In January 2018 MoaAlm Mountain Retreat was featured by The Guardian newspaper as one of the best retreats in the world for mind, body and spirit breaks. Join this yoga retreat if you are interested in mindfulness, curious about your relationship with nature, or if you just need a break to relax and get back to the simple thing in life. This retreat takes place in the pristine Alpine wilderness of Austria’s Hohe Tauern National Park. You will enjoy a mindfulness and nature course, daily yoga sessions, delicious local organic food, stunning wild mountain landscapes, local fauna and meadows full of spring flowers.
The MoaAlm Mountain Retreat has comfortable single, double, twin or triple rooms with en-suite bathroom. The rooms are stylishly decorated and spacious and sizes vary up to 24 square meters. All rooms have an en-suite private bathroom and stunning views. Some have balconies but not all. All rooms can be made up with one double or two single beds. After an active day in the outdoors you can enjoy the astonishing view from the sunny terrace or relax in the living room, enjoy a drink at the bar, curl up on the sofa with a magazine or book, or enjoy a meal at the shared dining table.
The in-house yoga studio has a panoramic mountain view and is the perfect place for an active start of the day or for a relaxing session of restorative yoga in the afternoon. In the morning the sunrise fills the room with energy and the late afternoon turns the mountains pink.
Mindfulness is a non-judgemental way of paying attention to the unfolding of the experience in the present moment. It is noticing and appreciating life within you and around you. Because mindfulness is about paying attention to life, there is no better place to discover it than surrounded by life at its purest... in one of Europe’s largest and wildest nature reserves, the Hohe Tauern National Park. During this one week course, you will learn mindfulness through theory and practice, why practising mindfulness of the natural world is important for happiness and well-being, how spending time in nature and watching wildlife can make you more mindful, why being mindful of nature is essential for creating a more sustainable world. You will also learn that practising mindfulness in nature is relaxing, peaceful and really fun.
Daily outdoor activities like hiking are included in this retreat.
