Ayurveda in South Tyrol

The knowledge of a long, healthy life

The Indian health principle of Ayurveda is also enjoying increasing popularity here with us in the Alps. The doctrine of a “long and healthy life” (“Ayurveda” translated from Sanskrit) is a complex system of nutrition, massage therapies and exercise, which we use at the Wellnesshotel Preidlhof to the highest level.

Our Ayurveda therapist Nisha Don Pradeep comes from Sri Lanka, the stronghold of Ayurveda, bringing the knowledge and intuition from the original tradition with him to South Tyrol. Nisha studied and worked at the renowned Walauwa Institute in Bentota, Sri Lanka before he came to the Preidlhof.

He considers Ayurveda in South Tyrol to be the harmonisation of traditional healing knowledge with the needs of modern humanity. Nisha uses high-quality, ultra-pure oils from Sri Lanka for all treatments and adapts the applications to your own type of physique – you will also receive individually-tailored nutritional tips to take home with you as part of your holistic Ayurveda experience here with us at the Preidlhof.
