"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!

"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.

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.

"Experiencia maravillosa con personas inolvidables"

La calidez de las personas que dan sin esperar recibir nada a cambio. Sin duda, compartir todo lo que tienen y más.

"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

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.

"Mi muevo hogar el Las Palmas"

La acogida, te sientes como en familia.

Las actividades se programan cada semana para los que llegamos, a nuestra salud y intereses, mirando al sol para que disfrutemos al máximo posible no solo del yoga sino de todo el norte de gran canaria, confió en poder volver.

"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.
