See Yoga Holidays is an invitation to enjoy. An opportunity to let yoga be your daily companion, merge into the Canarian lifestyle, meet new people, connect to Nature and have a time for yourself.
Yoga Retreats (3)
She was initiated in the first and second level of Reiki Usui to start exploring with the movement of energy throughout the body. When she first try yoga in 2006, she finally found the serenity she needed in her everyday life. Laura decided to be a Certified Yoga Teacher (Yoga Alliance, RYT 200) to start gratefully giving something in return to what yoga gave her. That gentle way to enjoy the present moment, awaken your body, calm your mind, and delightfully listen. Nowadays, she is leading 200h Yoga Teacher Trainings and Afroyin Method workshops.
After studying and working 12 years in the fashion industry, in January 2014 Marta quit her job and traveled around Central America. She was tired of the industry and needed a break to find balance again and go back to her own essence.Then was when she started to connect with the yoga’s philosophy and ended living in an ashram of Sivananda lineage in the Bahamas for a few months.It was in the ashram where she decided to deepen into her practice doing the Certified Teacher Training and since then she teaches Vinyasa, Hatha and Yin Yoga combined with sound relaxation techniques and meditatation.

Yoga lessons were so nice, peaceful, and we really calmed down. We also got a lot of good advice to practice in our everyday life. We enjoyed very much the trip with Laura and tree planting with her husband. We are happy that we could contribute to be this beautiful island more green.

"Outstanding quality time"
The yoga classes were great, I felt part of a community. Thanks Laura for the extra activities of wine and coffee tasting and tree plantation, absolutely recommended to anyone willing to take a break and reconnect with nature.

I loved the enthusiasm and the care taken from the moment of arrival to departure.
Everyone was so friendly and encouraging. I opted for a studio apartment which was 3 minutes walk from the surf house and 5 minutes from the yoga studio.Self catering for breakfasts and snacks is so easy as the shops are 1 minute away.
Very small intimate yoga classes the energy of which is led by the clients. Fabulous teachers Leila and Marta - 2 totally different styles but equally enjoyable.
The surfing lessons were really enjoyable too. As a total beginner and in quite rough seas ( and being 60) I found it a great challenge but I always felt watched , corrected and assisted. Very exhilarating. Being able to stand on a board once just for a couple of seconds felt like a real achievement for me, but made me want to do more.
The day trip to the farm for wine tasting etc was a real treat, interesting and great to see a different part of the island. Same too with the tree planting.
On this holiday you have the opportunity to be as sociable ( or not ) as you wish as there are plenty of opportunities to share with the other guests and the really excellent team and their intern workers.
Jordi, Laura , Lea, Jake, Adrianna and Alice- I thank you for a truly memorable holiday and experience.

"Great Yoga instructor"
Laura's positive and open-minded attitude towards a very diverse crowd of yoga visitors + flexibility towards the guests. Since I didn't want surf classes, Laura made a really good yoga/day-trip package which fitted my needs perfectly. Highly recommendable.

"Amazing Yoga Teachers! 💖🙏😊"
I really loved this trip! I got to experience three different yoga teachers approaches in a week and have learnt so much from it! The trips were also great so not only did I have great yoga I also got to see lots of the island too and had amazing weather and still had time in between to relax on the beautiful beach! Thanks for a great time! 💖👍

"Absolutely Brilliant Experience for all the Family"
Everything, form the fantastic staff (Paul, you're wonderful, thank you for looking after us) who felt like friends from the beginning, communicated really clearly and regularly about meeting times and places and provided us all with personal attention and so much help and advice to support us in a new country. To the amazing location, the top-class yoga (Marta and Laura are both incredible women, other-worldly, gentle and powerful at the same moment). The waves! Huge, crashing and beautiful. The golden sandy beach! Stunning. The energy of the people in Las Palmas has to be experienced to believed! Will go back for sure, it's just How Soon!

