You can do yoga inside at home, come join us outside. All our Yoga Las Palmas classes occur outside at numerous locations. The meetup spot is typically outside The Couple coffee shop located on Las Canteras Beach. Yet, on Wednesdays, we meet at the wooden platforms of Playa Las Alcaravaneras.

On Mondays and Fridays, yoga starts at 8:30 am just outside of The Couple. This session includes a twenty-minute silent meditation walk along the scenic Atlantic coastline. On these days we practice at the stunning Playa de El Confital.

Monday to Friday, yoga begins at 9:30 am outside The Couple. This session doesn’t include a meditation walk. Rather, it’s a 90 minute class conducted at the iconic Las Canteras Beach. We usually practice on the wooden platforms closest to our meetup spot.

Wednesdays start at 8:00 am and the meetup spot is not The Couple. On this day we meet where we practice, at the wooden platforms of Playa Las Alcaravaneras. This spot provides a stunning urban environment to practice yoga.

We offer regular free donation outdoor/beach yoga classes and private yoga sessions. Others may refer to our classes as Pay What You Can or Good Karma classes. If you cannot donate money we kindly ask for a nice review on Google or Tripadvisor. Our classes are in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and the private sessions come to you anywhere on Gran Canaria.

Please note that the weather conditions control the day’s plans. Hence, we may prefer to do yoga on the wooden platforms, but end up elsewhere due to the wind. This is why it is important to be at the meetup spot on time.

What to bring? we suggest you bring a yoga mat, a towel and/or blanket, athletic clothing, sunscreen, and some water. Shavasana can be a chilly time, ensure your clothing is appropriate. Also, respect the weather but don’t fear it as it’s often perfect for yoga even though it may seem otherwise.

Five Points of Yoga

Swami Vishnudevananda condensed the essence of the yoga teachings into five principles for physical and mental health as well as spiritual growth. These are the core teachings of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres and Ashrams.

Proper exercise (Asanas)
Enhances the flexibility of the joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments. The asanas improve circulation, massage the internal organs and improve organ function. A flexible and strong spine enhances blood circulation and keeps the body young and powerful.

Proper breathing (Pranayama)
Connects the body to its battery, the solar plexus, which is an enormous reservoir of energy. Deep, conscious breathing boosts our daily energy reserves – stress and many diseases (for example, depression) can be alleviated in this way.

Proper relaxation (Savasana)
Proper relaxation is an excellent cooling system, comparable to that of an automobile. It’s the most natural way of re-energizing the body. Relaxation is so important because the body and mind cannot perform well under constant stress. To control and balance body and mind, one has to use the body’s energy efficiently. This is the main motivation for learning how to relax.

Proper diet (vegetarian)
The yogic diet is lacto-vegetarian and consists mainly of grains, pulses, fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds and dairy products. A vegetarian diet is wholesome, easy to digest and supplies the body with a maximum amount of nutrients and energy. In general, we should select food items that are as fresh and natural as possible (no preservatives or artificial flavours), ideally organic and non-GM foods. Careful preparation of the food is essential to retain a maximum amount of nutrients. Long storage, refinement or overcooking destroys many vital components of our food.

Positive thinking and meditation (Vedanta and Dhyana)
Positive thinking and meditation are the keys to peace of mind. Meditation is the method used to calm and focus the mind. Regular practice promotes not only mental equanimity, but physical and spiritual well-being as well. Before we can meditate, though, we need to center the mind through concentration techniques and positive thinking. A mind full of negative thoughts and feelings is hard to calm down.

An easy way to remember the five points of Yoga is by using a car as a metaphor. An automobile requires five things: lubricating system, proper exercises; battery, proper breathing; cooling system, proper relaxation; fuel, proper diet; and responsible driving, positive thinking and meditation.
