WINKLERS’ BALANCE MAN AND NATURE THROUGH THE SEASONS The Winklers’ Balance programme is inspired by the elements and the seasons – spring, summer, autumn, and winter. It is devised to help us blossom like bushes in spring, grow like fruits in the summer time, learn to let go like autumn leaves, and rest like shrubs in winter. WINKLERS’ INSIDER TIP SPECIAL A healthy mind in a healthy body. Meridian stretching, Pilates and physiotherapeutic treatments (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, tapes, lymphatic drainage with the Asdonk method) for better balance and health! Check our “Recharge” deal with 6 yoga or Qigong lessons a week, from 4 November to 1 December 2018. See page 79 for all details!

PREMIUM SPA WINKLERS’ INSIDER TIP The cycle of the seasons is a lifecycle: spring, summer, autumn and winter correspond to childhood/youth, adulthood, mature age, and elderliness respectively. Based on this principle, the Winklerhotels offer an extraordinary wellness and vitality programme, including everything from traditional rituals to quality natural products. Make time for your body and mind!