Sehr gute Betreuung durch die Praktikantin Zuzana
from Germany, July 2019
Sehr gut gefallen hat mir die exzellente Betreuung von Laura und Marta sowie die Möglichkeit flexibel zu sein, was Zeiten und Events anging. Wegen Krankheit zu Beginn des Urlaubs, konnten zwei Kurse verschoben und zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt wahrgenommen werden. Sehr empfehlenswerte Gastgeber!
from United States, January 2019
Wir wurden sehr herzlich von Lea empfangen. Sie machte mit uns auch gleich ein kleiner Rundgang durch die Stadt, damit sie uns zeigen konnte, wo sich die Lebensmittelläden befinden. Die beiden, Lea und Jake, waren sehr nett und sympathisch und standen bei jeder Frage zur Verfügung. Der Daily Trip und das Tree Planting mit der ganzen Gruppe waren gut organisiert und so konnten wir auch gleich noch Jordi, der Organisator, kennen lernen. Auch er war sehr nett und gab uns auch gleich noch verschiedene Insider Tipps z.B zum Essen. Das Appartement war gut und zweckmäßig ausgestattet -Gewürze und Salz, das Küchentuch zum Abtrocknen vom Geschirr besser selber mitnehmen. Die Yoga Lektionen, besonders diese von Marta und Laura, waren sehr gut.
Website mit Insider-Tipps war sehr hilfreich.

"Amazing holiday to get your mind off of everyday fuss."
From first contact to reserve my one week holiday, until the goodbye, See Yoga team with Laura, Jordi, Lea and Jake make you feel integrated to the peaceful and kind environment that you also find once you arrive on the island.
Great and always happy surf instructors even for the beginner level for me. They helped me master the 8’´ and 7’´ board in just a week on white waves!!🏄🏼♂️🏝
For yoga lessons I had 3 different but very professional and great teachers Lila, Marta and Laura. For a beginner as me, I just take away from these yoga lessons an absolute refreshing feel of my body and mind + no more backpain thanks to good body position exercises. It was just amazing feel after these lessons! 🧘♂️🙏✨
Las Palmas coast is full of nice tapas restaurants so the food was great also.
With all people who were there with yogaretreats at the same time we had an organized tapas night out in Vegueta which is perfect to party 🎉 !
And we also went tree planting to contribute to the reforestation of the island 🌴 💪🏻
I think I cannot express my thanks enough in this message but I’m really greatful to the whole team and to you Laura for this amazing holiday ! 🙏✨
Surf, tapas, yoga, sleep, repeat.
See you again soon,

"Week in Paradise"
Yogalessen, trip met de auto op het eiland (dat was echt een topper!), wijn-en koffieproeverij, de prachtige locatie aan de Playa Canteras in Las Palmas, bezoek aan de rumfabriek, muziektour. En natuurlijk gewoon het heerlijke klimaat met zon, een klein beetje wind, de zee en het strand.
from Czechia, November 2017
I spent 1 week at yoga and surf retreat which I knew will be good but in the end it over- exceeded my expectations. The retreat was very well organized and it was obvious that all involved people teachers intern do their job with love and are very enthused. For yoga class I experienced 2 teachers with different styles and both of them enriched me a lot with new ideas and thoughts . the surf class was also fun even for beginner I enjoyed a lot.
Apart from the classes there were lots of other interesting activities like exploring the island, delicious curry dinner evening, the idea of giving something back to the island -to plant the tree was amazing.
One negative point was that I had to return home and that all my muscles hurt but this was compensated with excellent relaxing massage after which I felt totally relaxed like in a heaven.
from United States, March 2019
Lovely friendly helpful staff. Rooftop veranda in appartment was fantastic. Very close to the beach and yoga studio. Carol was great for massage as was Laura for reiki. They are both so kind and caring. I enjoyed the tree planting ( bring runners/clothes you don't mind getting dusty and dirty). Anyone who did the surfing loved it too. A variety of ages and nationalities. You can chose how many of the activities you want to join in with.

"Great Varied Yoga Holiday"
Good mix of styles of Yoga, with good attention to detail. It was interesting to have different teachers with their varied approaches, and each gave us something new and different. Lovely atmosphere in class. Beautiful accommodation close to the sea front in Las Palmas Gran Canaria. We were looked after well from the moment we stepped off the plane until the moment we left. Bonus of a relaxing day trip to swimming cove and mountains in good company.

