The villa is situated in some of the most spectacular scenery in the north of the island, far from the hustle and bustle of city life.

The room allocation is arranged based on a first-come-first-serve basis.
After a morning tea, each day of the retreat will start with a longer morning yoga class in which we do softening, hydrating, and releasing practices, as well as stabilizing and strengthening practices.
In the evenings you will focus on restorative Yoga practices as well as the deeply nourishing practice of Yoga Nidra in one of the evening sessions. %Yogafriends Fuerteventura offers Hatha Yoga with a special emphasis for active people to help regain flexibility, avoid injuries, shorter recovery times, etc.
You will be taken on a two hiking tours. The first one climbing on the top of the crater of a close by Volcano for great views and situating yourself with a great view to Lobos Island and Lanzarote. A second hiking tour will most likely be led to the close by West coast of Fuerteventura and lead you along the rough and rugged western cliff line to some spectacular views.
