Description

3 Night Transylvanian Wine Tasting and Yoga Retreat

Join us for our three night Transylvanian Wine Tasting and Yoga Retreat this November. Transylvania may not be known for its wine outside the little country of Romania, and that needs to change. We’re doing our part in promoting what we believe is a culture of making wine on par to that of France, Italy or Spain.

We’ve invited a local sommelier to explain a little about what why and how wine is made here in Romania, the different textures, colours and tastes of different regions of Romania that we believe are a must try. This is a retreat with a celebration as it falls on Romania National Day! We’ll be delighting in local Romanian wines, live folk music and a small group of like minded people that love yoga, nature and delicious organic food.

As a guest you’ll have unlimited access to a Swedish Spa and infra red sauna + outdoor jacuzzi hot tub, both with views of our mountains. On arrival you can also book on demand body therapies, energy healing and massages.

Yoga

Our retreat offers twice daily yoga classes + workshops designed to begin or deepen your practice. We practice on our south facing outdoor platform on in our indoor studio.

Teacher

Patricia Grigorescu

My journey with yoga started slowly, as a practice that could help me release the stress of working in the film business. Also having a past as a rally driver, I rediscovered the power of focus and of active meditation, something that my brain was trained to do but was missing in the hectic rhythm of city life. Being of a very competitive nature, I learned that sometimes letting go of control is the right way to grow. Throughout the years I built the courage to pursue this path, realizing that I could actually pass on what I was learning, thus having my work reflect my values and bringing a piece of awareness and kindness into the world.

I take on every class with a light-hearted creative approach, focusing on vulnerability and encouraging the inner child to come out and play. Yoga should be a practice where our attention focuses inwards and where we can let ourselves be free of judgment towards the self and others. The mind in its natural relaxed state is still, which in turn brings balance and strength to our bodies.

What past guests have said

”My daughter and I have just returned from this magical place – 6 days of utter relaxation and re-balancing of mind and body. Anything you see or read does not do it justice, you really have to be there to experience the serenity.”

”Loved every minute of my stay here! It’s the most relaxing place I’ve ever been to. The food was amazing, the view, the surroundings, the people, the massage, the yoga, everything! I’m already planning to come back.”

”No idea where to start as the whole experience was amazing from the warm welcome, right through to the fond farewell. Spectacular setting, delightful decor, fantastic food, super selection of spa therapies, and last, but not least, yoga!.”

How to get here

Our village is called Pestera which means the cave in Romanian. It is named after a beautiful bat cave that is a five-minute stroll from our centre. The Village is part of the National Park of Piatra Craiului, a majestic chain of mountains and forest valleys that still harbour an abundance of wildlife from bears to mountain goats and more. 7km away is one of the most debated Transylvanian icon, Dracula’s castle in Bran.

Fly to Bucharest International Airport, and then make your way to Brasov by train or taxi. We will arrange for a driver to come and collect you from Brasov.
