Bhakti Kitchen is thrilled to invite you to our first Bay Area workshop. Please join us at Glow Yoga & Wellness for The Yoga of Eating: an afternoon of chai, vegan desserts, philosophy, conversation and practical take-home skills to help you take your yoga off the mat and into the kitchen.
Eating matters. Living matters. Love matters more.
A little about us:
Founded by Mahendra Ananda Briksha, Rachel Meyer and Stacy Whittingham, The Bhakti Kitchen believes practicing kitchen yoga is about more than just the asana; it’s about thriving, in the most wonderfully counter cultural kind of way! We’ve seen our own lives soften, bloom and grow through practicing kitchen yoga in its many forms, and we want to share that joy with you, too – so come, love and be nourished in this beloved melding of philosophy and practice. We use Patanjali’s Eight Limbs of Yoga as a model for taking our yoga off the mat and into the kitchen, whether it’s through cooking, baking, mindful eating, or just breathing well, and in so doing, learning to nourish our whole selves, one another, and the world.
We believe that what we eat matters, that eating can indeed be a sacred act, and that yoga’s an ideal path to that union with the divine.
Inspired by progressives like Michael Pollan, Gabriel Cousens and John Robbins, we teach how to eat Real Food: whole, fresh, organic, local when possible, and plant-based, the kind of food that nourishes the whole being, the community, the body, the spirit and the mind, creating balance, or sattva, in the circle of life.
We’ll savor Briksha’s delicious chai, Stacy’s detox wisdom, and Rachel’s homemade bhakti baking. In the process, we’ll explore:
Practicing non-violence around the sacred act of eating
Fasting and detoxification
Food combining basics
What about dairy and gluten?
Soaking and sprouting – why and how?
….and so much more.
