With Martine van Beusekom

This Ayurvedic Cooking workshop is a beautiful way to get familiar with the basics of Ayurvedic cooking and nutrition. In this 3-day workshop, you will learn about nutrition and its benefits through an Ayurvedic lens, by experiencing this both through theory and practice in a hands-on cooking day.

Program Outline

This powerful program is designed to introduce you to the principles of Ayurvedic nutrition, giving practical tips on how to apply this in daily life creating peace and harmony in the body and mind.

During this 3-day workshop, we will dive into the basic principles of Ayurvedic nutrition and how to prepare a typical Ayurvedic meal. Ayurvedic cooking and eating is about how to digest a meal in an optimal way. You will learn about the three doshas (Vata, Pitta and Kapha) and their relation with your constitution. We will play with quality pairs - such as cold-warm, oily-dry, heavy-light - in relation to ourselves, environment and foods.

In Ayurveda, healthy food is considered a medicine and it pleases the senses as well. We will explore the six different tastes and their effects, while at the same time looking into the importance of our digestive fire or ‘agni’.


In this workshop, we will bring theory into practice during a cooking day in a beautiful cooking studio "De Laurier" in Amsterdam.
