In a world often driven by the things we do and defined by what we achieve it is easy to lose sight of what our hearts truly desire and of our essence.
This retreat is an invitation to return and look within using the tradition of yin yoga where we explore the layers of our being by holding poses for a while (1 to 10mins) so that we can move beyond the physical realm and its discomforts. Stepping away from the doing into being.
Combined with the chakra meditations we can begin a process of observing and healing at an energetic level and let our true self shine.
This will be supported by the beautiful surroundings of Fuerteventura in the midst of volcanoes and the soothing energy of the ocean.
I am a E-RYT200 and E-RYT500 and an It's Yoga International teacher trainer with over 1000hrs of training in a diverse range of yoga styles: Hatha, Bikram yoga ,Vinyasa Flow, Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, Yin and The Rocket®.
I started my practice with Vinyasa and, over the years that followed, I explored many paths in the practice of Yoga through asanas and anatomy, pranayama, meditation and the study of its philosophy. I have shared my knowledge in busy studios settings as well as smaller spaces, private classes, workshops, retreats and teacher trainings. I strive to learn more; I love all forms of yoga and find that they all complement each other to help create harmony within and around me as well as the people around me.
I continuously look for new ways to learn through my practice, workshops and trainings; I believe constant training and practice is the key to being a giving, compassionate and enthusiastic teacher.
My classes have an emphasis on alignment and focus on breath, offering hands-on adjustments when needed, to provide a safe environment and to encourage students to steadily develop their practice by cultivating self-awareness and acceptance.
We will begin each day with the yin practices, each designed to awaken the meridians related to its respective chakra which will then be further explored in the evening meditation. Seven days retreat with each day focused on a different chakra moving from the base of the spine to the crown. The meals will be also dedicated to chakras, especially the dinners that will offer special colourful soups fo different chakras.
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.
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, trekking 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.
Fuerteventura is one of the 7 Canary islands, in the Atlantic ocean and often described as the ‘Hawaii of Europe’. Characterised by volcanic origins, contrasting landscapes and mild climate,Fuerteventura is a low-lying island with desert-like & volcanic landscapes; coastal dune formations, over 150 km of pristine beaches and stunning water clarity. A top destination for water sports, beach lovers, trekkers and yogis.
