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
The morning class will gently open the body and attune the mind to the breath, the class will slowly move and build into a flowing and dynamic sequence, always incorporating the cultivation of awareness, physical alignment, breath and the chakras (energy centres).
The afternoon sessions will take us deeper into the chakra system as a means of recognising our gifts and shadows. This awareness will support our Sankalpa - the setting of an intention for the year ahead. Through powerful kundalini kriyas, chanting, meditation and guided rest, we will hear the true messages of our hearts, light up our intuition, and ignite the fire in our bellies, ready for action!
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. 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 rainforests, 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.
There is a selection of uniquely designed rooms. The terrace rooms with a garden view are quiet, comfortable and prettily decorated with a shared shady veranda that overlooks the tropical gardens. Bathroom facilities are close-by and shared.
The charming and comfortable garden huts are spacious and airy with a private seated area outside. They are set in the lush green gardens with the serene sounds of bird song and the sea.
The pyramid and A-frame are both well furnished little houses with a double bed in this paradise garden with a sitting space outside. The pyramid is ideal for a couple sharing and the A frame is perfect for single occupancy. All garden accommodation has plentiful shared bathroom facilities nearby.
The terrace rooms with a sea-view have doors that open out onto a second shared veranda with stunning ocean views. These rooms have en suite bathroom facilities.
There are a very limited number of rooms for single occupancy.
I feel that to visit La Gomera you've discovered a haven, precious and rare. To smell the ocean and taste the salt in the air makes you feel as if you've heard the song of the island and your soul has been set free.Rebecca
I had an amazing time at La Finca. A truly magical place and the food was amazing. I met some wonderful people and the yoga practice with Kate was everything I knew it would be and more. She is such a special person and I feel blessed to have been able to spend time with her in such a wonderful setting. I will definitely recommend YOAS and hope to be able to book with you again soon.Jean
I am indeed very rested and rejuvenated. It was a really special week. Finca is incredible. The food was amazing - I couldn't have wanted more. Kate is a truly brilliant teacher - I feel I've been spoiled somewhat! And overall I think your service from start to finish has been excellent! So thank you very much.Helen

I found the venue to be excellent as was the food. I found Kate's teaching fantastic and she was very good at bringing a group together and holding the space. It felt a very safe environment to go deep into ones self. All in all I felt it to be an amazing experience on many levels and would not hesitate to book something with you again. I have been spreading the word already!!Natasha
I had a truly blissful time in La Gomera, it's such a beautiful, elemental environment to come back to yourself in. Kate was a brilliant teacher, genuinely inspiring and great at supporting the group and the whole blend of the week really worked. Thank you so much, I would definitely book with you again.Sally
This was a really wonderful trip. The accommodation was great. I didn't feel like a guest in hotel but rather a welcome guest in Finca's community. The food was plentiful and delicious. Regarding the teaching / yoga practice. Kate is the most amazing person who just radiates peace. I loved the practise and felt really quite sad when I had to leave a day early. I look forward to travelling on another trip with YOAS soon.John
Kate adds a magical dimension to all her teaching.Jennifer
