Cooking & Cleaning

सत्त्वशुद्धिसौमनस्यैकाग्र्येन्द्रियजयाअत्मदर्शनयोग्यत्वानि च

sattva-śuddhiḥ-saumanasyaikāgryendriya-jayātma-darśana-yogyatvāni ca

And sattvic cleansing creates a cheerful mind that can focus the sense organs single-pointedly on the victorious vision of the inner-self.

– Yoga sūtras of Patañjali II.41

Sandi’s Cooking & Cleaning classes are for you if you are looking to become more confident and environmentally friendly in cultivating a relationship with your inner world and outer world. What we take into our body and mind, and what we surround our body and mind with, directly affects every level our being including our ability to imagine new ways of being. Cleanliness brings cheer and cheerfulness brings the freedom to focus on “the victorious vision of the inner self”. Unfortunately, many “foods” and “cleaning products” these days are laden with toxic chemicals that poison our inner and outer world and create obstacles like illness and pollution which make it difficult to practice yoga and feel peaceful in the world. With Climate Change upon us, it’s all the more important to find environmentally-friendly food products and cleaning products, or even better, to make our own! In each of these classes we’ll explore a new plant-based cooking recipe as well as a plant-based cleaning strategy that can help to keep our inner and outer world cleaner, while nourishing our body-mind-spirit-home. If you feel any hesitation about joining a group class, you can start with a private class to get individual attention and familiarity with yogic cooking and cleaning!

“Ok, Sandi, you must launch a vegan yogini food guide with recipes. Omg. You just must.”
