Overview

We are looking for a Yoga teacher to join our small team in the Austrian Alps. This would suit a yoga teacher who loves the outdoors and the mountains. MoaAlm offers summer and winter activity based holidays for small groups of guests. We generally have 12 guests. We are a small independent company that wants to share our enthusiasm for the mountain environment in a responsible way.

We are looking for somebody to start as soon as possible, ideally by mid July. Due to the start date, we can only consider applications from EU passport holders or applicants who already have a European work visa.

Are you a creative, energetic, personable, caring combination?
Beautiful as it looks, could you both live at a remote mountain location?
Would you be happy to share your space with a small team and a small group of house guests?

About our company WearActive

Our philosophy at MoaAlm is that being active in the outdoors helps people truly relax during their holiday and truly appreciate the location. We love nature, so we make sure that our business does not disturb the environment whenever possible. We use solar energy, we recycle our waste, we source our supplies locally, and we try to eat organically. We serve vegan meals to our guests.

About MoaAlm Mountain Retreat

MoaAlm is a recently renovated guesthouse at 1800m on the edge of the Hohe Tauern National Park in Austria. Our location is truly something special: the views from the house are stunning, many hiking routes start from the house and in winter you can ski down from the house to the ski lifts, the ‘garden’ is filled with Marmots, Gams (Chamois) and Deer. Please note that MoaAlm is a remote place! The village of Kals is 5km down the road and Lienz, the nearest city, is 30km from MoaAlm. In the winter, accessibility is limited, so usually once you have arrived back to MoaAlm after a day of adventure, you really do not want to leave again.

MoaAlm offers all-inclusive holidays to guests from around the world.  We can accommodate a maximum of 14 guests who typically stay with us for 1 week.  During their stay, guests have the opportunity to practice yoga, enjoy guided outdoor activities or perhaps relax in our beautiful wood-fired hot tub.  Our guests appreciate a personalised service and homely atmosphere which we cultivate through communal dining and sharing our time and interests of the great outdoors.

About the job:

The role is initially for the summer but we would love to extend the job into a summer and winter vocation. Our summer season finishes the start of October and winter season starts in December.

Yoga

We are looking for a passionate Yoga teacher. The ability to speak German is an advantage. You’ll need to be up for an adventure and enjoy teaching yoga for a small group 5 mornings a week, with the possibility of offering an afternoon class on certain weeks. Your role would be Yoga teacher plus helping the managers with day to day tasks. This will include assisting with the cleaning, baking some vegan cakes, and helping in the kitchen. Ideally you would also be comfortable contributing to our social media channels and writing blog posts.

The MoaAlm Team

You would both join a team of 3 other permanent employees at MoaAlm.  The other important role at MoaAlm is hosting; spending time with the guests and making guests feel part of the MoaAlm family.  Everyone at MoaAlm takes on more than one role with many tasks being shared between several people to keep life interesting!

There should be plenty of time each day for you to explore and enjoy the wonderful surroundings both at MoaAlm and in the stunning mountains around us!

The Work:

Annually: MoaAlm runs 18 week seasons in summer & winter with 8 weeks between each season of which 4 weeks are used to wrap up one season (admin & general maintenance) and prepare for the upcoming season. 4 weeks are taken as annual holidays between seasons (8 weeks holiday annually).

We all work hard but you should see it as a lifestyle – we are not “staff” in the  narrow sense of the word; it’s very much a “team” effort! We get to live in a  stunning location, ski down the ‘road’ to pick up the bread, meet really interesting people and eat great food.
