about your trip
*Please note –
We recommend taking an overnight flight to Malaga, Seville, or Madrid on Sunday night April 12, arriving in Spain on Monday morning the 13th. From your arrival city you can then take a train or bus to the smaller town of Ronda where we will arrange transport for you to the Yoga Retreat Center.
Malaga airport can be reached from the United States and from any main European airport. There is a large selection of European budget airlines that offer daily flights to/from Malaga (for example, Ryanair.) You can take the train from Malaga to Ronda or from Sevilla to Ronda, where a pick-up can be arranged for you.
You can also fly into Madrid and either take the train to Ronda or fly into Malaga or Sevilla and arrange a transfer from there. You can take a train from Madrid to Ronda, however the train ride is 5-6 hours +. If you choose this option a transfer from Ronda can be arranged (see the transfer fees below). In additional, there are daily buses from Sevilla, Jerez or Malaga that stop in El Gastor.

If you are intending to arrive into Andalucia early or to stay for a few extra days, we highly recommend spending a day or two in Sevilla. This beautiful old city has an abundance of excellent Spanish restaurants and interesting places to visit, including its famed cathedral. Sevilla is a 1.5 hour drive from the yoga centre. Transport to or from Sevilla will be arranged on request (see transfer prices below).
*We highly recommend travel insurance*
