Our retreats are set in Casa Yogafriends, one of Fuerteventura´s most beautiful modern luxury villas with stunning architecture and a wonderful view over the volcano range of Lajares. Casa Yogafriends is situated in a quiet part of Lajares about a 5-10 minutes bike ride to the center of the village.
The village Lajares is a young, dinamic village with many restaurants and bars. By the locals it is lovingly called "Surfcity". The art gallery and artesian shops like jewlery, silk drawing, etc. reflects the interesting community of multicultural influence. Lajares is a melting pot for people from all over Europe and even further. The locals choose Lajares because it is laid back and right in the center so depending on the weather conditions you drive either 10 minutes east, west or north for the best beach option of the day.
We aim to delight your palate with world class vegetarian cuisine. All meals are lovingly prepared using mainly organic ingredients and locally grown produce. We cook with virgin olive oil. Complimentary fresh fruit, mineral water and herbal teas are available throughout the day.
If you are allergic to certain ingredients we will do our best to meet your requirements, provided that you advise us in advance. If you have dietary needs that require special ingredients, please bring those items with you.
Each day of the retreat will begin with a silent meditation followed by a longer morning Yoga class in which we do softening, hydrating and releasing practices as well as stabilizing and strengthening practices.
In the evenings we will focus on restorative Yoga practices as well as the deeply nourishing practice of Yoga Nidra.
We offer Hatha Yoga with a special emphasis for sportive active people to help regain flexibility, avoid injuries, shorter recover times, etc.
