At Upaya Yoga School, we believe in the importance of nourishing our bodies with wholesome and nutritious food that supports our yoga practice and overall well-being. Our culinary philosophy is rooted in the concept of Saatvik food, which aligns with the principles of yoga and Ayurveda. Here’s what you can expect from our Saatvik food offerings:

Fresh and Organic Ingredients:

We prioritize using fresh, locally sourced, and organic ingredients in our meals. We believe that food in its natural state, free from chemicals and pesticides, offers the highest nutritional value. Our kitchen team carefully selects seasonal fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes to create delicious and nourishing meals.

Vegetarian and Vegan Options:

Our Saatvik food is predominantly vegetarian, with a wide variety of plant-based options available. We believe that a vegetarian diet promotes compassion, lightness, and purity, which are essential principles in yoga. We also cater to vegan dietary preferences, ensuring that all students can enjoy wholesome meals that align with their values and dietary needs.

Balanced and Sattvic Meals:

Saatvik food is known for its purity, simplicity, and lightness. It is believed to promote clarity of mind, spiritual growth, and harmony within the body. Our meals are carefully designed to include a balance of all six tastes—sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent, and astringent—creating a harmonious blend of flavors. We also emphasize the use of gentle spices and herbs that enhance digestion and promote overall well-being.

Mindful Cooking and Preparation:

Our kitchen team practices mindfulness and love while preparing each meal. They infuse the food with positive energy and intention, considering it a sacred act of nourishing the body and soul. We believe that the energy and intention behind the food we consume have a profound impact on our well-being, and therefore, we prioritize creating meals with love and mindfulness.

Ayurvedic Principles:

We draw inspiration from Ayurvedic principles in our food preparations. Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga, emphasizes the balance of doshas (energetic forces) within the body for optimal health. Our meals are created to support the balance of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha doshas, ensuring that they are suitable for all body types and promote overall harmony and well-being.

Dining Experience

At Upaya Yoga School, we strive to create a pleasant and nurturing dining experience. Our dining spaces are designed to foster community and connection, allowing you to share meals with fellow students and teachers. We believe that enjoying meals together creates a sense of unity and enhances the overall yoga experience.


We understand that each individual has unique dietary needs and preferences. If you have any specific dietary requirements or allergies, we are committed to accommodating them to the best of our ability. We encourage you to inform us in advance, so we can ensure that your dietary needs are met during your stay with us.


At Upaya Yoga School, we are dedicated to providing not only exceptional yoga instruction but also nourishing and wholesome Saatvik food. We invite you to join us on this holistic journey of yoga, mindfulness, and nourishment for your body, mind, and spirit.
