Yoga & Ski go together like Lois & Clark

See if Superman was a real story, Lois would most definitely be a yogi and Clark most definitely a snowboarder, only Superman is not real…. unfortunately but we think there’s a Lois in each one of us. So if there is a superpower we’d like to have it is the ability to do not only do 1 physical activity but 2..at the same time…and having fun with it too!

We’ve put this retreat together for those that love to stretch and love to slide. Why not?

Skiing where?

Our skiing region is the resort of Poiana Brasov, a 45 min scenic drive from Akasha. A recent entry on the skiing circuit of Europe and that certainly comes with benefits, lower costs for ski passes & less busy slopes, you might end up having the mountain to yourself if you’re really lucky. Following a modernisation in 2010, the ski area has been extended from 50 hectares to 80 hectares and the length of the slopes increased from 13.8km to 23.9km, with snow cannons also now installed to ensure a good surface.

Poiana Brasov benefits from a temperate-continental climate with average temperatures for summer and winter 20°C and -4°C respectively. The natural wintry weather means you can expect to enjoy outstanding conditions and, in the event that the snow thins out, there is plenty of artificial white stuff to make up for it.

There are several ski schools in the resort to ensure visitors can develop their skills and feel more comfortable on the slopes for both ski and snowboard.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
