  • It was the first time that I was traveling alone and it is my first retreat. I really wanted to come but at the same time I was very uncertain about what I was going to find, if I was going to adapt, if I was going to like it and blessed the day I made the reservation because it was a beautiful experience, I learned so many things (among others English language). I have felt at home, as a family.
    Thank you for your love, dedication, because you have made me very happy!

  • And so this week has passed so quickly!

    Coming to this stunning place was a blessing for my mind body and soul. I came here with a completely different idea of what a retreat should look like and I was happy to find out that my expectations were totally subverted. I was surprise to realise how people who don't know each other can became a close-knit group just in a few days. I am leaving taking with me the beautiful colours of the island, the amazing visit to the "heart of Osorio", the sound of "cuenco". Vicky and Jose engaging sense of humour and the tender eyes of Noa who helped me boost my confidence towards pets ( Wifi no yet, maybe next time or in another life! : ) 

    Thanks for taking care of us during this week!

    See you soon!

  • It's Friday, 31th May, when I arrive at the Gran Canaria airport happy or apparently happy. There Jose receives me with a smile from ear to ear, I get doubts, fears, really I was in a safe place? strangely Jose treats me as if he were my own father.

    I arrive with clear ideas, or apparently clear, I am an active person who likes active exercise and is healthy. I know Vicky, my Yoga teacher, I also smile from ear to ear and I wonder, how will she transmit so much light and positive energy.

    I think yoga is for quiet people who do not need a lot of activity, I'm afraid that I do not burn the calories needed in the day but how wrong I was. ..

    Days go by and I begin to see how something changes within me, I am agile, light, calm, alive, I begin to be aware of my body, but ... why now? It is not the first time I practice yoga! Easy: we unite nature + family + yoga and get the answer.

    Last day I wake up with the need to practice yoga, it gives me life, I think about continuing to practice it every morning. Thank you Vicky for your teachings.

    The walk through the Finca de Osorio teaches me to enjoy the road, the rush is not always good, it reminds me of my childhood when I wanted to become an explorer. Thanks to Jose for teaching me to enjoy the way and to relive the girl in me.

    Thanks to all the warriors people that have with me in this adventure.

  • I have never believed in coincidences but rather that every encounter and place that appears on your path has a reason, a teaching, a purpose, you just have to be attentive to find it.

    It is not original what I will tell you but I have felt very comfortable in your home. I had the most important things, good food, good wine, tranquility, history and nature. My body has returned to feel the benefits of yoga and now it is my job to keep them.

    I've had the luck (that I do not believe in it either) to stay with a group of very nice girls with whom to share moments and stories and in my case to open myself to listen to the life from a different perspective, to respect and to work the humility. That's wath I learn. I've learned a lot from all of you, thank you!

  • A place of serenity, this is exactly what La Tejana is.... Seven days have gone by so quickly thanks to Jose and Vicky. I have been made to feel welcome in your home and treated with such kindness, compassion and warmth.
    Jose, you are an amazing chef! Vicky the best yoga teacher ever!!
    I came here stressed, I leave relaxed and focused.
    La Tejana is more than a Yoga retreat. It's like staying with friends with a few yoga lessons thrown in.
    Thank you so much Vicky, Jose and Elena. May you have plenty more visitors in the months and years to come.

  • So much time I had been planning an experience like this, where I could connect with my interior. Finally I found the time and all the anxiety that came with coming to La Tejana and specifying what I postponed so much that they say that what is good makes you wait and comes when you are ready to receive it.

    No doubt I will go home serene and connected, so full of beautiful conversations with Vicky, Jose, Elena, Noah and Fiona. I felt like at home, we did Yoga, we danced, we walked, we laughed, we brought ideas and above all, a lot of respect.

    Thank you for this experience that will undoubtedly be the start of many projects and things to be done in this near future.

    I wish you a good life and thanks  from my heart for this experience.

    See you soon!

    Thank you Helen for those beautiful walks, those walking chats and that natural sympathy.

