The popularity of Ayurvedic cooking comes as no surprise: It tastes delicious and is a healthy alternative to conventional food choices.

In this week-long course you will learn how to cook dishes for two and for larger groups of family and friends that will make everyone happy – the figure-conscious, the vegetarian connoisseurs, the hobby chefs as well as you, the host.

There will be one lecture and one cooking workshop daily.
Cooking together and sharing meals is an important and wonderful part of community living.

Mostly organic, regionally sourced ingredients will be used.

Full of minerals and secondary plant nutrients, vegetables are essential for good health. When prepared carefully in a low-calorie manner, they add variety to our diet.


Spices can be combined in so many different ways to create new taste sensations and make any meal delicious. The spices in the Ayurvedic kitchen apothecary can relieve and even help prevent many illnesses.

Fast, healthy food

Affordable, fast and simple recipes. Prepared lovingly and cooked in no time.

Do it yourself

Healthy sweets, yogurt and fresh, aromatic flat breads.

Healthy diet for your body type

A core teaching of Ayurveda is the principle of different body types. Understanding your body type is very helpful when making food and lifestyle choices. The instructors will determine each participantís body type and give individual tips.

The six tastes

Sweet, sour, salty, bitter, astringent and spicy are the six tastes that make an Ayurvedic meal complete. They ensure good digestion and optimal absorption, as well as satisfying the taste buds.

The rest of the day follows the yoga vacation schedule: You will have time to participate in one of the asana classes and in the morning and evening meditation.
