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!🙂🌱😘
