Vegetarian Cooking

Join a group of like-minded people in the East Village to explore the art of cooking incredibly tasty and healthy food! In these classes, you will learn a variety of dishes, flavors, utensils, smells, textures, and colors to make your life better. And you'll most certainly walk away finding your kitchen a more comfortable, useful, and inspiring place, no matter who you are! This approach is based on the SVA Ayurveda tradition, a 5,000-year-old lineage of holistic medicine that comes from India. It applies to practically any style of cooking, culture, or circumstance.

Seasonal COoking Classes General


May Theme:  Cooking for Spring Detoxing

For this series of hands-on cooking classes, we will be focusing on the theme of spring detox.  Aside from seeing the trees going green and the flowers blooming, the spring season is a great time to let our bodies rest and detox.  This is a time where our micro-circulatory channels naturally soften and expand, making the release of toxins much easier.  


Come discover a whole load of new recipes that include such elements as: dark leafy greens; vegetable entrees that support the liver, kidneys, and colon; spices that help unblock our energy channels and chakras; tonifying soups; smoothies; chutneys; and Khichari, a centerpiece of Ayurvedic nutritional healing.


Topics for discussion include:

  • Preparing the physical and vibrational channels for detox 
  • What are toxins?
  • When detoxification can become re-toxification
  • Detox Routine - daily, weekly, monthly, annually
  • The 7 body tissues and what foods clean them
  • Home Detox Protocol - gradual, gentle, and effective cleansing without side effects  
Tuesdays,  May 23rd & May 30th, or  Sundays, May 14 & May 21, 6pm - 9pm
$125 for one session, $225 for both.
