More than a retreat, this is your journey

Meditation

Experience a meditation holiday in the sun

Make some time for yourself on a meditation retreat with Azul. Be soothed by the sounds of the sea, inspired by the sunrise over volcanoes, and restore your mind to its natural harmony and peace with meditation.

Meditation is not just for the spiritually minded: it is a powerful tool to help us find balance in our busy lives. In just one week’s holiday at Azul, we can’t guarantee that you’ll discover enlightenment, but you will learn a variety of meditation techniques to start you on your way – all in a beautiful setting on the Canary Island of Fuerteventura.

Why a meditation holiday with Azul?

A meditation holiday with Azul allows you to dedicate some time to experience meditation in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, ultimately giving you the understanding, tools and motivation to make it a part of your everyday life.

Our meditation holidays are set on the beautiful island of Fuerteventura, both at our villa retreat and the Lotus Yoga Lodge by the beach. Enjoy plenty of time in between classes to soak up the sun, relax by the pool, swim in the sea, or take a yoga or Pilates class.

Our teachers come from a variety of different meditation backgrounds, so you will experience different approaches and exercises, allowing you to find a style that works for you. Whether you are a complete beginner or you have been meditating for a while, we will support you with guidance and practical pointers, allowing you to develop at your own pace.

Our meditations include:

  • Breath work
  • Guided meditations
  • Visualisation
  • Exercises for self-practice
  • Walking meditations
  • Fun and original meditations such as dance, movement-based and painting meditations.

With an open mind and heart you may just find the perfect meditation to keep you in a constant state of bliss – or at the very least to simply create some time and space for yourself.
