Daily movement, crisp mountain air, deep relaxation and plant-based food made with love. Sound good? MoaAlm offers you a week long yoga retreat at our beautiful home in the meadows and mountains of Austria. You are invited to stretch, release, rejuvenate and meditate in the stunning landscape of the Tyrol Alps. Situated under Austria’s highest peak, we provide a space to promote self-care and switch the mind from a state of turbulence to the bliss of nature, restore your batteries, increase mobility & reconnect with your body.
July 13-20th 2019
For a minimum of 4 participants, we are also able to organise this week throughout the year on request; please enquire for more information...
Our yoga week includes asanas (postures), different meditation techniques, pranayama (breathwork) and a few insights to the yogic philosophy.
We offer one hour of energizing, movement and breath focused morning yoga, one hour of restorative afternoon yoga as well as 30 minutes of guided meditation. The active practice will mobilize your spine, stabilize and strengthen your spine and work your full range of motion. Restorative yoga is about slowing down and opening the body through passive stretching to relax the muscles deeply & restore the free flow of breath. Additionally, we are happy to introduce you to an afternoon of fun and trust building. with partner and acro-yoga.
It doesn’t matter if this is your first time being introduced to yoga or if you already have a personal practice, we do our best to satisfy your individual needs. Also remember, it is not about being “good” at yoga, if you can breathe – you can do yoga. MoaAlm is not just a mountain get-away, we love to inspire and give you tools to take your practice home.
During the week our certified mountain hiking guide will offer guided walks in the area. We love to share our knowledge of the mountains and are keen to show you the most beautiful places the Hohe Tauern National Park has to offer. The guided hikes will take up to four hours. If you have a basic fitness level and no serious knee injuries you will be able to participate.
All activities are optional - you are welcome to stay in/around the house to relax and we are happy to provide you with maps and suggestions if you like to go out for a self-guided walk.
Besides the program you have time to soak in our wood fired hot-tub to sweat out any accumulated stress, taste a glass or two of a delicious local Austrian wine or wander through the forest with the sound of birds in your ears, try your best on the slack line or socialize in the comfortable communal lounge.
Together with a three-course plant-based menu, guided nature hikes in the surrounding mountains with our local guide and a fun-loving team, this week is full of everything that makes yoga an integral practice - on and off your mat.
Our program is subject to weather and group presences, but a week at the retreat should look like this..
