Divya Alter



At the age of 18 Divya began studying yoga full-time, and continued this lifestyle for fifteen years. This included a five year tenure as a Sankrit editor for a major publisher of India classical texts, and a five year stay in India, where she helped establish a school for sacred arts in Uttar Pradesh. Throughout this, food, health and Ayurveda have been a base theme and practice for her, which she has shared and taught throughout India, Europe and the U.S. for the past 25 years.

She has taught cooking to thousands of people in New York over the past five years and has provided regular food service and nutritional instruction for Kripalu Center, The Art of Living Foundation, Eileen Fisher Inc, The United Nations and many others. She lives with her husband in the East Village.
