Meet Your Teacher

Divya Alter is a pioneer of Ayurvedic cooking, having taught over 20,000 students worldwide. She is the co-founder of America’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.

This part of Divya’s life began over 30 years ago as a kitchen intern in a Bulgarian ashram. Soon after, she moved to India, where Ayurveda and the notion that prevention and healing can take place through food captivated her. It is also through Ayurveda she healed herself from an autoimmune disorder. Consequently, Divya became a certified nutritional consultant, educator and chef in the Shaka Vansiya Ayurveda tradition.
