They have all done many retreats and spent long periods in Asia studying under various masters. Seeking to harmonize their lifestyle, integrate their yogic experience all year round and share this experience with as many people as possible, the AlpenRetreat was born.

The experience was outstanding. Surrounded by beautiful nature and scenery with plenty of places to hike at! The retreat itself has a wonderful atmosphere. I enjoyed meditating and the sessions there very much! Work is fair and balanced! It’s easy to get along and get used to it! The foods are delicious too. Elly and Wolfgang were wonderful people with much welcoming energies. I would absolutely recommend anyone who are nature lovers and passionate in spirituality!

Thank you Kouhei, it was really nice to meet you and we're happy you joined the team, if only for a short visit. Enjoy New Zealand! We wish you all the best, Elly, Wolfgang and Elijah :)



My 3 months at AlpenRetreat was truly a life changing experience. This is a magical place with space for a lot of self development. You will share the experience with like minded people and these people will become your little family. We were so close and felt so safe in each others company. There is space for everyone, no matter your culture and background. I was so lucky to both experience the winter and spring here, and can recommend both. Elly and Wolfgang (the hosts) are very lovely people as well, and they have the most beautiful son inside out. Missing everyone and everything<333

Alpenretreat is a special place. Spend time here and you have the opportunity to experience a different pace of life. You can get out in the fresh air to explore nature or have peace to look inward. Use your initiative to make the most of what Tyrol has to offer: I hiked miles, checked out Innsbruck, went skiing in St Anton, visited Munich. I also spent time on my own yoga practice in the yoga hall and joined some retreat classes (eek most were German!).
The work is full on when you are on shift but the tasks are clear and fair. Stay for more than a month to understand the flow of the house!

I love spent time in Alpen retreat, surrounded by nature especially beautiful mountain and full of resources to promote you to connect with your self for example library , yoga hall, meditation room. Besides I get some chance to join a yoga session in Retreat Course. Practicing yoga form YouTube by myself makes help me, now I can picture about my future life path clearer. Other facilities that impressed me is the kitchen with well equipped and the room we stay is really cozy. Some recommendations is if the host could engage and communicate more with the volunteer, My stay will be perfect.
