Self Recognition

Nothing in nature is random. A thing appears random only through the incompleteness of our knowledge.
Taking inspiration from the ancient Indian sciences and texts, we have developed a fine fusion of yoga with a modern outlook. This helps students make valuable adjustments to their current lifestyle and also contribute positively to the society at large.

Our dishes are valued and highly recommended by previous students for its great taste on Tripadvisor along with excellent reviews of the high standard facilities and teaching. Hatha Yoga World believes the food is an important part of the course. When obtaining much new knowledge every day and practicing yoga asanas both morning and afternoon the body needs healthy and nourishing fuel for both mind and body. Yoga is much more than asanas, yoga is a lifestyle which makes us aware of what we eat and how it effects our thoughts and emotions. Ancient yogic texts recommend eating a sattvik diet. Sattvik food is light and have a high vibration which provides the body with energy. HYW serve sattvik meals to support the journey of purifying the whole being through yoga. Our talented and experienced kitchen chef cooks fresh food with passion and care. The one cooking the food should have a good energy so that the prana (life) in the food is positive. Our chef makes sure that the meals are ready at the same time every day. In Ayurveda, the sister science to yoga, it is recommended to eat at the same time and at certain times according to when your digestive fire is strongest. In our ordinary life, this simple act can be a challenge but at HYW you can enjoy the set meals time which naturally supports the body.
