Before I went vegan, I was eating plant-based for about four years. I knew about the health of a plant-based diet and I always loved animals but at that point, I thought a plant-based diet and veganism were the same. Through my yoga practice, I learned about ahimsa. Ahimsa for myself in my practice and by that ahimsa as a way of life. It’s the non-hoarding, the non-stealing, and especially the non-violence to any living being, including myself! And for me that was huge! So actually in my understanding of yoga, every Yogi should be vegan.
