"Wonderful trip"

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!

"Guter Urlaub"

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.

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.

"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.

"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!

"Great way to practice yoga in Gran Canaria "

The class sizes - not too big - and locations for classes. Everything was well organised, opportunities for socialising too.

Hostel is located just by the beach. Laura & Jordie put their hearts into the business they run and that’s why it all works so well!

The accommodation and all arrangements starting from the transfer from the airport to the excursions were extremely good. We were really well taken care of, and the people were awsome! Couldn't have been better.

"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.

"Flexiable holiday"

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.

"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.

"The perfect holiday "

Everything was really good organized, the communication was really good and the yoga lessons were perfect, the group was not too big so that makes it really personal, the teachers (Martha and Laura) take good care of us and give a good support during the lessons. Also the day trip was lovely and we saw some beautyfull places around the island! It’s the perfect holiday when you decide to travel by yourself or with a friend!

"Great yoga lessons in very cute studio. "

It was all well organized and the studio was very cute. The massage which came with the package was fantastic! I didnt stay with them so cannot say anything about the accommodation they offer.

Laura was a great host and such a warm and friendly person. She helped a lot prior to my arrival and always took time to respond to my enquiries.

Thank you for everything! Hope to see you all again!

"Jederzeit wieder "

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!

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.
