The Concept

Fall Equinox represents balance, a time of equal amounts of day and night. In this retreat we will integrate balance through equal amounts of activity and rest, solar and lunar practices. It is also a transitional time, moving from the high energy of the summer towards the introspective qualities of Fall. We will welcome this introspection by combining yoga and meditation practices along with the art of mantra (japa meditation, rhythmic repetition of sacred sounds), helping us to delve deeper into the symbolism of the practice. Mantra is also a transformative practice with the power to purify our minds and hearts.

There will be opportunities to connect with Nature.

Your host

Frauke Behrens and Elena Benedi have been doing yoga retreats and classes together for several years and combine 20 years of yoga experience. For them the essence of the practice is about open heartedness, the experience of beauty and a way to connect with your soul. The retreat experience will be grounding and authentic but sprinkled with passion, fun and laughter. 

The practices

In this retreat we will incorporate a variety of yoga styles (hatha, vinyasa, kundalini, yin, restorative), meditation, yoga nidra, mantra and opportunities for self-reflection.

The Yoga Yurt

It’s a circular space containing a very special energy inside. It is nestled in the garden, surrounded by trees and the stunning presence of the volcano. At the entrance you will find a chill-out area were you can experience the peacefulness of the place after your practice.

 

Yogasana House

The house is nestled right under the volcano “El Calderon Hondo” in the surf village of Lajares in the north of Fuerteventura. The village (easy 15 min walk) offers a few restaurants, cafes, bars and shops, and on Saturdays it becomes a local market for arts and crafts. From the house you have direct access to running, treking and mountain bike paths around the volcano.  

The house is very spacious and modern, but still, it retains elements of classical Canarian building and every corner is dedicated to the well-being of our guests, including a beautiful green Patio garden with palm, banana trees and an herbal garden.

The swimming-pool is solar heated (temperature ranges from 21C in winter to 26C in summer).

Each room has a bathroom, private lounge área with a hammock, free wi-fi, and many of them with a kitchenette. Linens, towels (beach and bath), hairdryer and soaps are included. Washing machine is available.
