Learning how to eat is a form of art and if you always wanted to learn creative ways to introduce more plant based foods into your diet let us show you how we do it. We've been sharing our Akasha signature plant based menu for the last 3 years with thousands of guests and we love to share all our wholesome, seasonal recipes with you.
This week we'll have 4 cooking demonstrations introducing gluten free vegan cooking, the basis of a healthy nutritionally balanced plant based diet, raw vegan desserts and creative dishes that will leave anyone drooling. We will jointly create dishes that can be enjoyed by all and learn how to combine ingredients to create a plate of goodness, a plate that you can be grateful for, that is good for you and it’s not just another meal. No diets, no fads, nothing fancy, nothing fake. Simply home cooking that is plant-based, fresh & healthy.
We’ll start each day with sunrise yoga session, breakfast & cooking demonstrations and presentations that on how to form good habits and how to create a healthy home menu for yourself and the whole family.

“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
