The Alpen Retreat's cozy rooms are all inspired by the themes and cultures they have come across on their travels, blended tastefully with the traditional Tyrolean style. Lounging out on your room side terrace overlooking the Fernpass valley and adjacent Zugspitz arena, you can enjoy year around sunshine thanks to our southward facing position.


The main style of Yoga taught is Tantra/Hatha. In this practice, we hold asanas for longer periods to experience a deeper energetic activation and the opening of the body.

During the course, you will be taught practices from the Traditional Tantric practices of India. This includes fire ceremony, working with the science of Yantras (mandala) and Mantra meditation. These teachings are taught in a devotional way to combine the science of tantra with the path of the heart. The course is a sacred journey into the ancient arts of Yoga and is supported by Guru Ji Raj Kumar.

During the training, we will also study cleansing kriyas and pranayama to purify the mind and deepen our ability to be centered and present in life. The regular devotional singing of kirtan and Hridaya meditation will give you a personal opportunity to open the energy of the heart.

The theory elements cover many topics always including Yogic Philosophy and ancient scriptures such as Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and an introduction into the Ribhu Gita and Devi Gita of ancient India, Ayurveda, anatomy, sacred sexuality.

Retreat location

This training is hosted in the heart of the Austrian Alps. Tirol’s Alps are a true fountain of strength: crystal clear water, lush green pasturelands, picture-book mountains and clean air. The location is surrounded by breathtaking beauty and unspoilt nature, Tirol is the perfect place for us to explore the depths of yoga.

A family-like sanctuary for authentic spiritual and personal development caring for the individual, the community and the planet. Located near the main pass through the Alps, The Alpen Retreat is situated on the “Via Claudia Augusta”, a historic Roman road utilised by countless travellers including Napoleon during his march into Italy. At 1200 meters, this 500-year-old former manor house blends seamlessly into a mountain panorama of pine forests, jagged peaks and crystal clear Alpine lakes.
