"Healing with Ananda in La Gomera"
Ananda has a timeless presence and gives loving guidance in Kundalini and Yin yoga. Great support and knowledge was provided with the fasting process which made it easy.
The Amma massage treatment I received was relaxing and cleansing.

I just spent the most amazing week practicing yoga with Ananda in La Gomera. I didn't know anything about La Gomera before and booked the trip through yoga retreats as I needed a good week of rest and exercising. I didn't have any expectations as I booked it last minute due to my crazy schedule and was I positively surprised. First of all, the landscape of La Gomera and the beautiful locations and gardens of Jardin Tecina hotel are absolutely amazing - Pinterest perfect. Having said that, the trip would not have had the same positive effect if it wouldn't be for Ananda - my yoga teacher. This was one of the most personalized retreats and treatments I ever had. Although the week was intense, I came out of it relaxed and with a different perspective. We practiced Kundalini yoga with sunrise at 7:30am in the most picturesque location close to the sea breathing in the purest prana and Yin Yoga with sun set at around 5:30 in the most beautiful surroundings. Not to mention the daily Japanese massage that completed the detox and yoga sessions. Ananda has been great throughout. She customized the program to my needs and state of health. This was one of the most personalized experiences where Ananda spent a lot of time. Her energy massage also worked miracles. Well, after one week I can certainly say that I feel more energised, inspired and I have a positive state of mind. This is truly priceless. I would highly recommend this yoga retreat to anybody who is looking for an all round treatment and relaxation.

La Gomera is a beautiful and unique Island - you find a lot of nature with beautiful mountains and idyllic beaches and places at the sea, and a lot of the people you meet are warmhearted and inspiring. I loved this place: very authentic and peaceful with a wonderful energy. The retreat with Ananda and Volker is like a small oasis of peace and calm. I enjoyed the time with them and to talk to and laugh with them. I am grateful for their good energy and their experiences they shared with me. The food from Ananda ist delicious - very authentic Indian, Thai or La Gomerian meals made with love and care. The yoga lessons and meditation sessions with Volker are very peaceful and helpful. A good mix of challenge and relaxation, but always with calmness and a lovely sense of humor.
