  • Judit Varga

    Judit Varga has been practicing yoga since 2000 and teaching since 2009. Her main style is Vinyasa Flow, but she teaches other styles as well including prenatal, mom and baby, kids and family, Hatha yoga, and Yin yoga. She likes to focus on a theme in each class, to make the practice more efficient by breaking down the immense teachings of yoga into smaller portions. She has been living and teaching in different cultures like Bali, Mexico, Hungary, and many other places.

This retreat will take place in Budapest, Hungary. Straddling the Danube River, with the Buda hills to the west and the Great Plains to the east, Budapest is a gem of a city. But Budapest’s beauty is not all God given; humankind has played a role in shaping this pretty face, too.

Architecturally, the city is a treasure trove, with enough baroque, neoclassical, eclectic, and art nouveau or secessionist buildings to satisfy everyone. Overall, though, Budapest has a fin-de-siècle feel to it; for it was then, during the capital’s golden age in the late 19th century, that most of what you see today was built.

Budapest history

They say the past is another country, but it’s always been just around the corner in Budapest. Witness the bullet holes and shrapnel pockmarks on buildings from World War II and the 1956 uprising. There are sad reminders like the poignant shoes on the Danube memorial. But there are also, reminders of hope and reconciliation like the sword of the former secret-police building on Andrássy út; now beaten into the ploughshare that is the Terror House, with both sides of the story told. And there’s joy in this place as much-loved concert halls and theaters are built and renovated, metro lines extended, and busy streets repaved and pedestrianized.

Things to love about Budapest

According to writer, Steve Falcon, he loves Budapest for all the right reasons and there are three things that made him stay.

  • Architecture. It is the most amazing attractions in Budapest, especially art nouveau. There is romance, particularly the views from the bridges and sticky apricot jam. And then, there are some of the wrong ones, too, like killer pálinka or fruit brandy, rickety trolleybuses, and checking out bodies in the Turkish baths.
  • Beautiful people.
  • Language. It is beautiful but impenetrable. It makes one of the difficult things to comprehend about an often sad but confident city whose history seemed too complex.

During this retreat, you will be served with two breakfasts and one dinner in Budapest; and two breakfasts, one lunch, and two dinners in the country hotel on the Szentendre Island.

Eat, drink, and be Magyar

There’s a lot more to Hungarian food than goulash, and it remains one of the most sophisticated styles of cooking in Europe. Magyars may exaggerate when they say that there are three essential world cuisines: French, Chinese, and their own. But Budapest’s reputation as a food capital dates largely from the late 19th and the first half of the 20th century. And, despite a fallow period under communism, the city is once again commanding attention. So, too, are its excellent wines from Villány’s big-bodied reds and Somló’s flinty whites to honey-gold sweet Tokaj.

While you are in Hungary, you can explore the amazing architecture around Budapest, experience great dining and wine tasting. You can also visit Buda castle, spa houses, and the Jewish quarter.

The Budapest experience of "taking the waters"

The city is blessed with an abundance of hot springs. As a result, "taking the waters" has been a Budapest experience since the time of the Romans. The choice of bathhouses is generous; so, you can choose among Turkish-era, art nouveau, and modern establishments. Some people come seeking a cure for whatever ails them, but the majority are there for fun and relaxation. Although, it is still believed that it’s the world’s best cure for what Hungarians call a macskajaj or cat’s wail. In other words, hangover.
