Tai Chi and Qigong Holiday Retreat September 2019 on Spain's lesser known Canary Island, La Gomera
We will stay in the peaceful, tranquil, coastal town of Valle Gran Rey, which is located on the South West side of the island. Accommodation will be in a small self-catering apartment complex, by the sea. Each of these apartments has a sunny balcony, with one of the most amazing sea views in Valle Gran Rey! Ideal for watching a stunning sunset, while listening to the sound of the waves. For more details of this accommodation option, please click here.
There will be 2 Tai Chi/Qigong lessons most days - in the mornings and at late afternoon/early evening during the holiday, with a complete day off in the middle to give you complete freedom to explore the island or do whatever you like. Most of the Tai Chi/Qigong lessons will most likely take place outside on the beach. There will be plenty of free time to explore this fascinating unspoiled island, to practise the Tai Chi and Qigong that you've learned, or to enjoy the peaceful town of Valle Gran Rey. There will also be the option of joining in with some activities with the rest of the group, such as dolphin watching boat trips and walking.

La Gomera is one of Spain's Canary Islands and lies off the Western coast of Africa. It has virtually year round sunshine and is a short ferry ride away from Los Cristianos in Tenerife. This lesser known and more remote, unspoiled island has diverse, scenic landscapes and is ideal for nature-lovers and those wishing to explore the many hiking trails. It is a hiker's paradise! There are steep mountainous regions and deep valleys, causing this small island to have many micro-climates. It was originally formed through volcanic activity, although this ceased millions of years ago. The scenery is spectacular and it's possible to see how volcanoes have formed the island.
If we're lucky we may come across the fascinating and very unusual whistling language, 'El Silbo' which is totally unique to La Gomera. It is rarely heard on the island these days, however it's thousands of years old and shepherds used to use it to communicate with eachother down the valleys while miles apart. It is a complete language in itself and is protected and taught in schools to prevent it from dying out.
The Tai Chi and Qigong Relaxation Holiday Retreat will take place in the warm, sunny South West part of the island by the coast and there will be plenty of free time to relax, practise your Qigong, go on a dolphin watching boat trip or explore this fascinating island.

How do I get to La Gomera?
Getting to La Gomera is easy. Most people arrive by taking the ferry from Los Cristianos in Tenerife (fly to Tenerife South). The ferry takes approximately 50 minutes.
Ryanair and Easyjet both offer reasonably priced flights to Tenerife South from the UK and beyond. Jet2 also offers flights. The Skyscanner website is often a good site to look at to compare prices.
More details of how to get to La Gomera will be sent to you once you've booked up for the Holiday. Please feel free to also email or call Hazel if you'd like to discuss travel arrangements or would like to chat about the Holiday Retreat.
