Jan Tomas

Jan’s journey on the yoga path began in 2003 with doing daily Hatha yoga on his own. Within the next four years, he studied more than 700 hours of courses and training in yoga-related subjects and practices. Since the year 2009, Jan participated in a number of Buddhist Vipassana courses from the Satipatthana tradition.

Wolfgang Eisenbeutl

Wolfgang was first exposed to the yoga tradition at the age of 17 as he traveled in 2001, with Jan Tomas, the co-founder of the Alpen Retreat. This has greatly expanded his horizons, though it was not yet the time to start with the practice of yoga and spirituality. Spiritual singing and music is one of his great passions and is a major influence in his teachings as well as his personal experiences in various traditions such as Kriya yoga, Hatha yoga, Tantra yoga, Hridaya yoga, Buddhist meditation, psycho-spiritual work, and shamanism.

Kari Zabel

As a former US Navy jet pilot, she is usually still inverted on her mat.

Beatrice Williams

Beatrice Williams was raised in the outstanding beauty of the Austrian Alps.

    Sehr motivierte und herzliche Inhaber, Oster-Retreat Aktivitäten wunderbar aufeinander abgestimmt

    Alpen Retreat is the place where I felt the most comfortable ever. It is not a hotel, it is a home. As soon as you arrived, you feel welcomed and at ease. Every room is beautiful, clean, and cosy. There are even a small library and a warm living room with huge snug couches. The attic is a big special place where you can practice yoga, meditation, or participate in a workshop. The landscape as well is breathtaking. Of course Alpen Retreat has some rules, but they really are common sense to insure that everybody has a good time. For instance, no shoes in the house as the first rule. But you can choose from many different nice slippers to cover your feet. Every thing was thought to make you feel good. The food is delicious and there are fruits and a huge selection of teas and coffees on self service all day long. You can drink it from your mug that you can pick from many different mugs and take it with you from room to room and reuse it as many times as you want like you do at home. Every helper and owner are really here to make sure your needs are heard and answered, so you will spend a great time in this very special place. I am really grateful for my stay there, thank you!

    The Alpen Retreat was a nice place with friendly and helpful staff, and we enjoyed our stay there. A fine tuning of a few things would mean that I would consider coming back instead of just renting a flat in a skiing resort and doing my own yoga. First of all, the house was a little bit too cold most of the time. But they were in the process of buying a new heating system, so that is probably fixed by next winter. The food could be more interesting. If you are in the market for Scandinavian guests who will have higher expectations about the food, it has to be clear on the English website that it is vegetarian. Finally, since it is a combined yoga and snow sports retreat, the yoga program should take the snow sports activities of the participants into account from the beginning. Overall, the yoga program improved a lot after we voiced our wishes clearly. It would have been more comfortable and useful had the instructors enquired about our expectations, interests, and levels to begin with. I would recommend the Alpen Retreat to young yogis who are fascinated by the philosophy and want to be inspired. And to those, who are just looking for a cheap and friendly place to live for a few days.

    We had a fantastic stay in the AlpenRetraet recently and really enjoyed our time. All people there were sooo lovely. We booked for 4 Nights and enjoyed our great time with the lovely located rooms in the middle of beautiful mountains and forest. The view was fantastic when you wake up in the morning and look outside of your room. The food was great and organic and cooked fresh every day. Many thanks to Beatrice, Wolfgang, Jan and all the others. We will definitely come back in Summer or Winter. In Winter time the beautiful surrounding invites you for great skiing experience. The organization was fantastic and you should definitely book your stay in combination with the great Yoga offerings. The yoga room has a quit and relaxing atmosphere and a great view as well.

    Very well located on the way between Bavaria and Tyrol, close to the road for easy access but very calm, surrounded by amazing nature (mountains, river, forest, lake). Beautiful guest house, 500 years old, well renovated. Tasty home-cooked vegetarian food and herbal tea from the garden. Generous breakfast. Friendly and welcoming host community. Atmosphere influenced by yoga and well-being. House serving both for yoga retreats and bnb.

