Intro Class – Fall Menu
Classes are generally available Monday & Wednesday from 6-9pm and Saturday & Sunday from 11-2pm. 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.
As summer blends into fall, we change the clothing we wear, the things we do outdoors, and even the way we set our clocks. Yet, how much thought do we give changing what we eat?
Seasonal eating is a sure way to maintain a healthy diet, even if you don’t know much about Ayurveda and how to balance your Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. October weather in New York gives us a cool relief from summer, along with drying winds and shorter days, a shift which tends towards having dry skin, scratchy throat, and clogged sinuses. Seasonal discomforts. By eating the right foods we can overcome all of this.
What foods to eat more? Which food tastes to seek out and why? What spices are best? Answering these questions with practical tools will be the focus of our October Seasonal Cooking Classes
You will learn the qualities of core ingredients, so you can easily decide what you need to eat when you experience common autumn imbalances such as feeling heavy and fatigued, ungrounded and hyper, bloated, constipated, or too emotional.
All recipes will be quick and easy to prepare, with fewer ingredients and maximum taste and satisfaction. You will also learn simple staples like making your own fresh cheese and almond milk, as well as tips for saving time with cooking and menu planning, and more.
Featured dishes include:
I hope you’ve had a joyful and relaxing summer. As you get back in town and back to work, please make sure to walk around and look at the trees. As soon as the leaves change and fall, adjust your diet: indulge yourself with eating more avocados, sweet potatoes, baby bananas, nuts; add a few extra drops of ghee or olive oil to your food--feel in tune with nature.
