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.

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.

    "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!"

    "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."

    "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."
