Included excursions

This yoga week includes asanas (postures), different meditation techniques, pranayama (breathwork) and a few insights to the yogic philosophy.

The active practice will mobilize your spine and stabilize, strengthen and work your range of motion. Restorative yoga is about slowing down and opening the body through passive stretching to relax the muscles deeply and restore the free flow of breath.

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.

Besides the program you have time to soak in our wood fired hot-tub, sweat out any accumulated stress, taste a glass of a delicious, local 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.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Driving directions from Kals

  • Once you have reached Kals, you drive through the village past the church and the small supermarket.
  • You basically leave the village again.
  • At the first, Y-fork keep right, following the green signs 'Moaralm'.
  • At the second fork, keep left at the beautiful wooden house with the blue/white balconies.
  • Keep all the way right at the third and final fork, driving past a small parking area and up the mountain to MoaAlm.
  • From the final fork it's a 10 minute drive to MoaAlm.

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Salzburg Airport (SZG) or Innsbruck Airport (INN). Airlines are constantly changing routes and the only way to make sure you have an up to date guide is by going directly to the websites.

You can also fly into Munich and Ljubljana. If you fly into these airports, MoaAlm advises that you rent a car to transfer to MoaAlm.

MoaAlm is not the easiest destination to get to. The best places never are, that’s why they avoid the crowds. Depending on your means of transportation, the organizer will meet you at MoaAlm, Huben (a nearby village with a bus stop, 20 minutes’ drive to MoaAlm), or Lienz (the capital of East Tirol, 30 minutes’ drive to MoaAlm).

You can rent a car and drive yourself. This option allows you to explore on your way here. For example, you could skip the Felbertauern tunnel and take the Grossglockner Hoch Alpin Strasse into Osttirol - a stunning mountain road with amazing views. Car rental starts at 140EUR per week.

Arrival by bus

You can travel to MoaAlm by bus and/or train from Innsbruck and Salzburg to Lienz or Huben in Osttirol. From Innsbruck main train station there is a direct bus to Lienz four times per day. MoaAlm will pick you up in Lienz or Huben. This is often the cheapest but most time-consuming option. Public transportation in Austria is very reliable and the platforms and directions are clearly indicated.

Arrival by train

If you don't like flying or driving yourself it might be a good idea to take a train all the way to Austria. The land links in Austria are very reliable.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 20% of the total price.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
  • The rest of the payment should be paid 14 days before arrival.
