THE STORY

Wine is tradition in Transylvania and this will be an extra celebration.

Transylvania may not be known for its wine outside the little country of Romania, and that needs to change. We’re doing our part in promoting what we believe is a culture of making wine on par to that of France, Italy or Spain. We’ve invited a local sommelier to explain a little about what why and how wine is made here in Romania, the different textures, colours and tastes of different regions of Romania that we believe are a must try. This is a retreat with a celebration as it falls on Romania National Day! We’ll be delighting in local Romanian wines, live folk music & a small group of like minded people that love yoga, nature & delicious organic food.

YOUR TEACHER & PRACTICE

Irina Raileanu

In her “previous life,” Irina ran a travel startup in London.  

Since then has traveled to India and beyond in search of a dedicated yoga and meditation community in line with her spiritual values.

As with most people, her journey in yoga did not start as a result of a balanced lifestyle, whilst living in London it became apparent that something was missing and so she began to practice yoga 8 years ago at her local studio.

This was the first seed of thought that made her realize her body is her temple and the impact that a 90-minute class had on her physical and mental wellbeing was hugely beneficial.

The practice of Yoga gave her the courage to discover more about herself and the world and so she packed a bag and went traveling for 2 years.

Her mission was and is to live life in the present moment.

From practicing yoga on the beach in Goa to remote villages in Cambodia, to traditional ashrams and discovering Ayurveda in Kerala, to meditation with Buddhist Monks in Tibet and hiking the Himalayas.

Her journey inspired her to see beyond what she has always known of Yoga as the physical practice but that of an integrated lifestyle.

Something that everyone can do, that is for everyone.

Her travels and experience have inspired her to create the experience that is Akasha today.

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.”
