Yogic Meals at YogConnection Yogshala

Atharv Yogshala offers three times a day freshly cooked meals, herbal tea and filtered drinking water. Atharv Yogshala Sattvic diet primarily consumes nutritious foods, including fresh produce and nuts, which is why this diet may lead to a number of health benefits. However, it’s quite restrictive, and many healthy foods are off-limits.

Living a healthy lifestyle is the expectation of everyone but very few obey the rule of living a healthy life. Eating Satvic food will give you good health, good nutrition and improves digestion. Sattvic food is very natural since it includes all fresh and medicinal ingredients. The diet is so natural that you don’t feel heavy or lethargic after eating and gives a peaceful feeling so here in Atharv Yogshala yoga practitioners slowly start incorporating Satvic food in theirs diet and learn to cook varieties of tasty dishes because this is going to show wonderful results in your body starting from good health, good energy boost and positive state of mind.
