On this retreat we tackle the big questions on Women’s Hormonal Health and how it affects us all in ways that we are often not even aware. A deep journey of learning about what lies beneath the surface of our bodies supported by yoga classes, relaxation, organic vegan food that cleanses and restores gut health and a roadmap to a healthier you.
We all know we have these things called Hormones, you’ve heard your girlfriends talk about PMS, painful “time of the month”, infertility, weight gain, fatigue but often we never know what causes imbalances, how to manage them and how to heal ourselves until it is too late. In this retreat our resident Functional Medical Doctor Dr Ana Maria Stoica will join us to talk openly about what all of us are going through on subjects like Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), transition pre / post pregnancy, thyroid disorder, sex hormones (estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone) and how you can gain back control of a well balanced hormonal landscape and your health via eating the right foods.
You'll be surrounded by a circle of women who will join you on a powerful journey of self-discovery and healing.

“I did my first mini yoga retreat in this place! Everything was amazing: the location, the house, the great vegan food, the yoga staff, the caring owner, and all the people we met there. I lived a fantastic experience. I recommend this little peace of heaven experience to anyone who wants to take a break from the hassles of daily life and reconnect with themselves, nature and other fantastic people.”Read More
“Great food, home comfort and more, excellent yoga teacher, amazing environment and fabulous people around. Peaceful and relaxing place where you can recharge both your mind and body. The moment I arrived in Akasha and met the group, I’ve had a feeling of belonging and everything was very natural. I am an omnivore and honestly I never thought I can live on veggies.”Read More

“I can't find the right words to describe how wonderful it is. The friendly staff are all experts at what they do and so interesting to get to know. The accommodation, atmosphere, food and scenery is incredible. Walking around and picnicking in the Carpathian Mountains was sublime. If, like me, you've not been to Transylvania before or you've not done much yoga, OMG, you're in for a treat.”Read More
