Program

Are you searching for more health, happiness, and vitality? This yoga retreat is suitable for all open-minded and adventurous individuals of all ages and all levels of yoga. Either you are traveling alone, with a partner, or a family, you are always welcome and will feel right at home.

This retreat is dedicated to your well-being, complementing the physical practice with meditation and whole food plant-based diet. Stayonmat's retreat center will ensure you personalized service and support you every step of the way to your transformation.

The yoga practice will be a perfect balance of gentle flow, Hatha, and Yin yoga practiced on a beautiful villa terrace overlooking the wild volcanic landscape of Fuerteventura.

Two meditation sessions are included in the program as well as movement meditation with a special focus on your personal health benefits, and workshops to learn about the benefits of a plant-based diet are also included. %The program includes three workshops - on intuitive eating and vegan cooking. You will learn how to prepare nutritious and delicious meals yourself, find out about the benefits of a vegan lifestyle, and learn how to optimally nourish your body on a whole plant-based diet.

The classes are a creative and gently-paced type of flow yoga which brings balance to your body and mind. The movements are linked to the breath and classes are started with a number of sun salutations to warm and prepare your bodies for more intense stretching done towards the end of the class. The practice is gentle yet invigorating with plenty of modifications suitable for all levels.

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with poses which are held for longer periods of time (5 minutes or more) and work on your ligaments, fascia, tendons, and even bones, improving energy flow through the meridians in your body.

Retreat location

This retreat will take place in a villa in Lajares, Spain. Lajares is a quaint and trendy little village nestled among the volcanoes of the north of Fuerteventura, on the way to the beaches of El Cotillo. Its main attraction is the Saturday's arts and crafts market. There are numerous cafes and restaurants you can choose from as well as a supermarket.

The abundance of sunny days, mild climate, endless sandy beaches, impressive sand dunes, and mysterious volcanic landscape make Fuerteventura one of the perfect holiday destinations and a paradise for water sports all year round.
