When we discovered the pretty village of Pestera in Romania we realised there is more to life than cities.
We travelled and lived all over the world in search of this, but it was there all along, right at home, “Acasa”. Akasha Wellness Retreat is a project that values healing and connection to nature and to each other, formed by the community of people, just like us, who had the courage to explore untravelled paths. It is the only dedicated yoga retreat in Romania.
Daniela is the lady with the fertile land for our seed - the village of Pestera & Akasha as we know it today. For over 20 years Daniela lived in London where she has a successful business analyst career and her own business consultancy practice but in the back of her mind her passion lied in healthy cooking & sourcing organic fresh produce. Because of her meticulous attention to detail, the retreat runs like clockwork with a team of highly dedicated people & motivates all of us to smile more often.Email Daniela
