    Two yoga classes daily with a different focus (inversions, twists, backbends, foreward bends, etc.) in each morning class and pranayama-based classes in the afternoons gave the week the perfect balance which left me feeling calm, relaxed and energised, not to mention free from aches and pains.

    Each morning class starts gently and builds towards one or two key, challenging postures. There is gentle flow throughout and a focus on connecting movement to breathing.

    Kat's program is carefully designed to gradually involve us in the practice of Yoga. I have been touched by the energy of those classes and I still feel myself floating...

    The vegetarian food was very good and very healthy.

    I loved Bilbao, Getxo, our walks, the beach, the warm water of the sea and that delightful terrace of Kat's house. Kat and Ruth were spectacular,I felt at home.

    To come back :).

    Hi Kat

    Sorry to have missed you this afternoon but I just wanted to say a massive thanks. It was such a great weekend; I haven't been so relaxed in a really long time. The food and hospitality were amazing and I really learned a lot about yoga.

    I hope everything goes well with the baby and the wedding!

    I had a lovely time in Getxo. I really liked my introduction to yoga and the food was fantastic.

    I highly recommend Bilbao Yoga Retreats. The setting, the food, the accommodation and the yoga was all perfect. As someone who has practiced yoga off and on for the past few years, more for fitness purposes than for any other reason, I found the retreat very enlightening. I particularly enjoyed learning about the yoga philosophies. It is exactly what I needed to balance my hectic, sometimes stressful life in London. I felt so refreshed and relaxed at the retreat that I didn't want to leave. I will definitely be back. Thanks so much Kat!

    What a beautiful experience! As a first time solo traveller and yoga beginner, this retreat was exactly what I was looking for. Kat is a fantastic teacher and takes the classes beyond just a physical practice, sharing a taste of the true meaning and purpose of yoga. The accommodation is so lovely and comfortable and Kat is the perfect host, so welcoming but offering the freedom to allow you to come and go as you please. And the food is Amazing! The location is also absolutely perfect with plenty on offer only a stroll away as well as super easy access to surrounding areas by train, including Bilbao which is only half an hour away, and a great surf beach even closer. All in all, I would highly recommend Kat’s retreat, and hope to join her again in the future.

    Wow! What a weekend! As a beginner yogi, I was slightly nervous about my first ever yoga retreat but I need not have been. Kat was the perfect hostess with the mostess. The house was beautiful and peaceful and the bed was so comfy. The shower was hard to get out of as it was so nice to ease the muscle aches. The food is delicious. Every morning we were served fresh lemon and ginger hot water before heading to the studio. The walk from the house to the yoga studio in the heart of Las Arenas was a lovely start to the day. The teachers (Kat, Amy, and Stewart) were superb and adapted the practice to all abilities and were so giving of their time, knowledge, and expertise, plus they were great fun to hang out with! I shan't forget Stewart's hilarious stories in a hurry. We had time to explore the area too. I recommend a walk along the seafront in Getxo and a glass of wine and some pinxos. I highly recommend Bilbao Yoga Retreats!

    Thank you so much for such a lovely and special weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed everything: the location, the gorgeous walk to and from the studio each day, being amongst such a lovely dynamic group of people, the yoga teachings, the wise and magical words spoken by you, Amy, and Stew in the classes, practicing yoga to live music (a first for me!), delicious food, getting away from my manic life in London for a few days, and taking some time out for me. I feel truly blessed to have had such a lovely experience and have returned to London feeling balanced and chilled. Thank you for making this happen! I can hand on heart say that it's the best retreat that I have been on to date. Keep doing what you're doing.

    I can't speak highly enough of this wonderful retreat. The yoga classes were fantastic, the food amazing, and a beautiful location. Couldn't ask for a more relaxing and stress free few days. Returned home feeling amazing.

  • Christy Goldsmith United Kingdom

    Bilbao Yoga Retreats

    Dear Kat, thank you very much for the most wonderful yoga retreat! I consider myself a yoga novice, so I had a little concern that it might be a bit much for me - but you and Will have such an encouraging and nurturing manner, we were all put completely at ease. You were a very gracious host too and I loved my 'princess' room. Keep dreaming. Love, Christy.

  • Rachel Carter United Kingdom

    Bilbao Yoga Retreats

    I can't recommend the Bilbao Yoga Retreat enough. Kat is a wonderful teacher and I felt very welcome in her home with her lovely family and Otto the dog! There was a great variety of yoga classes and meditation, which gave me the opportunity to really advance my yoga practice. There's also plenty of time to enjoy the sunshine, the beach, and beautiful Las Arenas and some really delicious food! I left the retreat with renewed confidence and some much needed inner peace. Will definitely be back next year!

  • Joanne McCabe United Kingdom

    Bilbao Yoga Retreats

    I went on my first yoga retreat three years ago and afterwards made a promise to myself to go on at least one every year, but I thought I wasn’t going to be able to afford one this year. Then I happened upon Kats website via an irresistible article online and boom, I was booking a budget flight to Bilbao within days. There is so much to be said for practicing yoga twice a day among a group of beautiful souls who have all found themselves together here, now, enjoying some magical, mindful group energy amid a backdrop of lush Spanish sun and scenic, sensory surroundings. Eating wholesome and lovingly prepared food, story-sharing, sipping wine on balmy evenings, cuddles with Otto the yoga dog, lemon and ginger tea to start each day, mindful walks along the seafront to share yoga practice in Kats cute Basque studio, and coffee afterwards in the quietly bustling squares of Las Arenas were all very welcoming. This retreat was just what I needed to re-calibrate before pouring myself back into my London life. I will forever remember completely surrendering to my mat on the final evening as British musician Adam Giles Levy provided the live soundtrack to our delicious Yin session and a thunderstorm gently rumbled up the minute he started strumming his guitar. When I returned to London, I went to practice in my favorite hot yoga studio and relished every moment, every rich breath, the fluidity of the postures. The teacher commented to me afterwards on my beautiful practice, breath, and open hips. I told her I was just back from retreat in Spain and we exchanged a serene, knowing smile. With Bilbao Yoga Retreats you'll not break the bank and your mind, body, and spirit will benefit just as much as they would on a longer, pricier trip - book one now!

