It belongs to yoga.....

It belongs to yoga....

1. It's healthy food. Yep. I never do a diet, a fast or a cleansing. I always get back to eat healthy food. Then it might take a bit longer till I have my favourite weight again, but it also lasts. Birthday parties, restaurant visits, monthly cycles are part of my life. What can I do? I don't want to live in the caves of the Himalaya. Yesterday I prepared a healthy salad for myself, something lively, something raw. Rooooaaaaaar.
My practices shall become easier again, they are easier with a bit less kilos on my ribs.

2. It's space clearing. Yoga as I do it now is time-consuming (90 min a day and commuting and bathing afterwards). I don't think that it is too much to move the body 90 min every day. Our modern life is unhealthy. We sit in chairs at desks often longer than 8 hours. Nevertheless this time for the body and the mind must be created. I work on it for years, it's an ongoing process. My life shall become easier, I need less stuff. This surely will help me not to have the feeling all the time that there is time pressue. Yesterday I threw away perhaps 20 pens. I didn't test if they still write or not. To have more than 100 pens is too much. Point. The video player that I haven't used in years is back at my parents home. Sigh. This space clearing process goes on today. New things shall happen in my life. I create the space first.

Primary today. I'll practice full vinyasa, I need strength.
In the "Yoga mala" by P. Jois is described what full vinyasa is. Thanks for buying via my blog.

A simple and healthy life, that's it. No, this is not boring.

This is really goo d for health.I would definitly make a note of this..Fibres are good for health in day to day life where we consume lots of junk foods.

It is good for health. But there is nothing called an 'ideal diet' as such. But a balanced diet is always preferred and recommended. A preferred meal for any yogi is Lacto-vegetarian food. This includes whole-grain cereals, wheat-germ, gram flour, oilseeds, vegetable oils, nuts, roots, green and fresh vegetables, fresh and dry fruits, honey, sugar, milk, ghee, butter, sweet buttermilk, sweet curd and germinated grams.
