      • Helene Roselstorfer

        YogaWorks and Yogawerstatt Yoga Alliance RYT 200 (Yoga)

        Yoga is a part of Helene's life, even though she was not aware of this for a pretty long time. Yoga consciously happened for the very first time around the year 2005. It was not love at first sight, but she felt straight away that yoga was good to herself, to her body, and to her mind. Yoga and Helene slowly grew closer and closer as time passed, and since 2010, she has been practicing yoga regularly. Her relationship with yoga intensified in 2013 when she attended her first teacher training and so she gradually started teaching yoga as well as practicing it.

      This retreat will take place in the village of Luče ob Savinj, Slovenia. It is located around 20 kilometers from the Austrian border and lies beneath the Savinja Alps, which is the last mountain range before the end of the European Alps. The location is perfect for accessing some of the best and most remote trails in Slovenia and yet it is only a one-hour drive from the capital, Ljubljana.

      Coming from the north, you can cross the mountains from the Austrian side at Bad Eisenkappel into Slovenia, taking you directly to Luče ob Savinj. In case of snow, the motorway via Maribor is a safer and easier option.

      Testimonials

      • Review by Reino Folmer from Utrecht

        "I was part of the Space for Yoga retreat in Tarifa. As a first-time yogi, it was a big bang with 15 hours of yoga in one week. Helene made it easy with helpful comments and it made me feel that I was doing great. Yoga is not a competition, just experience of what feels good, and the retreat definitely felt good. Thanks to Helene and my fellow yogis."
