Diverse, vibrant and historical, Spain features some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Over 5,000 Kilometers (3,100 miles) of gorgeous beaches, with nice weather all year round, are home to some of the best yoga retreats. 

Spain is the second most visited country in Europe and is constantly listed among the top 3 yoga destinations. From sandy beaches to sophisticated cities, medieval country houses and paradisiacal islands, you can find almost any kind of vacation here. And the best part is that you don’t have to break the bank as there are tons of affordable yoga retreats in Spain throughout the entire year.

Spain’s cultural heritage is vast; renowned artists like Antoni Gaudí, Pablo Picasso, Juan Miró and Salvador Dalí, to mention a few, are all from Spain. The Spanish cuisine is delicious –there’s nothing quite like tapas or paella with a glass of the nicest wine on Earth–, and the folklore adds to the colorful atmosphere with flamenco and plenty of fiestas.

Going back to yoga, did you know that Spain was one of the first European countries to open its doors to this practice? People started doing it during the first half of the 20th century and, since then, it’s been a love story between the two of them. Although in the beginning it was reserved for intellectuals and hippies, today is a well-established form of physical and spiritual exercise.

According to a study by Instituto Sondea, 28.9% of the Spanish population practices or has practiced yoga at some time in their life and the main reason they did it was to reduce stress. More than 90% of the current practitioners say they feel better since they started doing yoga.

There’s no doubt that Spain is a great place to go on a yoga vacation! So, without further ado here are five yoga retreats in Spain that are a real bargain:
