See Yoga Holidays is an invitation to enjoy. We are located at the beach in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain), a place known for its all year long summer. We want to give you the opportunity to let yoga be your daily companion, merge into the Canarian lifestyle, meet new people, connect to Nature and have a time for yourself.
See Yoga Holidays is an invitation to leave your “musts” behind and just live your holidays as you please. We want to give you what we love, so we offer you daily yoga classes and all sort of activities to discover Gran Canaria, experience something new or simply relax and chill. Your non yogi partner will also have its place and you will be able to enjoy both your yoga practice and the pleasure of sharing. Because we believe that above all, the best way to be healthy is to be happy.
In See Yoga Holidays all levels and reasons for practicing yoga are more than welcome. During the classes, you will always be encouraged to listen to your body and let it be your guide. We will suggest you all sorts of modifications that will help you to build up your own practice and deepen into it. Classes will naturally change from one yoga style to other (Vinyasa flow, Hatha, Yin, Kundalini) depending of the time of the day and the energy of the group. All our teachers are qualified by the Yoga Alliance and have wide experience in other fields (reiki, alternative therapies, art, dance, meditation). Indoor and outdoor yoga practices will be combined. The yoga lessons are held either in a cousy studio 5min walking from your acomodation, enjoying the brise of the ocean in a rooftop or in the Nature after small walks through amazing landscapes.
We offer you different daytrips around the island to enjoy of the amazing volcanic landscapes and guide you through an authentic local experience.

Laura De Pedro
Yoga Teacher and Manager
Nomad. This was Laura's favorite word until she felt in Gran Canaria the place that she could call home. For ten years, she worked as a biology researcher and professional photographer, always trying to find the way to connect and be closer to Nature. Following her intuition and shutting down her fears, she allowed her work to change as she also changed.
This constantly moving lifestyle make her need to find a way to connect to her body, release and listen. Dancing was a tool that she learned when she was a child and for years it was her way to explore into the body language. Listening to what the body has to say was her healing medicine. She was initiated in first and second level of reiki usui to start exploring with the movement of energy throughout the body. When she first try yoga in 2006, she finally found the serenity she needed in her everyday life.
She decided to be a Certified Yoga Teacher (Yoga Alliance) to start gratefully giving something in return to what yoga gave her. That gentle way to enjoy the present moment, awaken your body, calm your mind and delightfully listen. Nowadays, she is being trained in the Afroyin Method, to continue evolving and working from the dance, the body language and its natural movement. In her classes she applies her knowledge of anatomy to lead you through a personal, safe and healing practice. She combines Vinyasa flow, Hatha and Yin yoga, together with pranayama and meditation techniques to take you through a playful practice, where you will only have to breath and enjoy the journey.
Yoga has helped Marta to see how beautiful the world is the way it is. After studying and working 12 years in the fashion industry, in January 2014 she quit her job and traveled around Central America. She was tired of the industry and she needed a break to find balance again and go back to her own essence.
She had already practiced yoga many years before from a physical perspective but it was not till she began her travel that she started to connect with the yoga’s philosophy and ended living in an ashram of Sivananda lineage in the Bahamas for a few months. Since she arrived to the ashram she felt like home, everything was making sense on there. The concept that yoga means union was making more sense than ever. She connected her past self with her present self and together with the Universe. It was in the ashram where she decided to deepen into her practice doing the Certified Teacher Training and since then she teaches Vinyasa, Hatha and Yin Yoga combined with sound relaxation techniques and meditation.
Listening to her heart and keeping discipline day to day were two of the most important things that she learnt with her own yoga practice. In her classes she invites you to practice yoga with love from a creative and free perspective, without judging, and without hurting yourself. Reminding that there is no perfect practice and no perfect asana. The perfect asana is where you are today.
Yoga means for Katia as the word says, union of body and soul. Yoga has taught her to listen to the body and make it one with the mind, to meditate and connect with her true self.
Her creative spirit led her to study Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona. Art for her was a way of expressing her inner world, the reflections on which her art projects were based helped her to learn more about herself. He lived in several cities until life took her to Copenhagen, where he worked in the marketing department of a travel agency. It was at that point where she started to practice yoga to improve her health and the beginning she attended the classes more by willpower than by true desire. Until there came a time when she started to undestand and yoga catch her. She wanted to know more about this discipline and traveled to India, where she trained as a yoga teacher in the ashram of the Vinyasa Yoga Foundation in Rishikesh.
Her classes are dynamic and vigorous, based on Vinyasa Flow and Hatha, depending on the conditions and the interests of the group. Both yoga and art have been for her two basic tools for personal growth. Currently, she combines both techniques in children's workshops to teach the next generations valuable techniques of expression and connection to the self.
Leydi U.: "Practicing yoga with Laura is a totally new experience. Is fascinating how we connect so much with her. Thank you for being in our lives!"
Rowan D.: "Practicing yoga in See Yoga, especially in the beautiful setting of Las Palmas was amazing. I did classes both in the very serene and nurturing environment of the studio, and a couple of early morning sessions on the rooftop. The combination of Laura's calm voice together with the lapping waves of the ocean below was just heaven. Loved Laura's yoga style and lovely personality"
Christine L.: "Yoga in See Yoga makes you feel like home. It is a comfortable journey you understand. I'm definitely repeating the experience ASAP! Thanks"

I still remember those moments of our sessions on the rooftop, looking at the sky and listening to the sound of the ocean. So pure and real. Miss it a lot while doing yoga at my hometown in gyms and other places... and looking forward to be back again in Las Palmas and experience those amazing moments one more time! Thank you Laura!"
