Event description

Description

Change unhealthy relationships with food and eating.

  • Do you eat when you are stressed out, sad or not even hungry?
  • Are you a sugar addict?
  • Have you tried to lose weight only to have regained it a few months later?
  • Have you tried to eat more healthfully, but just can’t seem to stick with it?

Nirmala's Ayurveda Mindful Eating integrates mindful practices with the science behind eating habits. In the class you will learn the scientific basis of how we form eating habits, and how we can use this knowledge to change them. You will also learn concrete mindfulness skills to help you become more aware of and gain control over your eating, and how to use them on your own time, at your convenience and pace.

The class will conclude in preparing a vegetarian dish with spices and fresh ingredients to savor and help you manage unruly eating habits.

This is a three-hour class.

ABOUT NIRMALA'S KITCHEN

Nirmala’s Kitchen is a leading specialty spice manufacturer headquartered in New York’s Hudson Valley and founded in 2003 by Nirmala Narine. She has travelled to over 167 countries working with local farmers in search of unique spices, studying their flavors and combining her extensive Ayurvedic knowledge to create spice blends that fuse cultures through food.

Nirmala started out selling spices at local markets, cultural events and at museums. Now Michelin 3-star chefs seek after her flavorful line of distinctive and high quality spices. Her line of products are sold on six continents

A true talent for discovering wonderful things—we refer to her as the Indiana Jones of spices.” Eric Ripert, Executive Chef/Co-owner at Le Bernardin

Today, Nirmala’s farm is truly a destination, once a working dairy ranch and vibrant rodeo from the 1800s through the 1960s. Five decades later, she has reincarnated the farm to the art of whole living; an Agro-ecology destination, Spice Shop, Apiary, a hands-on learning Cooking School, Spice Suppers, and an Ayurvedic holistic wellness center, focusing on transcendental yoga meditation.

Nirmala is a sought after speaker and consultant on global trends, flavor, and fragrance. She is the author of a YA novel, Ellishiva Cinnamon, and multiple travel-memoir cookbooks, the television host and executive producer of Nirmala’s Spice World (ZLiving Network), and the founder of Nirmala Global Village, a foundation dedicated to empowering orphans around the world.
