Yoga on the beach was a perfect compliment to the relaxed island vibe alongside surfing. Tjasa was extremely accomodating finding me a surf instructor and arranged some beautiful walks on the mountains/beach and evening cooking lessons. I had a great stay and was rest assured having been given all the local information. The yoga classes were inspiring and am so grateful to have chosen such nice people to share some time and holiday with!
I can't really find any.. I felt quite at home and very looked after.

The whole week was brilliant. We had a massage which lasted for 1 hour plus 7 yoga classes - 6 on the beach and one in the sand dunes. Tjasa is a brilliant teacher - very patient and showed options for a variety of levels so it does not matter if you are not a yoga expert!
Tjasa was very professional. Classes started punctually and lasted for around 1 hour 15 mins each. She also gave us tips about other activities which were available and suggested places to eat and took us on a volcano trek one evening. Her local knowledge was very helpful as it was our first visit to the area.
The apartment was in a very nice complex with excellent pool and garden. Nice and quiet.

Muy recomendable! El alojamiento esta bien ubicado y centrico. Las clases de yoga se adecuan a cada persona permitiendo así aprovechar al máximo cada sesión y gracias a Tjasa perfeccionas cada postura. Era nuestro primer retiro de yoga y nos ha encantado. Thank you!

Accomodaties liggen uit elkaar, als single reiziger kan je dat niet opmaken op de website en als je alleen reist wil je soms anderen ontmoeten via bv de yoga en ook als je in dezelfde accommodatie verblijft.

Great yoga classes
A bit desapointed by the accommodation that was not part of a common area reserved for Oceanyoga Fuerteventura bookers

I enjoyed the calming beach classes, lovely accommodation and good company, the fact that everything was within walking distance. It was overall a very relaxing and easy going yoga getaway.

I would recommend this holiday for everybody. For 6 days I forgot all my problems, I just lived in the present. The desert trekking was amazing, thanks to Laurence. He is really kind and you feel relaxed in his company. I am a total beginner at yoga. Tjasa was a really good teacher, she made me love the yoga. I have never tried surfing before and Marco was a really patient teacher, I enjoyed it. The massage is worth to try too. If you have any pain , Arsen will help you to release it. The accomodation is clean and you got everything what you need there. If you need something you just ask Jure and he will make sure you will get it and he makes you smile every time too. Thank you.

I'm just back from my one week yoga escape and am so happy that I went on this journey! One week of Yoga in a beautiful location, meeting a lot of wonderful people- I totally recommend it! A huge thanks to Tjasa to her hospitality and the great yoga sessions- I really liked how she was able to tune in to the different levels of the participants and how everyone was able to practice in a way that was good for them! Also the house is very nice and the environment is just wonderful with the most beautiful beaches and clear blue water!The package also includes a great massage- just the best to relax from all the yoga classes and get some new energy! I also think it's a great advantage that there is no special check in or out time,so that you really can use all the time you have on your travel days. And it's great that there are also some extra offers you can add to the package if you like to! Thanks a lot for a wonderful week in a great house with wonderful people and a nice and laid back atmosphere!
I wish I could score 11 out of ten. I went on this retreat with nerves as a single traveller, being on my own, I felt would be a challenge. From day 1 of this retreat however, I felt at home. I was welcomed with a beautiful smile by Tjasa, who was excellent at communicating schedules and all the information that I needed throughout the trip. This is an excellent holiday retreat for Solo's or couples. The shops and town itself is easily accesible and I found hiring a bike and cycling to the beach or to my favourite breakfast spot a real treat. The yoga with Tjasa and also with Lawrence saw me increase my flexibility and confidence only after a few sessions! The 'Dune Walk' was outstanding and I can't recommend it enough. The massage was very much welcomed and was quite a treat! I also treasured my time and memories surfing and the instructor was outstanding in his practice and skill as a teacher. I will definately return in the near future! Thanks Oceanyoga for an amazing holiday!
I had a wonderful time at Oceanyoga Fuerteventura. The level of teaching was way beyond what I expected - Elena and Lawrence are gifted teachers and I thoroughly enjoyed their attention to detail - and the fact that we went to several locations - the roof terrace, the beach and the dunes. I loved the meditation we did at the volcano and also my full body massage. The trip was just what I wanted and it was lovely to meet Tjasa too, although our paths just crossed briefly.
Fantastic holiday with amazing yoga, and a great group of people. Recommend.

My visit to Oceanyoga Fuerteventura was my first holiday alone, (and my first of this kind), and it didn’t disappoint.
Tjasa was incredibly warm and welcoming, and I felt immediately at ease and at home - made even better by the gorgeous vegan snacks to welcome us!
This holiday was certainly enriched by the great company of the other guests, and Tjasa, Ursa and Matjeaus - (spelling incorrect, sorry) went out of their way to make sure we ate fabulous food, were relaxed, and had a great yoga experience at all times. This was even more apparent because the weather was particularly unseasonable, and they rallied seamlessly to make sure that we still had a great experience, going above and beyond to arrange excursions and treats on our behalf.
Love this place and these fabulous people. I’ve recommended it to anyone who’ll listen and I’ll certainly be back - probably this year!
Thank you all for a wonderful and memorable holiday. Probably also useful to mention that I am a beginner in yoga and I was extremely well accommodated, so if you’re wavering - go for it!
A truly relaxing week with Tjasa and Ursa - and thanks to Matjas for the wonderful food. The yoga was a good mix of fast-paced flow and more gentle, calming yoga on the beach (weather permitting!). The alignment workshops were really useful and I’m so pleased I managed my first solo headstand. The weather was not the wall to wall sunshine you’d expect from the Canaries, but it didn't put a dampener on the week - which was more like a holiday than a retreat. The ladies went out of their way to make the week special, organising horse riding and impromptu pedicures / massages (on top of the complimentary massage). It was my birthday during the retreat and Tjasa made a wonderful vegan chocolate cake, which everyone now has the recipe for! Highly recommended.

