Escape the winter on a yoga retreat in Lanzarote.

Lanzarote Yoga Retreat | February 2021

20–27 February 2021

We’ve planned another sunny yoga retreat – this time in the Canary Islands in Spain, on the lovely island of Lanzarote, with sunshine and warm weather year-round.

We’ll stay at a wonderful 5* hotel right on the coast, with yoga classes outdoors by the ocean, fresh air, and delicious healthy food. You can eat and drink what you like, no rules and no schedules. And plenty of time to relax with lots of sunshine to get you through the winter!

We’ll practice yoga twice a day, all yoga levels are welcome and we often have people joining us on their own. Two of us from Yoga Escapes will be there with the group to plan day trips and dinners.

Lanzarote is a beautiful island and we’ll show you around and take care of all the logistics, so you can relax and enjoy a well-deserved break.

What to expect

Our Lanzarote yoga retreat is the perfect escape from the cold winter weather to warm sunny days on a lovely island. We’ll practice yoga outdoors right in front of the ocean, we’ll relax at the pool, take day trips to beautiful beaches and old colonial Spanish towns, and long walks along the promenade.

Our yoga teacher Daniela Olds will teach two yoga classes a day and will modify poses for beginners and challenge the more advanced yogis, so everyone can join. The morning Vinyasa flow classes are quite active, while the afternoon Yin yoga classes are very restorative and soothing. And all of them are optional (we’ll have one morning off with no yoga for a break mid-week).

We’ll plan group dinners and do some things together, but we understand that having some quiet time alone is also important. We’ll recommend different things to do around the island, but completely up to you to join what you like.

Lanzarote offers something for everyone – you can walk along the coast to nearby towns, enjoy water sports and boat trips, indulge in a spa treatment, explore a new beach every day, or go for a bike ride. Or you can spend your days by the pool with a book, soaking up the sun and warm weather – and that’s absolutely fine!

Luxury Accommodation

5* Secrets Lanzarote Resort & Spa

We’re hosting our yoga retreat at the Secrets Lanzarote Resort & Spa, a refurbished adults-only hotel located right by the ocean near the lovely marina of Puerto Calero. It has panoramic ocean views surrounded by lush landscaped gardens. There are four outdoor pools (some heated) as well as an indoor heated one – your choice!

All the rooms have been renovated to a modern standard this year with great attention to detail – you can pick between ocean-view and garden-view rooms. The hotel has several delicious restaurants, as well as several bars including a poolside bar and an indoor bar – both offering snacks as well as cocktails.

The spa offers wonderful treatments and has a sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and Turkish baths. The hotel also has excellent gym facilities, in addition to fitness classes, tennis, table tennis, and the hotel can also arrange golfing and diving classes on request.

Tapas in Tenerife in the Canary Islands on a luxury yoga retreat.

Local Cuisine

The food in Lanzarote is a mix of typical Spanish tapas and paellas with fresh natural ingredients, as well as every other international cuisine you’re craving on holiday. Plenty of options – fresh veggies, salads, grilled fish and meat, all sorts of tapas and rice dishes.

We love to try out local restaurants and taste the typical Spanish dishes, it’s all part of the holiday. You can eat and drink what you like, we’ll try some nice Spanish wines with dinner. We’re also sensitive to people’s dietary needs and will make sure there are options for everyone.

We’ll have a large buffet breakfast together after yoga, with all sort of options. Some people may have a light lunch or snack by the pool in the afternoon. We’ll plan a group dinner in town or on the promenade each evening for those who want to join (lunches and dinners are extra – you pay for what you consume rather than splitting the bill evenly).

The buffet breakfast / brunch is included in the price. We purposefully didn’t include snacks and dinners so everyone can decide what they like to eat and spend accordingly, rather than have pre-set dinners at the hotel which would be more expensive. You only pay for what you eat and drink, there are many nice restaurants and they’re very reasonably priced.

Where we are going

Where is the yoga retreat located?

Our yoga retreat in the Canary Islands is located on the island of Lanzarote (see Lanzarote on a map).

