Sharon Gannon, cofounder of Jivamukti Yoga and author of the extraordinary new book, Yoga and Veganism, shares with us that genuine yoga is not only compatible with, but actually requires, a vegan lifestyle. She bases this not simply on ahimsa, the doctrine of harmlessness that both yogis and vegans celebrate, but on yoga’s other precepts of non-stealing, non-covetousness, and not exploiting another sexually. Make yourself a cup of tea and snuggle up somewhere for an amazing hour of peace, freedom, and real-world spirituality.
