Yogic Diet, Detox & Lifestyle
YOGIC DIET AND NUTRITION
In yoga we are advised to take one whole day once a month to eat fruit or drink fruit smoothies, herbal teas and water only. This gives the digestive system a much needed rest; it releases toxins and fights disease and gives deeper states of awareness. There are many special yogic techniques and practice’s to cleanse the body of waste products and toxins. They are called Shat Karmas consisting of cleansing the nose and tongue, cleansing of the lower intestines and colon, cleansing of the abdominals, and cleansing the lungs and skull- a complete detox. I teach all these practices at my workshops and in my Detox Video
For me true beauty and health comes from how we think and feel about ourselves, from what we put inside our bodies and from practising yoga and meditation. If we eat natures energy ripened fruits and vegetables; if we think, feel and tell ourselves often that we are worthy, that we are abundant and that we are loved; if we keep our bodies and minds strong, fit and free of negativity and if we give out love and are kind and compassionate to others- we will feel wonderful, be in harmony with life and receive these things back.
The Dalai Lama tells us; “Happiness is the highest form of Health!”
As we practice yoga and meditation we become detached from material things and have less mental and therefore less physical stress. We feel calm, positive and worry free, and find that we have less need for cigarettes, alcohol, drugs, meat, coffee, sugar or chaotic dramas and situations. To me there is no better high than meditation, connecting with Spirit and feeling that peaceful, present awareness is a magnificent, natural high.
