Always a lively topic, join us for this discussion of food and diet practices. Rather than following a prescribed diet from outside, we’ll reflect on how to develop a diet that is personal, flexible, and intuitive. Part I will cover mindful eating and the elements of a balanced diet.
“The yoga approach to health is extremely simple, logical, and practical. It lays stress on the words Yuktahar viharasya – eating and living as they should be done. By simply studying one’s own capacity and learning how to regulate one’s dietary habits, external activities, and thinking process, it is possible for one to gain control over his life and remain healthy. This does not mean that one must do anything unnatural or impossible; there need not be restrictions, but given the information in these lessons, one can decide what is best for himself, and implement whatever changes he chooses, practicing them according to his own capacity.” – Swami Rama, A Practical Guide to Holistic Health, pp. 5-6
