YOGA RETREAT TEACHER
When he was only a teenager he was introduced to meditation in San Francisco. He quickly observed that when he meditated before climbing, diving or reading a text he wanted to learn, he acquired better focus and lived a more intense experience; and meditating at the end of an often hectic day made him feel more centred again.
So, meditating naturally became part of his routine and went to live to Vancouver and then to Paris where he was trained by the Gianfermi brothers into Satyananda yoga.
A couple of years later he moved to New York to attend Vina yoga school where he learned new approch to Hatha Yoga and the pedagogy to train yoga teachers. From his Vina yoga experience he understood that joy is the base of all practises.

Come with us an discover the fascinating world of the volcanoes. Together we can take a leap in time and observe our planet how it was millions of years ago. We will be trekking in the Natural Park of the Volcanoes, an incredible landscape, the result of eruptions wich devasted the island in the 18 century wich became one of the most important volcanic episodies of the history of mankind over the last 500 years.
We will clim to the top of volcanoes, down to the craters, walk alongside lava flows, discover volcanis tubes, lava lakes and we shall also discover the resurgence of life in a place devasted by fire.
ROUTE 2: Famara cliff
We make this route in the mountain massif of Famara-Guatifay, one of the oldest parts of Lanzarote. Our route begins in the village of Haría, situated in the Valley of the One Thousand Palm trees.
We continue onwards towards the Bosquecillo, a litle canarian pine tree wood, which is in danger of extinction, located at the Malpaso ravine. We carry on walking to the top of the Risco de Famara from where we will enjoy beautiful and contrasting views of the Valley of the One Thousand Palm trees to one side and Famara Beach and the Chinijo Archipelago to the other. From there we descend through the Rincón ravine until Haría.
This trek has a great cultural and landscaping interest. We have the opportunity of knowing the ways of life of the inhabitants of the valley as well as a wide representation of the island vegetation.
