“When diet is wrong medicine is of no use. When diet is correct medicine is of no need.” ~Ayurvedic Proverb.
What we eat influences our physical well-being, and our thoughts and emotions. Yoga and Ayurveda classify food according to the effect provoked in the body and mind, and it can be of three types - Satva, Rajas and Tamas. Tamasic food is the kind of food that makes us lethargic or sluggish. Rajasic food is that which brings about activity or restlessness. Whereas, Sattvic food is the kind that makes you feel light, energetic and enthusiastic. Eating the right food is an essential part of living a yogic Life.
Sattvic foods are those which purify the body and calm the mind. They stimulate the body and mind into action. Cooked food that is consumed within 3-4 hours can be considered sattvic. All food served at Mimamsa Yogshala is Sattvic and prepared with love from the master cook and kitchen staff.
