Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve never practiced yoga before. Is that a problem?

Of course not! The program is designed for girls of all abilities, from complete beginner to advanced. Even if you’ve done yoga before many of the elements we will practice will be new to you. 

What if I come by myself?

The majority of our Amigas come by themselves. Although you may come alone, you will leave the retreat with new, lifelong friends. We have many women who meet on retreat and come back together.

Is there an age limit or minimum?

Not specifically. In general 18-60 is the age of most guests. If you are over 60 please contact us for details of our special weeks for over 60s if you would prefer.

I have specific food requirements, is that a problem?

We promote a healthy vegetarian diet as per yoga beliefs but we understand that everyone is free to choose their own diet plan. The welcome meal on the first night will be vegetarian with local sea food but after that each guest can choose where and what they want to eat. Nutrition advice will be discussed during the retreat for those who would like to partake. 

What should I bring with me ?

Firstly an open heart and a smile on your face. In your luggage we suggest comfortable and loose clothing, sunglasses and sun cream, shoes suitable for our volcano walk, a towel to take to the beach and a sun hat. In the winter months it can get a little chilly some evenings so also bring a light jacket or warm jumper/hoody.   All these items can be bought locally in the great selection of shops in Corralejo town.

Do I have to participate in everything on the schedule?

You do not need to participate in everything; you can pace yourself to find the perfect amount of activity for you. We support you in doing as much or as little as is right for you, depending on how you are feeling. The initial schedule will give you a sense of the flow of each day. It’s always subject to change, depending upon the needs of the group, weather, etc.
