For many people who practice yoga, there is one important principle that resides high on their list of priorities - the principle that food is the most powerful means of healing and balancing the body and mind. It’s important to note that nutrition is a fundamental means for healing for us. If you have that right, then all other modalities like yoga therapy will work much more effectively.
