THE STORY

A Yoga Retreat for sustainable living and intelligent lifestyle flow.

Most contemporary yoga is an active practice in which you move from pose to pose, building heat and increasing strength and flexibility in equal measure. Restorative yoga is something completely different—it’s about slowing down and opening the body through passive stretching. Holding each carefully selected posture for longer helps relax the muscles deeply & restore the free flow of breath calmly. Restorative classes are very mellow, making them a good complement to more active practices, the hectic pace of every day life and an excellent antidote to stress. This retreat is geared towards the yogi who wants to switch the mind from a state of turbulence to the bliss of tranquility, restore calm, increase mobility & reconnect with the body.

Come home to yourself

“It’s been almost 1 month since I’ve left Bucharest and surrendered myself to what seems to be the most challenging experience of my life (so far) - the Yoga Teacher Training @ Akasha. I could spend days talking about the learning process, the extreme feelings, the nature, the benefits of a vegan diet, yoga & everything that comes with it. But I feel like I need more time to let everything settl...”

A month I'll always remember
