Food & Cooking
Our traditional retreats in Cornwall and abroad always centre around meal times.
A good nutritious diet provides the energy that we require to perform at our best and ensure we get the most from our day, helping us stay in shape mentally and physically.
We want to bring this all important aspect of our retreats to your home and give you the opportunity to make some of the lovely food that our chef prepares on our retreats.
During the cooking classes our chef, Nikita, will be taking you through Ayurvedic based recipes step by step and explaining how to prepare each delicious meal live and online.
Nikita will talk you through the ingredients and their nutritional values and help you enhance some long term skills in the kitchen to ensure you can maximise your potential through your diet.
Nikita will be demonstrating delicious traditional plant based Ayurvedic dishes that will leave you inspired and with knowledge and insight into about Ayurveda that you can take away with you!
