Any intense yogic practice requires a balanced and rich nutrition. It is crucial to adopt the correct diet during the teacher training course and so to nourish body and mind at the best.
We offer a healthy and delicious vegan diet. Our food does not contain any meat, eggs or diary with the exception of chai (the traditional Indian milk tea) and curd in the morning. We also serve seasonal finger millet bread (ragi bread), brown rice, cereals and others aliments which are suitable for a gluten free nutrition.
All the meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner, are prepared daily in our School and are served as a buffet. We arrange a variegated menu to offer always a choice and optimal supply of all necessary nutrients (proteins, carbs, fibres).
We buy products available in the local market to guarantee the genuine flavour and the freshness of our ingredients.
The dishes are cooked and combined together according to the Ayurveda principles.
In other words, the use of the ingredients is selected in accordance to the season and the weather condition. So, the organism can adjust easily to the new environment, the digestive system is not overloaded, the mind remains alert and the body is light. The use of the spices is drastically reduced and dosed to maintain a cool mind and not to impede meditation.
Especial care is also given to the water.
