At Anahata, you will get the chance to experience a yogic diet, a vegetarian diet that is based on principles of simplicity, and that supports your being in the process of positive transformation. A proper diet that is pure, simple, and as natural as possible is essential for progress in yoga. If one eats pure food, then the system is revitalized again and again.
All meals provided are vegetarian - simple, nutritious, and satisfying. Much of Anahata's organic food is sourced from local growers or picked fresh from their garden, which is developed along permaculture design principles. They have a closed kitchen policy and no personal cooking is permitted. However, the option of cooking alongside one of the retreat residents and learning about sattwic food preparation and prasad is a possibility during your stay if you choose.
