Dhamma Neru Vipassana Meditation Centre
On the afternoon of June 22, 1999, the Spanish Vipassana Association purchased a building near Palautordera, about 35 miles Northwest of Barcelona, to serve as the first Dhamma centre in Spain.
Goenkaji has named it "Dhamma Neru", Dhamma Neru means "Heavenly Mountain of Dhamma".
The main building of Dhamma Neru is built on 4 sides of an open courtyard and sits in the middle of a flat 3,6 acres site surrounded by a high hedge and an abundance of fruit and ornamental trees.
The nearest village is Santa Maria de Palautordera about 1 km away. To the north there is the imposing 5700 feet high mountain of Montseny.
The site is approximately 1300 feet above sea level, only 30 minutes from the Mediterranean and enjoys a mild, sometimes rainy climate.

Yoga and Vinyasa
Yoga means Union. Is the internal state in which what we feel, what we think and what we do is in complete harmony. The main objective is to connect us with our essence, to remember who we are and where we are going. Clear up the mind, open up the body and living with your heart. The collateral benefits of yoga are relaxation, concentration, full breathing, flexibility and strength, but the goal is not physical perfection, but the inner peace. When there is unity there is also a connection with the environment. Yoga helps us to understand our mind and our inner selves and thus to better understand the people and situations around us. It is an internal tool that creates compassion and integrates us into the world.
The elements that we will practice in class are:
Hatha Yoga, cultivate the body so it is able to meditate. With the asanas (postures) we realese tension, become more flexible, tone and develop balance. They also have a direct effect internal organs, brining more oxygen, helping blood flow, cleaning, etc... By releasing physical tension and beeing compassionate with our body we also releasing emotional and mental.
Pranayama , cultivating our breath because it is the main source of life and we sure have a lot more ability to breathe than what we think. A full and wide breathing gives us more oxygen, good circulation, mental calm, concentration, silence... Silence with which we can begin to hear the inner voice that guides us. Breathing connects us directly to our essence.
Meditation, cultivating the mind to be aware of thoughts and how to act on them. As we distinguish and conquer our thoughts ee become more self conscious during the day to transform negative thoughts into positives. Awareness in the present moment allow us to be free in our decisions.
Dancing, body awareness adn distress through movement. The dance creates joy, fluidity and welfare. Heating the body and releasing our thoughts of the day, we return to the Present Moment.
Mantras, tool for the mind, sining mantras stimulates the expression of the heart, creativity, calms the mind and leads us to a state of meditation.

The Barcelona Yoga Weeks retreat centre was built in a big and beautiful modernistic house in the heart of Barcelona. The centre is located in a nice and quiet street, yet minutesâ€™ walk away from the central gothic neighbourhood and a 10 minute walk away to the beach of Barcelona. The building is one of the catalogued examples of the modernistic movement (Gaudiâ€™s movement) and was built in the year 1890. The building and the house has been conserved with all its magic features such as: Nolla colourful flooring, high and decorated ceilings, long and airy corridors, the iron works of the back facade and a smart distribution of the rooms allowing all of them to have access to outdoor spaces, such as internal patios or balconies. The building has the 1st elevator installed in the city, also dated 1890, a magnificent example of woodwork and engineering for old high class housing. All rooms are spacious and carefully designed by one of the most creative and young design studios in Barcelona: PPT Interiors, with whom we carefully studied and designed the centre to maintain the flow and give guests the maximum comfort. We restored this space to bring a modernistic and relaxing vibe to this beautiful space.

From our manuals and curriculum planning to our teaching teams and facilities, everything is in service of professional-oriented training.
#2 Low Student-to-Teacher Ratios
While the industry standard is to have 20, 30 or even 40+ students for every teacher, we typically have just 8-12 students per teacher to provided more personalized attention, faster learning, and a deeper immersion experience. Studies show that smaller class sizes and low student-to-teacher ratio always provides for a better learning environment, so we make it a priority in all courses.
