This retreat will take place in Fuerteventura, Canary Islands, Spain. Fuerteventura, literally translates into "strong fortune", is one of the most pristine islands of the Canary Islands. The pristine and pure qualities emanate from the sea breeze and gorgeous white beaches. Visiting Fuerteventura breathes new life into one's soul. Fuerteventura is the oldest of all of the Canary Islands, created by a 20-million year old volcanic eruption.
The island was once attached to Lanzarote, but erosion and time have severed the land connection. Today, their similar arid climates and picturesque sandy beaches show the bond that once was, and now, Lanzarote has become a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve protected site.
You will be served vegan or vegetarian brunch and dinners. You also may choose to have your dinner at nearby local restaurants.
There is plenty of time during the retreat to do different activities such as surfing, biking, hiking, private yoga session, or more. You can also go for a day trip to the nearby and beautiful island Lanzarote and a breathtaking nature reserve.
Additionally, you may sign up for various body therapies, such as an energizing and deeply transformative energy body feng shui session to purify your system and enhance your energy level which can be booked with Anouschka, or massage or treatments that can be booked at the retreat center.
