During this retreat, you will be staying in a rustic Canarian villa where the traditional atmosphere meets modern convenience. The spacious four-bedroom villa has a pool overlooking the dreamy volcanic landscape and the amazing sunrise and sunset views.

The bedrooms spread on one level around a courtyard. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and you can choose from a shared twin with shared bathroom, single en-suite, or a double en-suite with exit to the pool area.

On this retreat, yoga classes are a perfect balance of gentle flow, Hatha, and Yin yoga practiced on a beautiful villa terrace overlooking the wild volcanic landscape of Fuerteventura.

The classes are a creative and gently paced type of flow yoga that brings balance to your body and mind. The movements are linked to the breath and classes are started with a number of sun salutations to warm and prepare your bodies for more intense stretching done towards the end of the class.

The practice is gentle yet invigorating, with plenty of modifications suitable for all levels. Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with poses that are held for longer periods of time (five minutes or more) and work on your ligaments, fascia, tendons, and even bones, improving energy flow through the meridians in your body.

This retreat is suitable for all open-minded and adventurous individuals of all ages. Either you are traveling alone, with a partner or a family, you are always welcome and will feel right at home.

This retreat will take place in Lajares, a quaint and trendy little village nestled among the volcanoes of the north of Fuerteventura, on the way to the pristine beaches of El Cotillo and bustling town of Corralejo. It offers an ideal setting for those looking to spend peaceful days in nature and supportive environment.

The abundance of sunny days, mild climate, endless sandy beaches, impressive sand dunes, and mysterious volcanic landscape make Fuerteventura one of the perfect holiday destinations and a paradise for water sports all year round.

The island was declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO and will amaze you with more than 100 kilometers of untouched coastline. One of Lajares’ attractions is the Saturday’s arts and crafts market. There are numerous cafes and restaurants you can choose from, as well as a supermarket.

During this holiday, you will prepare together hearty, nourishing, and balanced vegan meals, all conscientiously designed and locally sourced (when possible). The kitchen is inspired by world cuisine, from Indian to Spanish and Moroccan.

Stayonmat loves creamy curries, roasted sweet potatoes, heaps of fresh and colorful salads, quinoa tabbouleh, avocado, and chickpeas in every form. To end meals on a sweet note, be prepared to learn new recipes for tantalizing raw vegan desserts. Breakfasts include fresh fruits, oatmeal, vibrant smoothies, pastries, preserves, and herbal teas.
