yoga & cooking retreat

Next yoga & cooking retreat: May 18-21, 2018 (long weekend!)!

Food is the most important of all things for the body.
Therefore it is the best medicine
for all the body’s ailments.
They who look upon food
As the Lord’s gift
Shall never lack life’s physical comforts.
- Upanishads

About the venue

Hof De Brulle – a restored farmhouse in Dutch Limburg – has everything for a great summer weekend retreat: a serene yoga room, cozy bedrooms, a charming area, a purpose-built kitchen for cooking workshops, and a beautiful garden to walk, relax and eat in.

The cooking workshops are rooted in the yoga philosophy and a cumulation of over 18 years of yoga practice and yogic cooking. We use only organic, fresh, mostly vegan ingredients.

The cooking workshops are designed to be educational, delicious and fun. Everyone works hands-on, and we will enjoy the results together.

Don’t worry if you have been to our previous cooking retreats or workshops,  we  are sure that there is a lot more to discover! Also for people with allergies, this is a great opportunity to get inspired by new food items and combinations!

Cooking Workshop 1 (Saturday): Indian-Inspired

In the first workshop we prepare easy, balanced meals fragrant with exotic spices (turmeric, cumin, cardamom, coriander, …) on the basis of lentils and vegetables. We prepare ghee together and we also make some sweet plant-based desserts and give attention to the breakfast of next day.

Cooking Workshop 2 (Sunday): Mediterranean

In this session we bring sunshine on the plate with dishes inspired by Italian, Greek and Lebanese cuisine. We will also learn some new healthy desserts. Simple recipes based on pure ingredients and fresh herbs are sure to become your favorites at home.

Cooking Workshop 3 (Monday): Quick Meals

The last workshop helps you with inspiration for workday meals. We prepare balanced meals that are ready in 15-30 minutes, often based on an ingredient you can prep in advance and use for multiple meals during the week (lentils, quinoa).
