YOGA, FOOD AND THE MIND
Yogis learn very quickly that the nature and quality of the food that a Yoga practitioner eats is just as important as the Asanas (physical postures), Pranayamas (life force control via breath manipulation), Dharana (concentration) and Dhyana (meditation) that make up a complete Yoga Sadhana (practice). Therefore, an improperly nourished Mind, Body and Breath will not allow one to reach the level of stillness of mind necessary to attain self-realization, the ultimate state of Yoga.
EAT LIKE A YOGI, FEEL LIKE A YOGI
Food that is in alignment with your highest vibration is organic, cruelty-free, delicious, satisfying, health promoting and conducive to the expansion of your conscious awareness. In the Yoga and Ayurveda traditions of India, this genre of food is known as “Sattvic” food, meaning pure food. From a western nutritional perspective Sattvic food is often equated to highly mineralized, nutrient dense, high vibrational, calorie sparse food that almost everyone can eat, regardless of dietary restrictions.
