"You won’t regret - 6 days of bliss!"

Chris and Denise are absolute sweethearts. I’m really happy I decided to go for this retreat and happen to meet this 2 beautiful souls. Go with an open mind and the experience will blow your mind. There’s something about the whole experience that will make you feel like you are in a familiar and safe space with people from different phases (and age) of life and ofcourse the activities which would probably make you discover something new about you. I’ve learned so many interesting things/lessons so quickly, they would show the right tricks to get started and had an amazing story telling power to guide you, yet they were calm and humble - Thank you guys! The food was organic, delicious and surplus, so no one will ever go to bed hungry. I was joined by 2 other lovely ladies in this retreat and we all were synced from the very first time we met. The stay was very comfy. The transport was very well-connected without any delays. Denise and Chris took care of every small details, they arranged and coordinated with the other 2 ladies in the group to offer me a ride to/from Mayrhofen station. I am grateful that I had the chance to experience this and no wonder even after being home now and writing this review, all past week memories are fresh and I miss them. I will cherish them for rest of my life. Thank you!

p.s. To anyone who would like to take a quick break from their daily personal/professional life and connect to themselves, go for it you won’t regret. It was 6 days of bliss

"Mehr erholung geht nicht"

Liebe Gastgeber, die souverän und herzlich auf Ihre Gäste eingehen - schon mal die halbe Miete!

Der Aufenthalt in einem urigen ursprünglichen Holzhaus mit Kaminöfen, frische Luft, bequeme Betten - lange nicht mehr so erholsam geschlafen. Gemeinsames verbindendes Kochen, vegetarisch, lecker und regional typisch .

Noch nie habe ich in so kurzer Zeit soviel erlebt und neues kennen gelernt - Bouldern in der "Scheune" nebenan , Sauna mit dem Kaltwasserbecken im Schnee, sehr genial und nicht zu toppen der Hot Tube - wer hat sonst schon die Gelegenheit unter Sternen bei Pulverschnee zu baden ?

Die Schneeschuhwanderung war großartig - der Ausblick am Ziel mit 360 Grad Alpenpanorama das i-Tüpfelchen. Rodeln - perfekt - und selbst Abfahrtski wurde auf unseren Wunsch noch eingebaut.

In der Woche gab es einen prima Überblick über verschiedene Yoga-Arten - das Highlight am Ende der Woche eine Kostprobe Acro-Yoga, wir haben heute noch das Strahlen in den Augen - ja, wir können fliegen, Giggi. danke !

Spätestens nach der Thaimassagestunde vorm Kamin war dann auch die letzte Körperzelle tiefenentspannt.

Mehr kann man aus einer Woche nicht mitnehmen - einer der erlebnisreichsten und erholsamsten Urlaube meines Lebens .

Es ist von Vorteil, wenn man etwas Englisch versteht, Denise und Giggi unterstützen aber auch mit Übersetzung. Kein Grund sich dieses Event entgehen zu lassen.

Diese Woche hat mich glücklicher gemacht.

"Yoga and Snow - perfect fit"

The Idea to go on a yoga retreat and to do winter sports in Austria in the same week caught me immediately. And it was even better than expected: The great winter nature, with all the snow, the impressive Mountains and the great mixture of (mostly) ashtanga and yin yoga were just perfect. You do not need to be a winter sport professional, this is a retreat for everyone who loves being in nature and do yoga.

Many, many thanks to Denise and Christian who made this week unforgettable for me. They are not only great yoga teachers, hosts, cooks and organizers but also fantastic people, and I am very happy that I have met them!

"Perfect combination of active sport with yoga"

I liked pretty much everything about this retreat. It was a really nice combination of active sport with yoga and relaxation activities. Every morning we started our day with yoga, then had really great breakfast followed by hiking in the mountains and enjoying spa in the evenings. One day we did rafting, which I really enjoyed. The food was amazing. Thank you Chris and Denise for putting your heart into making this retreat friendly and special :)

"What an incredible 7 days"

Wow, after 7 days in the beautiful mountains of Ginzling, all I can say is that Chris and Denise have really got something special going on with their yoga retreats. From the very second I arrived, I was welcomed as if I were a long-time friend and was immediately immeshed in a group of wonderful, loving people. A couple of highlights:

1. Location was beautiful

2. Food was incredible, and they went out of their way on a few occasions to account for my vegan diet.

3. Activities were just as described, with complete flexibility (like a pro yogi) to sit out or do something extra when desired

4. The people - oh man - the people that Denise and Chris draw in are really what made the trip go from phenomenal to life-changing.

I'm sitting here at home two days after the trip ended and wishing I was back with the family I made there. It was truly a wonderful time.

"Best yoga retreat ever!!"

The surroundings are just amazing, the chalet is super cosy and every day we were doing a different outdoor activity.

Perfect holiday for those who want to escape the routine and get back to nature and meet like-minded people.

"Stunning and relaxing scenery "

I expected good yoga and relaxation - I definitely got that! What I didn't expect was the huge influence the amazing scenery had on the experience! Waking up to the sound of the river and view of the mountains were absolutely stunning. Loved the combination of yoga and outdoor activities. Thanks to Chris and Denise for being lovely and welcoming hosts.

"A really wonderful and special retreat not to be missed!"

