Do you need rest? Do you want some time away from the stresses of modern life, while connecting to nature, yourself and others? My Yoga and Hiking Retreat in Romania might be just for you. Read on if you want to learn more!
Why join a Yoga and Hiking Retreat?
Over the years, I’ve learned that spending time in the mountains of Romania brings me joy like nothing else. This is where I recover from the crazy demands modern life imposes on me; where I rest and digest; where I reconnect with myself and my surroundings. Over the past decade or so, I’ve been through a lot: not being in the right place led to burnout and depression as well as physical health issues. I also discovered that I’m a highly sensitive person and an introvert. Learning to adjust and listen to my needs, and find my role in this world, is an ongoing journey.
Listening to others, I’ve realized that I’m far from alone: so many of us crave peace & quiet, connection, acceptance, freedom to be our true selves. And even if you’re perfectly healthy, there’s so much static in our everyday lives that we could do without, right? That’s why I decided to start creating Yoga and Hiking retreats in the hills, mountains and countryside of Romania.
My intention is to regularly organize yoga & hiking retreats, both weeklong ones and weekends. The first upcoming retreat is a Yoga & Hiking Retreat at Dolina Village, from 10-16 June 2024.
Yoga & Hiking Retreat at Dolina Village, 10-16 June 2024
From 10-16 June 2024, I’ll be organizing my next Yoga & Hiking Retreat at Dolina Village in the Padurea Craiului region. Join me and yoga therapist Andrea Noghiu for a week of pure goodness. Immerse yourself in the beauty of the foothills of the Apuseni Mountains, nourish your soul and challenge your body. This will be a week during which you can truly connect with yourself and your surroundings: eat local food, experience local customs, sleep in a traditional Romanian house or a glamping tent, take in the views… Join us for a retreat that will replenish and restore! Check out the programme here.
For this retreat I’ve joined forces with Amsterdam-based and Romanian-born yoga therapist and yoga teacher Andrea Noghiu. She will guide us through a nourishing yoga session every morning. The basis is hatha yoga; the focus is selfcare. Through yoga, we will learn to reconnect with our bodies and our surroundings, so that we can experience peace in both body and mind. The yoga sessions will also prepare us for our hikes. Read more about Andrea here.
Of course we will explore our wider surroundings too! I’ll guide you on four hikes in the Padurea Craiului region. The length will vary from 8 to 15 km, with moderate altitude gain (no more than 800 m). Although the hikes are beginner-friendly, some experience with hiking is required, or at the very least a willingness to build up your fitness level leading up to the retreat.
