Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine
In one of the most stunning locations of the Alps – on the high plateau of the Thiersee Valley at 900m altitude – a place of unique harmony and wellbeing awaits. Nestled within this natural paradise, the Ayurveda Resort Sonnhof is dedicated to the philosophy of Ayurveda, integrating it gently and carefully with European culture. Here, at the heart of the Tyrolean Alps, guests experience the power of the holistic Ayurvedic philosophy – without the need for long haul travel to the Indian subcontinent, the birthplace of Ayurveda. Our Ayurveda specialists from India, Gaurav Sharma and Chef de Cuisine Balvinder Walia, work closely with Dr (med) Alaettin Sinop (conventional GP & specialist in naturopathic medicine), ensuring that you are looked after with competence and professionalism, whilst promoting a deeper understanding between the cultures of east and west.
The Ayurveda Resort Sonnhof in Austria offers a comprehensive programme including short AyurDetox breaks, intensive detoxification programmes, rejuvenation weeks and Rasayana treatments. However, the queen of Ayurvedic treatments is Panchakarma: a two-part therapy plan including preparation as well as central treatment. A range of skills and expertise also characterise the Yoga programmes of the Ayurveda Resort. Our guests come to understand that this holistic philosophy is so much more than an effective body workout. Like Ayurveda, Yoga deals with the psyche as well as the body.
The Ayurveda Resort Sonnhof in Tyrol was reopened after renovations and extension works in June 2012. Our design concept is based entirely on the motto ‘Tyrol meets India’. Local timber, some of which recycled and sourced from ancient hay barns, and high quality materials create a harmonious synergy with vibrant Indian colour schemes. Exquisite handcrafted sculptures of Buddha and elements of creative decor define the ambience. The influence of the subcontinent is clearly noticeable in our new suites as well as the refurbished accommodation. The entire resort was designed on the basis of Vastu Shastra to enable positive energy to flow freely.
'I feel good' is our maxim – it symbolises everything we do!
