"Yoga and Meditation Retreats in Sierra de Gredos - Centro de Retiros El Pagano"

Since 2015, we have been organizing Yoga retreats in the picturesque Sierra de Gredos, with this particular event taking place at the welcoming Casa Rural El Pagano. This rural retreat was designed with the intention of immersing travelers in a natural environment perfect for bird watching, observing mammals, and experiencing diverse flora.

Guided by an exceptional human team, composed of Manuel, Paqui, Scot, and the entire team of chefs and volunteers who, after many years, have become a family for the Matrika Yoga School.

In our retreats, we take pride in offering a fully vegetarian diet, with experience in catering to various intolerances and allergies, such as gluten and veganism, among others.

The rooms, all with exterior views, provide an exceptional level of comfort. We offer accommodation in shared rooms for 2-3 people, with a very limited number of spots available for individual accommodation.
