In every tradition most of the qualities attributed to each element are the same.

EARTH:

Calming and grounding. Brings mental stability and structure. In our body it’s represented in the skeletal system, muscles, hair and organs. In the mind it brings mental stability and structure to our life. When in balance, makes you feel abundant and nurtured.

WATER

Provides the ability to adapt, flow, act selflessly, and avoid unhealthy attachments. Represents fluid in the body such as plasma, urine, salvia, sweat, any body fluids. In the mind it brings in feelings of attachment, love and compassion. When in balance life seems to flow naturally, we emphasize for others and get in touch with our emotions.

FIRE

Brings confidence, passion and courage. Represents the heat and transformation in our body. It helps to regulate our digestive system and metabolism. In the mind it brings clear perception and discernment.  Fire is our inspiration, motivation, courage to act, feel passionate and  overcome stagnation.

AIR

A channel for clear communication and self-expression.Represents everything moving throughout the body such as blood circulation, nerve impulses, movement of the joints, and the breath. In the mind air moves our thoughts and emotions.Air infuses us with curiosity and inspires us to converse with others, acting from a place of compassion and love.

ETER (SPACE. WE LIKE TO CALL IT LOVE)

A container for all the other elements. We like to call eter love because it is the source of intuition and wisdom from the universe. In the body, it’s represented by the space that creates empty spaces or cavities that quickly get filled by the other elements. In the mind space represents consciousness. It’s what connects us to the everything so when in balance, it gives a sensation of belonging, expansion and magnificence.

retreat holidays

Retreat and holidays are an opportunity to let go routine out of the way, stop our inner pace and see clear again.

When we are on a retreat or holidays we just enjoy and breath as much as we can and a lot of new positive ideas come to our mind. We really feel our place within our surrounding. Human beings being one with Nature, with all of us.

During our retreat or holidays we usually give up, stop going against the flow and become again part of this planet. As living beings, the laws of nature will always take us back to them. Balance and all the struggle to stay on it is one of those natural laws that inevitably rule our steps. Make balance be part of our daily life is a wise way to recognize ourselves as living beings. Gran Canaria will give you all sort of experiences, landscapes, disconnection and reconnection. You can balance all that receiving during your holiday, with giving forests a little green. Our proposal is simple and straightforward: for every guest who comes to See Yoga Holidays, we plant a new tree. The forest that we are contributing to grow is in the Finca de Osorio, which belongs to the Nature Reserve of the Doramas Rural Park. Its original length is 4000m2 in which there will be planted about 400 tree of different species belonging to the variety of Laurisilva. The forest is maintained and managed by the Foresta Foundation. Planting a tree on the island is a small gesture, not only to preserve the environment, but to improve it. If every visitor of Gran Canaria cared to do this small gesture, the balance that we strive for in our daily life would be reflected in our environment and it would increasingly expand.You’ve never been so oxygenated as during your yoga holidays. We will take you to plant a tree to help the Nature also breathe.

Yoga holidays Spain offers you more than yoga. They are the best opportunity to discover the magic of volcanic Nature while you rediscover yourself.

Our yoga holidays in Spain are made for those who are open to be surprised by an authentic experience on an island full of hidden places to be explored.

Nature can be so fanciful when it manifests within the volcano forces. Lava erupts everywhere, magma expands and cools down becoming the owner of the road and bubbling gases get trapped in the midst of this activity. Yoga holidays in Spain with See Yoga will take you to a place that is the result of the power of the Earth. In the north of Gran Canaria, where the volcanic rock decided to stay oceanfront it sounded out Neptune leaving empty spaces to be filled with every high tide. Wherever the ocean finds in volcanic rock somewhere to stay, you will find an intense smell of the ocean, a glittering turquoise and your sudden need to dive into the silence.

Best yoga retreats are the ones that can take you through a journey to explore your true self, let your creativity flow and empower for a renewed perspective.

Best yoga retreats can open your mind and soul to let new possibilities and ideas flow. Imagine a state of being when your body feels lighter and your spirit is free enough to express in all sort of creative ways.

Best yoga retreats only can evolve in landscapes like a valley where rich and pure water runs a few meters below the ground, flooding the landscape with a burst of green pointing toward the blue sky. A place where you can feel sheltered surrounded by mountains with the gaze resting on the sea. A place ruled by a magic and volcanic force, a vibrant power that shimmers with each of your steps, with each of your sighs. A white town with its own pace where everywhere you look you will find tropical fruit trees, coffee plantations, vineyards. A burst of life that seems to recall that one day the same valley was inhabited by peoples who worshiped the four elements. A place where you can walk along the paths, the sorrow dissolves, the heart expands and the song you hum becomes one with the heartbeat of the Earth. Imagine that this place exists in western Gran Canaria. Imagine that its called Agaete Valley and that is already waiting for you.

best yoga retreats

Best yoga retreats in Europe have been born even before yoga arrived to our occidental lands.

Best yoga retreats started to appear in Europe when someone discovered stunning places such as Gran Canaria and the only thing this someone could do was feel the Nature and breath.

Surely you remember that time when the discussions with yourself about which was the best yoga retreats to go for your holidays were so long that when you finally decided it was too late. Perhaps after so much thinking, the flights,the possible accomodations and even the motivation of taking some time to relax were over. We propose you that this time and forever, the only thing you do when you choose your destiny is to be aware if the mere sound of its name moves you. Take action when something tells you that this is the place, let yourself be surprised by what you find, enjoy the feeling of doing something “just because”.We offer you this island as an option to come and experience something different. Gran Canaria knows how to move us, we are sure it will know how to move you. Dip into its eternal spring, kindness and the good humor of its people. Because only you will understand the true meaning of the word “contrast” when you see the green of the laurisilva forest on the reddish black of the volcanic cliffs surounded by the deep blue Atlantic Ocean. Because you can appreciate this contrast only with only one hour ride. Because it has kept on its old colonial style buildings the beautiful memories of southern influences. Because you will only be able to say that you know what the traditional cuisine is when you taste the “papas con mojo”. Because you will melt yourself with pleasure when you try its tropical fruits. Because you will be welcome to one of the places in Europe that has preserved an own soft and human pace. Because of its authenticity. Because of its warmth. Because of its heart. Now tell us if Gran Canaria is already moving you inside.

Health retreats are the ones that make you feel like having a totally renewed body and mind.

Health retreats are your holidays options not only when your are not feeling good physicaly or emotionally, but also when you want to give to yourself some time to release, energize and restore.

The atmosphere of the place where the health retreats are held has a very special role, as it shelter us, breaths with us and dives into the most hidden spaces of your soul. Las Palmas is a small Canarian city where life becomes intense, peaceful and warm. When we first arrived to Las Palmas a soft and playful feeling filled us, seducing us to surrender and making us want to never leave. Walking, swimming, greeting, stopping, admiring, we wondered why did we know so sure that Las Palmas was our place. Maybe it was because its sailor spirit, that is still alive wandering around the bars, the streets, the gestures. Maybe because of being the Spanish city with the cleanest air of the country according to the OMS or because it embraces in its coast Las Canteras, considered one of the best urban beaches in the world. Maybe it was because it wraps you hopelessly with its intense and gentle rhythm. Maybe because it gives you so much and asks you very little, because it convinces you that silence is possible in an urban environment. Maybe because it offers so many possible cultural and sports activities. Maybe because its distances are small and its experiences are big. Maybe because of its joy,taste and color. Whatever it might be the reason, we know for sure Las Palmas is our place and we are looking forward to sharing it with you.
