In this retreat, you will have Kundalini yoga sessions with Andrea Schipper. This class will make you quickly feel the progress you are making as your flexibility improves in the practice of yoga three times a day for a full week. After this retreat, you can strengthen your muscles and balance your body and mind.

Coming from Carinthia and Styria, the Turracher Höhe, with Turracher Lake at its center, can be reached via well-constructed mountain roads. Some visitors might find the dense forests on the Turracher Höhe. This fact is surprising because there is almost no tree that grows in other alpine regions of similar altitude. This is due to the climate and also because the forest is private property and was thus mostly treated with care. The Turracher Höhe features mostly larches and pines, typical mountain trees. Both tree species are known and treasured for their high quality of wood.

Another particularity of the Turracher Höhe is the friendly and roundish appearance of the mountains with grass-covered tops. The name “Nockberge” owes it origins to their special shape. A nature protection area has protected the region for almost 30 years.
