Yoga Principle #5: Be Clean

 

Take care of yourself, body and mind. Take care of your surroundings, community, and earth.

 

 

Avoid: littering, “dumping” on others, filthiness, substance abuse, junk food, swearing/cussing

 

 

Practice: keeping oneself and one’s surroundings physically clean, eating healthy foods, exercising, cleaning up the earth, being responsible in action and words, being respectful of yourself and others, using good manners

 

 

Examples: Brush your teeth at least twice a day. “Just say no” to drugs and alcohol. Eat nutritious, 

 

whole foods and get lots of exercise. Choose to recycle. Avoid using foul language.
