant et tourisme était juste parfait pour moi. L'ambiance était très sympa, et j'ai appris beaucoup avec le yoga. On se sentait en famille.

"Very nice retreat"

The hosts are perfect : nice, caring and welcoming. The yoga lessons were also great and the yoga room very enjoyable. As well as the food (with local products), and I’m glad I could eat vegan & healthy during the whole stay. I also liked the diverse excursions/visits. I’m happy I could practice Spanish. I recommend this yoga retreat.

"Home sweet home "

Vicky und ihr Mann José sind super nette Gastgeber, versuchen all deine Wünsche umzusetzen. Man merkt, dass beide mit herzblut dahinter stehen.

Seit dem Tag meiner Ankunft habe ich mich wie Zuhause gefühlt und trotz dass ich anfangs der einzige Gast war, habe ich alle Yogastunden bekommen, was oft nicht selbstverständlich ist. Die Umgebung ist sehr schön und es ist ein sehr ruhiger Ort.

"Una experiencia enriquecedora, genuina y autentica"

Experiencia regenerante y enriquecedora que aunque no fuese mi primer retiro, a diferencia de otros sitios ha superado con creces mis expectativas.

La Tejana, un lugar mágico rodeado por un entorno natural muy sugestivo cuidado con cariño por un equipo formidable y muy profesional.

Vicky, una maestra de yoga de amplia formación muy empática que sabe adaptar las clases según el estado o las dolencias de los alumnos (en mi caso tenía una hernia discal operada).

Jose, una persona generosa de espíritu, confiado y atento, lo que lo hace un excelente coach, ademas se dedica con alma y cuerpo al cuidado de la finca.

Saulo, de conversación inteligente y divertida, ha sido mi acompañador fuera de la Tejana, con su conocimiento geográfico, histórico y cultural de Gran Canaria ha logrado que las salidas fueran siempre muy interesantes y entrañables.
