Yoga & Raw Food Immersion


2–9 February, 2019

Prices from: $1500 USD

Our talented raw food chef and creator of many of our delicious a la carte dishes from our life food cafe menu, Boris Lauser from Berlin (Germany), is usually back on the island only once a year and during this time offers this very special combination retreat for our guests.
Raw Food and yoga create a powerful symbiosis since they both affect your spiritual energy field and can only in one week bring your body and mind to high states of consciousness.
A plant based raw food diet provides your body with more nutrients and less empty calories than a conventional cooked diet, while keeping your body light and flexible to practice yoga and yet supply it with all the nutrition it needs. Most people feel amazing effects in their body after only one week of experiencing this empowering combination of high performance nutrition and daily physical and spiritual practice. On top of this, Boris is a culinary expert and a gourmet, so his raw food creations are way beyond your regular fare and will leave you with no further cravings both taste wise as well as visually.

Boris in fact is one of Europe’s top raw chefs, running a raw food school and a vegan & nutrition chef training in Germany, has published books and has been consulting restaurants and hotels for many years in the art of fine raw food cuisine.
