Yogisattva is India's First Whole Foods Plant Based Culinary Academy combined with a Farm to Fork Plant Based Delivery Kitchen located in Mumbai. We teach and retail unprocessed nutrient dense Plant Based Food. Yogisattva literally translates as 'Yoga Being'. Yoga is an eight-fold path towards enlightenment. Every person is on a different stage of this eight fold path, making each individual a 'Yogisattva'.
We have taken all our existing cooking classes online so now you can learn from our founder & Certified Plant Based Chef Raveena Taurani, from any part of the world. We conduct Certified Culinary Courses, shorter Cooking Classes, private Cooking Lessons as well as cooking lessons for your home cook/maharaj.
The goal of Yogisattva is to support farmers by buying organic produce across different farms in Maharashtra as well as to empower people with the knowledge on how to feed themselves with nutrient dense unprocessed food. All the food we teach and retail at our outlet is primarily organic, vegan, gluten free and refined sugar free.
Whole Foods Plant Based refers to a lifestyle that is rich in unprocessed foods mostly derived from nature.The main motivation for this lifestyle is based on working towards optimal health. The focus is on strengthening the digestive system as well as overall gut health through the food consumed. In our definition of Whole Foods Plant Based, we also use Organic Cold Pressed Oils in our cooking as we believe they are essential for the body for lubricating the joints and keeping the body healthy.
FOUNDER AND CEO OF YOGISATTVA
In 2014, I had a severe spine injury which led me to re-discover Yoga. It was during my journey in Ashtanga Yoga that I was introduced to raw and vegan food. The strength and focus I gained by being on this lifestyle was immeasurable. My digestive system felt great and my sleep pattern improved. My interest was piqued by the health benefits of unprocessed food and the eagerness to learn more took me to Bali where I trained as a Raw Food Chef at The Seeds Of Life in 2015. In 2015 and 2016, I received certification in Culinary Nutrition and Sports Nutrition with a focus in Raw and Plant Based Food from the Matthew Kenney Culinary Academy in California. In 2019, I qualified as an Advanced Vegan Diploma Graduate from Demuths in England.
What started out as me making smoothies for my friends post a workout session has now grown into something much bigger. From working in my home kitchen to travelling across the globe and providing Plant Based Catering, Yogisattva now has a space of its own as a Culinary Academy & Farm to Fork Delivery Kitchen located on the 7th Floor of Pinnacle House, Above Arth Restaurant, on 15th Road Khar.
As a certified Plant Based Chef, my goal with Yogisattva is to encourage everyone to nourish themselves inside out. Eating unprocessed nutrient dense food is such a great way to nourish yourself, that means even if you're consuming ketchup, you must know how to make it yourself. I don't believe that one lifestyle suits everyone but I do believe that the closer you eat to nature, the healthier you are going to be. Organic, Seasonal and Local Produce is the key for you developing a sustainable lifestyle. Discover how to change your life one meal at a time with me at Yogisattva.
