Our chef was asked over and over again during the retreats if he would be willing to show participants how they can prepare themselves some of the delicious and nutritious healthy foods that he is making. Therefore we have decided to include cooking classes into this retreat.
You will learn how to make few simple foods from the scratch such as healthy organic flatbreads, gluten-free bread, healthy nutritious raw breakfast, raw cake, healthy spreads, fermented foods, and healthy ice creams.
Afterwards, you will be able to make all of this foods at home, so that you can continue the healthy eating after you return home.
You will learn about the nutritional value of foods, and how to implement the use of herbs in your cooking, so that it can help you to support your wellbeing and health long after you have returned home.

The retreat will take place in an old stone village right above the lakes and the national park. Each participant will have its own beautiful apartment or its own cottage house – all the accommodation is in the stone houses which were charmingly restored and designed to be very comfortable.
They all have heating, air-conditioning, as well as free Wi-Fi. All the accommodation is placed 10 to 50 meters away from the main house where yoga, meals, and cooking workshops will take the place.
