a day with us

Each day, we have two yoga sessions outside on custom-made wooden decks - one covered and one uncovered, offering a fantastic view. During breaks between yoga, meals, and activities, there are several scenic areas within the center - some in the sun, others in the shade - with hammocks, swings, or benches for reading, working, socializing, or relaxing. Additionally, there's an outdoor gazebo equipped with power outlets and Wi-Fi, providing a comfortable environment for checking in with your laptop.We also offer the use of several mountain bikes at no charge for exploring the area. Masha has the habit of taking a half an hour ride before the morning Yoga session, and you are welcome to join her. Approximately three times a week, depending on demand, we go on a 1.5-hour hike to a nearby viewpoint or a remote hillside village that only has a few remaining homes from a 2015 landslide. On request (no extra charge) we do hikes in the Bucegi Mountain (shortest hike: 4 hours) Don't forget to bring comfortable walking shoes. On Saturday evenings, we light a campfire, reflecting on the day and enjoying a glass of wine.
