Should yogis be vegans?


Jivamukti teachers host a "non-preachy" event on the connection between yoga and an animal-free diet.

cowThere’s contentious debate in the yoga world about what yogis should eat. On one side, Jivamukti incorporates hard-core vegan and vegetarian education into its teacher training program. While on the other, popular instructor David Romanelli pairs his yoga classes with wine, chocolate, and various other creamy indulgences.

The debate is so intense, in fact, that famed yogi Sadie Nardini felt the need to “come out” as a meat-eater on the Huffington Post a little over a year ago. “There is a strong “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy in the yoga community that is keeping students, and even many teachers, locked firmly inside the meat-eating closet,” she wrote. “If they do tell, they run the risk of being placed somewhere along the imaginary, self-created spectrum of yoginess, usually more towards the bottom than the vegans among us.”

On Monday, November 15th, Jivamukti teachers Lisa Dawn Angerame & Tamar Samir will host what they call a “non-preachy” open discussion on the topic at the JivamukTEA cafe. The dialogue will touch on Sharon Gannon’s book, The Diet of Enlightenment: Yoga & Vegetarianism and Angerame and Samir will discuss their own experiences as vegans. Never mind that a few steps away in the shop, Jivamukti private labels its own China Gel with Triethanolamine (a skin, immune system, and respiratory toxin), DMDM Hydantoin (a formaldehyde releaser), and dyes like Blue 1 (CI 42090) and Yellow 5. Are those ingredients part of a vegan diet?

“Yoga & Vegetarianism” will be held Monday, November 15th, at 8PM in the Jivamukti Cafe, 841 Broadway, 2nd Floor, between 13th and 14th streets, www.jivamuktiyoga.com
