The retreat centre itself is known primarily for its peaceful atmosphere and more importantly, its delicious cuisine! Cau Pal Cruset has an amazing on-site chef who will be keeping busy throughout the day preparing us incredible meals of many varieties. Inspired by his travels throughout the Mediterranean and Brazil, his philosophy on food is, "I believe that the most important ingredients to good food are: love, dedication, creativity, happiness, generosity and olive oil…”
During Becoming Balance, we will study nutrition in great detail. The classical yogic diet consists of foods that fall within the category of sattvic lactovegetarian. In line with this traditional yogic lifestyle, we encourage everyone to avoid fish and meat products for the duration this program. However, we believe that it is also important for one to have the freedom to personally curate their nutritional habits. Therefore meat and fish will be available upon request for an additional fee of 5 euro / day. Paid in cash on arrival.
If it were easy, everyone would do it!
We hold our Becoming Balance graduates to a high standard of expectation.
