Description

Join us for an amazing yoga holiday in beautiful Tenerife, the island of eternal spring. Enjoy yoga practise out in the open air in beautiful natural surroundings at 1,000 meters above sea level, as well as hiking trips in the dramatic mountain scenery. The holiday consists of morning and evening yoga sessions for improving your well-being, held at the peaceful and idyllic village of Santiago del Teide. We have included three hiking trips to some of the most beautiful places in Tenerife, where you can get to know the island’s nature and history and experience the soothing power of nature. 

Yoga days consist of awakening, energizing and dynamic exercises in the morning as well as grounding, gentle exercises and meditation in the evening. Exercises are tailored to the level of the participants and are therefore suitable to everyone from beginners to more experienced yoga lovers. All the classes are taught by an experienced personal trainer and yoga instructor, who will also be able to instruct you in holistic well-being and health during the body & mind workshops held during the week. Throughout the week, you will learn more about healthy nutrition, have meals prepared from fresh produce and even collect ingredients for your meals directly from the hotel’s own garden.

You will return from your holiday well-rested and energized, with resources for maintaining your well-being in your everyday life.

Along the way your guide will share insight into the area’s history, culture, climate and terrain. After a moderate ascent, stop at the Cruz de Gala viewpoint for panoramic views over the valley of Santiago del Teide Teide’s peak in the distance. Continue along the mountain ridge towards Cumbre de Masca and enjoy stunning views all the way down to the South Coast and the ocean. When the weather is good you will be able to spot the neighbouring islands of La Gomera and La Palma, and on a very clear day even the smallest of the Canary Islands, El Hierro. You will discover diverse vegetation from pine and eucalyptus trees to ancient laurisilva forests and Canarian palm trees.
