    It was all well organized and the studio was very cute. The massage which came with the package was fantastic! I didnt stay with them so cannot say anything about the accommodation they offer.

    Laura was a great host and such a warm and friendly person. She helped a lot prior to my arrival and always took time to respond to my enquiries.

    Thank you for everything! Hope to see you all again!

    Just a small suggestion: The schedule for the yoga lessons could have been more consistent to plan your days around the lessons. Instead the times differed almost for every day. I didnt mind that very much as I didnt have many other plans but can imagine that others would also prefer fix timetables.

    The accommodation and all arrangements starting from the transfer from the airport to the excursions were extremely good. We were really well taken care of, and the people were awsome! Couldn't have been better.

    The yoga was quite demanding and could have been better adjusted to the levels of the participants. However, the teachers were extremely nice and very skillful yogis!

    Die Volonteers waren super, die Lehrer sehr gut und einfühlsam. Ich habe die ersten Yoga Erfahrungen gesammelt und denke das ich es weiter praktizieren werde. Der Standort für den Unterricht und die verschiedenen Möglichkeiten zu wohnen sind super. Die Aktivitäten sind abwechslungsreich und super organisiert. Man hat aber auch genug Zeit für sich. Eines meiner Highlights war der rooftop Unterricht und der Unterricht am Strand.

    Ich habe ein Apartment gebucht und das war für mich allein großzügig, sauber und sehr gut ausgestattet. Es hatte keine Klima, was nicht schlimm war. Es war in 2. Reihe zum Strand. Das einzige Manko war, dass es recht laut war durch die Restaurants unten Fenster und das Haus das gegenüber gebaut wurde.

    I was very impressed how well organised the included programs were. There was something to do together almost every day (two half-daytrips, curry night in the hostel, tapas night in the city centre, concert night), and the interns, especially Christin were very nice and helpful, taking us around and answering our questions. I was travelling solo so I found that very comforting. Laura's husband, Jordi was very nice too, he took us to one of the daytrips to see a very pretty plantation and some natural pools.

    The rooftop was a great place to do yoga on and the massage that was included in the package was professional and relaxing.

    I didn't actually meet Laura as she just had a baby but we were in touch via phone and she seemed to genuinely care about helping us have a good time.

    I also liked the authentic feel of the place: a lot of Spanish people live in Las Palmas, so being there felt a bit like living there, not being on a vacation there.

    Due to some administrative error I was given a smaller and simpler apartment than the one I had been informed earlier about to have. However, after three nights I was able to move to the apartment originally booked by me which was much better.

    The weather was much cloudier than I had expected before. The phenomenon even has a name, it is called "panza de burro". Also, the landscape was very dry, less pretty than I had expected before based on the pictures on the internet, but I was there in September, it is probably greener in the winter and in the spring. And of course, weather and landscape has nothing to do with SeeYoga :)

    Everyone I met through See Yoga were all very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed the yoga classes and Marta especially took time out to explain and correct the yoga postures which was very useful. I now feel more secure on how to carry on my yoga lessons at home. Everyone at the hostel were all really friendly, sociable and kept the house clean. Not always easy sleeping in a room with 12 people coming and going, so next time I´ll book a private room. The day trips were a lovely surprise and we all had a fantastic time hiking and visiting the vineyard and other great places north of the island.

    I´d love to come back, but I´ll book a private room next time as it was difficult to sleep in a room with people with other sleeping patterns.

    Everybody of the staff was very nice and very helpful, especially Paul and Bogna were great, well-organised and superfriendly. I totally enjoyed my stay in hitide hostel and can only recommend it.

    If you like an active holiday with plenty of time to relax, then this is something for you!

    The yoga lessons during the week where really good. Both teachers are flexible, kind and professional and provide you with all the help you need.

    I also really enjoyed the daytrip, hiking through the beautiful mountains of Cran Canaria. And I booked a massage in the salon. If you like a full body massage, then I recommend you to go there.

    The location of my apartment was next to the beach, overlooking the ocean! And everything you need is within walking distance.

    All in all a valuable and memorable experience!

    I stayed 2 weeks with See Yoga. Right from exchanging e-mails Laura and Julia were really helpful and welcoming. I had extra yoga lessons and during the weeks I changed some yoga lessons to surf lessons. Learned a lot with two different teachers! Tree planting was a huge plus and very awesome thing to do as an activity. Las Canteras is touristy, but safe and nice place to stay. Hostel could use new pillows, but otherwise it's clean and good place to stay.

    Big thank you to the interns Paul, Mathilde and Michelle for their help! And of course thanks to Laura, Jordi and Julia for making this one of the best holidays I've had! Namaste.

    My neighbors in the hostel, but that has nothing to do with SeeYoga :)

    We went on a week of Holiday with my two adult children ,19 yr old son and 23 yr old daughter . My children enjoyed the surf lessonsand the company. We all had a gala time with Marta teaching us yoga every morning. My husband who had no experience of yoga ,had loads of fun and enjoyed the yoga lessons . The trips arranged by Laura and her Husband were amazing. We all danced in the street concert,planted trees in the mountain, did yoga in the roof top and tasted the wine in the trips.Tasted the mouth watering authentic Spanish food available in the different restaurants close to our accomodation. The body message by Carol was excellent. Michelle and Yulia had always a welcoming smile which was infectious.

