      The best family yoga and surf holiday in Gran Canaria with Laura and Marta

      CONS Although the location and the sea view balcony of the was excellent. There was a funny smell outside the accomodation on the corridor which needs sorting out.

      PROS 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.

      Muy buen lugar para comenzar con yoga y dedicarse un tiempo a un@ mism@

      CONS Del apartamento esperaba algo más por el fonde de foto que salía en la web (no fotos del lugar en sí) aquí el precio no me parecía tan acorde. Aún así estaba a pie de playa y muy céntrico,vistas increibles. A veces del pat3io interior subía mal olor como a alcantarilla.No sé si tendría que ver con las mareas.

      PROS 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.

      "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."

      "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."

    • Review by Matilda Ekström Sundberg from Sweden

      "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."

      "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. "

    • Review by Ash Kundi

      "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."

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!"

    • Review by Zoe from Manchester, United Kingdom

      "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!"

    • Review by Marie-Christin Köpke from Hamburg, Germany

      "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."

      "Danke dafür!"

      "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."
