Preidlhof in the Italian South Tyrol has introduced a series of transformational wellness programmes and retreats under the direction of award-winning spa director and transformational wellness coach, Patrizia Bortolin. Following months of research, she has expanded the wellness concept she designed for Preidlhof: ‘The Preidlhof Way’ with her hallmark  ‘Glowing Flow Lifestyle’ philosophy integrating medicine, holistic experiences and spiritual well-being.

The concept is based on the latest neuroscience research which embraces two types of wellbeing: hedonic and eudaimonic. Aiming to bring balance between the two, eudaimonic wellbeing is said to be achieved when one confronts one’s past, with healing while striving to reach a higher purpose with the community. In eudaimonic wellbeing, learning and introspection are valued, and health care and prevention are addressed. Hedonic wellbeing is said to be experienced in joy, in beauty and feelings of release and unbridled self expression.

“The aim is to help our guests to attain true well-being through a hedonistic approach to the present and a more eudaimonic approach to the past and future.”

Patrizia Bortolin

Spa director, spa designer and transformational wellness coach, Preidlhof

Each Retreat is highly personalised, the guest experience tailored according to the goals of the individual guest, their stage in life and what he or she is ready to integrate.  Bortolin guides each guest in their emotional, physical and spiritual journey, assisted by Preidlhof’s team of healers.

Retreat guests can also enjoy a programme of mindfulness classes, dance therapy, barefoot meditation, yoga nidra, laughter yoga, Dao Yin yoga, cosmetic rejuvenation, forest bathing, therapy rituals, purification with alpine herbs and colour therapy.
