About Finca Argayall
Finca Argayall is one of the best kept secrets of the Canary Islands. This magical venue on the unspoilt island of La Gomera, sits nestled in the cliffs in a secluded bay. With a spectacularly diverse landscape. The contrast of the rainforest, unspoilt beaches and small fishing towns makes a visit to this island a full and rich experience.
The venue itself runs as a community and welcomes others to experience and respect this beautiful and unique life. There is an organic farm, tropical gardens, a natural spring, two swimming pools and the beach a few steps away.
A wonderful opportunity to take some luxurious time for yourself, to restore and nourish mind, body and soul in the truly healing environment of La Finca. There will be two 90 minute yoga classes each day, suitable for all levels and yoga experience. There will be one yoga free day.
The daily programme
Ceri will offer two sessions each day. The morning practice will gently open the body and attune the mind to the breath, slowly moving and building into a flowing and dynamic sequence.
There will be time set aside in the day to explore and take in the stunning beauty of the surroundings, relax by the pool or dip into the sea just a few steps away. The group will meet again in the late afternoon for a more gentle and restorative class.
The holiday is suitable for all levels of ability. There will be one yoga free day. Please note that due to the unique set up at La Finca, you will also have an opportunity to join their own programme should you so wish. This might include: silent meditation, shamanic dance or even more yoga - a wonderful opportunity to open up and explore!
Things to do
Throughout each day you will be offered three organic vegetarian meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Apart from one evening when we can go into the nearby village to taste the culinary delights offered locally. In the village you can also book to go mountain biking, dolphin watching and kayaking. There are plenty of walks on offer on this beautiful island, from traditional fishing villages to rain-forests, banana plantations and secluded sandy beaches.
Or you might just want to stay within the beauty of the venue itself, relaxing by one of the two pools or simply take a few steps onto the beach and go for a swim in the warm, blue sea. Treatments such as massage and homeopathy are also available at an additional cost.

“The retreat was absolutely transformative for me. The Finca Argayall is a magical place. Staff were so wonderful, and all the food was nutritious and delicious. I had no stomach issues from any of the food or water. My accommodations were spectacular, and I felt safe and welcomed.
This was my first time attending a yoga retreat, and I really had no idea what to expect. Ceri is an incredible teacher. She has a warm heart and exudes kindness; she led the group through a powerful emotional journey and adapted the practice to help guide everyone through their own process. We had a challenging group, both in that a number of attendees were yoga instructors themselves but also because I think everyone came to the retreat really wanting to work on an aspect of themselves.
I brought home with me an open heart and a clear head, which is something I really wanted to get from the retreat. I've taken a few classes since being home, and have incorporated a number of things Ceri taught the group into my own practice.
Thank you again for being so understanding of my travel issues. I know my last minute emails from delayed flights wasn't ideal, but with your help and with phone calls from Grace at The Finca – everything turned out great!”
“I booked this as a last minute trip and I’m relatively new to yoga and was my first retreat. This exceeded my expectations and I loved the unique location for its magical and tranquil atmosphere. The fresh food grown on site was delicious every meal. Ceri is a fabulous and engaged teacher who taught me lots to kick start my yoga journey. I would not hesitate to recommend and return.”
“Absolutely loved my yoga holiday in La Gomera last week. Wonderful location lovely people and a fantastic teacher! Ceri was so lovely and knowledgeable. I really loved the whole experience.”
