Dear nature lovers,

We are delighted to invite you to join us in a new adventure of self-discovery and nature exploration.

This time, we will head close to Sibiu for a leisurely hike along the Răşinari – the ruins of the former peasant fortress – Trăinei hamlet trail.

During our hike, we will have stops interspersed with meditation and yoga practices (simple exercises for correct posture) that will help us relax and connect more easily with ourselves and nature.

This time, we propose a very interesting exercise, meditation and guided walking in a natural labyrinth, an excellent activity for personal growth and self-awareness.

As we will be walking through the forest (especially a wonderful pine forest), we will take the opportunity to carefully observe the surrounding environment and to regain our balance and inner peace through simple deep breathing techniques.

What will we do?

– A light, awareness hike where we will learn elements of forest bathing and discover the benefits of walking in the forest;
– We will explore mindful photography focused on nature and our relationship with the surroundings;
– We will visit the ruins of the fortress at Răşinari, a village designated as #BestTourismVillage by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) in December 2022;
– We will learn about how hiking is a sport and should be treated as such, and we will learn to behave responsibly with nature and ourselves;
– We will discover how important the health of the spine and joints is and we will practice some yoga exercises that will remain useful in the future.


We will meet at 8:30 AM in the parking lot of Dumbrava Inn (near the Hilton Hotel). We will group by car and head towards Rășinari. The cost of fuel will be divided among the participants in each car. In our van, we have 6 seats available. We estimate to start the hike between 9:00 and 9:15 AM.