"Good trip to Gran Canaria"
I booked only yoga classes and surfing lessons.Hotel was arranged by myself.
Laura and her husband Jordi were very good hosts.Helped with everything that we needed.I went on a surf classes 2 times instead of 5 😀So can not write too much.Wind was too strong and was very hard for the beginner in big group.I attended only 1 Yoga Class,but as I heard from others Laura is very professional and good teacher.So go for it 😀👍

"Brilliant yoga holiday!"
Loved Las palmas as a city, was able to walk every where. Yoga classes were excellent and I felt that Marta and laura really geared the class to individuals needs. My studio flat was very well equipped and in a fantastic location overlooking the promenade and sea. The day trip and tree planting were lovely and good fun. I loved all the fruit trees and banana plantations on the island. Had a very good massage too which was very holistic. Las Palmas has some great shops within walking distance. I also had a great gel manicure in a local salon. There are many many fantastic restaurants and tapas bars to choose from. Loved the interm Lukas wjo was very friendly and helpful. I met some fun new friends on the holiday and I would definitely go back next year!

"Yoga in Las Palmas"
I was very impressed how well organised the included programs were. There was something to do together almost every day (two half-daytrips, curry night in the hostel, tapas night in the city centre, concert night), and the interns, especially Christin were very nice and helpful, taking us around and answering our questions. I was travelling solo so I found that very comforting. Laura's husband, Jordi was very nice too, he took us to one of the daytrips to see a very pretty plantation and some natural pools.
The rooftop was a great place to do yoga on and the massage that was included in the package was professional and relaxing.
I didn't actually meet Laura as she just had a baby but we were in touch via phone and she seemed to genuinely care about helping us have a good time.
I also liked the authentic feel of the place: a lot of Spanish people live in Las Palmas, so being there felt a bit like living there, not being on a vacation there.

"Great yoga, friendly people and relaxing experience"
Everyone I met through See Yoga were all very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed the yoga classes and Marta especially took time out to explain and correct the yoga postures which was very useful. I now feel more secure on how to carry on my yoga lessons at home. Everyone at the hostel were all really friendly, sociable and kept the house clean. Not always easy sleeping in a room with 12 people coming and going, so next time I´ll book a private room. The day trips were a lovely surprise and we all had a fantastic time hiking and visiting the vineyard and other great places north of the island.

Everybody of the staff was very nice and very helpful, especially Paul and Bogna were great, well-organised and superfriendly. I totally enjoyed my stay in hitide hostel and can only recommend it.
from Spain, May 2017
I stayed 2 weeks with See Yoga. Right from exchanging e-mails Laura and Julia were really helpful and welcoming. I had extra yoga lessons and during the weeks I changed some yoga lessons to surf lessons. Learned a lot with two different teachers! Tree planting was a huge plus and very awesome thing to do as an activity. Las Canteras is touristy, but safe and nice place to stay. Hostel could use new pillows, but otherwise it's clean and good place to stay.
Big thank you to the interns Paul, Mathilde and Michelle for their help! And of course thanks to Laura, Jordi and Julia for making this one of the best holidays I've had! Namaste.

"The best family yoga and surf holiday in Gran Canaria with Laura and Marta "
We went on a week of Holiday with my two adult children ,19 yr old son and 23 yr old daughter . My children enjoyed the surf lessonsand the company. We all had a gala time with Marta teaching us yoga every morning. My husband who had no experience of yoga ,had loads of fun and enjoyed the yoga lessons . The trips arranged by Laura and her Husband were amazing. We all danced in the street concert,planted trees in the mountain, did yoga in the roof top and tasted the wine in the trips.Tasted the mouth watering authentic Spanish food available in the different restaurants close to our accomodation. The body message by Carol was excellent. Michelle and Yulia had always a welcoming smile which was infectious.
The driver who picked us and dropped was very friendly. The tape's trip at night was a experinece in itself.
The fact that the holiday had not only yoga and wellbeing but various other activities ,made this family holiday a life time experience. We will definitely visit again to try classes with Marta and message with Carol and more sunshine.

