Although it is not critical for yoga practitioners to survive on aloe vera juice and cactus pies, it might be prudent to be aware of any harm that some meats, alcohol, and junk foods may do to our bodies. I find it amusing that we sometimes advocate yogic values for over an hour; and then go out and treat ourselves to “a pint of wellness” at the nearest pub. Obviously, yoga is not working for some of us, or we would not need to seek out external modes of stimulation. Especially during seasonal vacations, we need to be all the more aware of this; unless of course it is regarded sincerely as a seasonal social activity that offers sporadic highs.
