Wanna take your yoga off the mat and into the kitchen?
Stacy, Briksha and I will be teaching workshops in the Bay Area in the months to come, along with our usual writing, juicing, breathwork, yoga-ing, and more. We'd love to share this newest extension of our practice with you. Stay tuned for exciting things to come.
In the meantime, here's a little bit about what we do:
Practicing kitchen yoga is about more than just asana; it's about thriving, in the most wonderfully countercultural 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.
Our work is grounded in a bhakti spirit of love and devotion, an emphasis on ahimsa and compassion, and great gratitude to our many teachers. By eating to awaken, food can truly become that which brings us from darkness into light. Namasté.
