Treat yourself to time, space & nature. 

Our secluded mountain retreat is the quiet refuge for complete body & mind renewal.

The Akasha Experience

akasha or akash, aakaashá, ākāśa, (Sanskrit: आकाश) — meaning space or sky and is the basis and essence of all things in the material world; The source of all creation, the first stage of crystallisation of spirit. The fifth element or panchamahābhūtas (five great elements), the others being prthivi (earth), apa (water), agni (fire) and vayu (air).

Akasha is the space in which to remember your true essence, what you were before your shine was dimmed by the outer world. 

In Romanian the word “Acasa” means "Home”. 

If this is your first yoga retreat ever, or the first with us here’s what to expect. 

Affordable Yoga Retreat

Instead of paying commissions to online travel agents run by people that don’t understand the spirit of yoga we pass these savings on to you. You won’t find us on websites like BookYogaRetreats.com or Booking.com.

Join Our Community

We only host a small group each week so everyone gets personal attention as a member of our extended family & yoga tribe. Our home is open, inclusive & welcoming regardless of your yoga ability, nationality, gender or faith.

Unlimited Nature

Our location is rural & remote on purpose. There is virtually nothing around us apart from nature, forests, mountains & village life. 2.5hrs from Bucharest 45min from Brasov 15min from Dracula’s Castle . At 1000m high even your lungs will detox.

Digital Detox

Disconnect from the world online, it will still be there when you return.

Eco-Friendly & Sustainable

We are not a resort. Our space is created with love for the environment and for the people that live here. All our water for washing, cooking and drinking is natural spring water from our own well. We use only organic toiletries & cleaning products. All our food is seasonal and organic.

We love animals

Our home has some permanent residents, 4 cuddly dogs & 2 cats that found their way to our family. Occasionally we're visited by wildlife too.

Mystical Romania

Chances are you haven't found us by accident. The magic and mystery of this land calls you not with voices, not with words but through the ancient language of the soul. 

Return to nature. 

 From the majestic "OM" peak in Piatra Craiului National Park to the mystical Sphinx on Bucegi Mountains, Akasha is placed at the centre of an energetic vortex to subtly recharge depleted batteries. 

Our ancestors millenia ago were deeply aware of how each element of nature in perfect balance can help transcend one's soul to higher realms and experience of life.
