Yoga and Vegan Cooking Retreat
Join us for an event-filled week, and learn how to create variety in your kitchen through seasonal, wholesome, and healthy vegan cooking. We will create nourishing dishes that can be enjoyed by all, and learn how to combine ingredients to create a plant-based plate of goodness. No diets, no fads, nothing fancy, nothing fake. Simply home cooking that fresh, healthy and delicious.
We’ll begin each day with a sunrise yoga session, followed by a healthy breakfast. After that we will continue with cooking demonstrations and presentations that will help you to form good habits and create a home menu for yourself and your family.

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.
