Yoga is one of our favourite activities and we find that 8.15 is a good time, not too early, before breakfast and before it gets too hot! You really appreciate the healthy breakfast after your senses have been awakened. Often we find that couples come to us with him being into sporting activities while she is keener on yoga and the various therapies on offer. Quite often the activity enthusiast discovers the joys of yoga and finds the stretching and relaxation it a powerful complement to aerobic and power exercise. We have a well appointed gym in the vicinity with all the work out machines you could possibly want. For a token sum you can join for the day and enjoy the pool, Jacuzzi and sauna too. This club has excellent tennis courts, tennis lessons and training, with a show court for big matches.
Our island is a mecca for fitness enthusiasts of all descriptions, with La Santa sports centre on the northern coast of Lanzarote. Lanzarote also hosts the Iron Man event in May, part of a world series for people mad enough to do a major swim, cycle round the island and a half marathon one after the other. The frequent breezes are popular with hang gliders and kite surfers. Surfers also congregate for international competitions although the amateurs are well catered for with many experienced surfing schools who include a wet suit and a board in with your deal. Famara beach is great for learning as there is always a suitable swell. Body boarders enjoy it there. Body surfing is something you can do as a complete novice and you don’t have to go in beyond waist height. Our water is enterable all the year round. Those of you used to the seas of northern Europe will be pleasantly surprised.
There is an 18 hole golf course on Lanzarote and a practice driving facility not far away but excitingly, there is a new championship course being built within walking distance of Villa Isis. The new golf course is due to open in December 2005
