What's not to love? This place is a unique combination of guesthouse supported by a volunteer community. It's beautiful, rustic and a little paradise tucked away in an authentic tiny village. The pace of life here, including the yoga and meditation sessions is restorative. The meals and produce are exceptional and I highly recommend visiting and participating, either as a guest or volunteer. I consider the month I spent here as one of my all time highlights as a travelling yoga teacher. Rowena's care and attention to detail creates magic😍
RisingSoul is such a wonderful retreat place. Me and my partner had such a wonderful time there. I love the two places for practices - the yoga barn and the meditation room. The food is always fresh, colourful and delicious. Row is fantastic and she makes sure that all the requirements of the guests are met. We will definitely come back soon. And we highly recommend this place to everyone who is looking for something authentic, rustic and peaceful.
Amazing retreat. If you are looking for a cheap yoga retreat in Europe or/and a digital nomad then you will not find a better place than Rising Soul in Bulgaria. The retreat was transformational for me. The place is so tranquil that I couldn't even attend all the sessions they offered as I just felt suuuuuuper relaxed. The food was amazing. The people were super nice and I love how easily and freely we connected over our struggles. I absolutely loved the Kundalini yoga sessions by Row. It was a great intro to this type of yoga. There was plenty of other sessions as well from guided meditation, cleansing rituals, different yoga types, pilates, tai chi, tantra etc. Oh, and if you want to you can take the dogs for a walk! I doubt you will find a place that can beat the value Rising Soul provided. Absolutely worth going! I'm not a massive nature lover and I actually enjoy being in a city so the location for me was not the best but it's not that hard to get there - just get a bus from Sofia to tryavna and from there they will arrange a taxi. Do not let the location discourage you. The dorm was very cute and comfortable. I felt like I was hanging out with my new friends in a camp away from my parents 😋 Definitely recommend! Thank you.
RisingSoul has been home to me for 25 days. I was there as a guest, at first just to reset and have some healthy routine. I did get that. But I got so much more. Delicious meals. Some of the best yoga classes I have had. Laughs. Hearfelt soul hugs. Beautiful music sessions. Incredible connections of other people staying at the retreat (both guests and volunteers). Not all days were "up" days. But that's why it felt so much like a home. I loved my stay and definitely recommend RisingSoul to anyone who would like to experience slow living, nature and a beautiful community. Hey! And if you love dogs and cats, there's a bonus! :) Amira, Paddy and Solly will brighten any shaded day 🤍🌞.
