It's Yoga Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Yoga)
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 being trained in the Afroyin method, to continue evolving and working from the dance, the body and its movement.

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.

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.

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.
Just back from Gran Canaria where I thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful relaxing week of yoga with Laura and two lovely trips into the mountains with Laura and Jordi. Two great people who know how to look after their guests. Best of luck and success for the future to you both.
My Yoga retreat in Gran Canaria was very very pleasant and well organized. Laura is very welcoming, available, flexible and smiling. We chose an apartment and the flat was very new, well equipped and close to the yoga place. The tour was also beautiful and interesting.

My yoga retreat with See Yoga was simply wonderful. The yoga, hostel, excursions, weather, beach, shopping, restaurants, all meet and/or exceeded my expectations.
I would absolutely recommend See Yoga Holidays. Laura is a wonderful teacher - warm, welcoming and her classes were well balanced and catered for all needs. The beach location is stunning and the hostel, very clean with a friendly vibe. Canteras is not overrun with tourists but locals which makes it very special and neighboring town Las Palmas offers plenty of pottering, shopping and dining opportunities surrounded by traditional architecture. It should be noted however that this is not a retreat proper - it is not secluded or quiet but bustling and fun. If you're looking to get away from it all, the location may prove too lively.
Well the yoga retreat was great. Even though I booked it last minute, I am glad things turned out better than anticipated. Being on a couple retreats already that have been situated in remote locations, this one was slightly different in that it was situated alongside the hustle and bustle beach promenade. This was my first visit to Canaria Island and I was pleasantly surprised. From the location (you get use to it after a day), the sun, the people (so nice), the food (so much choice). Yoga was done on the rooftop of the surfers clubs and it was always a joy whether practicing on a morning or on an evening. It was great looking out to sea and listening to the lapping waves whilst I focused on my breathing, which helped me through the asanas. Laura is such a great teacher - such a gentle soul and a patient teacher. Laura will gently guide you and even assist you on anything that you may be struggling with. With the retreat you get a massage included (really relaxing), a day trip to a winery (I don't drink but the farm also grows coffee so you can try that - it was yum), a tree planting trip (nice little touch) and more. In your free time, you can do as much or as little as you like. I would highly recommend this retreat as you have nothing to loose but stress!
Laura is a fantastic yoga teacher and organiser. I thoroughly enjoyed the retreat and can recommend it full-heartedly. We did yoga on the rooftop with the sound of the sea in our ears - I will never forget this amazing experience. In Shavasana you gaze at the stars. I also really liked our trips and social evenings with the surfers. Laura is super helpful and absolutely lovely. The apartment I stayed in was great too, with a fully functioning kitchen. The retreat is super easy to get to: just fly, take bus 60 and walk for 10mns from Parque Santa Catalina to Paseo de Canteras. Would love to return one day!
I spent one week there and it was definitely a stunning experience. I mean going to the Canary Islands to hang out some days off is always appetizing, but this is much more than this. From the yoga sessions at the rooftop (with the quiet waves as a background music) to the additional entertained excursions, everything was well-prepared by Laura - the teacher - who works at full tilt to make you feel at ease. In a nutshell, if you want to seize your holidays to make a difference in your life, this option turns into a second to none choice.

My stay at See Yoga Holidays was simply perfect. Laura is a very good teacher and cares a lot about her guests. She made me feel comfortable although I was scared of traveling alone. The yoga classes at the rooftop with the ocean sound as a background were truly amazing and the day trip was wonderful. Thanks again! Hope to be back soon!

I travelled alone to see yoga. Laura who teaches a lot of the classes and runs see yoga was immensely helpful from the beginning. I had a lot of questions and she took the time to answer them before I had even booked. This holiday was great for me because even though I was a beginner the yoga classes were accessible for all. Laura was very welcoming to me and is a great teacher. Some of the yoga sessions are on the rooftop looking into the sea and the sunset. I chose to stay in an apartment because I am not a great sleeper! I had an apartment that over looked the sea. Las palmas is very safe. I had the option to go off and do things by myself in my spare time, but also some wonderful optional trips are organised with other people from the yoga and surf camp. I spent time on my own and time with others. A good balance. My yoga practice has improved. Laura is very attentive to all people participating. I would definitely do this again! Book it! Just go!

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.

Practicing yoga in See Yoga Holidays, especially in the beautiful setting of Las Palmas was amazing. I did classes both in the very serene and nurturing environment of the studio, and a couple of early morning sessions on the rooftop. The combination of Laura's calm voice together with the lapping waves of the ocean below was just heaven. Loved Laura's yoga style and lovely personality.

Yoga with Laura in See Yoga makes you feel like home. It is a comfortable journey you understand. I'm definitely repeating the experience ASAP! Thanks.

Thanks to See Yoga I decided to come back again to do yoga. I still remember those moments of our sessions on the rooftop, looking at the sky and listening to the sound of the ocean. So pure and real. Miss it a lot while doing yoga at my hometown in gyms and other places and looking forward to be back again in Las Palmas and experience those amazing moments one more time! Thank you!

Yoga is not about being flexible in a sexy outfit - it's about connecting yourself by living and being the context in a mental & physical way and that is what I've found in See Yoga classes! Thank you so much, Laura.
