  • Katya Rios

    Katya 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, as well as a path on which she can continuously learn and be in tune with herself and nature. In 2009, she got her teachers’ training certificate from the International Sivananda Vedanta Organization. Later, after having spent three years working in yoga centers and ashrams from the same organization in Buenos Aires, Toronto, and Quebec, she took an advanced teacher training course in India (500 RYT).

  • Daniel Benito

    Co-director of Casa Cuadrau, Dani is a yoga, meditation, and meditative hiking instructor and 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 theater industries, and also as a yoga instructor.

Casa Cuadrau is an ecologic Yoga, Art and Nature retreat center, in a majestic corner of the Ordesa and Monte Perdido National Park, Spanish Pyrenees.

    "The greatest thanks for the beautiful and touching experience of peace, love and energy we got to feel beeing able to connect so truly with nature and ourselves... and with others also. It has been great to be able to start working again with this innerpeace and attitude of thankfulness. I have the slow motion picture of clouds travelling on pyrenees mountain at Mondoto in my mind every day."

You really have thought about everything, beautifully balanced to enable enough freedom, as well as an opportunity to learn, and grow, and stop, and think, and reconnect. Thank you!"

    "This is the second time Ive been to Casa Cuadrau and Im already looking forward to going back again! I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone who wants to take some time out for themselves, to reconnect with their being or simply to relax and enjoy themselves and the special place that is Casa Cuadrau. The place, and the people who have created it, are filled with love and have a special way of sharing that love, not only through the practice of yoga asana, but also through simple tools to help you on your lifes journey. The classes are incredible, the hiking excursions are magnificent and filled with unexpected beauty, the food is healthy and delicious ... the whole experience is a sensory delight! The bird song, the flowing water, and the scent and colours of the abundant forests all fill your heart with energy and life, enabling you to breathe in harmony, serenity and fulfillment. THANK YOU DANI AND KATYA for making this weeks holiday a very special one. Although it is over now, the experience continues inside me and, right now, in this present moment, I am still enjoying the benefits."

    "I was like in a family of like-minded people with whom I felt all the time enriched, having, at the same time, the so much needed space for inner reflection and silence. Katya and Dani have created a wonderful place of self exploration and growth close to the grand master - nature - and within a community of people that are both wise and warm and above all, so authentic in their own yogic pursuit."

    " It is difficult to find words to describe the experience of our week in Casa Cuadrau. Before arriving I was a bit worried if I would cope with the intense programme, at the end of the retreat we did not want to leave!! The meditative walks in the morning were fantastic!Every day Daniel (who really loves nature and the mountains and canyons) would take us on different path, one more incredibly beautiful than the other And, Katya is a patient and skilled yoga teacher, she started with the basics which was exactly what I needed. Food was delicious, and not being able to access smart phone and computers was also a much needed detox.At the end we were all asked for feedbacks and suggestions in a very open and constructive manner, no dogmas at Casa Cuadrau, but lots of passion! On the last day we felt like we were leaving two friends we had known for years... "

    "My husband and I had never practiced yoga or meditation before going to Casa Caudrau, so you can imagine we were a little apprehensive after booking the retreat this May. With an open mind, we arrived at a stunning location and were welcomed by an amazing and inspirational team in Casa Caudrau. The combination of practicing meditation, trekking, yoga, silence, satsang, good eating and meditative walking will stay with us ever! After leaving the retreat, we have kept up a lot of these practices in our everyday lives (as well as trying out some of the recipes) and we wouldn't change a thing about the experience, it was inspirational and life changing! Both the retreaters and the karma yogis were truly inspirational, but above all, we offer a huge thank you to Katya and Dani who have opened their home and hearts and are passing on their knowledge and teachings of meditation and yoga. This is an experience I would recommend to anyone especially if you are new to retreats; it is truly a life changing experience!"