    I just came from a 2 week retreat and I can't stop thinking how great this experience was. The place is very cosy and it's surroundings are amazing. The mountains, the waterfall, the autumn colors... Also, the team is wonderful. Warm hearted people, kind, always with a smile for you and excellent cuisine chefs :) I do highly recommend this place and their retreats

  • Melissa O.

    Alpen Retreat website

    The Alpine Retreat is a wonderful place to get away and reconnect with nature, friends, or just yourself. Marie, our hostess, was wonderfully friendly, welcoming, and offered lots of suggestions for things we could do in the area. We went showshoeing, tobogganing, and hiking. If you are able to share a dinner from the kitchen - do it! The vegetarian food is awesome -- perfect healthy and hearty food to wrap up a day of outdoor activity. The rooms are tidy and decorated with a surprisingly fluid mix of old Tirol and Eastern styles. The faint aroma of incense freshens the hallways, and a large open yoga and meditation room (which was always open for use!) encourages utter relaxation. The retreat is kind of out of the way, but that's really what makes it so great-- amazing views of the mountains and hiking opportunities right outside. Stay here. You won't be disappointed.

  • Sandra N.

    I just stayed at AlpenRetreat for a long weekend and was surprised with such a relaxing and inspiring time, that it felt like an entire holiday – far away from everyday life. Everyone was authentically warm and comforting. People from the retreat, not only shared their truly lovely place, but also stories from their lives. Everything far far succeeded my expectations. A spontaneous snow board lesson in puffy powdery snow, an intro to meditation, the opportunity to practice yoga, cuddling up to the old fashioned tile oven (Kachelofen), meaningful conversations over food prepared with love and creativity... what more can you possibly wish for? Thank you so much! I will find some time to return, for sure.

    A perfectly tranquil, scenic, and warm-hearted retreat space in the Austrian Himalayas. What touched our hearts the most is the intention of this amazing space. The founders, who are all good friends now, make the happiness of guests and everyone a priority in every aspect. This intention makes the center run harmoniously and beneficially for all who have the opportunity to come. Even the little critters in their compost are treated with respect and good wishes, therefore they are delighted in helping to nourish the tomatoes, salad greens, and other deliciously organic food in the center's garden. The founders Beatrice, Wolfgang, Jan, and Fraser are inspiring to no end, and we have seen them happily help many visitors individually to be well informed and meaningfully-entertained whether it be only at Alpen Retreat in Tyrol, and even around Europe in general. If you're coming for a yoga or meditation retreat, you will certainly enjoy and benefit from the peaceful, quiet, and spiritual atmosphere that so many have helped to create. The upstairs yoga and meditation hall radiate personal transformation into love and wisdom. You'll be delighted in waking up every morning to invigorating incense and the opportunity to explore the true meaning and depths of your precious human life.

    What is not to love about Alpen Retreat? The Alpen Retreat is a hidden gem in a very beautiful area. Excellent hosts, incredible vegetarian or vegan food, lovely rooms, a beautiful meditation yoga hall, and wonderful programs. The Alpen Retreat is practically perfect in every way! I have attended three workshops or retreats now and will definitely be back for more!

    Best place for a relaxing yoga vacation! You will find inner peace in the middle of the Tyrolean Alps. Check it out!

  • Janine

    Das 3. Jahr komme ich nun schon mit meiner Tochter zum Sufi Tanzen und Mantrasingen mit Glen im Alpenretreat. Ich liebe die Atmosphäre, die Glen mit seiner authentischen Art kreiert. Das Gefühl von Zusammengehörigkeit und Geborgenheit darf in der Gruppe entstehen über diese 3 Tage gemeinsamen Tanzens und Singens. Sehr schnell komme ich wieder mehr im Herzen und somit bei mir selbst an. Der ein oder andere Knoten, mit dem ich angekommen bin, darf sich lösen und mit mehr Klarheit, Ruhe und Gelassenheit, die in mir entsteht verlasse ich nach diesem sagenhaften Wochenende die Tiroler Berge. Danke Glen and danke an das unschlagbare Alpenretreat Team.
