Description

Christmas Yoga Holiday in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria 20th – 27th December

Join us for our Christmas yoga holiday in Las Palmas, a place known for its all year long summer, right in the beach promenade of la Playa de Las Canteras, a 12 kilometers beach which is considered one of the best urban beaches in Europe.

The Canary Islands are known for their eternal summer weather, so you can enjoy your holidays at the beach all year long. We want to give you the opportunity to let yoga be your daily companion, merge into the Canarian lifestyle, meet new people, connect to nature and have a time for yourself.

An invitation to leave your “musts” behind and just live your holiday as you please. We want to give you what we love, so we offer you daily yoga classes and all sort of activities to discover Gran Canaria, experience something new or simply relax and chill.

Your non yogi partner will also have its place and you will be able to enjoy both your yoga practice and the pleasure of sharing. Because we believe that above all, the best way to be healthy is to be happy.

The neighborhood where we are located is very quiet, secure and warm, so you can have all the facilities of being in a city, but in a soft and calm atmosphere. Las Palmas is a charming city which still keeps its Latin American colonial influences, making it colorful, joyful and kind.

It also has a lot of different kind of nice restaurants where you will be able to eat all sorts of food from all over the world. Our cute yoga studio is from 5 to 10 minutes walk from all our accommodations as it is the rooftop where we teach some of our lessons.

Yoga

On our yoga holidays in Las Palmas all levels and reasons for practicing yoga are more than welcome. During the classes, you will always be encouraged to listen to your body and let it be your guide.

We will suggest you all sorts of modifications that will help you to build up your own practice and deepen into it. Classes will naturally change from one yoga style to other (Vinyasa flow, Hatha, Yin, Kundalini) depending of the time of the day and the energy of the group.

Imagine breathing while enjoying of the ocean breeze and a beautiful sunset!. Indoor and outdoor yoga practices will be combined.

Teachers

All our teachers are qualified by the Yoga Alliance and have wide experience in other fields (reiki, alternative therapies, art, dance, meditation).

Laura Serrano de Pedro
Yoga Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Yoga)
Laura was initiated in the first and second level of Reiki Usui to start exploring with the movement of energy throughout the body. When she first tried yoga in 2006, she finally found the serenity she needed in her everyday life. Laura decided to be a Certified Yoga Teacher (Yoga Alliance, RYT 200) to start giving something in return to what yoga gave her. That gentle way to enjoy the present moment, awaken your body, calm your mind, and delightfully listen. Nowadays, she is being trained in the Afroyin method, to continue evolving and working with the body and its movement.

Marta Alegre
Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Yoga)
After studying and working for 12 years in the fashion industry, in January 2014 Marta quit her job and travelled around Central America. She was tired of the industry and needed a break to find balance again and go back to her own essence. That was when she started to connect with the yoga’s philosophy and ended living in an ashram of Sivananda lineage in the Bahamas for a few months. It was in the ashram where she decided to deepen her practice and do her Teacher Training. She teaches Vinyasa, Hatha and Yin Yoga combined with sound relaxation techniques and meditation.

What past guests have said

“This retreat was AMAZING: I enjoyed every single minute of it. The yoga teachers Martha and Laura were one of the best, always smiling, giving perfect instructions and challenges for beginners but also for more advanced yogis. The day trip, the massage and planting a tree were also incredible! I could not stop smiling. This retreat totally is worth its price”.

“The retreat was an amazing experience! Our teacher, Marta, is an excellent instructor with lots of great energy. Laura, the program coordinator, is an absolutely beautiful soul! My apartment accommodation was comfortable and convenient for access to everything! And our trips to the other parts of the island made great vacation memories. Namaste”.

“I had a real great stay in Las Palmas. I enjoyed the yoga classes taught by Martha very much. The holiday week was very well organised. You met the yogis and also some surf people at the excursion to El Risco where we made a walk to a little waterfall and afterwards we visited Puerto de las Nieves joined by the organisers Laura and her husband. Both of them are really very nice and take care of everything so that everybody feels comfortable. The planting tree tour to a farm near Teror was amazing as well, so we helped to regrow the Canarian forest. I liked the mixture of having free time to go to the beach or somewhere else and doing yoga or making the tours. I would recommend this Yoga retreat to everybody”.
