Food & Kitchen
We promote a healthy diet at Kranti Yoga School and our food is freshly prepared for you daily. We consider proper nutrition to be a very important part of your time with us. We want to ensure that you are giving your body what it needs to support your daily yoga practice, health and wellbeing. We have an onsite organic Indian kitchen with wonderful cooks, who continue to delight us with their specialities.
Our courses include all food: breakfast, lunch, dinner and refreshments throughout the day. All our meals are served as a buffet with many options for you to choose from. Our dining area is in Sattva, the hub of the village. Enjoy mealtimes here with your peers or maybe dine on your terrace should you want a little quiet time.
Our kitchen is at your service and ready to accommodate all your dietary requirements, whatever they may be. We are strictly vegetarian and are more than willing to cater for vegans, lactose intolerant, gluten free and more. Our kitchen is your kitchen. If there is something you need or crave, we will always try to help. If you miss a meal, our cooks will always rustle something up for you. There is never a need to be hungry.
All the food is sourced locally and so the menu will consist of seasonal fruit and vegetables. Local produce is organically grown and bought on a daily basis. We also buy groceries from nearby stores in order to support the local economy.
A typical daily menu:
Curd & Honey
Carrot and Coriander Soup
Beansprout Salad with Toasted Paneer
Dhal (Lentil Curry)
Pea and Mushroom Masala
Goan Vegetable Curry
Pasta and Tomato & Basil Sauce
Date and Chocolate Cake
At the end of the day, we meet in Moksha for sunset. After a full day of yoga, enjoy the sun setting over the Arabian Sea. This is a favourite time for both students and teachers. It is a blissful time to appreciate where you are, who you are with and what you have achieved. Chai, fresh fruit juice and a range of teas are served throughout the day. We have a coffee machine for you to make your own fresh coffee and Ayurvedic teas to help balance your dosha. Fresh fruit and nuts are always available should you need some sustenance between mealtimes.
Our food is prepared with ghee as it is believed to keep the body well maintained. Ghee not only helps digestion, it helps burn off some of the less desirable fat in our bodies. However, for some of you, you may prefer a lighter alternative. We serve salads and lighter food. We also sometimes serve pasta with tomato sauce as it provides a welcome alternative to traditional Indian food. We aim to please and make sure that all tastes are catered for. Ultimately, we always encourage our guests to eat healthily and hope that we provide enough information for you to make educated food choices. Your own self-discipline is crucial to eating healthily.
At weekends, you will have time to try the local cuisine. We have a prime location on Patnem Beach where you will find a range of restaurants serving a host of tasty and healthy choices. You can choose from traditional Indian dishes or pick from a rich international menu that is widely available in most restaurants. The food in Patnem and neighbouring Palolem is some of the finest cuisine on offer in Goa. Patnem is renowned for a high standard of hygiene. You are also welcome to stay within The Yoga Village and meals will be prepared for you on on request.
Whether you stick to your own food regime or eat locally, one thing is certain, you will never be hungry at Kranti Yoga School. Bon Appetit!!!
