Gran Canaria Retreat

April 27th - May 2nd 2020

FITNESS | YOGA | DETOX

Welcome to Yogalife’s fitness, yoga and detox retreat; the perfect combination of yoga and group PT sessions that are designed to compliment each other and create the best version of you!

The fun, fitness sessions will promote strength, endurance and fat loss, while the magic of yoga will enhance determination, flexibility, focus and of course that all important peaceful, calm mind.

We then seamlessly tie these two elements together with our nutritionally balanced, delicious, plant based meals. The best bit is all of this takes place in our private eco-biosphere reserve in Gran Canaria, where beach and mountain hold hands, 10 kilometres away from the nearest village, but only a 100 metres from our secret beach…

Allow Yogalife to take care of you; you deserve it!

Bespoke

We will look at each individual’s physical and wellbeing goals, measure where you are now and from that information we will design your diet guidelines, exercise program, yoga and beach sessions to ensure rapid, effective results.

Intimate

Our private eco-retreat is set in 10,000 sq metres of vibrant colour with palm trees, hammocks and little mediation spots everywhere. All the cabins are en-suite with single and twin occupancy available, we even have two converted cave rooms (please ask about availability). Whether you are a seasoned athlete/yogi or a complete beginner we will take care of you and make sure you are working at your pace. The Yogalife goody bags will be filled with supplements, aromatherapy candles, oils and bath salts that are designed to sooth sore muscles and help you relax

Energising

Our food will be prepared fresh every day and will be mainly plant based, we guarantee it will be delicious and nutritious, yet perfectly balanced for energy, health and detoxification. Produced on site are organic coffee beans and honey that is produced by stingless black bees that are not found anywhere else in the world, and cactuses that are filled with antioxidants, and therefore make the perfect juices!

Dynamic

We will use a wide variety of the latest training, yoga and meditation techniques such as HIIT training, circuits, primal movement, cross-fit, boxing, straight sets, high reps, hill runs, slow runs, beach training and all the variations of yoga; slow flow, vinyasa, power, rocket, along with deep mediation and breathing techniques.

Your Experience

Our main aim of all the Yogalife life changing retreats is to bring amazing people together to some of the most unique and beautiful venues around the world and try to change lives! We do this in a number of ways, using the power of yoga and the chakra system, fueling the body with healthy, detoxifying foods and supplements, using the latest training methods and hormone response science, then add to that, vitamin D from the sunshine, the sound of the ocean, beautiful views, great company and lots of rest and rejuvenation!

A day in the life of

Our morning begins as the sun rises & we greet the day with a superfood shot and Yogalife’s take on traditional Kriya yoga to clear the sinuses and awaken the body. This is then quickly followed with a sun salutation warm up, readying you for one of our training sessions designed to super charge the body and burn fat FAST! We finish the session with yoga to help stretch, repair and re-focus the body and mind. After a quick freshen up with a shower and maybe a swim in our pool you will be ready for breakfast which will be served on the sun terrace next to the gardens. Expect superfood juices, eggs, omelettes, porridge, fruit salad and ice-cold water/juices.

Your day continues with kicking back round the pool or beach and watching the world go by. If you are lucky you might find the hidden hammocks to take a cheeky nap or if you have energy to burn you can have a game of tennis with your new yogi friends on our private court, the beauty is, it’s completely up to you!

Once rejuvenated you will take part in another carefully selected fun training/ yoga session. Again, you will have some time to rest and relax and upon your return, lunch will be waiting. Delicious soups, lentil dishes, fresh fish, vibrant salads and vegetables and ice cold pressed juices. This brings us nicely to the afternoon which can be spent relaxing by the pool, soaking up the sun with a good book, chilled music or you can go for a walk and explore the stunning views of our eco paradise.

Our third session takes place before dinner; cross fit and primal movement (a mix of strength and power as well as grace and movement). A well earned dinner offers tasty vegan, vegetarian & meat options. Each meal aligns with the goal of health and wellbeing as well as detoxing and burning fat, our chef offers a fantastic array of local produce that may include fresh vegetables, grilled fish & even prawns accompanied by rainbow salads & traditional dishes.

Your evening draws to a close with a final session of mediation, themed around deep relaxation and sleep science helping to promote the best sleep
environment possible so you fall into a deep NREM slumber (the most powerful healing stage of sleep), take your time to walk back to your room not forgetting to take in the stars and the amazing views, light your aromatherapy candle and drift away while listening to the carefully selected guided sleep mediations. You will not want to leave our little oasis!

“You will create memories with new friends for life!”
