Ayurvedic cookery classes and workshops

Eat well, eat happy

Ayurvedic cuisine is based on respect. Respect for what our digestive system has to deal with every day – processing everything we take in. And respect for the natural environment and the food itself. It is not an approach that restricts our enjoyment and imposes a ban on specific foods – but rather one that focuses on determining what is good for the constitution of the individual. Ayurvedic cuisine combines regional and seasonal foods with the beneficial effects of local herbs and spices. Whether you would like to try out Ayurvedic cuisine for the first time or deepen your knowledge on the subject, these cookery courses and workshops from Ayurveda by Giardino will teach you the principles of Ayurveda, as well as plenty of recipes. Easy to cook – even at home.

The ayurvedic Workshops take place a the hotel Atlantis by Giardino in Zurich:

Offers and packages

Ayurveda is the science of life. It is the world’s oldest form of traditional medicine – and combines a philosophy of life and empirical knowledge in one. Ayurveda is based on personality typologies. According to this approach, every individual has their own specific mixture of three different energies – vata, pitta and kapha – which shape our body and spirit. Regardless of a person’s dosha, the time of year and the changing seasons can influence their well-being. Our Ayurveda team develops seasonal specials that are tailored to meet the needs of people with a specific dosha at a certain time of year.
