  • Bad Mitterndorf Austria (map)

Ring in the new year in the austrian alps with mindfulness, functional strength & mobility training.This retreat is an opportunity to get away from it all, soak in the silence and majesty of winter in the alps, while exploring new ways to move your body. If you are a progressive thinker and embrace that yoga can take on different forms, this is your jam!

We will have a 2.5 hours morning practice and 2 hours in the afternoon. In between the sessions the surrounding nature invites for skiing, snow-shoe walking, ice-skating on lakes, relaxing at the local thermal spa.  One day in the middle of the week, we will only have an afternoon practice so that those who wish to go skiing (loser and tauplitz are close) can enjoy a full day on the slopes.

THE PRACTICE
The premise we will work with is that life places all kinds of different demands on our body. So if we want to be strong in a variety of contexts, our practice needs to reflect that.Expect to practice a great variety of strength, mobility and proprioceptive exercises including theraband work, squatting, balancing exercises, jumping, pushing, pulling, lifting things and more.

THE LOCATION
The program will take place at a private residence in Bad Mitterndorf, Austria.
This Alpine Luxury Residence offers a unique, comfortable and relaxing stay in one of the most unspoilt areas of Austria. Surrounded by lakes, mountains and forest this is the perfect place to access pristine nature and visit some special places of interest. 

The house features wooden beams, natural clay walls, stone ceilings and floors, wood burning stoves and fireplaces. At the heart of this exquisitely renovated residence, you can enjoy the restored features of what was once a blacksmith’s workshop which give this modern and stylish building a sense of mystique and history.

As well as being a great living space this residence boasts a collection of elegant Bronze & Marble statues that add to the decadence of your stay.

Adding to the romance of this beautiful location there are 3 open fireplaces and two wood-burning stoves. One open fireplace is located in the outside gallery so you can enjoy the view and the fresh air whilst sitting outside by the fire.
