Venue and local area
Warmia is one of the finest regions in Poland in terms of its natural beauty. It’s there where nature reveals its full beauty and the clean water and air invite you to spend your free time in the wilderness. Warmia is naturally rich in forests, rivers and lakes which gives us an ideal location for lots of cool activities such as hiking, cycling or kayaking.
Kwaśne Jabłko (that translates as 'sour apple':) is a stunning farm house with a very modern twist. The house is sounded by apple trees, fields and a wee lake. You can rest under an apple tree in a hammock or set yourself for a wee adventure to discover the beauty of the local area.
They even produce their own cider which we are going to try on one of the evenings! Interestingly, in May 2015 their products were even very 'highly recommended' by the jury of the British Cider Championship.
What makes it so special?
The location - Kwasne Jalbko is an amazing space with absolutely awesome ambience. Surrounded by the forest, very quiet and relaxing. The rooms are specious and the showers are amazing!
SPA Day! To make it even more wonderful, we are going to have indulge our senses with a herbal hot tub afternoon at Camp Spa. This place is simply magical and there is no more relaxing way to round off a leisurely day.
The food. If you have ever been to any of our retreats then you know we love our food! You will be able to try some of the signature Polish food everyone are talking about. Eat healthy, clean and well. All our meals will be prepared fresh on site using local produce. Most of the delicious ingredients are grown organically in the wondrous vegetable gardens at Kwasne Jablko and come from their farm.

Frequently asked questions
I HAVEN’T DONE MUCH YOGA BEFORE, CAN I COME?
We have designed this retreat for people who love yoga, whether they are beginners or have been practicing for years. Regardless of your experience we will adapt the classes to what feels confortable for you. Our ethos is open and friendly and we set up our business to spread yoga to people who perhaps wouldn’t have gone on a yoga retreat before. So don’t be shy, there is no time like the present to start your journey with yoga.
I AM QUITE AN EXPERIENCED YOGI, WOULD I ENJOY YOUR RETREATS?
Yes! All our retreats and holidays are suitable for those who have done little or lots of yoga. Retreats are so small and so unique we have the time and the space to always make sure that every single person in the group has their needs and expectations met over the time they are with us.
DO I NEED INSURANCE?
We have our own teacher's insurance and we are not planning any extreme sports, however, we require you to consider taking out your own insurance in case you have an accident whilst away, especially on your way to our retreat.
