20 girls super stoked on snowboarding & curious about yoga, gathering in a splendid hotel at the foot of the mountain I learned my first turns on a snowboard on – there’s not much that could get me much happier than at…

It’s been hard enough all my life to find girls that like to snowboard as much as I do, that fit my riding level and that I get along with after the slopes as well. Most of the times they’re either too hard-core, too soft, too girly or not girly enough, or just not interested in the same things I am – I may be a bit picky, I am aware of that…

But so imagine my delight at being surrounded by a bunch of girls who all made the effort to get themselves down to Kaprun in the Salzburger Land in Austria weeks before any resemblance of winter, to share a weekend full of their passion at the elooa Girls Balance Camp, when even the glacier was still lacking snow and everyone else slowly but surely got ready for Xmas madness. And asking me questions about the yoga and my designated „Après Ski Yoga“ session the next day…

And while I was already brimming with anticipation weeks beforehand, fine tuning my sequence and updating my playlist, the whole weekend turned out even better than expected.

For the first time ever, elooa had organized a special retreat just for girls, inviting them to find and get back the „Balance“ in their busy lives with a weekend full of action, passion, calm and wellness. Including park sessions with seasoned female pros Ana Rumiha, Mary Luggen and Sarka Pancochova, professional freestyle training from experienced coaches to get their pulses going, push their limits and ensure exciting memories (captured on film and in photos, of course) and a little Warm Up Yoga Session in full gear on the mountain (ever tried standing on one leg in your snowboard boots??), balanced out by the extensive spa area of the active by Leitner’s style hotel and my nourishing Après Ski Yoga class in the glass-walled rooftop fitness space.

A very successful start to the winter season! And only the beginning of more yoga-snowboard-goodness coming soon – check back for more camps, weekends and events coming up in 2016…
