One of my teachers says that if there is a lifestyle for yoga, it is Ayurveda. Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences and leading an Ayurvedic lifestyle will support your yoga practice in tremendous ways. One of the reasons why Ayurveda is so supportive of yoga is that it leads us to a more sattvic way of life. But what is the meaning of sattva? Why is it important to lead a life of clarity and purity if you wish to practice yoga? This post will explore sattva meaning and how to recognize sattvic qualities.
