Meet The Sattvic Team
David Rogers, Owner & Chef
27 JUNE 2016
Please meet two of my favorite people. Emily studied under Dr. Lad at the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and apprenticed with Dr. Ramadas, Chief Physician at the Vaidyagrama-Ayurveda Healing Village in Tamil Nadu. Prakash is from the Indian state of Maharashtra. He grew up in a family that observed traditional Ayurvedic food practices on a daily basis, and has more than 20 years experience working as an Ayurvedic chef in India, Australia and the United States. Today, Emily and Prakash co-direct Agni Ayurveda in Santa Fe, providing Ayurvedic therapy services, consultations and an innovative sattvic food service.
I have known Prakash since 2003 when I opened Albuquerque’s first Bikram Yoga studio. Emily and I have known each other for less than a year, but already I feel grateful to be connected to her generous spirit and perceptive mind. Together, the three of us share a vision of making the healing practices and wisdom of Ayurveda and yoga more accessible to those not yet immersed in it as deeply as we are.
Ideas that we have discussed include:
- online cooking classes
- building a network of food carts, cafes, or restaurants serving sattvic food
- in-person half-day or day-long classes in sattvic cooking
- cooking retreats designed to make you feel confident that you can prepare sattvic food for yourself and your loved ones, with daily morning yoga practice and access to Ayurvedic healing therapies and consultations.
Do you find any of these ideas interesting?
