Christmas Yoga Retreat in Sunny Lanzarote
Escape for some winter sun and join me on this beautiful Island in the Canaries and take in all the natural beauty, whilst doing a daily practice of yoga, meditation and relaxation
This Retreat is an inspiring and tranquil haven in the unspoilt countryside of La Geria Natural Park. Surrounded by vineyards and mountains which run into sandy beaches, makes it the perfect place to leave behind the christmas rush, switch off, unwind and recharge your body & mind. Lanzarote is the easternmost island of the Spanish archipelago. Its around 125 km off the coast of Africa, meaning the weather is glorious most of the year, where the sun shines with clear blue sky’s. During the month of December, you’ll get average highs of 22°C during the hottest part of the day.
My retreats attract every level of practitioner. I always have a mixture of people attending. I can cater for beginners to advanced. The style of yoga varies too as I’ve trained in quite a few disciplines, such as sivananda ( hatha style ) and ashtanga. I really work with the feel of the group and meet the needs and requirements of my class participants in that moment, adapting with modifications or more challenging versions of the postures for those who want the option.
There will be morning yoga classes and evening guided mindfulness meditation, pranayama ( ancient yogic breathing techniques ) and relaxation sessions ( yoga nidra ) except on arrival and departure days (20th & 27th). The villa has a peaceful space to practice our yoga sessions. You can choose whether you wish to participate in all the classes. Yoga mats are provided.

The lava caves, Cuevas de los Verdes, the green lake in El Golfo.
