There is a selection of uniquely designed rooms. There are a very limited number of rooms for single occupancy. In addition, this accommodation also has an organic farm, tropical gardens, a natural spring, two swimming pools, and the beach a few steps away.

Terrace rooms with a garden view

The terraced rooms with a garden view are quiet, comfortable, and prettily decorated with a shared shady veranda that overlooks the tropical gardens. Bathroom facilities are close-by and shared.

Garden huts

The charming and comfortable garden huts are spacious and airy with a private seated area outside. They are set in the lush green gardens with the serene sounds of bird song and the sea. The bathroom is shared.

The pyramid and A-frame

The pyramid and A-frame are both well furnished little houses with a double bed in this paradise garden with a sitting space outside. The pyramid is ideal for a couple sharing and the A frame is perfect for single occupancy. All garden accommodation has plentiful shared bathroom facilities nearby.

Terrace rooms with a sea view

The terraced rooms with a sea-view have doors that open out onto a second shared veranda with stunning ocean views. These rooms have en-suite bathroom facilities.

The morning class will gently open the body and attune the mind to the breath. The class will slowly move and build into a flowing and dynamic sequence, always incorporating the cultivation of awareness, physical alignment, breath, and the chakras (energy centers).

The afternoon sessions will be a playful and creative exploration of the healing power of sound, drawing from a variety of traditions to connect breath, body, and voice. You'll chant mantras in order to open the heart, cleanse the mind, and create inner and outer harmony.

As an experienced singer, performer, yoga teacher, and sound healer, your instructor, Kate, brings a sense of joy, freedom, and sacredness to these sessions. No one has to "perform". It's simply an opportunity to meditate, heal, and wake-up your avenue of expression in your own unique way. You will enjoy the special high that's possible when you come together as a group to make one 'voice' with specific healing intention.

Finca Argayall is one of the best-kept secrets of the Canary Islands, Spain. This magical venue on the unspoilt island of La Gomera sits nestled in the cliffs in a secluded bay, with a spectacularly diverse landscape. The contrast of the rainforest, unspoilt beaches, and small fishing towns makes a visit to this island a full and rich experience. The venue itself runs as a community and welcomes others to experience and respect this beautiful and unique life.

Each day, you will be offered three organic vegetarian meals, breakfast, lunch, and dinner apart from one evening when you can go into the nearby village to taste the culinary delights offered locally.

In the village, you can book to go mountain biking, dolphin watching, and kayaking. There are plenty of walks on offer on this beautiful island, from traditional fishing villages to rainforests, banana plantations, and secluded sandy beaches.

Or you might just want to stay within the beauty of the venue itself, relax by one of the two pools, or simply take a few steps onto the beach and go for a swim in the warm, blue sea. Treatments such as massage and homeopathy are also available at an additional cost.

  • 3 vegetarian meals each day (apart from dinner one evening)
  • 7 nights' accommodation
  • Daily meditation and yoga classes (apart from one yoga free day)

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Tenerife South Airport (TRF).

There are several airlines that fly to Tenerife South Airport (TRF). It is best to arrive before midday if possible to take the afternoon ferry across to La Gomera. From the airport, you will take a taxi to Los Cristianos ferry port, a 15-minute journey. From here, you will take a ferry to the island of La Gomera. The ferry takes about 45 minutes and costs between 30 - 40 EUR. From San Sebastian, you can take a taxi directly to Finca Argayall or alternatively there is a bus.

For the return, Yoga on a Shoestring recommends you to take an afternoon flight. It is a little adventure to get to the Finca but really worth it for such a special place.

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 50% of the total price.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
  • The rest of the payment should be paid 42 days before arrival.

    "Thank you Yoga on a Shoestring for a wonderful weekend. Brazier's Park is both eccentric and inviting. With its green gardens or cozy interior, you can find the perfect spot to switch off. And you won't go hungry with amazing vegetarian meals and vegan desserts! The yoga classes were structured for all levels and really opened up your body to detox and energize. The weekend was full of positive energy from woman coming together and re connecting. Absolutely recommend to anyone!!! "

Testimonials

  • Review by Jane Egginton

    "This yoga operation offers something unusual and much needed: affordable yoga holidays that provide a touch of luxury. Don't expect slick, five star accommodation, but do expect experienced, committed teachers who provide a reasonably priced yoga retreat to remember. Choose a magical beachside retreat with masterful yoga teacher Ali Gunning, or a luxury new-year retreat in Morocco. Other inspiring locations around the world include the unspoilt Italian coast, a tiny island in Greece and the pretty Norfolk countryside."

    "Yoga on a Shoestring aims to make yoga holidays more affordable by gathering a variety of teachers in a host of locations running yoga holidays throughout the summer. Its September trip to Masseria della Zingara (the house of the gypsy) in Puglia houses you in a beautiful and restful 18th-century building surrounded by olive groves and cherry trees and offers two yoga classes a day as well as opportunities for bike rides, beach time and the chance to explore the area."

Masseria della Zingara is set in over 20 acres of olive trees, figs, cherries and almonds and is located near Polignano a Mare, the ice cream capital of Italy. The yoga classes focus on movement, breath, relaxation and meditation. The week long retreat starts at $646.64 to $1,333. The price includes accommodations, three meals a day, and morning and evening yoga classes."

    "This was a really wonderful trip. The accommodation was great. I didn't feel like a guest in hotel, but rather a welcome guest in Finca's community. The food was plentiful and delicious. Regarding the teaching or yoga practice. Kate is the most amazing person who just radiates peace. I loved the practice and felt really quite sad when I had to leave a day early. I look forward to travelling on another trip with YOAS soon."
