Yoga and Diet

Wai Lana yoga DVD's and suppliesOne of the basic for a successful yoga practice, together with breathing and a positive attitude, is the diet. It is highly recommended to perform your yoga session after about 2 hours from a main meal.

Many specialists agree that what we eat is reflected both in our appearance, as well as in our health, both mental and physical.

Therefore, it is obvious that it is important to pay attention to both the food and drink, and supplements, which we consume in order to prevent illnesses and discomforts.

However, there's a lot of argument about what healthy food really is.

According to many very reliable studies, a diversified diet represents the ideal food for any human organism. However, fruits and vegetables, containing fibers and vitamins should be a permanent component of your daily meals. Furthermore, everything that can be defined as natural food is recommended, when it comes to preserving your state of well being.

Despite the fact that many people try to eat as little as possible, as believing that food is the cause of their problems, you must understand that your body needs good quality nutrition in order to function properly. It is a difficult balance as you must also be careful not to overdo it when eating. Even if you are consuming only healthy food, too much of even good food can overload your mind, and more ways than one!

Try to stop eating once you are not hungry anymore, or, even better, stop before reaching the full saturation state. By doing this, you will discover that the state of fatigue, which we sometimes experience after eating, is considerably diminished, while your energy level goes up substantially.

Another issue related to eating is how often should a healthy person eat? Should we have three meals a day? Should we avoid having dinner, in order to prevent becoming overweight, because we do not move sufficiently during the night? Or is it better not to have lunch, so that you do not have to deal, in the middle of the day, with the unpleasant sensation of fatigue, which we experience after serving a consistent meal? Well, the right answer to all these questions would be to eat whenever you are hungry, as your body needs to be fed in order to function at the standards you desire, but, nevertheless, pay attention to what and how much you are eating.

This way, their body is protected from the danger of contracting toxins and it is prepared, at the same time, to find the synchronization with the soul and mind, which is actually one of the main goals of yoga practices.

As a final remark, when carrying out a regular yoga practice, it is important, in order to reach your goals, to meditate both on what you are doing to your own body, as a direct consequence of the food you are eating, and to what level you respond to the needs of both your soul, and your well as your body.
