In continuing my study of the Yamas, Brahmacharya has to be one of the most intense and confusing with many people having many different opinions over what it truly means.
I turned to Yoga International for some guidance and found this video on their site. Click the image below!
For me, when I think about what may be out of balance in my life and what has been out of balance for a very long time was my relationship with food. I suffered from eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, over-eating) for over 20 years. While food continues to be a struggle for me, exploring that relationship through Brahmacharya has helped me see it in a new light.
I’ve taken steps in the past, but by viewing my relationship with food through the Yamas (all of them apply here!), it is helping to do some deeper work and to further develop a healthier and more beneficial existence with the nourishment my body needs to do the things I love to do and to be the best version of myself I can be on a daily basis.