"Toller erholsamer Urlaub und super Yoga Stunden"
Mein Aufenthalt bei seeyoga war einfach super. Anfangs bekommt man eine kleine Tour und einen Stundenplan für die Woche. Neben den Yogastunden gibt es auch einen Ausflug in den Nordwesten und man ein Mal zusammen einen Baum Pflanzen. Laura und Jordi uns ihre Mitarbeit sind tolle Hosts, die einem den Aufenthalt sehr angenehm machen.
Die Yoga Stunden sind bei unterschiedlichen Lehren, so ist für jeden Geschmack etwas dabei. Neben kraftvollen Stunden, gibt es auch sehr meditative Stunden, bei denen man nicht "nur" Yoga praktiziert, sondern auch sich selbst reflektiert und seinen Körper ganz neu wahrnimmt.
Man hat die Möglichkeiten neben den Yoga Stunden auch noch Surfkurse zu buchen, muss man aber nicht. Die Gruppe ist dadurch sehr gut durchmischt und jeder hat seinen eigenen Stundenplan. Trotzdem kann man zusammen Mittagessen gehen, Tapas essen oder andere Dinge unternehmen. Denn neben den Yogastunden bleibt noch ausreichend Zeit am Strand zu sein und die Insel zu erkunden.
Ich kann seeyoga nur empfehlen, wenn man gerne ein Yoga Retreat machen möchte, dabei aber trotzdem sie Chance haben möchte eigene Zeit zu verplanen.
Als Alleinreisende gar kein Problem, sehr viele Teilnehmer waren alleine unterwegs. Dadurch hat sich wenn man möchte, immer jemand gefunden etwas gemeinsam zu unternehmen.

Mijn verblijf in het hostel Hi Tide was heerlijk en de yoga lessen van Lilah en Maria waren inspirerend, liefdevol en professioneel; enorm lieve instructrices.

"a holiday to remember "
I absolutly loved the yoga lessons and the yoga teachers. We were always asked how we were feeling and if we had special wishes. We were a small group, max. 5 people, I also had a one-on-one lesson with Marta which I will remember for a long time (again, than you so much for that, Marta). We where mostly beginners with some experience. Important to know, we didn't do flow or "dynamic" yoga but where mostly concentrating on recreation (Ying Yoga with Laura) or really understanding and executing asanas (Marta). In yoga studios I never got these in-depth informations so it was a whole new and very important experience for me. If you have special wishes, don't hesitate to ask Laura about it :-) - she doesn't do just ying yoga, so she will try to go with what you like.
Last but not least, I didn't expect to meet people to spend time with, but as it was, I meet some very amazing people and had some really awsome fun days!

"A nice experience to discover yoga"
Very caring and warmful teachers, with the spiritual touch I was looking for. They give personal advice, don't judge, let people time to enjoy the activities without rushing, are very flexible. I chose to live in one of their private apartments, 2 streets from the yoga studio, and it was perfectly clean, safe, with a small view on the ocean. I definitely recommend this yoga retreat.

Die Volonteers waren super, die Lehrer sehr gut und einfühlsam. Ich habe die ersten Yoga Erfahrungen gesammelt und denke das ich es weiter praktizieren werde. Der Standort für den Unterricht und die verschiedenen Möglichkeiten zu wohnen sind super. Die Aktivitäten sind abwechslungsreich und super organisiert. Man hat aber auch genug Zeit für sich. Eines meiner Highlights war der rooftop Unterricht und der Unterricht am Strand.

