summer yoga retreat cover
Imagine a weekend where you can simply be, supported by pure nature, water and your yoga practice.
After experiencing physical isolation and lots of unknowns, we invite you to come out and get curious about the open space, about water and re-ground at a wonderful farmhouse in eastern Hungary.
What may have transpired for many of us recently is that we need connection, we need each other as much as to grow within ourselves.
The main goal of this summer yoga retreat led by two facilitators is togetherness, and shedding some of the heaviness we may have been carrying. We aim to reconnect to ourselves, become weightless in water, and to replenish ourselves through community, yoga and meditation.
While observing the main hygiene rules to keep ourselves safe, we offer you a safe space to nourish yourself.
PRICE:
From 199 EUR, including room and board.
If you would love to join but are facing genuine financial difficulties, please get in touch and we will try to find a solution.
REGISTRATION:
Book in advance as the places are limited to 10 people.
Your spot is secured by paying the entire amount.*

TIMING:
Friday to Sunday, 7-9 August
Please aim to arrive by 17:30 on Friday and leave around 17:30 on Sunday, Budapest time.
LOCATION:
A large farm with a traditional house and a swimming pool in Ladánybene, about one hour away from Hungary.
 
What is aquacontact?
It is like a moving meditation and subtle massage practiced in water. Anyone can participate in it; you will be guided by a certified facilitator who takes you on a journey of floating, dance and stillness in a pool. As the water surrounds the body, you may feel embraced, supported and weightless, and present.
Aquacontact can be very helpful in relieving stress and anxiety both on a physical and mental level, and arriving at wholeness and rejuvenation.
Accommodation
During this summer yoga retreat, you will stay at the farm of Nap Major in Ladánybene, about one hour away from Budapest.The farm is surrounded by a large forest, has a gorgeous yoga practice space and a heated pool for our use.
You can stay in one of the shared rooms or choose to bring your tent. Instead of high-end accommodation, picture a friendly, cosy and pure-energy space with lots of trees and quietude.
How to get there
You can reach Nap Major in Ladánybene in about one hour by car. You can also take a bus from Népliget, Budapest and get to the town in 1 hour 45 minutes, then walk to the farm.
If you have a car and are willing to share your ride, please indicate that in the sign up sheet.
Please book soonest, and if you have questions, let us know by emailing Eszter.
