Yoga Diet: What To Eat And When

Just how you obsess over following the right posture for yoga asanas, remember that eating a healthy diet is also crucial. In fact, yogis believe that diet is an integral part of yoga. This not only helps in developing a mindful eating practice but also supports and nurtures your yoga regime. 

There are a lot of myths and truths about the foods that are considered good and bad for yoga practice. Many believe that eating ghee can help in relieving body stiffness, and that one fruit before yoga practice is a must. Here, we have sorted some basic and general food rules that are followed by yoga practitioners.

Belief in Sattvic diet
According to Ayurveda, there are three broad dimensions, Tama (slow, lethargic, bland), Sattva (purity, harmony), Raja (hot, spicy, fast). These three qualities are present in everything, but in different quantities and thus, making one quality dominant. When it comes to Rajasic foods, they are believed to be hot, bitter, dry, salty, or spicy. They overstimulate the mind. Tamasic foods are bland. They include meat, alcohol, tobacco, garlic, onions, fermented foods, and overripe substances. Sattvic food is considered as the purest form of diet. It is believed that Sattvic food is suitable for those who follow a yoga regime. It helps in nourishing the body and maintains a peaceful state. You stay calm and your body gets purified.

Here are a few Sattvic foods
  • Fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Pure fruit juices
  • Wholewheat bread
  • Seeds and nuts
