The beautiful nature of the Tyrolean Alps is the ideal place to leave all the stress and worries of daily life behind you and find again your inner stillness that brings you your wellbeing. Every human strives to be happy. Yoga helps you to rediscover the present moment and find yourself in it. The combination of having fun in the snow and yoga is the perfect mix to decelerate.
The guest rooms and community rooms in the Alpen Retreat are lovingly designed. Each room has a special theme, mostly chosen from the different countries the Alpen Retreat team has visited on their travels.
The mixture of international ambiance and traditional Tyrolean charm creates a particularly beautiful and homey atmosphere. Lounging out on your room side terrace overlooking the Fern Pass valley and adjacent Zugspitz arena, you can enjoy year-round sunshine, thanks to Alpen Retreat's southward facing position.
After a day spent on the slopes or hiking through Alpine forests, you will be able to relax in the traditional “stube” with gorgeous wood paneling and traditional farmers “kachel” stove. If you wish to experience tranquility on a whole new level, you can take advantage of Alpen Retreat's yoga and meditation sessions as well as the nearby spas.
During your stay, you are very welcome to use the community rooms in the Alpen Retreat, such as the traditional Tyrolean stube (living room), the dining room, the library, and the yoga hall.
On four days of this week, according to weather, the abilities and wishes of the group, the fitting ski resort will be picked. The joy that you feel during winter sport, on a ski, snowboards, or cross-country skiing, is even enhanced through the meditative and balanced yoga practice that you do. On the other days, the afternoon is free for your own adventures.
The yoga session always starts with a short block of theory where the basics of a traditional yoga practice are explained. You will practice meditation, Hatha yoga, pranayama, and deep relaxation. These tools help you to discover a new awareness of body, mind, and emotions. A short sentence describes very well the motto of the yoga that you do together: It is not important to touch your toes in yoga but what you learn on the way down.
Because of that, this yoga style is equally applicable for beginners or advanced practitioners. Everybody decides for them self how deep they want to go in there practice. Of course, the effects of yoga are equally strengthening and balancing for the entire body, the skeleton, the muscles, the respiratory, and the nervous system. A perfect preparation for a lighthearted day in the snow.
In the later afternoon, you integrate the experiences of the day, relax the muscles, and mind with a very chilled out yoga session. After dinner, you have the choice either to see an interesting documentary or just enjoy yourself.
Questions and different subjects asked by the participants can be integrated into the course if it is aligned with the group. The goal of the course is that in the end, you will be able to make up your own yoga program which you can then practice at home on your own.
