Yoga and Outdoor Activities Retreat

This holiday is something for you if you are looking for a relaxing and healthy start of the new year, if you love nature, or if you are simply looking for a special winter holiday in a beautiful place. This week is all about self-care and taking time for yourself! Delta Yoga has designed a program to feed body, mind and soul with delicious vegan food, daily yoga & meditation sessions and outdoor activities to enjoy nature. The yoga classes and other activities will be tailored to the individuals in the group and previous experience is not needed. All activities are optional, so if you rather stay in and enjoy the comfortable lounge room or wood fired hot tub you're welcome to do so!

Start 2020 with a week of self-care: enjoying yoga, meditation, healthy plant based food and outdoor activities in some of the most stunning sceneries nature has to offer. Moaalm Mountain Retreat is your home away from home. This remote mountain house has simple but beautiful rooms, an outdoor hot tub and unforgettable views. It is the perfect place to relax and restore. Allow yourself to be pampered by your host, yoga teacher and mountain guide Barbara and the entire Moaalm team.

Moaalm Mountain Retreat is your remote and private home away from home for the week. This beautifully renovated mountain house is situated at 1800 meter in the middle of Hohe Tauern National Park, just 3 kilometer above the village of Kals am Grossglockner. The house has 6 thoughtfully decorated and spacious guest rooms. The rooms have en suite bathrooms and stunning views. Downstairs you will find the living room, where you can curl up on the sofa with a book and enjoy good food at the shared dining table. The in-house yoga studio has a large panoramic window with gorgeous views of the mountains. The morning sunrise fills the room with energy and the late afternoon sunset turns the mountains a beautiful shade of pink.

Program

Yoga and meditation

During the week there will be twice daily yoga & meditation classes. The morning sessions are active but mindful vinyasa flow classes, followed by breath work and guided meditation. In the afternoons you will practice a mixture of restorative yoga, yoga nidra and yin yoga. Depending on the weather and preferences within the group more classes might be offered. All classes are tailored to the individuals in the group so that everyone can participate at their own level and pace. Barbara loves to create classes that empower, that establish a better relationship between mind and body and that create the right energy for the time of day. Classes are themed, but always have a strong focus on the breath. Barbara is a certified and experienced yoga & meditation teacher and mindfulness trainer.

Snow shoe hiking

Snow covered mountains are a quiet winter wonder land that is best explored by foot. During the week Barbara and the Moaalm team will take you on guided mountain walks to soak up the peace and beauty nature has to offer. We might see wildlife, such as ibexes, deer and eagles. You will be provided with snow shoes and hiking poles and explain everything you need to know about snow shoe hiking, no previous experience is required. The duration and level of challenge of the hikes will vary throughout the week, to allow you to pick and choose what suits you best. Do you prefer to go out on your own? No problem, various hiking trails start at the house and they can provide you with maps and suggestions!

Other activities

In addition to yoga classes and the guided hikes there is more to explore! The road leading up to the house is a tobogganing run and there are sledges for you to use. If conditions allow and people are interested they will offer a cross country ski or iglo building workshop free of charge. There is no age limit to having fun in the snow! Alternatively you can also go skiing on the pistes of the nearby GG-resort or book an ice climbing workshop at the local mountain guide office. These activities will be at additional costs.

Daily program

The program always depends on the weather conditions and how you feel, but a day in this retreat might look like this:

  • 07:00 Wake up with a cup of tea and some fruit, or sleep in a little longer - it's your vacation, so always your choice
  • 08:00 Yoga, breath work and meditation practice
  • 09:30 Breakfast
  • 11:00 Snow shoe hike starting from the house, exploring the beautiful mountain scenery. Today you might bring a packed lunch, so we find a pick nick spot with breathtaking views. You might also decide to not join the hike and enjoy some me-time with a book on the sofa in the cozy living room
  • 15:30 Afternoon tea & cake
  • 17:00 Restorative yoga
  • 18:00 Hot tub time! Enjoy the sun set from the steaming outdoor hot tub overlooking the mountains
  • 19:30 Dinner at the shared dining table
  • 21:00 After dinner you might want to join a board game, go for an evening stroll in the snow, join an extra evening mediation or go the bed early

All activities are optional. This week is about self-care and tuning in into what it is you need in the moment.

Retreat location

The retreat takes place in Kals am Grossglockner, Austria. You will be hiking in Hohe Tauern National Park. It's a magical place, much wilder and more deserted than most of the Alps. Wildlife roams around in the forests, on the mountain slopes and in the sky. Because you are situated at the main alpine ridge, snow conditions are usually good. Most of the ski resort is built on the other side of the mountains, so the valley of Kals is unspoiled. From the valley there are endless options to hike and explore nature!

Food

At Moaalm Mountain Retreat you will enjoy 3 delicious plant based meals a day. The food is sourced locally and organic whenever possible. All meals are prepared with lots of love. During breakfast there will be granola with plant based yogurt, seeds, nuts and fruits, bread and spreads, juices and other goodies. For lunch we might bring a packed lunch on our hike or enjoy a soup or salad at the house. In the afternoon we are treated with tea and cake, because cake always makes life better! Dinner is healthy, hearty and looks like party on a plate. With dinner they serve a glass of local wine, it's a holiday after all. All day tea and fruits are available to you.