    "I cant say thank you enough for the retreat experience! It was obvious that so much love, care and attention has gone into the house, the restaurant, and retreats, and it is such a beautiful and special place that it was impossible not to enjoy and learn on the retreat, and come away with such a profound sense of happiness and well-being. Thank you for opening up your space for so many other people to benefit. I will certainly come again. "

    "Danny and Katya have created a truly wonderful experience in the stunning mountains of the Pyrenees. They, and their yogi helpers, are friendly, kind, full of happy energy and thoughtful as they guide you through yoga, hikes and meditation with the perfect balance of information and enjoyment. I enjoyed my stay immensely, feel refreshed and with new knowledge and smiles. Plus, the fresh food from their garden and those of the neighbors is so so good. A perfect week"

    "Go to Casa Cuadrau was one of my best decisions if not the best in this year so far. The location is absolutely fantastic, high in the mountains and part of a small remote village. The accommodation is perfect and the retreat itself was well-balanced. Enough free time to enjoy and enough guided activities to really feel youre being supported in your journey. The meditative walking in the morning was for me an additional attraction to sign up, and it was simply beautiful. The culmination was the two-day trekking, challenging but so rewarding. And Im not sure whether I just got lucky with the group, but it couldnt have been better. A wonderful week which brought me home full of energy again. I would recommend it to anyone who likes hiking and wants to retreat from regular life with daily doses of healthy food."

I got a great introduction to many aspects in a way that I can reasonably incorporate in my life. My time there was invaluable! Plus, the food was absolutely amazing. Thanks to Dani, Katya and the incredible staff for a truly wonderful experience."

    "My wife and I chose the intensive yoga and meditation retreat because we both wanted something to shift our individual practices. Mine being far less than my wifes, at only 1 hour before we came to Casa Cuadrau. The shift in Yoga happened and we both are still practicing most days, which has had such a profound impact on our lives. Our diet has changed and now we are vegetarian and we are both meditating daily. The shift for myself in meditation was very important to me because I used to meditate daily throughout my 20s but have not done so for the last 12 years nearly. A surprising thing that I was presented with, was my fear of mountain walking. This did however, present me with a new challenge and once overcome, I found a new love and confidence to walk in the mountains where I was at first too fearful to go. Overall, a wonderful experience which we have shared with many many people since our return and we look forward to our next Casa Cuadrau experience."

    "In July 2014 I had the privilege of spending a week at Casa Cuadrau on a Yoga, Meditation and Hiking Retreat. Casa Cuadrau is a truly magical haven set in a breathtaking landscape in the Pyrenees close to Monte Perdido. On arrival you immediately feel the energy, passion and generosity of spirit with which Dani and Katya have renovated the house in which to welcome people to do yoga, meditate and enjoy the sights and sounds of the very beautiful Pyrenees. The week was a perfect balance of yoga, meditation, swimming in clear blue rivers, singing and hikes which were brought to life by Danis extensive knowledge of the local area, its nature and its history. I cannot recommend Casa Cuadrau and Dani and Katya more highly. It is an environment full of support, love and laughter and I came away feeling calm, re-invigorated and with definite plans to return to this paradise again in the future."

    "Nestled in a beautiful spot in the Pyrenees, the magic of Casa Cuadrau was evident from the moment we arrived. For me, however, the thing that made the retreat experience so magical and unforgettable was the open and down-to-earth nature of the wonderful hosts, Katya and Dani. They passed on their yoga, meditation and hiking practices with patience and passion, tailoring the sessions to suit the needs and energy levels of the group. Nothing felt like a chore, and everything felt like an adventure. I couldnt help but come away inspired to integrate the principals of yoga into my everyday life. One of the most prominent images I am left with from the retreat is that of Katya and Danis infectious smiles which greeted us on the first day, radiating a warmth which tells you to make yourself at home. Casa Cuadrau is a home in every sense of the word and one which I intend to return to time and again."

    "My week at Casa Cuadrau was simply amazing! Escaping the fast paced city for a much relaxed experience in the mountains with views that cannot even be explained will be something i will never forget. Waking up early every morning didnt bother me when there was so much to do with the meditation, yoga and workshops, so much fun!The food was also incredible thank you Anna, Gara and Kelly simply amazing! My most enjoyable experience would probably be hiking the Ordesa National Park, very exhausting but very rewarding thank you Danny for your super long hikes. I will never forget the enchanting echoes of the cowbells that sounded like wind chimes amongst the picturesque mountains just incredible.This experience has taught me a lot about my mental and physical strength and endurance especially after hiking that huge mountain the view was the most rewarding and having lunch there was even better! I have learned a lot from this trip and can take what i have learned and practice in my own time so thank you so much Dani and Kalyani! Looking forward to my next visit already."
