About This Event

A yoga and Solution Focused retreat to awaken body, mind and heart

Welcome to a journey of self discovery and development. Away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, this retreat in the Carpathian mountains of Romania is offering you the opportunity to bring a new level of aliveness and awareness. It will allow you to align with your potential and your purpose.

In daily life, we spend a lot of time with mental activities and outward directed focus.   Before we know it, we get alienated from our inner world, the signals and wisdom of our body and heart and we live a second best life that is not fully reflecting our best possible self.

During this yoga and Solution Focus retreat, you will reconnect to the wisdom of your body, the vastness of your possibilities and the ease of your personal flow. You will make room and way for your essential self, a way to see a world that is working for you instead of against you.

How we work

I often hear ‘we have to stretch ourselves to grow and to move out of our comfort zone!’. Well, we have quite a different understanding of growth. We are not a rubber band but a living being. Plants don’t grow faster when you pull them. And even a rubber band will move back into the old form when we stop pulling it. And what do people do when you pull them out of the comfort zone? Most of us try to resist and move back as soon as possible. In all these years we am supporting people in their personal growth and development we have seen again and again, when we ENLARGE THE COMFORT ZONE, growth comes easy and natural. Like a plant needs sun, water, minerals and space to grow, we need nourishment, inspiration, love, trust and safety to grow well. And yes, we grow with the challenges we are facing and we don’t mean we should hide in a nice cozy place and let life happen outside. When we are more aware and connected with our resources, we build confidence and trust in ourselves, we flow into our potential naturally. We grow with ease out of the challenges we meet in life. And our comfort zone grows.

Flow into your potential.

Our work is based on more than 30 years research on what helps people to move forward in their lives and live their potential. Recognizing resources, discovering forward moving forces by focusing on solutions (not problems) and honest appreciation is the foundation of our work. As coaches and therapists we experience every day that body, mind and emotions are very closely connected and cannot be separated. Therefore all our exercises and learning experiences integrate the wisdom of our body. Starting and ending the day with Yoga is the perfect frame and supports a clear and peaceful state of mind. It’s like a container that holds the days in which we explore, experiment, discover new sides and qualities of us. This will be through guided interactions within the group and in individual sessions.

What we will do

Meditation and mindfulness exercises, guided breathing and conscious movement sessions, Solution Focused coaching conversations and Systemic Constellations work, visualising and journaling will be offered in group settings.

Optional we offer private coaching sessions, massage, heart coherence and breathing sessions.

What we will take away:

Healthy practices to sustain your energy on a daily basis

An increased feeling of Inner peace and balance

More awareness of your personal qualities and uniqueness

More clarity about what feels right to you and your possibilities

Feeling more connected to your inner freedom and wisdom

Akasha ????paradise within the mountains, that would be the best way of described it. It is situated in lovely peaceful area surrounding Bran where the air is so pure and the scenery is breath taking. This experience is only paralleled by the hospitality and the friendliness of the Akasha team. They immediately welcomed everyone into the retreat and made everyone feel relaxed and gave us a sense belonging. Akasha helps you to connect with your inner self, the earth and nature .The yoga classes channel your thoughts and energy into positivity and appreciation of the natural world. Thank you Anna for being so inspiring and so helpful.The food was delicious and appetizing ,lovely fruits and vegetables .The flavor combinations that the chef creates is astonishing and inspires you to consider plant based meals.Unfortunately my time there had to end but I have experienced a direct connect to nature. So if you are looking for a yoga retreat and a place you can really connect with yourself and nature and meet lovely people I really recommend Akasha! I want to thank Akasha for the experience and look forward to my return. Ps : Daniela you and your team are doing great job!????????????
