Akasha is a beautiful space at over 1000m altitude with unspoiled mountain views in the heart of the Transylvanian countryside. From here, high above the daily city life we practice a simple philosophy inspired by nature, clean eating, relaxation, spirituality & a balanced healthy mind healthy body lifestyle.
Akasha ((Sanskrit ākāśa आकाश) is a term for "æther" in traditional Indian cosmology and it means "upper sky" or ‘space’. In Vedantic Hinduism, it means the basis and essence of all things in the material world; the first material element, one of the five Mahābhūtas (grand physical elements) created from the astral world.
Thus, first appeared the space or akasha, from which appeared air, from that fire or energy, from which the water, and therefrom the earth. These five elements are the basis for the AKASHA WELLNESS RETREAT and they are represented in all our facilities & concept of retreat.
In Romanian the word “ACÁSĂ” (pronunciation: [aˈkasə] means "at home”, for us this is the place of REBIRTH, REDISCOVERY & RECONNECT with a healthier, happier YOU.
The RETREAT is set in the pretty little village of Pestera in the centre of the beautiful Piatra Craiului National Park, one of the most majestic mountains & unspoilt natural reserves of Romania. And just around the corner you can spot an even grander mountain landscape, the mystical Bucegi mountains and National Park.
In this quiet & small little village you'll find a handful of hard working mountain farmers & shepherds maintaining 100yr old traditions. Set in almost an acre of greenland, our retreat has 360 degree views over beautiful sloping hills, forests & natural rivers that flow at the bottom of our garden.
