Namasteak: The Food/Yoga Connection

 'Most view food as the most important factor in getting or staying healthy. Of late, even the less nutritionally enlightened have begun to understand the importance of eating a clean, minimally processed, plant-emphatic diet.

And now, the critical mass - albeit reluctantly - consider the idea of moving daily as a lifestyle process that is necessary to fend off dis-ease and promote wellness. If yoga comes up in now commonplace discussions of how to lose weight/avoid illness/defy aging/heal injury, it is surely as the latter prescription....Yoga is not food. It's exercise. Right?

Are we missing an important connection? We are not seeing clearly the overlap in the 'Venn Diagram' that maps out our potential for optimum health and that makes yoga perhaps even more about food than about movement.'
