Indian Street Food Meets Bollywood

Chef Shibana’s next cooking class at the Santa Fe Culinary Academy is on June 22!

In India, a fun-filled Bollywood movie, with its buffet of melodrama, humor, romance, action and song is known as a Masaala film. Masaala is also a term used in the kitchen for a mixture of different spices cooked together. Chef Shibana Singh brings the notes of the sitar and beats of the tabla mixed with aromas and tastes that will tantalize the taste buds and the soul.

Hands-on, includes lunch. Vegetarian.

Summer Solstice 7-Day Cleanse

Starting JUNE 21ST, I am offering a seven-day cleanse which will make the best use of the Pitta (heat) outside as well the inner Agni (digestive fire).The cleanse will involve a hour and fifteen minutes of group workout, yoga, meditation, and a fresh made juice or smoothie every day for seven days.

Pamela Hester King:

I wish for every individual healing in mind, soul and body, as I was (and still am), an experience such as I have had in working with Shibana. In the moment I may not like it when she tells me to “hold the pose for a few more breaths’, or “good things come in pairs so we’ll repeat that exercise” (I sometimes even dread it!) – however, I always look forward to the satisfaction and wholeness I feel when we had completed our practice together. She has been a gift to me.



I was unable to lose weight or body fat and I realized I needed someone that would push me to the limit. When I workout by myself, I never push. I absolute love Shibana’s sessions. She pushed me to go beyond what I thought I could do. Shibana is so patient with me. She is a truly positive and motivating instructor. I not only have a trainer, but I’ve also found a friend.


Burt and Teri Kirson:

Shibana is unique in that she has extensive knowledge of free-weights and gym equipment/machines but also of yoga and can skillfully combine both forms into a personalized exercise routine to fit any level of physical ability and dexterity.

Personally, I am recovering from recent shoulder surgery. I’ve made more progress training with Shibana in a couple of months than I did with the physical therapy post-operative sessions.

We highly recommend Shibana as a personal trainer . Shibana embodies genuine compassion and cares about her clients regardless of their fitness level. We plan to continue working with her for ongoing progress with our fitness goals.


Alia Khan:

Shibana was my personal trainer for one year. I ended up moving to a different city for work, but would have continued to utilize Shibana’s training services because of her dedication to my weight loss. Her workouts were always customized and She provided me with healthy recipes and encouraged me to adopt her healthy eating approach on a daily basis. I would highly recommended Shibana for weight loss and maintaining long-term weight loss goals.



“I can’t recommend Shibana’s cooking for the pre and post natal period highly enough!  It is so especially important to eat well when carrying a baby, recovering from delivery and nursing, yet you’re more tired than ever.  Shibana’s food was a godsend. She prepared healthy meals to help with the increased nutritional needs of pregnancy, milk production and healing.  Her  services are totally unique as she combines years of nutritional study and practice from various disciplines of the East and West with the skills of a great Indian cook.  Her sensitivity to preparing healthful food that was both nutritious to me and my growing baby, mind body and spirit were a delight to the taste buds and the heart.”
