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, mobility & reconnect with the body.

TESTIMONIALS

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.”
