In this series of talks we’ll begin by discussing the ethical aspect of veganism in relation to Yoga, starting with Ahimsa, one of the Yamas (behavioral codes of yoga), which means nonviolence: to be compassionate towards all living beings, without distinction, in deeds, words and thoughts. We’ll talk about speciesism, which is the discrimination of certain species, the idea that some species are superior to others, or that humans are morally superior to every other species and therefore more deserving of life.
We’ll talk about the nutritional aspect of food and what that means for our physical health. The importance of eating whole foods and live foods, the quality of ingredients, the digestion process, and how the way we eat directly affects our overall performance, will be some of the topics to develop in this session.
Finally, we will talk about the spiritual aspect of food: how can food affect our mind? Our thoughts? Our asana practice? Our meditation? How can our eating habits reflect our compassion and bring us closer to all of Creation, to the Absolute? We look forward to answering these questions together!
"Let your belly be your pot" Yogi Gupta “If you eat fried and toasted you will feel fried and tosted” Dharma Mittra
Pablo Herrerías is an Industrial Engineer and yoga teacher with ample experience in the food and agricultural sectors. After graduating from engineering school in 2014, he co-founded O-Taga, a farm-to-table cafeteria and garden in San Miguel de Allende. It was there, distributing his organic produce, where he met and learned from various renowned chefs and traditional cooks. He then studied permaculture and Biodynamics with celebrated teachers like Jairo Restrepo, Eugenio Grass and Ignacio Simón.
In 2015 Pablo began his yoga practice. He became a student of Sri Dharma Mittra in 2016 and since then he visits New York as often as possible to continue to learn from him and support the community around him. He’s taken Dharma’s 200, 500 and 800 hour Teacher Trainings.
Back in Mexico he’s worked as a vegan cook, given talks and taught workshops on food, veganism and yoga in various different retreats and teacher trainings, like the Sadhaka Training and Chula Vista Center. The more he studies and exercises in the fields of food, agriculture and yoga, the more he’s realized that the three are inextricably intertwined, and his passion lies in sharing that knowledge.
