About Kundalini Yoga
Kundalini Yoga is a journey, that connects you with your deepest self, with your soul. Its a powerful pathway that helps us to be unique and to improve the quality of our lives.
This retreat will transform your life, it will bring healing, awareness, a deep sense of vitality and confidence into our lives, and allows us to overcome challenges.
Kundalini yoga is an extremely intelligent yoga system which helps you increase strength, and builds vitality. It also helps you connect with your higher purpose, and improves mental clarity.
Allow your vitality to emerge as your body gains balance and harmony during this retreat week. Whatever your level, this is an opportunity to awaken your enthusiasm, move, and be happy and free.
Kundalini Yoga is called the Yoga of Awareness. It is the householder’s yoga—for people who are active in the world. It is a dynamic, powerful tool that is designed to give you an experience of your soul.
Kundalini Yoga works to strengthen and balance the nervous system. When your nervous system is weak, you are susceptible to unhealthy reactions to stress.
During a Kundalini Yoga kriya and the deep relaxation that follows it, all the nerve endings in the body are given a tune-up. You experience a deep rejuvenating state of total relaxation where healing can take place. Regular practice gives you extra stamina and resilience in the face of everyday stress.
Kundalini Yoga gives you an experience of who you are when the grip of ego is released. It allows the depth of the soul to be felt and known. Begin to access your truth and create a strong connection to your soul and your soul’s work in this lifetime.
About Yin Yoga
Its the passive Yoga (what doesn’t mean relaxing) and this practice unwinds tensión in the body to bring long lasting relief and health to the body’s “invisible half”. Yin Yoga is not meant to be comfortable, it will take you well outside your comfort zone. Much of the benefit of this practice will come from staying in this zone of discomfort, despite the minds urgent pleas to leave. As long as we are not experiencing pain, we remain.
With a flow and steady approach, Yin Yoga uses floor poses held in stillness, allowing these passive, long holds to strengthen and hydrate joint tissues. Yin exercise targets the body’s connective tissues, including the ligaments, bones, cartilage, tendons, myofascia, all components of flexibility, mobility, strength and structure. Yin Yoga is the perfect counterbalance to our Yang oriented lifestyle. The deeper physical work of Yin Yoga practice, combined with compassionate contemplation, can help to reléase unsettled and disruptive patterns and promote freedom and wellbeing in body, heart and mind.
“We dont use our body to get into a pose, we use the pose to get into our body “ (Bernie Clark)

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, 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.