Denise and Chris have created the perfect retreat - whether you are seeking thrill and adventure, peace and restoration, new friends and experiences, you are sure to find it on a globe seekers retreat. The schedule was full of exciting activities, with plenty of really unforgettable moments like the bonfire under the stars and meditating on a suspension bridge above a glacial lake, but was also flexible and adaptable to how you were feeling each day and what level of activity you were wanting. The location is truly stunning - every view looks like a postcard! The food must also be mentioned - I've never seen such a varied spread of delicious, organic vegetarian food for every meal, and I can't wait to take some recipes home to my friends. Accommodation was enchanting in a gorgeous, traditional mountain house complete with wood burning stove, a climbing/bouldering room, a beautiful sunlit yoga barn and a wellness area including a sauna, hot and cold tubs. Denise and Chris have a wonderful ability to unite everyone on the retreat across languages and cultures, so that I felt really connected to the wonderful people I met on the retreat.

"Abschalten im Zillertal"

Fernab von Großstadt und Lärm liegt das Yoga Camp, geleitet von Globeseekers, in Ginzlingen im Zillertal. Eine volle Woche Ausspannen mit verschiedenen Yogaarten, Thai-Massage, wunderbarem eigenen Saunabereich mit Alpenblick und vielen Möglichkeiten sich zu entfalten. Darunter Wandern, Klettern in der Natur, Acro-Yoga und Health-Coaching. Jedem der einen Moment innehalten möchte und sich seiner selbst bewusst werden, kann ich ein Retreat mit Denise und Chris von Globeseekers wärmstens empfehlen.

The globeseekers retreat in Austria was just an amazing experience fulfilled with so much love from Denise and Chris! The place in Austria is a charming hut with a nice view on the mountains and a great playground to try slacklining and bouldering, relax in the sauna, hot tub and all the little corners in the garden. But more important was meeting so many great people from all over the world and connect to like-minded who just love the nature, be active and heaving lovely and deep conversations. Denise and Chris organized everything very well and we did so many great things like amazing hikes, climbing and yoga classes where I could really improve my yoga practice and also try and learn new things. It was just an inspiring retreat where people connect to each other and I just went home with a lot of positive energy and motivation for new things to come in life. I am even sure now that I also want to do a yoga teaching! Thank you for everything and I will definitely come back to Austria or maybe to Sri Lanka!

Wow, where to start?! I was a little bit nervous coming into the retreat in Austria, because although I had heard from a friend that attended an earlier retreat that it was amazing, I was unsure I would have enough experience. However, from my very first meeting with Chris at the train station all my fears were dispelled. I felt so welcomed and accepted by everyone . The Diggl is the perfect location for the retreat – cosy & set in beautiful countryside. I couldn’t stop looking at the surrounding mountains and the view helped to inspire me throughout the week. I really loved the mix of yoga, outdoor activities (hiking, climbing, slack-lining), yoga philosophy and relaxation time (spa and sauna). These activities compliment and balance each other so well and enable you to get the most out of the retreat. Denise & Chris are such wonderful people and a great team. I learnt a lot from them and they went above and beyond to make my experience so special. The food on the retreat is excellent – tasty and healthy.

I met so many fantastic people during my retreat & although the my retreat was less than a month ago, I have travelled with and visited 3 of the people from the retreat already. It’s great to make connections and have fun with supportive, like-minded people.

Overall, the retreat exceeded my expectations & really inspired me to make some positive and exciting changes in my life. I cannot recommend Globeseekers enough – attending a retreat is one of the best gifts you can give yourself (or someonelse!). Thanks for everything Denise, Chris & all my wonderful ‘retreat-mates’.

A retreat in a small village in the Austrian Alps that combines Yoga with other outdoor activities? Me as a mountain lover I was sold immediately. I truly enjoyed the week with Denise, Chris and an amazing group of inspiring people. The positive energy and the relaxing mountain environment allowed me to disconnect from the daily stress, to reflect and to recharge. I especially liked the introduction to acro-yoga, I really have to try this again! And the yoga sessions in an old barn to the gentle murmur of a stream were the best that I’ve experienced so far.

Thank you so much Denise and Chris for this unique time that felt like a vacation with old friends!

Arriving to Mayrhofen I picked up some guys and just from the beginning we had a connection and interesting talks. Coming to the house Denise & Chris were already waiting – the whole ambience was familiar and cosy. It’s an amazing place! I think our group fitted well together – so on 1st day we had already deep and open group talks. Thank you for that guys! I really enjoyed preparing the food together – we ate healthy and delicious things every day! It felt more like being with friends than being on a retreat with people you don’t know. On our last evening we had an amazing barbecue with bonfire – the stars above us! Just magical!

Our days were full of activities – Yoga, some climbing, Thai massage, Acro yoga, talks, hikes,… Denise & Chris were aware of the groups needs the whole time and tried to complete all wishes. They even organized Paragliding for some of us which was incredible and a wonderful adventure.

I just can say THANK YOU for this fantastic week. In the end every corner of my body, every cell was filled with amazing experiences. I had so many inspiring talks, learned new things and went to extraordinary places. Thanks for sharing, Denise & Chris! I would recommend to stay at least 6 days – I could have stayed longer and Ginzling and its surroundings has to offer for months. Denise, Chris, I had a wonderful time! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
