Lanzarote is one of the best-preserved islands of the Canary Islands in Spain off of the cost of Portugal. It offers mild and pleasant temperature all year round, crystal clear waters with abundant marine life, relaxing beaches and 300 volcanoes that give special energy to the land.
It is the silence and tranquility of the island that is unique, that makes it a perfect place for a spiritual retreat to find harmony and balance in the unique nature that is offered here.
The retreat center was built to offer a place where people can regenerate and nourish themselves through the power of nature, relaxation, and healthy eating.
It is immersed in the calm interior of the island, surrounded by vineyards, only 15 minutes from some of the most beautiful beaches and 20 minutes from the airport (with direct flights to most European capitals).

Yoga Retreat & Trek to Poon Hill with Joan Hyman and Kamala Yoga Nepal
Joan Hyman, international yoga teacher with 20 years of teaching experience, and award-winning Kamala Yoga Nepal have partnered up to offer you a magical journey to Nepal. This yoga retreat and trek will introduce you to Nepal’s captivating cultures and the spectacular natural beauty of the Himalayas and offer a balance of cultural exploration, physical challenge, and leisurely relaxation.
We start out in bustling Kathmandu, where we visit some of the capital’s most captivating sites of cultural and spiritual significance. Our comfortable accommodation with beautiful rooftop infinity pool allows us to retreat from the city’s intensity and liveliness. Joan’s yoga classes are held next to the rooftop pool with the spectacular backdrop of Kathmandu’s skyline. On the third day, we take a short domestic flight to picturesque lakeside Pokhara, where we settle into a slower routine for a few days. Alongside singing bowl immersion and kirtan sessions, and delicious and healthy lakeside brunches, our days here include Joan’s inspired morning and evening yoga classes at the bright Kamala Yoga Studio, just steps away from our comfortable accommodation. A sunrise yoga excursion, and visit to the Peace Pagoda overlooking Pokhara and its hills and mountains allow us to connect with the spiritual aspect and natural beauty of our surroundings.
The next part of our journey has us packing up, and heading into the mountains…
With a team of experienced guides and porters, we begin our 5-day yoga trek past terraced slopes, paddy fields, and through rhododendron forests. Joan’s morning and evening classes accompany and optimally support us throughout the trek. The authentic villages we experience along the trek, including the traditional Gurung village of Ghandruk, offer a taste of the culture and lifestyle of ethnic people like Gurungs and Magars. The destination and highest point of this trek is Poon Hill (3,210m), which we climb before sunrise to experience spectacular panoramic views of the snow-capped mountains of the Himalayas. As our yoga trek concludes, we head to Pokhara to unwind in luxurious Pavilions nestled among the hills, where each guest is treated to a soothing post-trek massage.
The following day, after an early morning yoga practice, we finally return to our base in Kathmandu. The afternoon is spent at your leisure, perhaps enjoying the rooftop infinity pool, or with the Kamala Yoga Nepal team, who will show you their favorite Thamel shops and hideaways. A memorable final dinner concludes our journey.
“Joan’s extensive travel experience, great sense of humor and ability to connect with foreign cultures at a deep lever make her an ideal international yoga retreat teacher. Her retreats consistently sell out and are a testimony to these qualities. Her commitment to having fun along the way makes working with her a total joy”
– Michelle from International Yoga
