Sad how the sacred practice of Yoga, which I personally have great respect for as it has helped bring such peace, joy and awareness into my life, is being used in the same "sentence" as calories?!! Dieting and counting calories are the first signs of developing an eating disorder and they also contribute to it… I have worked with women who are severely challenged with this deadly and life destructive disease and do not support anything that ever promotes nor brings attention dieting and counting calories… Would rather have this space be used for other more informative, positive, loving pieces of knowledge…
Thank you for the opportunity for me to express this and to bring further awareness…
Of course, thank you! I don't count calories at all, personally, but find there's a middle path and enjoy knowing how much exercise it might take to offset some indulgence. In any case, your concerns and experience would make a wonderful article–and, I'm sure, a more serious contribution to this space. [email protected] if interested, Sarah! ~ Waylon
