The Chyawanprash & Yogi Experience
When you consume Chyawanprash, and fully take in the six tastes as they appear on the tongue and develop in the body, you’ll leverage the power of ‘rasa’ to nourish and strengthen the body, mind and spirit connection for lightness of being. This prepares you to fully experience and appreciate the essence of your being for asana practice.
Simultaneously, you’ll receive a dose of more than 30 organic and wild-crafted spices and herbs along with honey, ghee, jaggery and black sesame oil. Each of these ingredients have unique Yogic dimensions which restore health, energy and balance:
- Amalaki (amla berry) increases longevity & health quality
- Long Pepper & Malabar Tree aid in Pranik breathing
- Ashwagandha builds physical and mental endurance
- Shatavari supports Yoga Nidra and general happiness
- Bacopa enhances cognition and mental sharpness
- Arjuna and Lotus Seed increase heart health
- Tinospora aids in tissue flexibility
- Chebulic Myrobalan improves gut health
- Golden Apple, Holy Basil, Ginger, Zeodary and Neem encourage detoxification
- Cinnamon, Saffron, Cardamom and Mesua nourish sense organs for enjoyment
- Tribulus and Boerhavia improve water management
- Raisin, Licorice, Phyllanthus, Nut Grass, Leptadenia and Ashwagandha aid stress management
- Jaggery, Raw Honey, Indian Ghee (or Ghruta) and Sesame Oil offers satiety and deliverability of nutrients
Collectively, these ingredients work together to kindle agni and ojas to support and detoxify the entire physiology, opening energy channels for prana to flow freely.
At a molecular level, Chyawanprash contains a high level of Pranik nutrients, which is why it is considered the ‘first and foremost rasayana’. These nutients rejuvenate the body’s tissues and decelerate the aging process, giving you more vitality, energy and clarity for practice.
In addition, PIOR Living Chyawanprash is high in life force. Informed by the ancient Vedic system, each ingredient is sustainably sourced, harvested with the seasons, minimally processed and used with intention. This results in live food filled with high vibrations that facilitate prana replenishment.
Lastly, ‘prash’ in Sanskrit refers to the concept of consuming food artfully or intentionally. Chyawanprash is meant to be consumed mindfully. Mindful eating results in a meditative experience that further replenishes prana and prepares the yogi for practice.
Slowly consume 1-2 teaspoons of Chyawanprash 15+ min before breakfast for at least 2 weeks (but ideally 40 days). To make use of the maximum prana available to us each day, consume between 4 a.m. and sunrise, before or after yoga, meditation or pranayama.
Prior to morning yoga, meditation or pranayama class, allow each student to consume one teaspoon of Chyawanprash.
