Support a Sustainable Plant Based Community.

Join Our Non Profit Yoga Retreats

Our work here is to provide a space and practices that enable you to heal and relax from the bombardment of modern life. Our intention is to raise our collective vibration and reveal our true self: Joy & compassion are our natural state and all life is sacred.

The RisingSoul is a safe space to reconnect with your authentic self and mother earth. Find yourself immersed in the wild forest, mountain air and spring water of Bulgaria’s undiscovered gem the Bohemian Balkans.

We are a little different to many retreat centers, we are a group of non paid volunteers and residents who invite guests to join us through our yoga community Retreats. & open our space to Guest Coaches to share their teachings.

Resident coaches teach yoga through a variety of styles, including Kundalini Yoga, Elemental Yoga, QiGong Yoga, Vinyasa Hatha, Ashtanga Flow , Restorative, Yin, Yang and other fusion and pilates classes and ceremonies. Our schedule also includes pranayama and daily Meditation plus a weekly local hike with picknick and two plant based community meals a day.

We run three collective retreats, the Earth & Spirit Community Yoga Retreat, and the Wild Forest Awakening Retreat which runs twice a year it can be purchased as a full retreat or as an upgrade to the Earth & Spirit Retreat for guests who are already staying with us.

In addition to this, unique retreats and short courses are held by Guest Coaches in low season. More about these on the drop down menu under the Retreat Hub tab.

How does the Wild Forest Awakening Upgrade Work?

The schedule below is for the Earth & Spirit retreat guests and includes asana, breathwork and meditation classes. It does not include lunch or workshops, guests who book the Wild Forest Awakening Retreat or upgrade will be taken on a deep journey through additional ceremonies, healing and group therapy sessions, energy sessions, workshops and lunch as discribed on the schedule. the upgrade price is inclusive of all of these extras.

What Else Do I Need To Know?

This is a special place and we want you to enjoy and love this community as much as we do. Living in a non commercial environment and reducing our Eco footprint requires acceptance, compassion and compromises. 

Life here is deliberately basic & rustic. We invite you to experience how little we truly need & the lightness that this brings when we reconnect with each other & the elements, as we let go of expectation and attachment to the material world.

Our community embraces the simplicity and culture of rustic Bulgarian mountain village life and recognises the benefits of a reduction in white noise and media influence. Guided by our resident coaches, our guests are supported to develop self-responsibility and practice presence and form wonderful connections within the community whilst experiencing the daily flow of life with the locals.

RisingSoul is situated on the Belitsa River, and surrounded by lush mountain valley forests, on the edge of the cultural and historic town of Tryavna. Here you will find a vibrant international community of diverse and inspiring travellers and coaches. We are waiting to welcome you to the unique experience of living, eating, and breathing yogic and Daoist practice.
