Yoga Diet

Article on Nutrition with an opinion of the best yoga diet written for and edited by Chicago School of Motion Inc.

Written by Ray Florio, Health editor for Jetset Magazine and Private Health Consultant.

Chicago school of Motion likes to support proper nutrition. Following the tips below will heighten your yoga practice. It is a good guide to take into consideration to maintain the physical body throughout the entire workout. Chicago School of Motion would like you to consider different substances affecting chi. This article

Yogi Bhajan always emphasized how important it was to strengthen the navel center, which is our main energy source. Foods, along with their flavors and temperatures have a direct effect on how well chi is cultivated and how balance can be maintained throughout all seasons.

All food should be eaten at least 2 hours before and an hour and a half before if it’s very light. It’s best to make sure hydration is taken care of at least a half hour before practice and not until a half hour after. 30 minutes before and after practice are the most important times to make sure chi is not lost. Cold drinks and water will especially have an adverse effect on the flowing of energy during this time.

If practicing outside, use a rubber mat so kidney chi does not get absorbed into the earth. Warm tea at least 40 minutes after can nourish the physical and spiritual body. Use a sour flavor to nourish the muscles. Lemon is sour. It helps alkalize the body and is very cleansing. It also helps suppress the appetite.

Chi and blood flow together. Cleansing the blood is important in detoxification, which can help strengthen chi. One of the best blood cleansers for humans, is the blood of plants; chlorophyll. Burdock root made into an infusion is very good. Basic and most important, but sometimes overlooked, is the quality of water one drinks. Pure spring water stored in a glass bottle is always best.

A raw food diet should always include some hot foods like soups and teas. Eating all cold foods will not help with the build up of heat in the second chakra and can cause many imbalances.

When eating vegan, there are many details to know that can prevent disturbances in the body systems.

Soy (Tofu) – Don’t eat it unless it’s fermented. Even then I suggest staying away from it. Most people eat soy for its protein, but with all the other great protein sources available, why risk your health with soy when it can easily be replaced with a much better source? Most soy is genetically modified, and studies show that it is one of the major things that causes hormone imbalance, especially in women. It’s no coincidence that it is marketed as a health product specifically for women. Soybean oil is also included in many processed foods now as an attempt for the food to appear healthier. You’ll notice it’s usually right next to partially hydrogenated oil and high fructose corn syrup. Read ingredient labels always.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids – Some still say plant based omega 3’s are good enough for the human body, but plant based sources are medium chain fatty acids, when the body also needs long chain. Long chain omega 3’s in the form of EPA and DHA are necessary for proper brain function. Too much plant based omega 3s have to be eaten in order to be converted into long chains in the body. Most “vegans” I know eat fish anyway, so get a high quality fish or krill oil.
