perfect combination of Yoga and Windsurfing, Eline and Martin took care of everything and welcomed me very warm and gentle. Surfers Retreat offered a good breakfast and a lovely furnitured and clean room with a large terrace and view.
Even when I skipped surfclasses one day I got more Yoga lessons for free...Book and enjoy :)

"Amazing week of yoga and watersports"
Eline gave awesome yoga classes on the beach. So lovely to listen to the waves whilst doing yoga. Also flexible waterspouts activities. There wasn't much wind, so Eline arranged for me to surf instead, which was awesome.

"Beste vakantie ooit"
Een heerlijke, goed georganiseerde, en relaxte vakantie gehad!
Zeker met de hele covid-19 situatie, hebben Eline en Martin een super toffe week neer weten te zetten.
Voor mij was dit de eerste keer windsurfen en de eerste keer yoga, en ik heb van allebei een helder beeld gekregen en zal ook zeker door blijven gaan met beide😄
Het hostel was een super fijne en relaxte plek, waar ruimte was voor iedereen en waar echt een groep is ontstaan met leuke nieuwe contacten.
Ik hoop zo snel mogelijk weer terug te zijn😊

"Surfen fijn, samenstelling van het totale pakket matig"
De dagelijkse surftrips waren relaxed, voldoende tijd en aandacht en zeer veel geleerd! De yoga-klassen ook fijn, toegankelijk en op een bijzondere plek.
from Netherlands, August 2019
Het was een heerlijke vakantie waarin op een zeer fijne wijze afgestemd werd met elkaar rondom de tijden van de yoga en de windsurf. De yogalessen op het strand waren heel erg goed en ook heel kundig gericht op de lichaamsdelen die door het windsurfen ook wat aandacht nodig hadden. Eline stemde heel fijn af op ieder zijn behoefte.
Het windsurfen was leuk in de Lagun, waarbij zowel voor beginners als voor gevorderden ruimte is om aan hun behoeften te voldoen.
Lajares is een heerlijk klein dorp waar van alles precies genoeg is, naast mooie boetiekjes en surfwinkels ook lekkere restaurantjes, goede koffie en overheerlijke taartjes.
Eline, dank voor deze fijne vakantie en afstemming in alles!!

Eline is an amazing yoga teacher: very caring, she gives great personalized yoga advice. Her yoga classes are great, she adapts them to match everyone's needs. She has a deep voice that is both relaxing and compelling, she pushes you always a bit further in the postures yet pays great attention to each body's limits so that no one risks injury. She is also super helful during the stay: always available and happy to give advice and recommendations so that everyone can make the best of his/her free time depending on their needs and wishes. Overall day-to-day planning of classes is handled by Eline in a very flexible manner, sometimes a bit last minute but everything ALWAYS falls into place so just relax. Windsurf classes with Yannick were truly wonderful: he is passionate about windsurf, gives a million explanations that are super clear and adapts navigation to the student's progress day after day

"Wonderful yoga and fitness holiday!"
I've recently returned home feeling so happy and fulfilled after the most wonderful yoga and fitness holiday. Everything was perfectly organised by Eline who is easily one of the best yoga instructors I have ever been fortunate enough to practice with. My holiday also included a really good windsurfing lesson and a private workout session with an excellent fitness instructor who is also an experienced physiotherapist.
Each day began with an energising powerful morning yoga session with lovely, calming Chasa and the afternoon sessions were with Eline. These afternoon sessions were especially amazing. Eline’s knowledge of yoga is more than extensive and so is her understanding of the human body. She often took the time to explain how our joints, muscles and ligaments are affected by each movement and pose. Sometimes Eline seemed to have X-ray vision enabling her to see immediately how my positioning or alignment needed adjusting. I have been practicing yoga for a good few years but with Eline I’ve gained a far deeper understanding of my body and how to improve my yoga practice from now on.
What I also loved about Eline’s sessions was her sense of humour. Little things she’d say would get us laughing and relax into poses even more.
Accommodation was good too - I choose the cheaper dorm option which was fine - all quite clean and tidy though I didn't appreciate the firm 10am checkout on my last day.
I’m really looking forward to returning the FV to enjoy it all again!

It was just beautiful. Doing yoga at the beach every morning and every afternoon was so good for my mind and my body. Eline is one of the best yoga teachers I've met! I start missing her a lot. She gave so much of her time for each lesson. She was concerned and mindful about each participant. I progressed a lot in that week. Thank you for this. I'll keep you in my mind.