    Thank you guys for opening your home and your heart to adventurous travelers like me who hope to find themselves and what they find are magnificent people that I will never forget. You are special.

  • My holidays in Las Palmas are usually  full of activities that they can being stressful. These have been my first holidays to rest and I really disconnect in a very long time. Thank you for treating me like a queen (or better!) And at the same time as a lifelong friend. Thank you for the love and positive energy that brought me back home. Thanks for the yoga, for the walks, for the walk in Guayadeque (Vicky, the next time we will go to La Caldera!) and for the "Sancocho" with the family, which meant a lot to me. Thanks also for helping me rediscover my island after so much time living out.

    I wish you much success with this wonderful project. Keep healing the world because it needs it.

    La Tejana

    Dear Jose,

    Thank you very much for this wonderful week in La Tejana !. When I arrived here I was very stressed and now I'm going home feeling much lighter and with much joy.

    It has been a pleasure to meet you and meet this beautiful island. I loved it and I hope to see you again in Gran Canaria or in Switzerland.

    With much love for Fiona and Noah too.

    La Tejana
  • With grief and joy at the same time, it's my last night in La Tejana.

    Thank you Vicky, Jose, Noah and Fiona for opening your door and a piece of your heart. It is clear that I will remember forever my "first retreat" and in the Canary Islands. It has far exceeded what I was looking for !.

    Some wonderful yoga classes. Vicky, you transmit a lot of peace, harmony and with your sympathy and that beautiful smile you make one forget all the tensions that we had whe we arrived.

    Jose, you have a gift for cooking and you see that you like it and you enjoy it. It has been a pleasure every dish that you prepared us.

    Your sympathy and your good knowledge of guidance have made the excursions were learning, laughter and was for all a set of very good experiences. My group of "Las Magnolias" ... no words !!!

    A big kiss!

    La Tejana
  • Thank you for hosting me at your home. You made me feel like I was in my own home.

    I hope that the feelings of this place and family accompanies me for many days and that you always keep it.

    See you soon!

    La Tejana
  • Vicky, Jose and Elena, thanks for all! It has been a big pleasure for all my senses to share this week in your home.

    The experience has far exceeded the expectations. The family atmosphere and the magic of every night enveloped me and I felt sheltered in every moment of my stay. The places of the island, the walks on the beach, the Heart of Osorio are very good memories that I take with me to my home.

    The discovery of different disciplines in yoga (The Nydra is my favorite !!), the karaoke crazy night, visit the villages with Elena and of course the "Shallow group". There is one thing that I have become clearer every day: Travel enriches the soul, but what makes these trips great experiences are the people with you share those moments. Thank you for letting me enjoy a little of your home and your wonderful island. You are great people separately but together you are extraordinary.

    La Tejana
  • It has been a week to keep a lot of time in me. It has been a big pleasure to share with you a lot of impressions and different sensations, special, the most unforgettable, the laughs ...

    I felt at home since you picked me up at the airport (Jose, don't ever change your smile and that Andalusian humor!).

    Vicky, you entered fully to the most hidden place of me where only few persons can get to do it, I leave it there. I brought my backpack full and it goes very very light and I thank you !!!!

    Elena, your company has been a pleasure and let us guide through the island with your very friendly way.

    Thanks guys for crossing my way. Hope the light show you the way.

    Kisses to everyone.

    La Tejana
  • Vicky, Jose and Elena.

    Where to start? So many things to say, right?

  • If in fact I had any expectations for this weekend, it has been overcome. I have felt at home.
    I thank Vicky and José for having decided to start this "business" in Gran Canaria, the island where I live, so I can enjoy it more often. And I write "business" in quotes because, from the heart, I have not felt it this way, but really a place of rest and relaxation in nature.
    And by the way, for more more ... the kitchen is too great.
    Thanks from my heart.

    Patricia Otero
    La Tejana
  • Thank you for making me feel at home, even better!
