Yoga Retreats in Sierra de Gredos - El Pagano Retreat Center.


Since 2015, we have been conducting Yoga retreats in the Sierra de Gredos. This particular retreat takes place at Casa Rural El Pagano. El Pagano is a rural center designed to immerse travelers in a natural environment perfect for birdwatching, observing mammals, and enjoying numerous floral species.

Led by a dedicated team consisting of Manuel, Paqui, Scot, and all the cooks and volunteers who have become part of the Matrika Yoga School family over the years.

We offer a strictly vegetarian diet and have experience catering to intolerances and allergies (gluten, veganism, etc.).

The rooms are highly comfortable and all have exterior views.

We provide accommodation in shared rooms for 2 – 3 people. There is a very limited availability for single occupancy rooms.