    The driver who picked us and dropped was very friendly. The tape's trip at night was a experinece in itself.

    The fact that the holiday had not only yoga and wellbeing but various other activities ,made this family holiday a life time experience. We will definitely visit again to try classes with Marta and message with Carol and more sunshine.

    Although the location and the sea view balcony of the was excellent. There was a funny smell outside the accomodation on the corridor which needs sorting out.

    Las libertad de tener bastante tiempo libre para organizarme a mi gusto,la distancia a pie de absolutamente todo,las sesiones redicidas de yoga en el estudio,la idea de plantsr un árbol como agradecimiento...¡fueron muchas cosas! La comida no la calificonporque corría por mi cuenta.

    Del apartamento esperaba algo más por el fonde de foto que salía en la web (no fotos del lugar en sí) aquí el precio no me parecía tan acorde. Aún así estaba a pie de playa y muy céntrico,vistas increibles. A veces del pat3io interior subía mal olor como a alcantarilla.No sé si tendría que ver con las mareas.

    This retreat was AMAZING: I enjoyed every single minute of it. The yoga teacher Martha was 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 planted a tree were also incredible! I could not stop smiling. This retreat totally is worth its price.

  • Tina Perez Atlanta

    My retreat at See Yoga Holiday 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. Visit See Yoga Holiday and you will not be disappointed! Namaste

  • Sabine Germany

    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 organized. 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 organizers 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.

  • Matilda Ekström Sundberg Sweden

    The Yoga retreat at Las Palmas, Gran Canaria was a very good recreation in a so beautiful environment. It´s not really a retreat - instead you go there and participate in different yoga sessions. You need some experience of yoga to feel comfortable in this week I think.

    Our spanish yoga leader Marta was great and the Italian leader too (don´t remember his name). But I think you can make it better with more connection between the yoga leaders, so that they both now what we did at last yoga class. Now it seemed to be no connection between the yoga leaders which was strange to me. Breakfast buffet after the yoga sessions would be included referred to the rather high price for the week (550 euro for the yoga sessions and a week in the apartment).

    The trip with Laura and the group to the mountains and the small waterfall was very beautiful, but it would be even better if you prepare your guests for the next trip to bring good shoes, waterbottle and a sunhat.

    We stayed in an nice apartment just on the beach promenade and the location is central and very close to the yogastudio. The only thing I missed was that the apartment would be even better if it´s included some cleaning during the week. Now it wasn't cleaned at all during the week and that is too little. We payed rather much and I think it´s reasonable that it should be at least one cleaning included during a whole week.

    It was a good retreat. Laura and company have made a good mix of yoga and pleasant leisure time.

    Just back from Gran Canaria where I thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful relaxing week of yoga with Laura and two lovely trips into the mountains with Laura and Jordi. Two great people who know how to look after their guests. Best of luck and success for the future to you both.

    My Yoga retreat in Gran Canaria was very very pleasant and well organized. Laura is very welcoming, available, flexible and smiling. We chose an apartment and the flat was very new, well equipped and close to the yoga place. The tour was also beautiful and interesting.

    My yoga retreat with See Yoga was simply wonderful. The yoga, hostel, excursions, weather, beach, shopping, restaurants, all meet and/or exceeded my expectations.

  • Fenella Dale

    BookYogaRetreats

    I would absolutely recommend See Yoga Holidays. Laura is a wonderful teacher - warm, welcoming and her classes were well balanced and catered for all needs. The beach location is stunning and the hostel, very clean with a friendly vibe. Canteras is not overrun with tourists but locals which makes it very special and neighboring town Las Palmas offers plenty of pottering, shopping and dining opportunities surrounded by traditional architecture. It should be noted however that this is not a retreat proper - it is not secluded or quiet but bustling and fun. If you're looking to get away from it all, the location may prove too lively.

  • Ash Kundi

    BookYogaRetreats

    Well the yoga retreat was great. Even though I booked it last minute, I am glad things turned out better than anticipated. Being on a couple retreats already that have been situated in remote locations, this one was slightly different in that it was situated alongside the hustle and bustle beach promenade. This was my first visit to Canaria Island and I was pleasantly surprised. From the location (you get use to it after a day), the sun, the people (so nice), the food (so much choice). Yoga was done on the rooftop of the surfers clubs and it was always a joy whether practicing on a morning or on an evening. It was great looking out to sea and listening to the lapping waves whilst I focused on my breathing, which helped me through the asanas. Laura is such a great teacher - such a gentle soul and a patient teacher. Laura will gently guide you and even assist you on anything that you may be struggling with. With the retreat you get a massage included (really relaxing), a day trip to a winery (I don't drink but the farm also grows coffee so you can try that - it was yum), a tree planting trip (nice little touch) and more. In your free time, you can do as much or as little as you like. I would highly recommend this retreat as you have nothing to loose but stress!

  • Barbara

    Laura is a fantastic yoga teacher and organiser. I thoroughly enjoyed the retreat and can recommend it full-heartedly. We did yoga on the rooftop with the sound of the sea in our ears - I will never forget this amazing experience. In Shavasana you gaze at the stars. I also really liked our trips and social evenings with the surfers. Laura is super helpful and absolutely lovely. The apartment I stayed in was great too, with a fully functioning kitchen. The retreat is super easy to get to: just fly, take bus 60 and walk for 10mns from Parque Santa Catalina to Paseo de Canteras. Would love to return one day!

  • Javi Spain

    I spent one week there and it was definitely a stunning experience. I mean going to the Canary Islands to hang out some days off is always appetizing, but this is much more than this. From the yoga sessions at the rooftop (with the quiet waves as a background music) to the additional entertained excursions, everything was well-prepared by Laura - the teacher - who works at full tilt to make you feel at ease. In a nutshell, if you want to seize your holidays to make a difference in your life, this option turns into a second to none choice.

  • Mareike Engel Germany

    My stay at See Yoga Holidays was simply perfect. Laura is a very good teacher and cares a lot about her guests. She made me feel comfortable although I was scared of traveling alone. The yoga classes at the rooftop with the ocean sound as a background were truly amazing and the day trip was wonderful. Thanks again! Hope to be back soon!

  • Zoe United Kingdom

    I travelled alone to see yoga. Laura who teaches a lot of the classes and runs see yoga was immensely helpful from the beginning. I had a lot of questions and she took the time to answer them before I had even booked. This holiday was great for me because even though I was a beginner the yoga classes were accessible for all. Laura was very welcoming to me and is a great teacher. Some of the yoga sessions are on the rooftop looking into the sea and the sunset. I chose to stay in an apartment because I am not a great sleeper! I had an apartment that over looked the sea. Las palmas is very safe. I had the option to go off and do things by myself in my spare time, but also some wonderful optional trips are organised with other people from the yoga and surf camp. I spent time on my own and time with others. A good balance. My yoga practice has improved. Laura is very attentive to all people participating. I would definitely do this again! Book it! Just go!

    Es war alles sehr gut organisiert, die Yoga Lehrer sind super ausgebildet und Jordi's Ausflüge haben ganz viel Spaß gemacht. Die Lage des Appartments ist traumhaft. Ich habe mich sehr gut erholt und werde diesen schönen Urlaub gerne weiter empfehlen.

  • Marie-Christin Köpke Germany

    Ich habe mit BookYogaRetreats (See Yoga) eine Woche auf Gran Canaria verbracht. Es war eine wunderbare Woche. Laura und ihr Team haben dafür gesorgt, dass man sich von Anfang an, also von der ersten Anfrage bis zum Abreisetag, gut aufgehoben und willkommen gefühlt hat. Sowohl die morgendlichen Yoga-Stunden als auch die zwei Yoga-Einheiten auf der Dachterasse waren wundervoll. Ich habe sehr viel Spaß gehabt und konnte an meiner Flexibilität arbeiten ohne mich unwohl zu fühlen. Der Kurs hat sowohl Einsteiger als auch Fortgeschrittene optimal abgedeckt. Untergebracht war ich im nahegelenden Surfhostel Las Palmas. Die Dachterasse dort ist ein Traum, die MitarbeiterInnen sehr freundlich und auch die Hostelgäste sind bunt gemischt. Viele wollten ihrem beruflichen Alltag für einen Augenblick entkommen. Natürlich waren einige in Feierlaune aber das Publikum hat alle Altersklassen umfasst. Die Küche zum Selbstverpflegen mit Blick auf das Meer ist sehr schön.

    Der Roadtrip mit den Yogis und Surfis war wundervoll. Vor allem das Essen bei einer älteren Dame war ein richtig guter Geheimtipp. Das Pflanzen des Baumes in einer wunderschönen grünen Umgebung hat das Wohlfühlprogramm richtig gut abgerundet. Die einstündige Massage war weltklasse und tat richtig gut. Mein Körper ist durch die täglichen Yoga-Einheiten doch an seine Grenzen gekommen und konnte während der Massage wieder richtig Kraft tanken.

    Die Lage des Hostels und des Studios könnte besser nicht sein. Laura und ihre Crew haben sich gut um uns gekümmert, Fragen schnell beantwortet und den Urlaub einfach perfekt gemacht.

    Danke dafür!

    Practicing yoga in See Yoga Holidays, especially in the beautiful setting of Las Palmas was amazing. I did classes both in the very serene and nurturing environment of the studio, and a couple of early morning sessions on the rooftop. The combination of Laura's calm voice together with the lapping waves of the ocean below was just heaven. Loved Laura's yoga style and lovely personality.

    Thanks to See Yoga I decided to come back again to do yoga. I still remember those moments of our sessions on the rooftop, looking at the sky and listening to the sound of the ocean. So pure and real. Miss it a lot while doing yoga at my hometown in gyms and other places and looking forward to be back again in Las Palmas and experience those amazing moments one more time! Thank you!
