Yogic Food

Meals of a yogic diet have been served at the Gurukul Yogashala in Rishikesh. Getting started with yoga is easier with the help of our gluten-free, yogic diet. The meal, together with the detox tea and juices, contains a good balance of nutrients such as vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, calcium, and other minerals. We believe that medication loses its efficacy when consumed alongside unhealthy eating. Medication is unnecessary when the diet is healthy. What we eat has a significant impact on our ability to meditate and practice yoga.
