About This Event
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 mindfulness.
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. It’s 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. In December, you’ll get average highs of 22°C during the hottest part of the day.
Yoga, Meditation & Relaxation
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.
My retreat welcomes all levels of practitioners!
"Reinvigorating yoga in a peaceful setting" It was a wonderful experience! I am pleased to say that Ladan's yoga sessions during the retreat were exactly what I needed, and I now view yoga as an essential part of my life - something I need to do to help keep me balanced and secure in myself. I had attended yoga classes for most of 2018 leading up to the retreat, which was good in and of itself, but it also meant that I was able to get more from Ladan's classes than if I had been an absolute beginner. However, I learnt more from her in the space of a week than I had learnt over the whole year! My understanding of my body has improved and deepened hugely, and, for me, the mind-body links and meditative practices that she is so clear about, make absolute sense. I enjoyed and found useful the breathwork, and I am very grateful to her for correcting me in some of the postures. All in all the experience has been quite a profound one for me, and is definitely influencing how I live and work - in very positive ways! The retreat house was lovely - especially the peaceful location away from all the crowds - and the food was absolutely delicious. What a treat over the Christmas holiday.
- Each morning, you’ll start the day with a Yoga class followed by a healthy, vegetarian brunch using locally, produced organic food, prepared by one of the Islands top chefs. All dietary requirements can be catered for.
- The evening sessions will be varied such as Yin Yoga, Yoga nidra, breath work ( pranayama ), guided meditation, sound healing and a yoga workshop for core strength and back care, then you can enjoy a delicious dinner.
- There will be plenty of time between the morning and evening sessions to explore the wonders of this Island and learn about the history. Alternatively you can stay at the Villa and take a relaxing massage or peacefully read a book by the solar panel, heated swimming pool.
