ONLINE Yogic Nutrition

With Gurudevi Nirmalanda

4 Tuesdays beginning October 5


What does a yogi eat?  To achieve health as well as pleasure and (most importantly) spiritual development, yogis feed themselves consciously.  This course focuses on what to eat, when and why; the companion course titled “Yoga of Food” is about how you eat as well as your relationship with food.

Drawing on yoga, Ayurveda and scientific nutritional guidelines, Gurudevi gives you easy ways to improve your nutritional profile.  Each class includes her teachings as well as a tasting session with discussion and easy recipes for your homework.  If you were able to be in-person, your tasting session would be foods prepared by the Ashram, but for an online course, you’ll have to do some simple preparation before class.  It may include slicing apples or heating milk or a non-dairy alternative.

Putting it into practice means you have homework, to eat certain things in the week between classes and report on your experience.  As these principles begin working for you, you’ll notice a change in your digestion, assimilation and elimination.  Taste is also important, especially as it contributes to your nutrition as well as your quality of life.  An email report is part of your homework, sharing with Gurudevi and your classmates about your experience and learning process.  And you’ll discover that you learn so much from their experiences as well!

Enrollment is limited, so everyone can participate in the discussions as well as get personalized support and recommendations from Gurudevi. 

This course is not a substitute for medical treatment for any condition, nor is it a substitute for treatment or counseling by a nutritionist or qualified alternative health professional.  The principles being taught are meant only to support yogis in their process of personal transformation and spiritual development.
