CUISINE

The Sagrada Kitchen is organic, vegetarian (90% vegan) and mainly gluten free. We spend a lot of time menu planning for each retreat and shopping at our local farmers markets and health food stores to supplement the fresh produce form our organic garden. Our cuisine is rustic yet gourmet and is served family style. Our meals are prepared fresh each day with great attention to flavor and quality.

Our garden is more and more productive and menus are inspired by the best of what we produce.

Each morning we serve strong organic coffee, our own free range organic eggs with sprouted bread and jelly, sliced tomatoes, yogurt and our famous homemade granola. We send our guests home stimulated and inspired to cook great meals at home for themselves, their family and friends. We serve our favorite modest local wines throughout the retreat. Please bring any wines that you would like to share with the group and add them to the mix. Every afternoon Eva blends a fresh tea with organic herbs to create a fresh and vibrant herbal beverage. Sagrada cuisine has been a yogi's epicurean delight for over a decade now and we promise meal times at Sagrada will be nourishing and memorable.

INSTRUCTOR BIOS

Ellen Reesor

KIND FOUNDER

Ellen first found yoga at the age of 14 and quickly fell in love with the way it made her feel. After countless hours of practice she went on to complete a 200-hour YTT in Hatha yoga and a 500 hour Moksha Yoga teacher training as well as a 100 hour Moksha Yoga Flow training. Ellen is currently enrolled in a 10 month Embodied Arts and movement Teacher Training and Mentorship Program through Spirit Loft Movement and Yoga Centre downtown.

Though Ellen was very appreciative of her past experience in yoga, she believed there was a major component missing in the yoga industry: a connection with nature. This lead her to establish the first nature-based yoga facility in the GTA on her family's’ farm, a facility based on her belief that practicing mindfulness and yoga in nature has a synergistic effect on our mental, spiritual and physical health. The power of both nature and yoga together is greater than the sum of each individually. Over the years, yoga and nature has deeply enriched her life and she continues to find fulfillment in helping others to find the same joy that it has brought her.
