These are one-session classes that introduce you to the art of making delicious easy-to-make vegetarian meals based on SVA Ayurveda. You will gain a basic understanding of:
Each class will combine discussion, participatory cooking demonstrations, and ends with a delicious meal for everyone! As Ayurveda aligns health with the rhythm of the seasons, our intro cooking classes change focus seasonally.
Classes are generally available Monday & Wednesday from 6-9pm and Saturday & Sunday from 3-6pm. Three hours is indicated because there is a meal afterwards and people tend to stay over that long. Classes are subject to availability. You must RSVP ahead of time. We recommend registering 1-3 weeks in advance. If someone cancels their registration within 24 hours, they may reschedule or apply the purchase value to another Bhagavat Life event or service. Bhagavat Life does not offer refunds.
All classes take place at our location: 25 1st Ave 5th Floor. Enter the building through the Bhakti Center main doors.
Spring is about rejuvenation, opening up our bodies and letting go of the winter's accumulated wastes and weight. It's about awakening our cells to welcome the healing heat and light of the sun.
Spring is also Kapha season, the season for detoxifying our body to restore the equilibrium of water and earth energies that lubricate and nurture it: Kapha.
In these cooking classes you'll learn how to prepare delicious and easy-to-make dishes that unlock all these great forces of nature. You'll work creatively with bitter, pungent and astringent foods, and all nuances of greens, to create a wide variety of soups, drinks, appetizers, entrees, salads and desserts that are so tasty you'll forget they're detoxifying!
