About Bhagavat Life
Located in the East Village, Bhagavat Life thrusts its doors open to welcome passersby pursuing healthy living through vegetarian dining and the ancient Ayurvedic holistic healing tradition. A 5,000-year-old Indian form of alternative medicine, Ayurveda is the practice of balancing five physical elements––earth, water, fire, air, and sky––to fuel the body and nurture a long, healthy life. Ayurvedic Nutrition and Culinary Training (ANACT) is offered at Bhagavat Life where students can learn how to cook with simple but specific techniques and ingredients to create a variety of meals with tangible healing benefits for the body and mind.
During cooking classes, chefs trained in Ayurvedic dining help newly minted cooks prepare four-course meals with a variety of vegetarian items and raw or gluten- and dairy-free victuals. In addition to intro cooking classes, Bhagavat Life offers seasonal cooking classes, or for a more private experience, offer group cooking classes and host dinners.
