Food & Diet

A big part of attaining any progress in the field of yoga is to understand and alter the how when and what we eat as food. The gut is our second mind and all diseases of the body start with the gut. 

At the Alchemist Retreat, we take special care of your diet and your meals in accordance with the principles of Ayurveda that help us achieve better health and an active and focused mind. 

Ayurveda explains the principle of digestive fire and its optimization during the day. In alignment with these principles, we serve meals only twice a day – which ensures optimum digestion of food, proper absorption, and rebalancing of the inner functioning of the body. Modern science has labeled this wisdom as Intermittent Fasting and come to the conclusion that it is super healthy for the body. 

An expert chef leads the food aspect of the program – with a prior experience in Ayurveda principles and preparing fresh vegetarian meals to aid the yogic process of working on mind and body. 

No kinds of Coffee, Tea, Sugar, Drugs, Smoking, or Alcohol are allowed on the premises during the retreat. 


Master Vidhi will be leading the entire program, from early morning Buddhist meditation to therapeutic Asana practice to delving deep into the understanding of the philosophy of Ayurveda, Yoga, and Chakra Healing.

A top-notch therapist, very few in the world can unfold the subjects of meditation, mind, yoga, and therapy like Master does, owing to his decades-long personal experience on the subjects he works with. 

During the retreat period, participants can schedule 1-on-1 transcendental therapy, massage therapy, or chakra healing session with the master. 


For every retreat we invite expert chefs who have an experience of working on retreats with the Master and understand the demand for simple, nutrient rich food that aligns with the basic principles of Ayurveda. 

Diet is a big part of any personal transformation.

All food served during the retreat is prepared fresh and meticulously designed keeping the demands of healthy living and yoga in mind during the retreat period. 

Lookout for our surprise guest Chef on our next retreat and expect nothing less than to be pleasured by healthy food – which is both vegetarian and more than just leaves and veggies. 


“I hated it, I loved it. At end, I wish it could have gone into 2nd week. I experienced a lifetime of releasing anger, shame, pain, and realizing the power of mind and healing. No words to describe. Thank you Master”

Lots of different classes, like-minded people, many studio rooms, central. I like going there, there’s always something interesting to attend.
I highly recommend.Best Yoga studio in Bucharest. And i love this Studio. It's affordable, and for the reasonable price, You can find really great classes from truly great teachers. I've been practicing yoga at Sambodhi for more than 2 years now. I met so many great Teachers,peoples with very kind heart.Also i met my first yoga teacher Elena in Romania. Every sunday i go her class at Sambodhi. So for me Sambodhi is like a Home.I Would highly recommend Sambodhi to All Yogis.

I attended a few classes and workshops until I became a regular at Rox Barbulescu's class, that I highly enjoy. From the beginning, I appreciated the atmosphere in the studio, all classrooms are nicely decorated, and everyone is nice and welcoming. I recommend this incubator to everyone, specifically mentioning the wide variety of classes, from yoga, pilates, to meditation, qigong and so on. Really lovely place!

Extremely grateful I've found a place like Sambodhi, cause it's more than a place which has all sort of classes, practices, workshops etc. It became a part of my personal healing and growing journey, it's where I've met wonderful human beings that otherwise I most likely wouldn't have met. I've found here support and empathy and an overload of kindness and acceptance. Regardless of which class/practice I'm going to I always feel better, happier, more relaxed, more aligned and without exception I always leave Sambodhi with a smile on my face and thankful I've made it yet to another class. So give yourself this gift that Sambodhi has to give cause it can take sooo many beautiful forms! In a world that tends to be grey, Sambodhi is a 🌈. Namaste 🙏❤️

I started at Sambodhi with the yoga sessions and I liked the energy of the place and the people so much that I became a collaborator and now I teach collage workshops. It is my favorite place to relax, find myself and escape from the daily stress of Bucharest.They have a variety of self-connecting workshops through yoga, dance, meditation, creativity, it's impossible not to find something that resonates with you.The teachers are very well trained and attentive to the needs of the students, the environment is friendly, set up in such a way that you can detach and connect with yourself. And the prices seemed very good to me.I recommend the studio with all confidence!!!! 🙏❤️

We loooooved the studio and the class! Everyone was super friendly and kind. They have several different classes at different times of the day. We did Back Pain focused Yoga for 11 EUR and it was incredible. We loved the teacher and loved that she did it both in Romanian and English so that we could understand the class. 100% recommended.
I love this place. The owner is very friendly and went out of his way to show us around and make us feel welcomed. I recommend it to anyone looking to get out of the quotidian and enjoy some peace and relaxation.

