Naturally, those who practice yoga will find its wisdom even more appealing, since your diet can be completely altered with the help of Ayurveda’s ancient principles. Whether you are dealing with a chronic health issue, or you simply want to lead a healthier life, Ayurveda can complement your yoga lifestyle in several essential ways.

Mind Your Character

Ayurveda recognizes three distinct personality types, and depending on your predominant characteristics, your diet can also be tailored to meet your emotional and psychological needs. Vata people are lively and mostly thin, so their nutrition should consist of sour, salty and sweet tastes, and it should be mostly warm, such as cooked veggies. The Pittas are very fiery, dynamic personas, so cooler, raw foods should keep their character in balance. Finally, the Kapha people are serene, slow and peaceful, so light meals will prevent them from gaining too much weight.
