what is a yoga chef?
Yoga literally means “to yoke” – meaning to combine mind, body, spirit, and practice. Just as we combine these qualities on the mat, so can we in the kitchen. As conscious eating become more prolific, there is a growing need for grounded conscious chefs to cook for retreats, individuals, and groups. We are here to support this movement!

investment 
All chefs set their own rates, but we adhere to industry standards. In general, expect to pay private chef rates for under 10 guests, and a per person set cost for retreats dinners over ten guests. Meal prep services vary and depend on if the chef is preparing a custom menu for you or batches meals for multiple clients simultaneously.
Rates vary by menu, amount of meals, location, and chef’s experience level. Please let us know what your ideal budget is when you contact us so we can try to pair you with a chef within your range. There is never any charge for connection.
