The benefits of Yoga
Yoga means the wonderful union of mind, body and soul along with communion to Cosmic Consciousness. It aids in bringing peace to the mind, a blissful, happy state and internal harmony. This is an age-old Indian practice and hosts many benefits such as healing the body through Yoga postures (Yogasanas), higher awareness and clarity of the mind. These timeless traditions from the scriptures of India are designed to bring benefits for life. For those spiritually minded guests we offer a Yoga tour or class combined with Yoga foods.
Yoga food- Food for the soul
Yoga is a way of life rather than some postures. A great combination of art and science, Yoga shows you the way to a balanced life, with its blend of asanas and Yoga foods. Yoga food is essentially vegetarian food which is fresh, wholesome, nutritious and lightly spiced, where the natural benefits of the ingredients involved are preserved to a large extent. Instead on dividing the components of food into proteins, carbohydrates and fats, Yoga classifies food based on the life force or Prana it gives the body. These are called SATTVIC foods and they aid in purifying the body and mind
For our guests we offer a total package including Yoga basics and Yoga foods in a peaceful setting.
