Cook, Taste, Heal is about the food of life - the things that nourish your body, mind and life force.
Based upon the principles of Yoga and Ayurveda, 'the knowledge of life', Shantiji will tell you about your body type: wind, fire or earth, known as Vata, Pitta, Kapha and combinations; nourishing yourself with what's best for your body, and also meals you can prepare for all body types.
After picking herbs from the garden, gathering the eggs from the free range chickens, you'll congregate around food in the kitchen, chopping veggies, baking bread or making Indian breads, rotis for lunch, and Nirvana chai, or watch and taste. Learn to cook up a storm and when you go home you should be able to cook a feast suitable for the whole family.
Or just read a book, relax on the banana lounge or hammock while you take time out of your busy, pressured life to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of Nirvana Wellness Retreat.
