Vegetarian & Vegan food for Your Retreats
Healthy, delicious vegetarian, organic meals will be provided using locally grown organic fruit and vegetables on any retreat if requested. Wholemeal foods will be used as well as foods low in saturated fat during your retreats. All meals are based on the principles of good nutrition, health and good taste.
● There can be no meat or fish on the your retreats if requested. All the food can be vegetarian or vegan. The yoga tradition encourages the vegetarian diet during the practice of meditation in order to increase the experience of peace.
If requested your meals at the retreat centre will contain beans, nuts, avocados, tofu, seeds and other vegetarian sources of protein, allowing you to build core, back and other muscle groups that have been developed from practising yoga postures by yogis for millennia.
