Program

This retreat welcomes all levels of practitioners. Ladan Soltani, your instructor, always has a mixture of people attending. Ladan can cater for beginners to advanced. The style of yoga varies too as Ladan has trained in quite a few disciplines, such as Sivananda (Hatha style ) and Ashtanga. She really works with the feel of the group and meets the needs and requirements of her class participants at that moment, adapting with modifications or more challenging versions of the postures for those who want the option.

Each morning, you’ll start the day with a yoga class followed by a healthy, vegetarian brunch using locally, produced organic food, prepared by one of the Islands top chefs. All dietary requirements can be catered for.

The evening sessions will be varied such as Yin yoga, yoga Nidra, breath work ( pranayama ), guided meditation, sound healing and a yoga workshop for core strength and back care, then you can enjoy a delicious dinner.

There will be plenty of time between the morning and evening sessions to explore the wonders of this Island and learn about history. Alternatively, you can stay at the Villa and take a relaxing massage or peacefully read a book by the solar panel, heated swimming pool.

This is the perfect opportunity for solo travelers to make friends and meet like-minded people.

Retreat location

This retreat takes place at Villa Amatista in Tinajo, Lanzarote, Las Palmas, Spain. Lanzarote is located at the same latitude as the Hawaiian islands, giving it the same sense of peace and tranquility, yet this island is unique in its beauty.

Lanzarote is the easternmost island of the Spanish archipelago. It’s around 125 km off the coast of Africa, meaning the weather is glorious most of the year, where the sun shines with clear blue sky’s. In December, you’ll get average highs of 22°C during the hottest part of the day.

Nature and geology are unlike anywhere else in the world, granting it a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve protected site status where mountains meet the oceans and 300 volcanoes with black lava colors next to green plants and multicolored waters. The island is blessed with magnificent sunshine all year round with enormous bright light and amazing colorful sunrises and sunsets. The landscape is diverse with breathtaking beauty.

Please book your flight to arrive at Lanzarote Airport (ACE).

Ladan Soltani highly recommends hiring a car during your stay as the retreat is in a peaceful, rural setting. ‘Plus Car’ is a local company the venue have been using for many years who are reliable and economical.

Driving directions from Lanzarote Airport (ACE)

  • From the airport take the motorway in the direction of "Arrecife".
  • Take the first exit to "Playa Honda".
  • At the first mini roundabout take the second exit and keep straight parallel to the motorway.
  • At the next big roundabout take the third exit under the motorway.
  • Go straight over the next roundabout and follow the signs to "San Bartolomé".
  • After passing through “San Bartolomé” you come to a roundabout, on the other side of which is the tall white “Monumento del Campesino” (one of the first works of Cesar Manrique showing clearly the influence of Picasso and Cubism). Take the second exit to “Tinajo and Mozaga.”
  • At the next roundabout, take the second exit to "Tinajo”.
  • Pass through the village of “Tao” and then through the village of “Tiagua”.
  • As you exit the village of “Tiagua” keep left towards “Mancha Blanca” and “Timanfaya”.
  • “La Vegueta” is the next village.
  • One kilometer further you will arrive at the crossroads in the village of “La Vegueta”.
  • You will see a small football pitch on your left and a local shop with a yellow letterbox on your right.
  • After 400 meters on your right, there is a large pink house set back from the road. After 20 meters, where the road starts to go down slightly, turn left into “Camino las Huertitas”. The sign is not very visible.
  • After another 400 meters just before the white wall of the first house on this road turn right where you see an “Amatista” sign with an arrow on it (if you miss that turn you will end up in a cul-de-sac).
  • Follow the road up, and around to the left another 500 meters. On your left before the end of this road you will see first the number nine and shortly afterwards the number 11 with the entrance sign for Villa Amatista. If you go around another corner, you have come too far.
