NO JET LAG

Changing time zones is a sure-fire way to unbalance our natural bio-rhythms! In order to bring about positive changes to our physical system we need rest and a balanced system. By forcing the body to adapt to the change in time zones we become unbalanced, which makes it harder to encourage positive changes.

EUROPEAN HERBAL OILS

Ayurveda encourages, whenever possible, the use of plants that grow in the same soil in which we live. Therefore, the resort makes their own high quality herbal oils from local plants and herbs for use at the Sonnhof. All oils are made according to Ayurvedic principles and are energised with healing mantras.

YOGA AND MEDITATION

Mental and spiritual strain and overload are increasingly common side effects of the western lifestyle. Although it is important to strengthen muscles, flexibility and endurance, the psychological side of Yoga should not be ignored. The Sonnhof’s Mind Detox Coaching® helps you develop your potential through meditation, mental exercises, Yoga, breathwork and energy exercises – and thus make your life and work happier and more successful.

EUROPEAN AYURVEDIC CUISINE

European Ayurvedic cuisine is a vital component of European Ayurveda®. A requirement of Ayurvedic nutrition is that staple foods are locally grown. Our bodies are familiar with the foods and herbs grown in Europe – the active ingredients suit European living conditions. To ensure that Ayurvedic nutrition is gently and easily processed by our European bodies, European Ayurveda® has developed its own recipes using local foods and herbs whose effects correspond with the Ayurvedic originals.

FARM TO TABLE

In 2016 the resort acquired the Lindhof farm, allowing them to embark into the world of agriculture in the spirit of sustainability and European Ayurveda®. This is how they combine their Tyrolean roots with the Vedic, and harmonise Tyrolean traditions with those of the Indian subcontinent. Both are linked by a credo: the preservation, development and teachings of the ‘science of life’. So guests enjoy vegetables, fruit and honey fresh from the Lindhof, which are then prepared using the wholesome recipes of European Ayurvedic cuisine.

INFORMATION AND EDUCATION

Information and education are important for building trust, letting go and integrating a healthy lifestyle. At Ayurveda Resort Sonnhof a lot of time is spent educating guests during their treatment programme. Key questions are answered to enable the customer to let go, develop trust and above all focus on themselves. Because only in a relaxed state are changes or healing possible.

A SHORT JOURNEY HOME

You know the feeling… two weeks of nutritious food and utter relaxation – and then it’s time for the trek home. The journey often involves long-haul flights and car drives and it can be very difficult to get hold of food that’s healthy, fresh and preservative-free.

SUSTAINABLE WELLBEING

Time pressure, mental toxins and an unhealthy diet lead to body imbalances, therefore it is important to analyse what lifestyle changes are realistic for guests’ return to everyday life. Family, hobbies, work and eating habits play an important part. Together with the Ayurveda experts, guests discuss unhealthy habits, learn why they are unhealthy and what the long-term effects are, and develop an at home strategy. When guests are at home they can contact the AyurvedaCentre and Dr Sharma at any time – a service you are unlikely to receive from India!
