Yoga Teacher Training – Day 20

by on February 27, 2013

Short Saturday! We started with an elaboration on the four pillars of yoga: ahar (diet), vihar (recreation), aachar (routine), and vichar (thoughts). There are specific rules associated with each practice; for instance, vihar must be performed every day and with a joyful attitude, must be self-involved (i.e. not entirely external, like watching TV), non-competitive, and time-constrained. Our lecturer also confirmed something I’ve been practicing for a while: do not eat fruits after meals! Since fruits digest faster than other foods, they will rot/decompose while waiting their turn behind the rest of the meal. Fruits are best eaten on an empty stomach or between meals.

Then, we ate lunch, relaxed, and went home!
