Nothing feeds the creative process as a spacious mind and attentive heart

 

Asanas help us to shape our reality, to become more creative and less constrained by expanding and reshaping our energy body to release shakti, our creative potential. Thanks to the exercises of Pranayama, to the relaxation in Shavasana, to the side and twisting postures we free our Prana, which brings a positive attitude and success to all we want to attract into our lives. Through the practice of yoga we can awaken our "inner artist". We may do any job, but if we approach it with a creative attitude that can give us the feeling of being completely present, awake and alive. Create objects with our hands, coloring, drawing, modeling, sewing, are all form of creative meditation. Apart from the satisfaction of having something made by us, you can enjoy a moment of relax, liberation and expression.

During the retreat we will have the opportunity to express our creativity through the practice of yoga, meditation, cooking class and group talks.

KINEGUA VENUE

“An oasis at the civilization's desert“, as Unamuno defined the island. We looked for (and found) the perfect spot and designed the right villa. 

A permeable, attractive, warm and villa

Permeable, where the power of the landscape inundates the inside and the architecture conditions and tames the environment. A villa to enjoy indoor and outdoor.

Attractive, because the mixture of the local and traditional architecture with the contemporary space plasticity guarantees a pleasant and calm stay.

Warm, because it has simple resources to live in on a daily basis, and think of it lie your own.

 

BEACHES EL COTILLO

There are miles of beaches to the south of this part of sunny Fuerteventura. To the north are the lagoon beaches of shallow clear water and white sand contrasting against the black volcanic rock. The biggest of the beaches, La Concha, has a large car park, a beach bar and a lovely beach. It gets very busy with locals and tourists. The smaller lagoon beaches are favorite places for naturists. There are more lagoon beaches to the east of the lighthouse.

NATURAL RESERVE CORRALEJO

9 km of big beaches and small coves At first glance it's hard to see how this desert landscape can hold some of the most idyllic beaches in the Canary Islands. Where the dunes meet the sea you get fine, white sand beaches and turquoise waters. A protected natural area almost 9 km long with almost endless stretches of sand and little sheltered bays. A short distance south of the old port are a couple of more spacious sandy beaches that have fine views of the Island of Lobos. Whereas the small beach by the old harbour in Corralejo seems to making use of the space, these larger beaches are aimed at holidaymakers staying in the north of Fuerteventura, and have everything needed for a day at the beach on Fuerteventura. The town is surrounded by sand dunes and miles of sandy beaches that form a nature reserve. The beaches between Punta de Tivas and the Tres Islas hotels, called Playa del Pozo, Playa del Medano and Playa de Viejo run in to each other and this sandy shore is sometimes called Flag Beach. These beaches are exposed to the wind and this makes these beaches ideal places to pursue those activities that require a little more life to the water. Circular stone structures provide a windbreak for those that just want to take advantage of Fuerteventura's sunny climate.

LAJARES

Lajares is quite a trendy place, popular with surfing type young people. It is a fair sized village, that lies 6-8 kilometres from El Cotillo, Corralejo and La Oliva. The fact that it is quite spread out gives the impression, when you drive through it, that it is not as large as it actually is. Lajares has quite a large artisan market, held each Saturday until around 6pm. It was just before 6pm when we visited so it was rather quiet, but it gets quite busy earlier on and you can buy some unique craft items.

VOLCAN CALDERON HONDO

From the north of the town of Lajares and towards Corralejo, a series of volcanoes are aligned, which generated 50,000 years ago and they did increase the area of ​​Lanzaroteand Fuerteventura also bringing it closer to creating the island of Lobos. The Calderon Hondo is one of the best preserved and has a crater 70 meters deep. Access to this impressive volcano is very simple, and can be made from several ways: from Corralejo, from Lajares, or from the road from Corralejo Lajares. All these trails are marked and there are ways well adapted. Upon reaching the top, we found a vantage point from which to contemplate the 70 meter depth of this amazing volcano. From this viewpoint there are also stunning views of the other volcanoes that make up this natural area and are close to Corralejo.

LOS LOBOS ISLAND

A serene refuge This nature reserve, once inhabited only by monk seals, is today a serene refuge from the stresses of daily life. The boat trip across is worthwhile just to see the plants and birds that live nowhere else on Earth. The rest of this idyllic islet is a fantastic bonus. 

The island now boasts a model seals and visitors centre with toilets for visitors. The island is small enough to be walked round in a few hours, but large enough for you to be able to feel that you are the only person on the island. The entire coastline is just under 14km. The fact that the island is a nature reserve means that you are not free to tramp all over the island, but a series of well defined paths allows all of the island to be seen. There are rangers who will make sure you stick to the paths! The views from the top of The Caldera de la Montana are particularly rewarding, though they are not entirely free, as the 127m climb to the summit is too strenuous for some people. There is a wide range of flora on the island. It got its name Lobos from the large population of seals "wolves of the sea" as they were called, that used to live there.
