Our venue is built from earthy organic materials and brings our guest a fusion of rustic practice spaces, mountain valley and ancient church views. Press the read more button to find out all about our affordable nomads and solo travellers community & retreat.

Accommodation is provided in our homely historic Bulgarian village villa and our magical forest and waterfall glamping site, which is in development. Guests love the huge stone courtyard with open fronted chill out area, summer kitchen and ancient Yoga Barn, all with stunning church and sunrise views.

We are passionate about developing a diverse, holistic and welcoming Yoga Retreat which is the hub for social connection. Around this hub we aim to rejuvenate abandoned village property’s to develop a Eco Community of Nomads who choose to live in nature but enjoy social connection.

Based in a unique rural setting we are excitedly expanding in a partnership with a neighbouring property allowing us to provide the “BalkanNomads” Coliving and Workcation venue “Connecting Nomads & Nature” and are working with the local Mayor to restore the village cafe and shop. If you are interested in joining us part of a developing community please get in touch info@risingsoulretreat.com

The project has been inspired by my solo global travels and the lives of the digital nomads, freelancers and travelling yoga teachers I have befriended along the way.

Having spent time myself working globally on projects which I undertake as a solo female contractor. I understand that it can be challenging to meet other digital nomads, solo travellers or backpackers when you are working and travelling alone. 

Luckily I am fortunate to be an experienced solo female traveller and have an extrovert nature. Which has given me the confidence to find and spend time in hostels, community and retreat environments. However, its not so easy for many people who may be new to solo travel or have a more introvert nature. 

That’s why I have spent the last year talking to as many yogi’s, travellers, nomads, WorkAway volunteers and remote workers as possible. We  have drawn on this collective experience to bring together our very own bespoke bohemian blend of life work balance.

The RisingSoul is developing as a community which values equability, sustainability, freedom of expression and mind body and spiritual awareness. We welcomes all travellers and are especially conscious of providing a safe space where solo female and male travellers can feel at home, safe, respected and comfortable.

Belitsa’s a small Bulgarian Mountain Village with room for our community to develop and expand. Set between Tryavna and Voneshta Voda Mineral Spa in the Balkan Mountain region of Gabrovo, it is surrounded by natural parks and rivers. With the old capital Veliko Tarnovo, just 25min North East. (Famous for protecting the Balkans from the Ottoman invasion) and one hour South West from the Valley of the Roses, Shipka Pass and the Uzana ski resort. If you would like to know more about how and why I have a property in Bulgaria head on over to my Author Bio to get some background.

We are delighted that with the help of seven WorkAway volunteers despite a long COVID induced delay we are now almost ready to launch our Yoga Retreat Space and our BalkanNomad venue for digital nomads and solo travellers. Our fun, friendly team provides a supportive, flexible, non judgemental environment for a diverse community of digital Nomads and Solo Travellers to share their creative ideas, yoga, travel and work experience in.

The RisingSoul Team will arrange a variety of social events, off-site group activities, visits and mountain sport. At home our well-equipped work areas and leisure facilities allow you to excel in your working life and thrive in your own unique blend of community, social activity and mind-body retreat. 

Guests can join our ashram style yoga community for longer stays or come and enjoy one of our unique and individually designed affordable yoga retreats. All guests will have the option to hire their own personal yoga equipment set for the duration of their stay in addition to mountain bikes. You are free to self practice as you wish and we provide on screen classes for those community members who prefer to do their own personal yoga practice. 

We have an amazing international team of diversely trained yoga teacher https://risingsoulretreat.com/guest-yoga-coaches/, living within our community. Who will hold daily practice sessions which all BalkanNomad and RisingSoul Community guests, who can purchase a weekly pass or join classes at at the single class rate.
