Dates 20 - 26th of September 2019


We offer you yet another opportunity to experience the beauty of the Bulgarian mountain in its early autumn glory. The mystical Rhodopi mountain (http://www.slavorum.org/mystical-rhodope-mountains-in-bulgaria/) will offer you serenity and mysticism infused with ancient enchantment.

Our trip will include passing through the magnificent Trigrad Gorge and Buynovo Gorge. Three unique caves are located in the region of the two gorges – the Devil’s Cave, Haramyiska Cave and Yagodinska Cave, which are on our list of optional visits.


The retreat will include morning and afternoon yoga sessions with Tsveti and Sneja. We plan to incorporate a lot of pranayama techniques to avail ourselves of the crystal clear air, meditation techniques and for those who are open to new experiences – partner yoga with elements of acro yoga, and some aerial yoga. So don’t hesitate to bring along a partner.
