If you wish to reserve a single room, or a double room together with a partner, please specify it in your application form. Bed sheets (duvet, pillow and sheets) and towels can also be hired, or you are welcome to bring your own.
We serve vegetarian food, based on organically grown vegetables, most of it from our own fields.
For ten days after the intestinal cleansing, we follow a diet without milk, sugar, spices, raw vegetables and fruit.
The food is healthy and nutritious, selected to make up a balanced diet.
Throughout the course we avoid stimulants, such as coffee, chocolate, black tea and alcohol. If you drink coffee or tea daily, then we recommend that you leave these out of your diet in the days prior to your course, so that you avoid withdrawal symptoms at the beginning of the course.
You don’t have to be a vegetarian to get something out of yoga, but it creates an optimal state and the diet is therefore a condition of the course.
In addition to other benefits, scientists have found that this diet considerably helps to decrease the content of harmful cholesterol in the blood.
