- Learn to listen to the silence.

- Pay attention to the action of walking and everything which is involved physically; movement, breathing, and sensations.

Yoga asana classes. They are progressive, variations for different levels of practice and particular limitations are always offered.

Meditative Hiking: Daily 90 minute meditative walk in nature, opening the senses and developing mindfulness.
Twice a week will be entirely dedicated to meditative trekking, starting just after breakfast and coming back for dinner. It is a perfect opportunity to enjoy the wonders of the the Ordesa National Park or surrounding areas. Swim in the river, meditate or relax in nature. Those days, because of the excursion there will be a restorative yoga class in the afternoon.

Karma Yoga: skillfulness in action. Let yoga support us in all we do. At Casa Cuadrau, we invite you to practice karma yoga by helping in simple tasks in the house like cooking, cleaning or gardening for 1 hr./day in a mindful, bodiful, senseful integrated way.
All activities are optional and can be modified to suit the group. To get the most of your stay, we recommend that you participate in all scheduled activities.

Satsang is a gathering time. It starts with a time for discussion and inquiry, questions and answers based on the direct experience of all participants, followed by meditative singing to give some rest to the mind. It finishes with a silent meditation.

All activities are optional and can be modified to suit the group. To get the most of your stay, we recommend that you participate in all scheduled activities.

-How to get here? We can provide transport from Ainsa to Vio on the first day of the retreat, and from Vio to Barbastro on the last day.
-What to bring to the retreat?
-Yoga retreats are undertaken in a toxin-free environment with no tobacco or alcohol.

Everyday from the end of the evening Satsang up until after lunch the following morning, we cultivate joyful silence in the house. This deep silence is very healing for calming the mind and being in peace with ourselves, allowing us to deeply listen to ourselves. We will have a restful sleep and the next day we will enjoy the silence with mental clarity during our asana practice, meditation and other activities. Meals will be taken mindfully and in silence. By participating in this period of joyful silence we will be supporting each other in our practice.

After lunch and throughout the afternoon we will enjoy conscious speaking and deep listening, which will allow us to get to know each other in a more authentic way.



Daniel Benito Po is the Director of Casa Cuadrau. Dani is a yoga and meditation instructor and mountain guide, as well as an ecological builder. From a young age Dani felt deeply connected to the mountains and it was in the Pyrenees and the Himalayans where he discovered hiking to be a powerful meditation practice and a way of deepening his connection with nature. Having studied technical architecture in Barcelona, Dani worked in the construction and theatre industries, and also as a yoga instructor.

He was introduced to Butoh Dance, Body Weather and other movement-based practices under the guidance of Carme Torrent and Andrés Corchero, among other teachers. Following several consecutive trips to India, he completed his yoga teacher training with Bharat Shetty (RYT 500). Dani’s meditation practice is based on Buddhist teachings received from Tich Nath Han (Zen) and S.N. Goenka (Vipassana). He has also developed his own open meditation practice with Open Dharma.

In 2009, Dani moved to Vió to realise the dream he had been harbouring since 2006 of rebuilding and restoring a traditional Pyrenean building and turning it into a Yoga, Art and Nature retreat centre. A place where the practices he is passionate about can be shared.


Katya Rios found in Yoga a way of life, a system for self exploration providing her with constant support on her path. When she arrived in Vio she rediscovered her love and devotion for nature, aswell as a path on which she can continuously learn from her and be in tune with her.

In January 2009 she got her teachers’ training certificate from the International Sivananda Vedanta Organization and later, after having spent 3 years working in the yoga centers and ashrams of same organization in Buenos Aires, Toronto and Quebec, she took an advanced teacher training course in India (500 RYT).

In early 2014 Katya underwent further asana training with Bharath Shetty and got a 500 RYT teaching certification (Hatha-Yoga, Vinyasa and Therapeutic Yoga), she continues deepening in yoga asanas with Boris Georgiev and Bharath Shetty. She also studies philosophy with James Boag, meditation and mindfulness from Thich Nhat Hanh teachings and Open Dharma.

Katya enjoys teaching beginners and seniors, offering classes for all levels, in which each of them can feel confortable practicing at their rhythm and condition.