I went to Sambodhi every week in the past month, to yoga classes, guided meditation, reflexology, workshops on manifestation, feminity and family constellations and I can say that the place has a magic of its own. The energy created around there is nothing but pure bliss and enlightenment.The people coming there and the facilitators are kind, open and willing to provide help or support to all the other participants.The facilitators are mostly freelancers so the bookings are made with each of them in particular, also the payment, directly to the facilitator.The studio easily reachable by public transport, being at 13 min walk from University metro station.There is also a small room where you can change, but the belongings must be taken with you in the class as there are no lockers.I truly recommend this place for everyone looking for peace and to learn new technics for emotional self management.Hope to see you there :)

Un loc magic ✨ inspirat din natură în centrul orașului. O comunitate de oameni minunați care pun multă pasiune și iubire în ceea ce fac. Clase de Yoga adaptate pentru orice nivel și disponibilitate, pentru cei matinali sunt clase de dimineață iar cei cu ziua mai plină se pot relaxa seara după agitația de peste zi. Workshop-uri și ritualuri, meditație samanică, constelații, locul in care indiferent cine ești, poți doar sa fii, sigur îți vei găsi tribul și o activitate cu care vei rezona și îți va umple sufletul. O lume mai mica in lumea asta mare și agitată, plină de iubire și armonie creată de un om minunat. Întoarce-te la tine, la natura ta, onoreaza-ți mintea, trupul și sufletul.Namaste ✨

Beautiful studio, with great instructors and sense of community. Each instructor brings something unique to their teaching style. There’s a variety of classes to choose from and yoga mats/equipment available if you don’t have your own. It is a kind and warm space and I couldn’t recommend this studio enough!

Was looking for that place where you can combine mindfulness, mediation and yoga practices in one place. And the studio offered it all! Everyone here, be that staff, guest or teacher, feels like a close, warm friend ☺️ I recommend Sambodhi to all levels of yoga practitioners 💜

Great place, I recommend! The studio is a comfortable, energetically pleasant space in the heart of Bucharest. Most of the instructors are English speaking. But, on the other hand, doing yoga and further shavasana in an unfamiliar language forms new neural connections in you;) I wish you wonderful classes in Sambodhi!

Sambodhi Studio is amazing! The rooms are really nicely arranged. You really feel at peace there. Also, there is a great diversity of courses (either more meditation to really energetic yoga). I can only recommend this place :))

Am mers de la mai multe ori, la diferite clase la Sambodhi si impreuna cu mine am mai convins 3 persoane sa vina. Cu totii am fost foarte incantati de fiecare data.Ma ajuta mult atat din pdv fizic, cu durerile de spate, cat si din pdv psihic, linistindu-ma si ajutandu-ma sa ma relaxez. Imi place programul lor si faptul ca pot sa platesc de fiecare data strict pentru clasa la care merg. Clasele sunt foarte variate.

Since I discovered the place, I came every week for a very authentic yoga practice. People in the studio are nice and friendly and have a good range of yoga classes. Although I stick to Cristina`s class because for me was the best combination of yoga movements and meditation.

Cautam un studio unde sa pot tine clase de yoga si am venit sa vad Studioul Sambodhi. Mi-a placut felul in care este amenajat studioul, faptul ca este localizat in centru, intr-o zona in care gasesti locuri de parcare daca vii cu masina, dar poti ajunge usor si cu alte mijloace de transport. De asemenea, m-a impresionat curatenia studioului, acest lucru fiind remarcat si de participantii la clase :) Atmosfera este una foarte prietenoasa, Marius are grija ca toti cei care trec pragul studioului sa fie intampinati cu caldura si sa se simta bineveniti.

Daca stai sau treci prin Bucuresti, iti recomand sa ajungi la acest studio aparte unde vei gasi oameni frumosi si calzi, gata sa te ghideze intr-o practica de yoga blanda sau sa iti ofere un masaj de neuitat :) Ofera-ti o experienta altfel si vino sa cunosti studioul. Poate te va fermeca inca de la intrare, asa cum m-a fermecat si pe mine :)
