Are you looking to:
– break free from the stress, and pressures of the modern world
– clear and calm your mind
– get a fitness and weight loss boost
– eat healthy and organic traditional Romanian food
– explore an amazing culture, history and a story dating back hundreds of years

Then this is for you.

Dracula’s Retreat takes place at Dracula’s Castle in Transylvania, in the heart of the Carpathian Mountains. We will be within walking distance from the castle itself.

Besides Dracula’s Castle as a must see, the mountains aren’t manicured, fenced and off limits. When we go hiking….we just go. We leave behind all the worries, frustrations, and the modern world, and walk into the wild, along paths and old villages, with the spirit of the ancient Carpathian Mountains.


This retreat is open to everyone. However, if you have trouble running or hiking a few miles, it would be better to skip this one. Otherwise, you may prefer to sit out on the difficult hiking sessions and participate in the ones more accessible to you.

We will be out in nature most of the day. Alexandra will be taking you through some wonderful places in and around Bran village, for natrual movement fitness training and tourism – including Dracula’s Castle.

Alexandra will emphasize basic yet challenging, mindful movements, particularly ground movement and get-ups with amazing benefits for overall mobility and stability.

You will enjoy:
- Hiking in the Carpathian Mountains
- Visiting Dracula’s Castle and the village
- Natural Movements fitness coaching (logs, rocks and trees included!)
- Meditation
- Organic, home grown food
- Barbecues
And more