Although Lanzarote belongs to Spain, it lies further south, just off the coast of Africa, with perfect warm weather and sunshine year-round – one of the reasons why this island is such a wonderful beach holiday destination.

We’ll be staying in the lovely resort of Puerto Calero on the south-east part of the island – the most upscale part of Lanzarote with a lovely harbor and promenade filled with seaside cafés and restaurants. Our 5* hotel is right on the coast, secluded in a quiet area, but just a ten minute walk into town.

There are many direct flights from several European cities.

About Lanzarote

Lanzarote has a lot of natural beauty, with a mix of rugged terrain, dramatic landscapes, beautiful sandy beaches and stunning cliffs. Unlike its neighboring islands, it doesn’t have high-rise buildings, and has maintained a more sophisticated feel.

The resorts of Playa Blanca in the south and Puerto del Carmen halfway up the coast have lots of shops and restaurants, and there are also charming colonial villages that are worth a visit – our favorite is Teguise. We’ll take the group there one evening for dinner.

Lanzarote also has some beautiful beaches – from the famous Playa Papagayo and Playa Flamingo in the south, to Playa las Cucharasa a bit further up the coast, and Playa de los Pocillos not far from our hotel. We’ll take day trips and visit several of them.

What yoga means to us

Yoga is at the heart of our retreats, and we offer the real deal. You’ll definitely get a good workout, but the goal of the physical practice is to challenge you physically so you can begin to let go and quiet the mind. That’s what yoga is all about – calming the mind. And that’s what we teach on our yoga retreats. You will feel re-energized and restored both physically and mentally.

Vinyasa Yoga and Yin Yoga

We offer two yoga classes a day on our yoga retreat in Lanzarote: a morning Vinyasa flow class to get your heart going, and a slower Yin class in the afternoons. Both classes are suitable for all levels.

What is Vinyasa Yoga? What is Yin Yoga?

Your yoga teacher and host

Daniela Olds will be our yoga teacher in Lanzarote and will teach a Vinyasa flow class in the mornings and a slower Yin yoga class in the afternoons. She will modify classes and will give you options so you can practice at your own pace.

Laura will also be there to plan day trips and group dinners, and to make sure everything runs smoothly so you can relax and enjoy your yoga week.

I never imagined what an incredible and transformational week this would be for me. It exceeded my imagination and expectations… I loved every minute of this adventure.

Michel, New York

What people are saying

Our week in Mykonos with Yoga Escapes exceeded all expectations. To practise yoga in front of a beautiful Greek church with a full 180 view of the sea and soft breeze in your face is one of the most idyllic things in the world. Tania was an incredible patient teacher who added to the whole 5* luxury experience, if you want to transport yourself to a relaxed yoga heaven for a week this is the place!

Laura you have created an experience where bonds can be formed among yogis from around the world in a peaceful, friendly, and non-judgemental environment. Your honestly and passion for your business as well as your professionalism is outstanding.

What a wonderful week! As a yoga newbie I thoroughly enjoyed Lizi’s classes, the setting was stunning and the group was such good company. The day trip was so worth it, and having the benefit of your knowledge Laura and your organisation was priceless. The restaurants every night were amazing and the food was stunning. I loved the setup with yoga in the mornings and afternoons with time to chill during the day – I wouldn’t change anything. Thank you again.

Getting to Lanzarote

Fly into Lanzarote airport, there are direct flights from several European cities – check Easyjet for some schedules. Otherwise you can fly to Madrid or Barcelona and take a connecting flight to Lanzarote. Flights are still quite reasonable, but we strongly suggest booking them in advance since airline prices increase closer to the travel dates.

A taxi from the airport to the hotel is about €20 – there are plenty of taxis at the exit of the airport. If you arrive around the same time as someone else, we’ll put you in touch so you can share a taxi.

Plan to arrive at some point on the 20 February 2021, we’ll have a group dinner that evening to meet each other, and yoga classes will start the next morning. The last class will be on the afternoon of the 26 February, and people will leave throughout the day on the 27 February depending on flights. If you wish to arrive earlier or stay longer, please let us know, we can help arrange that with the hotel.
