PHYSICAL REACTIONS TO TASTES

FOOD FOR ORGANS
A small Yogic journey into the world of food, to understand, at least in part, what happens when food enters the body. Every taste induces a psycho-physical reaction, different types of food feed different organs and above all a certain diet determines the general state of health of the body.
We will consider the influence of foods on the body and the possibility of making the action reversible through the practices yoga. For example: if a wrong diet leads to an overproduction of mucus, which clogs the lungs and therefore makes breathing difficult, through the work on the breath, together with the awareness of harmful foods, lung health can be restored; in the same way if the intestinal functioning is altered, the yoga exercises can contribute to its rehabilitation.
The first workshops will work in particular on the link between diet, breath, bowel and headache. In the second meeting, instead, we will have fun exploring physical responses to specific foods reproducing the same foods at an archetypal level.
«Lifestyle, climate change and other subjective factors, such as food intolerances and allergies, require a careful consideration of what to eat. [….] It will therefore be necessary to seek a state of sattva in the balance through the foods adapted to one’s own condition » ( Gilda Giannoni, Yoga, dall’Armonia alla Gioia).
