Elements truffles was born at the intersection of two things that make me happy - chocolates and meditation. We are an Ayurveda inspired line of clean chocolates that taste good and do good - for the body, mind, and community.
Before that Alak was a trader and VP at Goldman Sachs. Everything was going well, but a sense of purpose was missing. I was good at what I was doing, but I felt I was meant to do something else. About 12 years ago, I learned to meditate. And as I grew in the practice, I became more aware of the food I was eating. I noticed that I was integrating a lot of elements of the Ayurvedic lifestyle, which was naturally a part of our life growing up. Ayurveda, also known as the sister science to Yoga, was now taking me back to my roots.
Alak volunteers her time teaching breath-work and meditation through the Art of Living Foundation, an international NGO.
