What People are Saying

Divya flips the typical cooking principles table so to speak, by taking a holistic approach with the body and kitchen combined together and not just the cooking/recipe part of it, because food does not act in isolation but in collaboration with the body and mind.

I have never met Divya in person, but she radiates kindness and love, even through her videos. I hope to meet her one day and give her a big hug! This masterclass was so well put together and presented with a wealth of knowledge, and it’s obvious how much love, time and effort went into it.

Divya’s masterclass series was magical! Her gentle presence and clear guidance made me feel like I can cook with joy and ease and feel more creative in the kitchen even as I attend to my own imbalances and try to feed my family. If you feel like you couldn’t possibly cook in a way that reflects Āyurvedic teachings, you MUST watch these classes. They’ll give you confidence and the tools you need to make cooking an act of love and genuine self-care.rnTurn on screen reader supportrn

Absolutely love each part of this masterclass. I have learnt so much, and it has changed some of my practices already. I made my first paneer cheese and it was so fulfilling to make it.

Meet Your Teacher

Divya Alter is a pioneer of Ayurvedic cooking in the West, having taught over 20,000 students for the past 13 years, both in New York City and abroad. She is the co-founder of the nation’s first Ayurvedic culinary school (Bhagavat Life) and the chef-owner of the award-winning New York City restaurant, Divya’s Kitchen, which reimagines classic dishes through an Ayurvedic lens.

Divya began her practice over 30 years ago as an intern in the kitchen of a yoga ashram in her native country of Bulgaria. Soon after, she moved to India, where she became captivated by Ayurveda and the notion that prevention and healing can take place through food (it is through Ayurveda that she cured herself from an autoimmune disease). Consequently, Divya became a certified nutritional consultant, educator and chef in the Shaka Vansiya Ayurveda tradition.
