How and when you eat is one of the most important factors for your yoga practice.
Nourishment of the body’s tissues forms a foundation for nourishment of the mind and emotions.
Classic yogic texts such as Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra and the Bhagavad Gita don’t list any specific foods for following a “yogic diet”, but in the Ayurvedic tradition it is recommended to follow a “Sattvic Diet”.
This is a diet based on foods with the sattva quality (guna). Sattva: pure, essence, nature, vital, energy, clean, conscious, strong, courage, true, honest, wise, rudiment of life.
When eaten in appropriate amounts and at the right time of day, sattvic food generates the ideal state of mind for practicing yoga and a healthy body.
As your yogic practice deepens, you will notice that your eating desires slowly change. You will naturally become more drawn to the foods most beneficial for you and your yoga practice.
What to Eat: Most vegetables, ghee, fruits, legumes, nuts and seeds, food prepared with love and eaten with gratitude.
What to Avoid: Spicy foods, oily fried foods, processed foods, stale foods, refined sugars and grains, chemically enhanced foods, coffee, onions, garlic, alcohol
