Pilates & Yoga Retreat

15th - 17th of October 2021

We’d like to offer you the opportunity to reconnect with yourself. Come and join us for three enchanting days of Pilates and yoga combined with wellness activities and delicious, healthy meals.

The breathtaking hotel Gerl is located in the middle of the upper austrian prealps, yet it is only a stone’s throw from Salzburg’s historic old town. It is far enough away from Munich to provide a complete change of scenery, but close enough to be easily reached by car or by train. The hotel is a family-run business and has lots of personality. Every room is a little design discovery on its own. With its indoor & outdoor pools, its bio sauna and its personalized wellness programmes, it is truly an oasis for relaxation seekers.

We’ll be there to help you put the stress of everyday life aside to ground yourself and bring balance to your body and mind. You’ll be provided with time for yourself to rest, reflect, and recharge. You'll come back home feeling refreshed and energetic!

We can't wait to share this special time with you ♥
Your Marina, Tina & Katharina

Info on the current situation

If traveling or doing sports together is not allowed, you can rebook your appointment free of charge. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Three days full of Pilates, Yoga & Wellness

Start the day with a balanced fresh breakfast and spend the rest of the day enjoying some of our daily activities, a varied mix of Pilates, yoga and guided meditation sessions. The classes are designed to be energetic or relaxing, depending on your wishes and on the time of day.
Do whatever you feel like doing.
Are you stressed, tense or worried? Our short guided meditation session will help you let go of those wandering thoughts and anxieties and focus on the present.
If you don’t feel like engaging in contemplation, you can read a good book, relax in the sauna, treat yourself to a massage, go for a hike through the picturesque landscape around Wals or visit Salzburg's Hohensalzburg Castle.

You’ll be looking forward to having dinner: the hotel offers an exquisite three course menu catering for all palates, the meat eater as well as the vegetarian and the vegan. All meals are made from fresh, in-season and local ingredients.

Everything is taken care of so that you can really switch off for once - 3 whole days without stress, without constraint, full of relaxation and recreation.

We are incredibly excited to have you in the hotel Gerl’s magic setting, a place to relax and rest.

Spa & Massages

Indoor and outdoor pools
An indoor pool at a hotel is a reason in itself to book a stay. Swim a few lengths in the morning before breakfast in the hotel’s magnificent heated indoor pool. How about a refreshing dive in the outdoor pool? If you’re swimming with your head out of the water, you’ll be able to enjoy the view of the surrounding mountain en. If you just feel like chilling out, lie back in an elegant sunbathing lounger or take a nap in one of the hammocks located above the heated roof-top outdoor pool. Let your gaze wander into the distance and let your thoughts and dreams run free.

Finnish sauna
Relaxing in the hot, woodsy-scented Finnish sauna before resting in a swing chair with a good book - you might as well fall asleep :)

Thai Yoga Massage with Tina
Thai massage is the art of giving from two hands and the heart.
It is a meditation in movement, a healing dance for both the giver and the receiver.
Deep stretches inspired by asanas are rhythmically applied along with pressure on the Sen lines of the body. Tensions are released and the free flow of energy resumes in your body. This is an experience you won’t want to miss!
There are only 4 time slots available, please book now if you are interested! (75 Min. 75,00€)

Please note that massages must be booked in advance.
We will coordinate your desired time slots with you prior to your arrival.

Naturally Urban Hotel Gerl

Familiar, traditional and absolutely stylish
We have rarely experienced such warm, genuine service in any hotel, although we’re well-travelled people. What makes the hotel’s atmosphere unique? Probably the fact that it has been passed down within the Gerl family for generations, ensuring their guests feel at home.


only a 1.5 hour drive from Munich


The Hotel Gerl is located 140 km from Munich’s city center: it is a 1.5 hour drive by car. Let us know if you’re interested in sharing a ride with another participant. We’ll be happy to connect people seeking respectively passengers and drivers!
