„I noticed how earth had such a nurturing presence, like a mother. How she keeps me rooted. How the Air was the intellectual who had bring messages about change and transitions. How the Fire was bold, fierce and life giving. How the water was a good listener who could support me when I was tuning into feeling.“

WHERE: Amidst the stunning beauty of the Ahrntal Valley in South Tyrol, Italy: a place filled with energy. Forget the stress and strains of everyday life and breathe freely in Italy’s only healing caves in Predoi-Prettau! Listen to the sound of the wind rustling the leaves and cool your feet in the refreshing waters of a fast-flowing mountain stream. Simply come and be, surrender to sensory experiences, dare to try something else and discover!

Unwind, enjoy life and return home a tiny bit healthier. All it takes is the right mix of clean air and the awareness of nature's own healing powers.

The Valli di Tures e Aurina/Tauferer Ahrntal Valley is the ideal place for such an ambitious undertaking. Cozily nestled in the heart of the Vedrette di Ries Aurina/Rieserferner Ahrn Nature Park, it is a true oasis of peace filled with vast, lush green forests, pure air and skin-friendly mountain waters.

 

HEALING IN THE ELEMENTS:

The nearby waterfalls are surrounded by a gentle mist of tiny water drops, which cleanse the tissue of the respiratory system and lungs, providing great relief.

The FOOD:

"We believe food should be beautiful and enjoyed slowly and mindfully, either for yourself or with people you care about." yin yang sisters

 

Ari & Lauren, the yin yang sisters, will treat you with a delicious and nourishing plant-based culinary adventure. We aren’t diet and detox girls and believe in eating whole foods with balance, which means there is always room for dessert.

We will help you to tap into what is good for your body and mind. We both love spending time in nature, connecting with our community, getting out of our comfort zones, creating, and enjoying plenty of self-care moments.

You can find us savoring our food, discussing what we should eat next, and talking longingly about our last meals.

 

ROOMS:

16 lovely human beings will be sharing accommodation with a fellow retreat guest or a friend.

Requests are welcome and will be taken in consideration.
