Bella Cortis, Assistant
As a vegetarian cook, Bella loves preparing healthy yet hearty vegetarian meals, and she is always available to give tips and advice to those who take up vegetarianism as a life choice.
Yoga includes yoga philosophy, which favours a vegetarian diet. Vegetarian cooking has always been a hobby of Bella’s, and she enjoys contributing to Lotus Room events, for example with prasadam on Bhakti Yoga evenings, or catering for yoga retreats or day workshops.
Bella experienced her first hatha yoga class in 2002, when her daughter Jenny began teaching yoga. She felt overwhelmed by the experience, and began attending her yoga classes regularly, offering her daughter encouragement to continue teaching and to develop the Lotus Room. Being the vegetarian cook at Lotus Room events and the vegetarianism advisor for Lotus Room students is part of her contribution.
