Isn’t it enough just to practice the Yoga, do we have to regulate our food?’ wonder many. In itself, practicing yoga, is not just a healthy life but at Rishikesh YTTC, they believe that it is also a way of Living, but when complemented with the healthy food habits, it can really create wonders. In fact, eating the right food is an essential part of living a yogic Life.
What we eat, not only influences our physical well being, but also our emotions and thoughts. Yoga, does not dissect food into proteins, carbohydrates or fats, instead it classifies them according to the effect they have on the body and mind, into three types - Satva, Rajas and Tamas. Tamasic food is the kind of food which makes us lethargic or sluggish, while Rajasic food is that which brings about activity or restlessness. Whereas, Sattvic food is the kind which makes you feel light, energetic and enthusiastic.
Sattvic foods are those which purify the body and calm the mind. They stimulate the body and mind into action. Cooked food that is consumed within 3-4 hours can be considered sattvic as Rishikesh Yoga Teacher Training Center focus on well being of our students they do sattvic diet for all of them. These menus are created by their Master Chef Sandeep Semwal who had worked with some of the best Five star Hotels around the world and carries great knowledge about sattvic diet along with this he focuses on hygiene practices at our institution to ensure the food is safe and carries great nutritional values which is much needed for healthy life.
Not just the right kind of food, it is vital to eat the proper quantity of food at the right time. Overindulging leads to lethargy while under eating will not provide enough nourishment. Most of the times we know that our stomach is full but tempted by the taste buds we tend to indulge. The right amount of food cannot be quantified into cups or grams, when we listen to our body attentively we will know when exactly to stop!
