Sivananda Yoga Retreat House

Sivananda Yoga Retreat House

IN REITH near KITZBÜHEL, Tyrol, Austria

Discover yoga as a holistic lifestyle: We practise and teach traditional yoga for better health, balance of mind and inner peace.

Visit us for yoga vacation and stay as long as you like – in winter, the magical snowy landscape awaits you, and in summer, practise outdoors on the wooden platform. Hike year-round in the beautiful Tyrolean Alps.

Take your yoga practice to the next level with our further education programmes and discover many important aspects of yoga.

Experience the transformative power of yoga in our four-week Sivananda Yoga Teachers’ Training Course. This unique course will enrich your life and the lives of those you teach.

A wide selection of further training programmes for yoga teachers fine-tune your teaching skills and expand your own practice.

Join us live online several times a day for yoga, pranayama and meditation from the comfort of your own home.


All activities of the Retreat House are focused on your personal experience and the next step in your development: we offer an orientation and personal introduction, spiritual get-togethers over tea, personal advice for your practice at home and a final feedback session.


We practice a "Yoga of Synthesis", which incorporates all aspects of yoga: from asanas, pranayama, relaxation and vegetarian diet to meditation, mantra chanting and philosophy – it is a proven recipe for the holistic development of body, mind and soul.


The Sivananda Yoga Centres have been teaching Yoga and Vedanta worldwide since 1959. Yoga practitioners from 50+ countries visit the Sivananda Yoga Retreat House every year. We teach in both English and German. For over 10 years now, the European Sivananda Yoga Centres have also been teaching yoga teacher training courses in India.
