YOUR TEACHER & PRACTICE

Is this for you?

This is for all those in need of a nourishing and heartwarming space to unwind, relax and get clarity and inspiration for the New Year 2020. But be aware, this is not just a holiday! It is also a week of healing, transformation and self-discovery.  You are invited to stretch and discover yourself beyond your comfort zone, roles and patterns. The Yoga, meditation and other practices that are shared this week are designed to make you more silent inside and recognize who or what you are beyond the limiting thoughts and beliefs you have about yourself and the world.

This New Years Yoga Retreat is for the beings that are ready to dive deep within and reveal what is blocking you from being happy, at ease and in peace with yourself. The yoga retreat is for people from all levels of yoga, all food is organic vegan and extremely varied and we will have a New Years Yogi style glass of Champagne to celebrate together too!

Alice D

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”