  • Rebecca Morley United Kingdom

    Bilbao Yoga Retreats

    The retreat house literally felt like home, you felt the warmth and love from the moment the door was opened by the beautiful smiling Agnes. The layout was great and I loved the 'secret grotto'. The location was perfect just a couple of minutes’ walk from the metro station and a five to ten minute walk in the opposite direction took you to the beach. The daily schedule was perfect, a lovely walk along the sea to the studio followed by morning practice then we'd head home for a filling, tasty breakfast. Afternoons where usually spent on the beach or exploring the vibrant city of Bilbao, followed by an evening class and another delicious nutritious meal. The Friday night after dinner we went 'silent' until after the morning practice. The following day included a mindful walk along the seafront to the studio and was perfect! As a natural chatterbox, I thought I'd struggle but found the experience gave me real clarity and I loved it. The Saturday night Yin class was a real treat as we had the most amazing musician playing live throughout the class and the experience was really was magical. I loved teaching and sharing my experiences and knowledge with a wonderful group of people. I came home feeling recharged and full of gratitude. For me, this retreat and what Kat offers is perfect to unwind, recharge, learn, and share. I can't wait to return as a student, as a guest teacher, and most of all as a friend.

  • Laura Ormandy United Kingdom

    Bilbao Yoga Retreats

    I was quite apprehensive about the retreat as I have dipped in and out of yoga for the past five years and consider myself a 'beginner'. I was therefore a little worried about what the retreat might entail. I need not have worried as Kat and guest teacher Beca were truly amazing and instantly made me feel relaxed. The yoga classes were incredible and I have come away with increased awareness and knowledge of the history of yoga and the many different styles. When not practicing yoga, there was plenty of time to socialize, relax on the nearby beach, read a book, or jump on the metro into Bilbao to explore the fascinating city. It was also nice to recharge and just be in the moment. Each day began with a freshly squeezed morning cup of lemon and ginger tea followed by a lovely walk along the beach promenade to the yoga studio to begin our morning class. One of the walks was a silent, mindful walk helping me to still my mind which allowed for a deeper yoga experience. The food was divine; everything was fresh, plentiful, and tasty. I have come away inspired to explore more 'veggie' dishes and be more mindful of my diet and putting healthy foods into my body. The highlight of the weekend for me was practicing Yin yoga to the sounds of live acoustic guitar during a thunderstorm! It was a magical night and I felt very privileged to share that special experience with the rest of the group. I feel that I have come away with a tool kit to help me stay grounded and at peace with myself. I have been practicing Yoga Nidra each night which has helped me to have much improved sleep. I highly recommend this retreat, it is a fantastic way to relax, unwind, and experience great yoga. I cannot wait to come back again!

  • Ruth Louise Gordon United Kingdom

    This is my second yoga retreat I have been on with Kat and could not recommend them highly enough. I have just completed my final year at university and these retreats have really helped me with my high stress levels as a student with deadlines and exams always on my mind. Set in a beautiful location by the sea in the very unique and traditional Basque Country, Kat provides a range of yoga classes with different styles and pace to suit all. Moreover, Kat shares advice and tips on how to beat daily stresses and relax your mind, simple yet effective a methods that you can do at home, proving there's so much more to yoga than just physical exercise. I will definitely be returning to help with my stress levels as I commence my first year as a primary school teacher and for the amazing Spanish tortilla that everyone must try! Thanks for everything!

  • Karla Mclaren United Kingdom

    Bilbao Yoga Retreats

    I'm a clear fan of Kat's yoga retreats, having just returned from my second, on which I took a group of five friends with me. I work long and sometime stressful hours for a big charity in London, Amnesty International, I have a full social calendar and have found these retreats the perfect antidote to city life. The town where Kat lives is stunning and so relaxed; waking up every morning listening to the birds and breathing the fresh ocean air is bliss. I also love the fact that I don't have to think about a thing for three days, all food is prepared and as a vegetarian I am in heaven and already planning my next visit.

  • Alice Watt United Kingdom

    Bilbao Yoga Retreats

    This is my first ever yoga retreat and everything Kat is doing here is perfect. I have slept better than I have in a very long time thanks to the mix of yoga, meditation, and tranquil surroundings. The house is so beautiful and I felt instantly at ease. I think everyone should give themselves this kind of experience once a year. I am also chasing more and will let you have them when I have.

  • Scarlet Wildernk United Kingdom

    Bilbao Yoga Retreats website

    Kat's yoga retreat caters for anyone and everyone whatever your experience may be. Her beautiful house and lovely family make you feel so welcome, not to mention the food! The vegetarian meals are really creative and taste amazing, but I have to say my highlight was coming home to a gigantic breakfast spread of homemade granola, omelets, fruit, yogurt, and tasty local honey after a hard morning yoga session. You have the whole day free to see Bilbao, the Guggenheim museum, local food and clothes markets, and beaches and be back in time for the evening yoga session, a lovely relaxing dinner, and some meditation. I would definitely recommend this retreat to anyone yogi or not!
