Yogic Diet and Nutrition

Yoga shouldn’t just be about the poses you know; it should also encompass living a healthy lifestyle and eating the right foods. Experienced yogis know that your diet greatly affects your yoga practice and vice versa. Just as there is a proper way to do yoga poses, there is an equally correct way to eat!

A yogic diet is an ancient and effective philosophy of eating that combines Yoga and Ayurveda to help followers lose weight, have a healthier body, and attain inner peace. The yogic diet draws from that tradition to create a diet plan based on balancing the three doshas—vata, kapha, and pitta.

A yogic diet features foods that help you feel light and energized while avoiding those that cause bloating or lethargy. Yogic diet followers practice choosing foods that are best for your body, mind, and spirit.

By following the yogic diet, you can have a diet plan that’s based on your Ayurvedic body type and optimized for your yoga practice.
