Volunteering in a yoga retreat centre in the Austrian Alps!

The two months I spent in Alpen Retreat were absolutely amazing. You live in a house surrounded by mountains with a breathtaking view every morning. The work is staright forward and pretty simple, and you get a lot of free time to explore around. It's a place to reconnect with yourself and nature, and to meet beautiful souls from all over the world. On our free time we went walking in the mountains, to the lake, skiing and to cities close by. I even got the chance to participate in some yoga and meditation courses, which opened my heart incredibly. I truly recommend this place to everyone!

The Center is big family always expanding. I had my first volunteering experience here and it was really nice. I had a warm bed and healthy food available every day. I learned a lot about myself and others, I learned about how to manage such a big house. I felt respected. The only advice that I would give is to please remember we are also travelers, the reason I joined Worldpackers was to get to know the nearby areas, there was flexibility. I definitely recommend this place. I was even able to attend to some retreats ❤️ I'm grateful!!! Thank you Elly and Wolfgang ✨🇦🇹❤️☀️

The Center was my first volunteering experience and whoa it was PERFECT!! I felt like home, like a part of the family. If I ever had a problem, in work or even in my own personal life, I was heard and helped. I would recommend this place for everyone, cause this place/people helped me so much and made my time here so magical and memorable. I'm beyond happy and thankful to be part of this beautiful place ❤️

I enjoyed my experience at the Alpen retreat! Elly and Wolfgang are such lovely and understanding people and will be flexible for your needs and wants! I was only here a month but i felt at home within a few weeks:) The work is quite easy and straightforward and you will always have time to relax and have some time for yourself! The accommodation for the volunteers is cosy and simple. The meals were very good and Elly is open for you to be creative within the kitchen! my time spent here helped me develop and connect with myself and nature, a very good first volunteer experience:)

I instantly felt welcomed by Elly, Wolfgang and the other volunteers. I was welcomed with big hugs and smiling faces. I never once doubted if I belonged at Alpen Retreat and that was a very important feeling to me. The work exchange was great with working 6 hours a day helping with cleaning, cooking and other various task. I learned so much just within the 4 weeks I was there such as yoga, meditation & cooking. I feel like I'm truly coming back into “the real world” wanting to live a healthier lifestyle because of Alpen Retreat. Can't wait to come back 💗

I loved my time at Alpen Retreat. The hosts and other volunteers are so welcoming and lovely and I felt part of a beautiful community. I learned a lot and loved being in such a beautiful environment both in the retreat and with the surrounding mountains and lakes! It was also great for my dietary requirements which made me feel even more at home. Would highly recommend:))

It was a wonderful experience, Elly and Wolfgang are amazing people and the whole the Center team is spectacular. It was my first volunteer and I am completely grateful for everything, it was months that changed my life and certainly helped me and become a better person. The work is very quiet and everything is explained with a lot of affection and attention, you feel part of the family and learn much more than you could imagine. Without a doubt I will return to the Center and recommend it to everyone who wants to experience an incredible journey.

Alpen retreat was my very first Worldpackers experience, also my first time solo traveling abroad or ever going to Europe! It was truly a magical experience, I arrived at night time with a friend that I met a few days before, and was welcomed in with hugs and warm food by all of the other volunteers that stayed up waiting for us to get there :) Elly is such an incredibly sweet soul, her and Wolfgang are very accommodating to any schedule change needed, they invite us to participate in activities whenever possible :) and the food is really great! I learned so much about plant based diets

That experience for me was incredible, I felt like home since the first day. The people were my family during the 2 months I spent there and they will keep in my heart forever. The owners are very kind and their child is a special and cute kid 🥰. The food is totally delicious and the landscapes that surround the Retreat are completely beautiful. I'm very grateful to Alpen Yoga Retreat, this experience will stay in my heart forever. Thank youu Elly & Wolfgang ❤️❤️❤️

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!
