New Year yoga retreat in the Hungarian countryside

Join us for a weekend of a heart-warming yoga retreat in the Hungarian countryside and arrive at focused intentions for the new year. Enjoy an opening circle, delicious vegetarian food, morning meditations, a Thai yoga massage, a campfire ceremony, and say goodbye through a yin practice and heart chakra meditation. Fresh air, a pleasant farm house at Kisnyalka manor await you and if you crave a nature walk, forest paths can take you on a stroll! Besides the magical house with a large, bright semi-circular hall designed to hold soulful yoga and meditation sessions, the surroundings enable you to take your practice deeper. On Day 3, you also have a chance to work on your personal goals in asana, pranayama or meditation, guided based on aims set in a personal consultation.

You will stay at the cozy and simple Kisnyalka farm house, surrounded by green fields and large, old trees. The options range from rooms of 8 or 4 beds to a double bed room. The most beautiful feature of the house are the semi-circular hall with large windows and a built-in hearth and an amazing wooden roof structure: this is our sacred yoga space.

Prices start at $180 EUR including accommodation, food and all activities. Price for locals and lower income participants: 42,000 HUF. For inquiries, contact Eszter at info@soundlightyoga.com

Also let them know if you have any injuries.

The retreat takes place at a wonderful farm house with lots of natural wooden structures and rustic furniture. It is surrounded by an actual manor that houses horses and there are some rolling fields and lush woods encircling the house.

Some of the typical foods served for breakfast are heartwarming porridge with fruits and nuts, toast, freshly made spreads, and tea.
