Our Culinary Experience

At Ekaanta we focus on Slow Cuisine. All dishes are prepared keeping in mind that the ingredients are seasonal and local, the food is made in collaboration with nutritionists so the combinations of the produce, spices and cooking methods are in sync with your body and mind.

Each meal is an experience in appreciating familiar textures and flavors that have been given a new context. In the Ekaanta space, the endeavour of the nutrition team is also to center you, allow you to pause, as you experience our culinary journey.

OUR FOCUS ON PHYSICAL WELLBEING

Yoga

Here at Ekaanta we believe that “Yoga does not change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees”.

Modern lifestyle confines and limits our movements. We sit in a similar position all day at the dining table, in cars, at offices, at the movies, and watching T.V; all this hampers the free flow of Pranshakti (the life force) in our body. When this energy becomes blocked, it results in stiffness, muscular tension, lack of proper blood flow and minor functional defects.
