Quote

“The balance and joy we find in food are a celebration of existence. There is hidden power in our relationship to food, a latent sociopolitical statement in each tasty morsel that passes your lips. The choices you make about food on any given day are a snapshot into your worldview. Each time you eat, you say yes to a whole way of being, eating, living, and feeling. You also say no to an even wider experience of the world. Eating is an activity that, when properly honored, evolves into a celebration of your highest potential for health and well-being.”

-From The Power of Ashtanga Yoga by Kino MacGregor (1978-), international Ashtanga yoga teacher, producer, writer, vlogger

“By taking responsibility for your relationship with food, you reclaim a direct experience of your personal power in the present moment.”

“Mindful eating is very pleasant. We sit beautifully. We are aware of the people surrounding us. We are aware of the food on our plates. This is a deep practice.”