If you like an active holiday with plenty of time to relax, then this is something for you!
The yoga lessons during the week where really good. Both teachers are flexible, kind and professional and provide you with all the help you need.
I also really enjoyed the daytrip, hiking through the beautiful mountains of Cran Canaria. And I booked a massage in the salon. If you like a full body massage, then I recommend you to go there.
The location of my apartment was next to the beach, overlooking the ocean! And everything you need is within walking distance.
All in all a valuable and memorable experience!
from Spain, April 2017
Las libertad de tener bastante tiempo libre para organizarme a mi gusto,la distancia a pie de absolutamente todo,las sesiones redicidas de yoga en el estudio,la idea de plantsr un árbol como agradecimiento...¡fueron muchas cosas! La comida no la calificonporque corría por mi cuenta.
Very well organised, personable and lovely people.
This retreat was AMAZING: I enjoyed every single minute of it. The yoga teacher Martha was one of the best, always smiling, giving perfect instructions and challenges for beginners but also for more advanced yogis. The day trip, the massage and planted a tree were also incredible! I could not stop smiling. This retreat totally is worth its price.
My retreat at See Yoga Holiday was an amazing experience! Our teacher, Marta, is an excellent instructor with lots of great energy. Laura, the program coordinator, is an absolutely beautiful soul!
My apartment accommodation was comfortable and convenient for access to everything! And our trips to the other parts of the island made great vacation memories. Visit See Yoga Holiday and you will not be disappointed! Namaste
I had a real great stay in Las Palmas. I enjoyed the yoga classes taught by Martha very much. The holiday week was very well organized. You met the yogis and also some surf people at the excursion to El Risco where we made a walk to a little waterfall and afterwards we visited Puerto de las Nieves joined by the organizers Laura and her husband. Both of them are really very nice and take care of everything so that everybody feels comfortable. The planting tree tour to a farm near Teror was amazing as well, so we helped to regrow the canarian forest.
I liked the mixture of having free time to go to the beach or somewhere else and doing yoga or making the tours. I would recommend this Yoga retreat to everybody.
Matilda Ekström Sundberg
The Yoga retreat at Las Palmas, Gran Canaria was a very good recreation in a so beautiful environment. It´s not really a retreat - instead you go there and participate in different yoga sessions. You need some experience of yoga to feel comfortable in this week I think.
Our spanish yoga leader Marta was great and the Italian leader too (don´t remember his name). But I think you can make it better with more connection between the yoga leaders, so that they both now what we did at last yoga class. Now it seemed to be no connection between the yoga leaders which was strange to me. Breakfast buffet after the yoga sessions would be included referred to the rather high price for the week (550 euro for the yoga sessions and a week in the apartment).
The trip with Laura and the group to the mountains and the small waterfall was very beautiful, but it would be even better if you prepare your guests for the next trip to bring good shoes, waterbottle and a sunhat.
We stayed in an nice apartment just on the beach promenade and the location is central and very close to the yogastudio. The only thing I missed was that the apartment would be even better if it´s included some cleaning during the week. Now it wasn't cleaned at all during the week and that is too little. We payed rather much and I think it´s reasonable that it should be at least one cleaning included during a whole week.
It was a good retreat. Laura and company have made a good mix of yoga and pleasant leisure time.
Es war alles sehr gut organisiert, die Yoga Lehrer sind super ausgebildet und Jordi's Ausflüge haben ganz viel Spaß gemacht. Die Lage des Appartments ist traumhaft. Ich habe mich sehr gut erholt und werde diesen schönen Urlaub gerne weiter empfehlen.
Ich habe mit BookYogaRetreats (See Yoga) eine Woche auf Gran Canaria verbracht. Es war eine wunderbare Woche. Laura und ihr Team haben dafür gesorgt, dass man sich von Anfang an, also von der ersten Anfrage bis zum Abreisetag, gut aufgehoben und willkommen gefühlt hat. Sowohl die morgendlichen Yoga-Stunden als auch die zwei Yoga-Einheiten auf der Dachterasse waren wundervoll. Ich habe sehr viel Spaß gehabt und konnte an meiner Flexibilität arbeiten ohne mich unwohl zu fühlen. Der Kurs hat sowohl Einsteiger als auch Fortgeschrittene optimal abgedeckt. Untergebracht war ich im nahegelenden Surfhostel Las Palmas. Die Dachterasse dort ist ein Traum, die MitarbeiterInnen sehr freundlich und auch die Hostelgäste sind bunt gemischt. Viele wollten ihrem beruflichen Alltag für einen Augenblick entkommen. Natürlich waren einige in Feierlaune aber das Publikum hat alle Altersklassen umfasst. Die Küche zum Selbstverpflegen mit Blick auf das Meer ist sehr schön.
Der Roadtrip mit den Yogis und Surfis war wundervoll. Vor allem das Essen bei einer älteren Dame war ein richtig guter Geheimtipp. Das Pflanzen des Baumes in einer wunderschönen grünen Umgebung hat das Wohlfühlprogramm richtig gut abgerundet. Die einstündige Massage war weltklasse und tat richtig gut. Mein Körper ist durch die täglichen Yoga-Einheiten doch an seine Grenzen gekommen und konnte während der Massage wieder richtig Kraft tanken.
Die Lage des Hostels und des Studios könnte besser nicht sein. Laura und ihre Crew haben sich gut um uns gekümmert, Fragen schnell beantwortet und den Urlaub einfach perfekt gemacht.
