Alpine wellness hotel Forsthofalm launches its MOUNTAIN LIFE yoga programme and fitness sessions for 2020.
The programme is available free of charge to all guests that book into the hotel. Three yoga classes take place every day alongside several fitness activities, including mountain hiking and Nordic walking.
Forsthfalm’s ethos centres on the enjoyment and celebration of wellness in nature, 365 days a year. The hotel is situated in a secluded location at 1050 metres in the middle of an alpine pasture.
Forsthofalm has its own water, energy and sustainable waste concept and is held together with 210,000 wooden dowels and is one of the most sustainable, ecological hotels in Austria. Built from moon wood, the rooms and suites are free of glue and metal and offer a supremely high quality of sleep due to the high percentage of stone pine. Stone pine ensures a long and intensive deep sleep phase and guests will awake feeling refreshed and energised.

Forsthofalm’s lifestyle concept fosters a spirit of communication and openness amongst its guests, promising a friendly environment to physically and emotionally connect and relax with others, within a shared holiday experience.
By day, classes are led by the hotel’s professional yoga instructors and fitness experts, who will guide guests through a dedicated series of yoga practices, meditation exercises relaxation techniques.