As regards Oceanyoga Fuerteventura I appreciate a lot the yoga workshops provided by Ellena. She is the amazing yoga teacher with the holistic positive approach...I would like to follow her as a teacher after the holidays! I will come back to Fuerteventura for her and for the superb Fuertaventura's beaches as soon as I can! I can recommend also the therapist Arsen who makes amazing massage!
However I have to admit that the Oceanyoga I will not take it for the second time as a holiday retreat and I will not recommend it to my friends. It was far from professional job....

Mijn eerste keer op Fuerteventura en mijn eerste keer op vakantie met yoga en eerste keer alleen op vakantie. Yogasessies in de ochtend vond ik prettig. Een goede start van de dag. Tjasa is prettig en behulpzaam. Haar yogalessen waren fijn en ontspannend. Ik verbleef in Oasis Tamarindo. Mijn appartement was ruim en comfotabel. De locatie was mooi, veel palmbomen. Het weer zeer aangenaam; heerlijk zelfs. Wel had ik alleen BCC World News als tv kanaal. De rest was Duits, Frans of Spaans. Beetje weinig voor anno 2016. Op Fuerteventura zijn de mensen aardig, sfeer is rustig en ontspannen. Wie een weekje wil ontspannen en actief bezig zijn met mooi weer is op de juiste plek op Fuerteventura. Ik zal echter niet snel weer alleen op vakantie gaan, ondanks dat het me best mee viel. Leuker om gezelschap te hebben.

I had a chilled and relaxing holiday at Ocean Yoga just 2 weeks ago in July 2017. I had a quick browse at all the other reviews on this page from 2016 and have to say that Tjasa standard is still exceptional! Tjasa has been extremely helpful in answer all questions from her love for Yoga and Corralejo. Tjasa is on time, caring and a lovely soul! She cares!
I traveled on my own and I stayed at the Oasis Tamarindo. It's a very beautiful and quiet venue a short 15 minute walk away from the Yoga/Surf House and Hiper Dino (big shop). I also visited the fun and friendly Yoga House and Surf House as part of the main Ocean Yoga residence. They invited me for Paella, drinks and Faijatas too. Fun relaxed and likeminded people!
This Yoga Retreat allowed me to have a balance of spirituality, time alone and a bit of partying in Corralejo too (had an emergency and the owner of the Underground that totally took care of me! Was in totally safe hands!!). The self catering allowed me to continue on my diet (intermittment fasting or even the 5 2 diet). Even to this day, my weight has slowly dropped!
During my 1 week stay and as part of the package, I also participated in the beautiful 1 hour volcano walk, vegan cuisine lesson with 4 other male students and Nina, I attended 6 out of 7 yoga sessions on the beach (she even did a bonus session for the students) and 1 on the Sand Dunes, had a relaxation massage with Arson and I also did the beginner's surf lesson with Marcel!!
Lovely team from Slovenia team and Germany to make Corralejo a Holiday in Paradise!!

I had a great yoga holiday, my own private apartment was spacious and comfortable, overlooking the pools and gardens and just perfect to destress and take time for myself. I really enjoyed beach classes, but my favourite were definitely classes at the dunes. Simply peaceful and just what I needed.
I have recently returned from a holiday with Oceanyoga Fuerteventura where I had a great break. It was my first time doing yoga classes and I loved it. Tjasa is very welcoming, helpful and an excellent yoga teacher. The classes were all different and well paced. The apartments are in a great location with good facilities. Fuerteventura is a lovely island with great beaches with plenty to do for either an active or relaxing holiday. I really enjoyed my holiday and have been inspired to carry on with yoga now I am home. I would recommend this holiday.

I have just returned from a yoga holiday hosted by Tjasa from Ocean Yoga in Corralejo, Fuerventura. Even though I traveled with a friend, I practiced yoga alone with our group.
It was fantastic to wake up to blue skies and sunshine each morning and make my way to wonderful yoga sessions on the beach. Furthermore, Tjasa had organised two trips for us; a walk, yoga session and picnic among the sand dunes outside town and a group walk, snacks and meditation session, hosted by Nina, to one of the bigger volcano craters lying dormant on the island. Our accommodation was comfortable, spacious and clean. The location was ideal as we were near shops, bars and restaurants. Luckily we were not by the nightlife hub, even though a pleasant walk by the shore took us there if we were interested! Tjasa had organised a full body massage with an excellent therapist for each of us. All of the above was included in our payment.If we did wish to partake in other activities such as surfing, visiting other islands or even other fabulous island locations public transport and agencies made it easy! Tjasa was available to take any of our queries throughout our trip.This yoga holiday gave me the personal space to practice yoga, meditate and enjoy Fuerteventura independently!
I found Oceanyoga and Tjasa to be refreshingly unpretentious. The classes on the beach and in the sand dunes were so grounding and with only the sound of the sea, a gentle breeze and sometimes some interested goats spectating, it really helped me to relax, unwind and enjoy the moment.Tjasa is extremely professional and attended to every question I had. She is very accommodating for all levels of people attending her yoga classes. I stayed in the private apartment which is spacious, secluded (especially in October) and safe. The massage provided by Arsen was second to none and was so good I booked a second one during my week away. Corralejo is an unspoilt haven and you can do a day trip to other beaches nearby like El Cotillo. I literally floated home after my week away! Highly recommended!
