Yoga and Veganism

The Diet of Enlightenment

Foreword by Ingrid Newkirk

About The Book

In Yoga and Veganism, Sharon Gannon offers a perspective on the connection between yoga, ahimsa (a respect for all living beings), and nonviolence and a healthy vegan lifestyle.

Yoga and Veganism is an exploration into the Yoga Sutras of Patañjali to discover why and how a vegan diet is the diet of enlightenment. In this collection of essays, renowned yoga instructor and author Shannon Gannon investigates how the yamas of Patanjali­––nonharming, truthfulness, nonstealing, continence and greedlessness––relate to veganism, what one can expect as a result of being established in the practice of each of the yamas, and the philosophy that one becomes free to live peacefully and healthily when working for the freedom of other beings. Each essay offers guidance for those seeking the path to mental and physical wellness through yoga and a vegan diet.
