Dracula’s Retreat: “It’s not just coming to do exercise and fitness, it’s fun, it’s allowing you to connect with people”

Alexandra was among the pioneers on Dracula’s Retreat. Dracula’s Retreat is a weekend getaway at a location in Transylvania, Romania, near Dracula’s Castle (Bran Castle).

Dracula’s Retreat aims to take busy professionals out of the big city and into the countryside where they enjoy great local food, learn about the Transylvanian culture, visit Dracula’s Castle and boost their fitness through natural movement fitness.

The levels of fitness are from beginners to advanced, everyone gets something of value out of the training and the retreat.

Here is Alexandra talking about her experience, with emphasis on the fitness which she enjoyed the most.

“I did more than I thought I’d be able to do. It was amazing for me, it was a great achievement. I can do things that I wasn’t aware I could do. It’s not just coming to do exercise and fitness, it’s fun, it’s allowing you to connect with people”
