Spend time in the Austrian Alps, Nassereith, Austria

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionHi guys :)
    We are a team of four, one Scot and three Tiroleans, one brother and sister and two friends. We live at 1200m in the Austrian Alps. Our goal is to unite the variety of nature, yoga, recuperation, meditation, and sport.
    Our life philosophy is tightly connected to yoga and we seek to live as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible. .
    We are a vegetarian/vegan household and will provide all the meals for you.

    In 2018 we founded a non-profit organization that runs alongside a yoga retreat centre. To stay with us you will need to be signed up as a club member. We live here in a community that has about 12 people (this does not include the guests who stay at the yoga retreat).

    Come and experience life with us and learn about yoga and meditation. We have a beautiful yoga hall that is free for club members to use when it is not being used by retreat guests and we offer participation in yoga classes and meditations as much as is possible.

    We look forward to hosting you!
