|Eric Ripert practices meditation|
What do you get when you combine a top notch chef and famous NYC restaurant owner with meditation? Eric Ripert! Charismatic owner of the Le Bernardin restaurant in New York City says: “it is a real pleasure to be able to meditate.”
In a video for Fast Company, Ripert owns up to how he used to be angry and frustrated chef who didn’t think anything of throwing plates on the floor to express himself. But when he started a practice of meditation, he slowly learned to make space for happiness and compassion. His spiritual epiphanies now influence everything he does, in his kitchen and beyond.

The night before second new moon of the year is known as Mahashivratri. A gift from nature, the unique planetary positions on this night initiate an upsurge of energy in the human system. By staying awake and keeping the spine erect one can reap immense benefits. Spending Mahashivratri at the The Abode of Yoga can be a profound experience and step towards one’s inner growth.
