Our secluded retreat venue is the quiet refuge for complete body & mind renewal. With beautiful gathering spaces, lovely lodging, and plenty of fresh air and space, guests quickly appreciate the healing power and wonder of their time here.
Our intimate retreat centre has 11 bedrooms. We only host a small group each week so everyone gets personal attention as a member of our extended family & yoga tribe.
All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, quality linen & towels, organic toiletries, private seating area, hairdryer, cotton bath robe, daily housekeeping, hairdryer, alarm clock, in room safe. Some bedrooms have balconies.
Our food is not the kind that only looks pretty in photos, it's the kind that heals your gut, improves digestion & cleanses gently.

A vegan yoga retreat in Dracula’s back yard “Mealtimes are fun and even non-veggies rave about the food, which is always colourful, plentiful and full of flavour.” Jane Dunford, The Guardian.
Our all inclusive yoga retreat means 3 organic plant based meals per day, unlimited organic detoxifying teas & filtered infused spring water.
You'll receive all our recipes so you can keep on eating the same Akasha delicious food at home.
As a guest you’ll have unlimited access to swedish & infra red sauna + outdoor jacuzzi hot tub, both with views of our mountains.
Body therapies, energy healing and massages can be booked on arrival.
Our location is rural & remote on purpose. There is virtually nothing around us apart from nature, forests, mountains & village life.
Here every guest finds their own source of physical and spiritual relaxation. Some on the yoga mat, others on the massage table and for most on the south facing terrace gazing at the vast spread of nature below.