"Amazing and so worth it!"
The classes were brilliant, very personalized and designed to give each student what they felt they needed day by day. Small class sizes made this possible and enabled a bond within the group which continued outside the class. The group dinner mid week was a lovely way for everyone to spend time together and really get yo know one another also.
The teacher was really centered and relaxed at the same time ensuring quality classes in a relaxed and lighted hearted atmosphere. The mindfulness incorporated into the classes was very benifical to both of us in different ways and is something we have now found ourselves practicing throughout our regular days.
The surf house, La Cometa, which we stayed in was beautiful and in a great location. The house also added to the atmosphere of the trip and provided a great place for meeting people and relaxing. The full kitchen meant cooking was easy and going out to eat every meal was not necessary.
Having a car also added to our trip, not that we used it in corrlejo, but it allowed us to explore the island between classes and was very cheap compared to most countries!

This was one of the best holidays of my life. Fuertaventura is my kind of place. I felt so at ease and alive on this island. Doing yoga on the beach everyday is the best therapy I could ask for with the beautiful ocean and refreshing breeze under the canary sunshine in early January ☀️ 👌
From the very first contact with Eline I felt taken care of and welcome. She has a very relaxed yet professional approach and you know that everything is taken care of and that she has prepared the best possible holiday for you. I really enjoyed the freedom of having my own time to enjoy my holiday outside of the yoga classes and get a real taste for life in corralejo.
The yoga itself was really great. It challenged my body in just the right amount to deepen and expand my body. Eline took particular care to the needs of my body in each class which is something I have never experienced before. She was somehow able to create the class to accommodate everyone's needs. I felt totally refreshed and recharged after this holiday. I will definitely be back for more... Thank you so much Eline and Martin for such an amazing start to 2019 🎆☀️☀️

"Yoga balance in the sun overcoming wind and late nights"
It was great. Eline clearly adapts class to those present. People progress. She incorporates everyone into what she plans for the day and adjusts accordingly unlike many who tend to be more set in their pre-class planning. She organised extra bits for us as well which were grand and made for a nice Christmas fun but productive yoga holiday. Friends are already asking about going again next year. Least stressful Christmas ever. Well worth it.
Windsurfing with Martin was also grand. He even came to work when unwell- commitment is clearly there. He is a good instructor. Gave us individualized attention.

"Yoga at the windy beach of Fuerteventura"
I just had a great yoga holiday at WindSurfYoga. We were few, so Eline –the yoga teacher-had time to give valuable tailor made personal instruction to each of us. I am now able to practice yoga in a better way, since I now know what the aim of each position is, and what to focus on. Before I was not really sure and had a tendency to just go through the motion

"Merci pour cette belle bouffée d'air"
Un grand merci à Eline et Yann qui ont été des professeurs fantastiques: compétents, attentifs, attentionnés, motivants, exigeants, efficaces et bienveillants :-)
L'emplacement de la maison étant aussi au top, et la déco et la propreté impeccables

"Een nieuwe wereld"
Met de juiste mindset kan je de vakantie van je leven hebben !
Fuerteventura betekent "sterke wind" maar verwacht niet dat alles voor niks aan komt waaien.
Je moet er wel iets voor doen... en voor laten.

"Perfect sunny and sporty island getaway"
I absolutely enjoyed every minute of my holiday. I stayed in the amazing villa next to the sea with a hottub and a dozen of lovely, open, and sporty people. Every day we had yoga on the beach just in front, with Eline as a warm, down to earth, very skilled teacher. She was able to arrange a tailored mix of yoga, surfing, workouts for me in my final weeks of marathon preparation. I had a blast meeting new people again, firing up my body and mind, and being on an island for sun, salt, and sweat - just what I love.
from Austria, February 2019
I had a wonderful week with classes in Yoga and Fitness. Both, Eline and Yan, did an excellent job. They adjusted the program to my individual needs. I really felt that I am in good hands and can definitely apply what I have learned at home.
I would love to come back someday!! Thanks so much!

Eline ist super, geht auf jeden Kursteilnehmer individuell ein und ist dabei humorvoll und entspannt! Hilft bei allen Fragen weiter und gibt Tipps für die Insel.
Die Unterkunft war sehr sauber, angenehm klein und hervorragend ausgestattet. Roberto macht einen guten Job!

"Just an awesome retreat"
At the beginning I did not expect nothing, I just need it to do a retreat but just the first day I felt so good energies, awesome environment and beautiful souls.
Eline is really cool and is flexible at all levels! I would repeat this experience again and again.

"Fantastic personal and small group experience"
Eline cares very very personal about your belongings. Due to her baby she can't provide her house for accommodation but organises everything excellent to allow you a very awesome stay. For people looking for small group sessions and an individual travel it is perfect as you can put different activities (fitness, windsurf, and lots things you can add yourself etc etc) together and decide where you like to stay (quiete place, single room, surf hostel,...). Finally, I enjoyed yoga a lot and could recover and reenergise. I will never forget that holiday.
