If you like outdoor activities this retreat is packed with them—plus some added relaxation, which you will definitely need! The retreat overlooks the Piatra Craiului Mountains, a range in the Southern Carpathians that forms a narrow and saw-like ridge, about 25 km (16 mi) long. The highest elevation in the massif is the “Vârful La Om” at 2,238 metres (7,343 ft): the “OM” peak. We're going to try to summit the “OM” peak in one day. This is a challenging and rewarding climb, done at a steady pace with an experienced mountain guide. On your way up you may spot some wildlife! These mountains are quite famous for their incredible scenery—you may have seen them in the movie “Cold Mountain”, which was shot nearby. If it’s good enough for Nicole Kidman, it's good enough for us!
Our location is rural & remote on purpose, at 1000m altitude in a sleepy village in the heartland of Transylvania. There is virtually nothing around us apart from nature, forests, mountains & village life. Find us 2.5hrs from Bucharest Airport, 45min from Brasov and 15min from Dracula’s Castle.

“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
