Going on pilgrimage is an ongoing ancient practice within the yogic tradition. In Sanskrit it is called tīrtha-yātrā, meaning “of the river, the ford …a place of spiritual crossing”, as explained by Diana L. Eck in India: A Sacred Geography.
There is no such thing as a “wrong time to visit the Carpathian Mountains". This beautiful place is stunning during any time of the year. Full of green colors, blossoms, and fresh air in summer and spring. In fall, it looks like a gold mine because trees turn bright yellow and red. And in winter, it is a real fairy tale. Recently, I was really lucky to visit this amazing place on a yoga retreat to contemplate a true winter wonderland.
Are you a mountain person or a beach person? And how about when it comes to a yoga retreat? Would you rather do your best asanas feeling the sand between your toes or smelling the fresh scent of pines? Both are an excellent experience, and the best part is that there are yoga holidays for both!
The most spectacular beaches in Europe, remarkable surf spots, award-winning wines, exquisite cuisine, plenty of ancient castles, lots of history, incredibly nice people, affordable prices… Do you really need to be convinced to visit this paradise on Earth?
