22nd - 28th June, 2019
Join me at The Schloss In Trins, a beautiful space in the heart of the Austrian mountains, for a week of deep rest, nature’s magical healing, feminine flow and true mind, body and soul replenishment.
There is nowhere on earth that I would rather be, than surrounded by nature, in the mountains, breathing in the freshest, purest air and immersing myself in Mama Earth’s magic. Which is why I am so excited to invite you to join me on this women’s immersion retreat in the Austrian Alps in June 2019.
More than just another yoga retreat, this adventure will provide a combination of intuitive movement and embodiment practices that help release tension, create space in the body and re-align your energy, together with radical rest through yoga nidra and meditation, sharing and support through connection in circle and adventurous hiking and healing time in nature.
If you are looking for an experience which will deepen your connection to yourself, restore your energy levels, inspire you, nourish you and give you the chance to embrace your fierce, feminine flow, then this week immersion is for you.
Located in the picturesque village of Trins in Tirol, The Schloss is nestled in a stunning Alpine valley only 25 mins from Innsbruck but in the heart of untouched mountain scenery.
The ethos at The Schloss is simple - unique accommodation, attentive service, inspiring scenery and great food. The traditional, yet unique Austrian house, which has been in the Saker family for centuries, is spacious and filled with character offering beautiful views and a calming and relaxing energy to help you feel at ease and at home.
Set in the picturesque Tyrollean farming town of Trins at 1,223m above sea level, Schloss Schneeberg is only 25 minutes from Innsbruck and 20km from the Brenner Pass into Italy. Trins is a lovely village; peaceful, tranquil and filled with natural beauty as well as being one of the sunniest spots in the Wipptal area. The mountains surrounding Trins are some of the richest with flora in the Alps and criss-crossed by more than 300km of hiking and biking trails, making it perfect for exploring nature’s gifts.
Meals will be vegetarian, and produce used is organic whereever possible and sourced from Austria or as locally as possible. When ever possible meals will be served on the 13th century tower with 360 degree views of the mountains and village, the sound of the river below. Breakfast includes things such as seasonal fruit, over night oats, home made sourdough, foraged berry compotes and boiled eggs from local hens. Dinner flavours are based on a mix of European, Middle Eastern & Asian influences whilst also incorporating principles of healing through food. Dietary requests can be catered for.
We will enjoy two lunches and one evening meal out in the local area, taking in the scenery and sampling the local cuisine. These meals will not be included in the retreat price.
How to get there?

Transfers on arrival and departure days from Innsbruck, whether arriving by plane, train or private transfer, are included in the retreat price.

Our days will look a little like this…
Check in: 3pm, 22nd June, 2019
Check out: 11am, 28th June, 2019
Please note… all activities are optional – this is your break and you can choose to do as much or as little as feels right for your mind and body.
Most mornings will include a yoga inspired movement practice which will vary each day, and simple meditation, intention setting for the day, followed by a shared breakfast and then leisurely time to enjoy and relax around the area in groups or in solitude depending on your desire.
After lunch we will spend the afternoon immersing ourselves in nature with explorations on foot in the mountain area, followed by free time, an evening yoga nidra practice and optional sharing circle, then a delicious dinner to finish off our day.
The idea of this retreat is not to be constricted by strict schedules or rigid structure, we will flow with the weather, the energy of the group and days will vary. On at least two days we will take to the mountains for a day in the fresh air, with one all day hike, and there are additional optional activities such as bike hire, climbing and other adventurous experiences should you feel drawn to them.
While this is a guided immersion, if you crave exploration then you are more than welcome to follow your curiosities.
