In this episode, we explore concepts of ahimsa, vegetarianism, veganism, diet culture, and a sattvic diet. We discuss how non-injury and non-harm can be interpreted in different ways, depending on your yoga education and your religious beliefs. We share our personal stories and thoughts on diet and lifestyle as yoga teachers, the reality of what it means to eat in a yogic way, what it means to be healthy. We discuss individual contribution vs governmental regulation when it comes to food and responsibility. As always, we wrap the episodes with tips for practicing ahimsa when it comes to diet culture.
