Hof De Brulle is a restored farmhouse in Dutch Limburg. It has everything for a great summer weekend retreat: a serene yoga room, cozy bedrooms, a charming area, a purpose-built kitchen for cooking workshops, and a beautiful garden to walk, relax, and eat in.

Sampoorna Yoga and Cooking Lessons Netherlands Program

The cooking workshops are rooted in the yoga philosophy and accumulation of over 18 years of yoga practice and yogic cooking. You will use only organic, fresh, mostly vegan ingredients.

Don’t worry if you have been to Sampoorna Yoga Belgium’s previous cooking retreats or workshops, there is still a lot more to discover! Also, for people with allergies, this is a great opportunity to get inspired by new food items and combinations.

Cooking workshop 1 (Saturday): Indian-inspired

In the first workshop, you will prepare easy, balanced meals fragrant with exotic spices (turmeric, cumin, cardamom, coriander, etc.) on the basis of lentils and vegetables. You will prepare ghee together and make some sweet plant-based desserts and give attention to the breakfast of next day.

Cooking workshop 2 (Sunday): Mediterranean

In this session, you bring sunshine on the plate with dishes inspired by Italian, Greek, and Lebanese cuisine. You will also learn some new healthy desserts. Simple recipes based on pure ingredients and fresh herbs are sure to become your favorites at home.

Cooking workshop 3 (Monday): Quick meals

The last workshop helps you with inspiration for workday meals. You prepare balanced meals that are ready in 15 to 30 minutes, often based on an ingredient you can prep in advance and use for multiple meals during the week (lentils, quinoa).
