About us

Set in a picturesque village inside Romania’s most beautiful National Park, Piatra Craiului (King’s Stone) mountains, our Transylvania yoga & hiking retreat will be an experience of a lifetime!

Yoga, breathing and meditation practices to recharge your body and mind combined with nature and mountain walks to nurture your soul are 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 & 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 & quaint village you will find a handful of hard working mountain farmers & shepherds maintaining traditions going back hundreds of years, transporting you back in history.


The Transylvania yoga & hiking retreat includes:

  • Pick up & Drop Off to Bucharest airport (at a given time)
  • Twice daily yoga sessions with Masha Kovacs
  • Guided hiking, nature & forest walks
  • Historic outing to Dracula’s Castle and more
  • 5 nights accommodation in boutique rooms with en-suite bathrooms and glorious mountain views
  • 3 Daily healthy vegan & vegetarian meals all organic and local produce
  • Daily Superfood Juice & Smoothies
  • Sauna & Outdoor hot tub with Epsom salts
  • On site Spa Therapies & Salt Herbal Bath Soak Rituals


You will enjoy 3 delicious vegan/vegetarian, gluten free meals each day plus superfood juices and smoothies, as well as fresh fruit and teas available all day.

The delicious menu is designed to fortify your overall health & 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 combination of ingredients acts as anti-inflammatory, alkaline foods that balance hormones, blood sugar and blood pressure.

The aim is that you’ll pick up good habits from being on retreat and that you’ll continue to live a healthy & balanced lifestyle back home using essential principles about food & nutrition that are easily applicable in our daily lives. You will receive all the yummy recipes at the end of the retreat so you can keep on eating the same delicious food at home.

The Yoga Program

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 twice daily yoga practices with a 90min. invigorating morning yoga session and a gentle 60min. afternoon practice to loosen you up after the day.

By the end of our yoga retreat you will feel deeply recharged and renewed: physically, emotionally & 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 outdoor bathtub than come to class, that’s ok! Whatever makes you feel best, please do that.
