Traveling to Spain in 2022

 

All passengers arriving in Spain by air or sea, including those arriving in transit to other countries, must complete a Health Control Form before departure and obtain their QR to present it at boarding and health controls on arrival in Spain.

Residents of European Union (EU), Schengen Associated States, Andorra, Monaco, The Vatican (Holy See) or San Marino, holders of a long-term visa issued by the EU or Schengen Associated State who are going to that country, as well as residents of some third countries are allowed entry.

As a member of the European Union, Spain uses the EU Digital COVID Certificate for intra-EU travel. The Certificate may be of three types (vaccination, diagnostic test, or recovery) and all are valid as long as they meet the following criteria:

  • As of February 1, 2022, the vaccination certificate will be valid from 14 days after the date of administration of the latest dose and will be valid up to 270 days from that dose. In order to continue the validity, the certificate must reflect the administration of a booster dose. Any vaccine authorized in the EU is accepted. Certificates with non-authorized vaccines are also accepted but the last dose administer must be of one of the authorized vaccines.
  • Certificates of a negative diagnostic test are also accepted. NAAT- nucleic acid amplification tests (e.g.: RT-PCR) must be taken within 72 hours of arrival in Spain; RAT-rapid antigen tests must be taken within 48 hours of arrival.
  • Recovery certificates are valid from day 11 after the first positive NAAT up to 180 days.

Passengers from other third-party countries (non-EU) that meet the criteria to enter Spain can travel as long as they meet the criteria of the EU Digital COVID Certificate.

In some Spanish regions, the certificate is used to access indoor bars, restaurants, and nightclubs, as well as large-scale events.

History of Yoga in Spain

 

Yoga & Spain have quite a long love affair. The practice was introduced in the country during the first half of the 20th century when yoga expanded beyond its eastern borders.

While it originally appealed to a handful of hippies and intellectuals, its popularity started to increase by the last decade of the last century.

Fast forward to today, Spain has become one of the best places to attend a yoga retreat or yoga teacher training course in Europe.

The entire country is magical and offers superb places to enhance your practice. But some destinations have distinguished themselves as perfect settings for sunrise Sun salutations, sunset meditations, and energizing practices.

Ibiza

One of the Balearic Islands, Ibiza has no rival when it comes to visiting Spain.

Quiet beaches, a charming Old Town, beautiful sunsets, mouth-watering cuisine, and vibrant nightlife make Ibiza as an excellent place for your yoga teacher training course.

The hills surrounding the city are home to farms and country houses. Many yoga teacher training courses take place in this area, allowing you to be away from the hustle & bustle of the city but close enough if you want to go sightseeing during your free time.

Valencia

The city blends the old monuments with the new modern buildings in a quite interesting way, creating a unique vibe. Between the vibrant sunsets, medieval merchant’s quarter, and futuristic sites, Valencia is a favorite among visitors.

The gorgeous weather and stunning beaches attract visitors – and yogis – from all over the world.

Many yoga teacher training courses take place in nearby villages so that you have the tranquility you need to enhance your practice. But you’ll also be a short ride away from both the beaches and the vibrant city.

Andalusia

Alhambra complex in Andalusia

The natural beauty and Moorish architecture make the Andalusia region as a great place to do your yoga teacher course.

Thanks to its location in southern Spain, Andalusia is blessed with mild winters which ensure a constant stream of visitors year-round. The main destinations in this region are Costa del Sol and the Sierra Nevada.
