La Casa de Loto offers delicious and healing Ayurvedic inspired vegetarian meals. Our thoughtfully assembled dishes feature locally grown foods and sustainably sourced ingredients prepared with lots of love. We craft our meals carefully to balance the body doshas (elemental constitutions) which promote health and well-being. We also offer the practice of mindfully eating so the food nourishes not only our bodies but also our minds and spirits. To facilitate this, some of our meals may be eaten in Noble Silence.
WHAT IS AYURVEDA?
Ayurveda means “The Science of Life” in Sanskrit. It originated in India more than 5,000 years ago and stems from the same ancient Vedic culture as Yoga. Ayurveda is more than simply a diet, it is a way of life that places great emphasis on creating balance in one’s life through mindfulness, diet, lifestyle and medicinal herbs. Each person has a unique blueprint or energy pattern which is a combination of one’s individual combination of physical, mental and emotional characteristics which one is born with. When one’s constitution is in balance then we experience “health”. When one’s constitution is imbalanced or disordered, then we experience “dis-ease”. These imbalances can be caused by external or internal causes. Ayurveda helps us to understand our unique energy blueprint and how to bring balance and harmony into our lives.
