    # 2 THE YOGA LOCAL Podcast | Can I eat meat and be a yogi?

    Does doing Yoga mean I can’t eat meat, eggs or dairy?

    5 things that Ayurveda has taught me and guides my choices.

    Today we’re taking about two things.

    Ahimsa and Veganuary.

    Ahimsa is the yoga concept of ‘do no harm’ and something we’re working on this week a part of #takecare month. What that looks like in our home practice is making more use of blocks and straps, working into postures with compassion, not forcing, criticising, judging.

    It’s also ‘Go Vegan in January’ month… or Veganuary.

     

    So sit back relax and find out how I’m guided to make choices through the teachings of Ayurveda on this week’s podcast.
