Set in a picturesque village inside Romania’s most beautiful National Park, Piatra Craiului (King’s Stone) mountains, our Transylvania yoga and hiking retreat will be an experience of a lifetime!
Yoga, breathing and meditation practices will be lead by Masha, a yogi, rock climber, nature lover and certified Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement teacher.
Masha's programe will recharge your body and mind. Nature and mountain walks will nurture your soul and will be complemented by historic outings to Transylvania’s most emblematic sites, like the Dracula Castle and stunning countryside.
The Piatra Craiului National Park, one of the most majestic mountain ranges and unspoilt natural reserves in Romania harbors huge expanses of unspoilt forests and is home to wild bears, mountain goats, wolves and lynx, some of which are the last surviving species in Europe.
In this quiet and quaint village you will find a handful of hard working mountain farmers and shepherds maintaining traditions going back hundreds of years, transporting you back in history.
Our Transylvania yoga and hiking retreat centre, based in Magura, is a luxurious location sitting at an altitude of over 1000m surrounded by unspoilt mountain views in the heart of the local countryside. It has boutique bedrooms, all equipped with ensuite bathrooms. Some of the twin bedrooms have private balconies, while the single rooms feature glorious views of the mountains.
The retreat has magnificent views over both the Bucegi and Piatra Craiului mountains as well as surrounding hills, forests and rivers.
You will be inspired by nature, clean eating, relaxation and a healthy mind healthy body lifestyle.
You will enjoy 3 delicious vegan/vegetarian meals each day as well as fresh fruit and teas available all day.
The delicious menu is designed to fortify your overall health and wellbeing using organic unprocessed seasonal produce with the highest nutrient content possible. The food here is not only delicious and easily digested but deeply nourishing, sustaining, healing and energy-boosting.
The aim is that you'll pick up good habits from being on retreat and that you'll continue to live a healthy and balanced lifestyle back home using essential principles about food and nutrition that are easily applicable in our daily lives.
The yoga program is appropriate for all levels from total beginners to seasoned yoga students and includes Asana, Meditation and Pranayama (breathwork). You’ll be guided to get out of your comfort zone in a safe and loving environment and receive individualized attention.
We will have daily yoga practices to complement the deeply connecting work we will be doing with the natural environment. Connecting to your body and moving it into places of new possibility. We will be working with a combination of Ashtanga Yoga and Somatic Awareness-Based practices.
By the end of our yoga retreat you will feel deeply recharged and empowered: physically, emotionally and in spirit.
The attendance to the yoga program and all activities is optional. If there is a morning you prefer to sleep in or an afternoon you would rather hang out in the sun than come to class, that's ok! Whatever makes you feel best, please do that.
