THE STORY

Six days of nature and yoga in Transylvania.

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!

YOUR TEACHER & PRACTICE

Patricia Grigorescu

My journey with yoga started slowly, as a practice that could help me release the stress of working in the film business. Also having a past as a rally driver, I rediscovered the power of focus and of active meditation, something that my brain was trained to do but was missing in the hectic rhythm of city life. Being of a very competitive nature, I learned that sometimes letting go of control is the right way to grow. Throughout the years I built the courage to pursue this path, realizing that I could actually pass on what I was learning, thus having my work reflect my values and bringing a piece of awareness and kindness into the world.

I take on every class with a light-hearted creative approach, focusing on vulnerability and encouraging the inner child to come out and play.  Yoga should be a practice where our attention focuses inwards and where we can let ourselves be free of judgment towards the self and others. The mind in its natural relaxed state is still, which in turn brings balance and strength to our bodies. So leave all expectations to the door and let yourselves flow and experiment with your body, mind, and soul.

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.”
