Yoga Retreat
with Surinder Singh
Gredos Mountains, Spain.

This retreat is a unique opportunity to learn and practice throughout 4 days in Spain with the best yoga teacher of Rishikesh, Surinder Singh. Just 2h away from Madrid.

Some days to stay close to the mountains, focused on going deep into yoga practices, shared with presence and dedication by one of the most authentic and loved representatives of yoga tradition these days. 

Founder and director of “Swasti Yoga” studio in Rishikesh, Surinder welcomes thousands of students from all around the world every year, in his teacher training courses and classes, workshops, masterclasses and yoga retreats in different countries. His great knowledge about raja/hatha yoga, his dedication to each student, his accuracy in alignment and the spiritual sense that permeates all his teachings make him an outstanding teacher, world wide known. 

The retreat program combines long sessions of hatha yoga that will include the typical and unique explanations and adjustments of Surinder, with biomechanics workshops, yoga philosophy satsangs, pranayama, questions and answer sessions and yoga nidra.

We’ll also have time for ourselves, to know each other, share and rest. Each day we’ll go walking in the forest to the surrounding natural pools, to refresh ourselves with pure water and absorb the benefits of nature in this beautiful place. We’ll discover the richness and silence of the forest, magical sunsets in the mountains and the infinity of stars above our heads.

High quality, vegetarian, conscious and sattvic food will be an important part of the retreat as well. 

This retreat is open to anyone who wishes to go deep in the teachings of Hatha Yoga, regardless of his previous experience, although we recommend having a previous and regular practice.


Surinder Singh

Surinder Singh teaches hatha yoga – a combination of yogasana, pranayama and meditation– in the atmosphere of cordiality and support. It is this atmosphere and energy, and its vastly positive effect on practice that the master’s students notice and come back for, year after year. Being a mechanical engineer by education, Surinder integrates principles of mechanical physics into his teaching practice thus turning them into bio mechanics of asana alignment and adjustment as well as of yoga practice as a whole.

Surinder Singh was initiated in the tradition of yoga by his teacher and guru Sri Swami Dharmananda, the then superior of Ved Niketan Asram in Rishikesh. Swami made no mistake. Today, Surinder Singh is the most popular yoga teacher in the world’s capital of yoga. Thousands of yoga practitioners from all over the world call Surinder Ji their main teacher. Surinder Singh is immensely popular in Russia through his teaching at Swasti Yoga.

In his classes at the Academy, Surinder Singh teaches general yoga practice, mass adjustment in a class setting, gives workshops on asana alignment and adjustment, and tunes his students into the “real yoga” – yoga of Compassion and Action

Share this oportunity with us


We will go to the region of La Vera, located in the South – East of Sierra de Gredos, where we’ll be able to immerse ourselves in nature and the purity of its natural pools and gorges water. Just two hours away from Madrid city, but with the feeling of being very far from its bustle.

Tierra de Budas will be our home during these days. A modern retreat centre, built only 3 years ago, equipped with the facilities of a rural hotel.

Located in a land with more than 13 hectares of oak woods, junipers, strawberry trees and pine forests, with views to Gredos mountains, and 15 min walking from one of the most special natural pools of Garganta Minchones.

We chose this centre – run by a buddhist community, but open to people with different beliefs, looking for resting and nature – because of its special atmosphere of tranquility, silence and privacy (neither the activities, nor the teachers of this retreat are connected to buddhism, but we respect it and we value its teachings)

We will have spacious, modern and comfortable triple and double rooms, with daily cleaning service. All of them have their own ensuite, air conditioning and high quality beds, that will provide us with good resting time and comfort. 

Classes will be taught in a 120m2 yoga shala, with air-conditioning and wooden floors.

The food will be vegetarian, home-made, cooked with excelent quality ingredients and local products by a healthy food expert chef.

 A unique space to practice, meditate, connect with nature and rest. 

How to get here?

The retreat centre is located 2 hours away from Madrid, specifically 3km away from Villanueva de la Vera village (north of Cáceres), and 6km away from Ávila province.

If you don’t have your own car or you prefer to use public transportation, you can get there easily by bus. Samar transportation company covers the route Madrid – Villanueva de la Vera, with several buses every day departing from Estación Sur (Méndez Álvaro) and from Príncipe Pío. Once at Villanueva de la Vera, it’s just a 10 min taxi ride (we will give you the taxi driver’s phone number).

You can also tell us which is you city and we’ll put you in contact with other participants sharing places at their cars.

Please, have in mind the times for check- in and check out indicated in the program to organise your trip. As a sing of respect to the teacher, we ask you to organise your trip so you arrive before the introduction to the retreat and leave after the closing.

No bookings allowed for spare days or less days than the 4 established.



This retreat is an extraordinary opportunity for people with a regular and constant yoga practice, including yoga teachers.
