A country of stunning natural beauty, blessed with glorious year-round sunshine, vibrant culture, and delicious cuisine, it’s no wonder that Spain is one of the most visited countries in Europe.

Thanks to the increasing numbers of world class yoga retreats and yoga teacher training courses, it also constantly ranks among the top three yoga destinations in the world.

You have access to a vast variety of yoga vacations in this gorgeous Mediterranean country.

That said, if you are looking to enhance your yoga practice or plan to start teaching yoga, there are plenty of quality yoga teacher training courses in Spain to choose from, spread across the beautiful mainland, and its stunning islands.

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.


Top Destinations for Yoga Teacher Training Courses in Spain


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.



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.

Its atmosphere and popularity have attracted yoga teachers from all over the world. You’d be practicing your asanas guided by top-notch instructors in a stunning setting. What else could you wish for?



One of the most popular cities in Europe and the jewel of Spain, Barcelona is home to world-class museums, cultural landmarks, and excellent beaches.

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.



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.


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.

But it’s not all sand & sun here. There are 42 UNESCO World Heritage sites in Andalusia, including the incredible Alhambra complex, the historic center of Cordoba, and Granada.
