Clean Living Cooking and Lifestyle Course
21st - 23rd March 2017 | From £325pp
Clean living cooking and lifestyle course – Join us for a three day Clean Living course where you’ll master the basics of raw food, vegan cuisine, juicing, fasting and detoxification.
We decided to create this clean living cooking and lifestyle course because after running yoga retreat weekends in the UK for 10 years, we have had a lot of yoginis and yogis through our doors. We think the food is as important as the yoga on our retreats and the feedback is always the same:
“The food is amazing, how do you make this? How do you make that? I wish I could do this at home.”
We have created this course so that you will learn the art of healthy vegetarian eating so that you can integrate the types of meals that we feed you on our yoga retreats at home all by yourself. We have taken into consideration that you are busy people, so you may eat late or on the run. That you would like to be able to prepare a healthy (and tasty) breakfast that is creative so that you won’t get bored of it. Or you may like to produce a healthy, tasty and clean foods dinner party to wow your friends.
Not only is this course a cooking course, but a yoga and lifestyle course, so we will be having daily yoga and meditation workshops or classes. Learn how to integrate elements of our yoga retreats into your day to day life so that the balance of new eating habits, a daily yoga and/or mediation practice for the year ahead will help to focus you.
It is a practical course so please bring an apron and prepare to get your hands dirty!
Arrive at 12pm on the first day for an intro talk, followed by a half day, full day and final half day (finishing at 4pm) of workshops. In these workshops, you will experience cooking instruction on how to prepare certain foods. The course is a lifestyle course and so we have other workshops running also to help incorporate not only healthy eating, but a healthy routine.
Cooking Workshop 1:
Eating Healthy on the run
In this workshop we will discuss creating our very own healthy and nutritional home made fast food, the importance of correct nutrition for energy throughout the day and different individuals needs. Living in this fast paced urban world of today, it is hard for us to make/find the time to create healthy and balanced meals for ourselves.
We will be whipping up some inspiring fresh salads, dressings and dips.
Cooking Workshop 2:
Dinner parties the vegan way
Here we will look at how to create a lovely three course meal that will excite your guests but not have you slaving in the kitchen for an eternity.
We will create our very own three course meal and discuss different options and combinations involving different methods and recipes.
Cooking Workshop 3:
Breaking the morning fast
We will look at the importance of eating well in the morning, swift meals that are nutrient dense, pre-preparation, and what is right for an individual.
Breakfast is often a difficult one for us but it doesn’t have to be the case. Breaking your fast at the right time for your body and with the right foods is important. We will be sharing lots of ideas for this first meal of the day and how to fit it into your life.
We will create a few easy to make, protein rich creations to start your day off on the right foot.
Lifestyle Workshop 1:
How to create a daily practice: yoga and meditation
Some of you may feel confident in doing yoga at home by yourself, but for a lot of people this is a challenge. Some of us find it difficult to have the discipline or to find the time or to know what to do. Afraid of doing it “wrong”, putting the pressure on yourself to do it “right” with questions arising in the mind like: “Am I doing this wrong?”, “I am sure there is an order to yoga”, “What is the order.” We intend to dispel these myths and teach you how to feel confident developing your own home practice. You will feel liberated!
Lifestyle Workshop 2:
How to cope with stress in this modern world
An unruly emotion that we can all suffer from day to day. Learn some techniques on how to cope with stress to help make you feel more relaxed, more positive and more in control of your life.
