FORGIVE YOURSELF Pilates Exercises Forgive your mistakes. Forgiveness is made easier when we can understand the reasons behind our mistakes, when we can understand how our state of mind, how our state of health and how the state of our life influenced our judgment. Mistakes are a part of life and they help us to grow when we choose to team from them.

Each month, our very own editor and yoga expert. Yogi Dr Malik will answer your questions relating to yoga.

A few hours after eating, my stomach always feels bloated. Can you recommend any yoga techniques to help with my digestion?

It could be you are just overeating and/or eating the wrong foods. Incorporate a standard yoga exercise session at least once a week to help you combat such conditions, because you will be stretching and bending, your stomach muscles will receive a natural inner massage. This in turn will help your muscles and the digestive system expel any excess air, bloating and the like. I suggest that you join a yoga class and make yoga a serious part of your lifestyle, as a one-off exercise is not a quick fix solution

I’ve been thinking of becoming a vegetarian for a long time and I was inspired after reading last month’s article on Veganuary. I have tried to stop eating meat before and failed. I’m serious about my yoga, but am I wrong to eat meat when it goes against the first of the yamas, Ahimsa – not harming other living beings? Pete

Hi Pete,

This is controversial and there is never an easy way around this. All I can suggest is that you continue with your yoga exercise and lifestyle for now (even if you are finding it difficult to give up meat eating). Indeed as time progresses the natural inclination of the body and mind to eat meat will decline as you move deeper into your practice. There are many people including yoga teachers that eat meat and practise yoga who are not aspiring to enlightenment -but are choosing to practise to maintain their health and fitness for many other reasons. Don’t worry too much -just be. It’s better to do some yoga and be a meat eater than do none at all.
