A yogi' s diet is built around eating to nourish the body and having a healthy relationship with food. We supply a yoga diet which consist of food grown naturally and harmoniously with nature and seasonable fresh vegetables and fruits. The philosophy stems from the idea that food is the creator of prana (life force), which sustains the physical body and mind.

The yogic food is all vegetarian because it simplifies the development of sattva, which is the concept of ahimsa (non-violence). Our food is prepared with love, peace, gratitude and positive intention, in order to increase and sustain prana.

If you have special dietary requirements it's a good idea to communicate it to the organiser when making your reservation.

The following meals are included:

  • Breakfast
