The MoaAlm Mountain Retreat has comfortable single, double, twin or triple rooms with en-suite bathroom. The rooms are stylishly decorated and spacious, with sizes varying 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 to the day or 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 way of paying attention to whatever is happening in your life. It will not eliminate life's pressures, but it can help you respond to them in a calmer manner that benefits your heart, head, and body. It provides you with a scientifically researched approach to cultivating clarity, insight, and understanding. Practising mindfulness allows you to be fully present in your life and work, and improve your quality of life. The yoga classes will be taught in the in-house yoga studio with panoramic views over the mountains or, when the weather allows, you might also enjoy a few yoga sessions outside. The outdoor activities will mostly be hikes or walks of one to three hours. During these activities you will practice mindfulness exercises. The hikes or walks will be guided by a certified mountain hiking guide and your mindfulness trainer, Claire Thompson, will join as well to help you out with the exercises. During the middle of the week, there will be one day off, so you may go to explore the mountains, visit the beautiful city of Lienz, or relax on the sunny terrace.
The word yoga means union in Sanskrit. By synchronising your breathing to the movements of your body you enhance your physical endurance and you learn to better understand your own body. Yoga poses will help you to improve your flexibility and strength. Yoga is for everyone; it does not matter how old, fit or flexible you are! The yoga classes are always tailored to individual needs so that everyone can participate at their own level and pace.
Outdoor activities to explore and enjoy mindfulness practices are included in this retreat.
