    Food is the lush part of the weekend. Colours, spices, tastes and delicious food will be served. You will learn the principles of the Ayurvedic system and how to use these in your daily life. Ayurveda is an ancient holistic approach where yoga, nutrition and massages are combined to give health and wellbeing.
