Yoga Lunch

A few days ago I was surprised that my UPOU schoolmate Jason is now an active member of the Yoga club. He is starting to practice the Yoga lifestyle and he's a neophyte vegetarian.

He invited me to attend Yoga Lunch at Makati Bel-Air this afternoon. First we did yoga asanas and then we had a class on vegetarianism, cooking demo , we had lunch which is purely vegetarian and there was a lecture about Yoga from a bonafide guest speaker.

We learned so much about Yoga. There is something beyond it, which not all people knew.

Yoga is not about exercise but the science of our identity, it explains relationship among people, why people are angry, why they are envious, why I am like this, etc.

It is something that we can do internally that even we encounter problems we will be able to manage it. One way of applying Yoga Lifestyle is through diet. Becoming vegetarian helps in practicing Yoga. I would like to share things that I learned during the lunch.

How to become vegetarian ?

There are four general reasons why people go vegetarian.

1. Health , those people who would like to become slim.

2. Environment, it's a fact that being vegetarian is the best way to contribute to Mother Earth.

3. Ethics/Morals , there are people who acknowledge that animals also feel the same way, just like you and I , they don't want to get hurt.

They feel pain.

4. Religious, some are obliged because meat eating is not allowed in their religion.

Tips on how to succeed in becoming vegetarian.

1. Have a strong determination

2. Some people tend to give up becoming vegetarian because they are not determined.

3. It takes months, years to become vegetarian, so don't rush. Take it real slow.

4. Survival 101 if you are in a military academy : Rice, Toyo, Peanuts, Dingdong, Nesvita.

5. Most people are allergic to Eggs and Seafoods, shifting to plant based diet is a better choice.

Why vegetarianism is Environmental ?

Livestock farming is the largest contributor of environmental degradation in the whole world.

Raising Animals for food can cause:

  • deforestation

  • air and water pollution

  • land degradation

  • loss of topsoil

  • climate change

  • the overuse of resources including oil and water

  • loss of biodiversity


There's so much about Yoga, it includes discipline, ethics, developing one's well being. It is not about exercise alone.
