One of the most exotic and diverse countries in all of Europe, Spain is known for its relaxed lifestyle, great weather, tasty cuisine, vibrant nightlife and stunning beaches and islands. Add to this the beautiful landscapes and numerous historic sites and it’s no wonder why it’s such a popular destination. It also happens to be Europe’s top choice for a yoga holiday, with more yoga retreats in Spain than all other European countries combined.

The Alhambra, one of Spain’s most famous sites.

There are so many amazing yoga retreats in Spain to choose from that it can be a bit overwhelming to know which one to go for. It’s more important then ever to research and read reviews before you travel to a yoga retreat.
