These days, with the millions of different diets, theories, and range of nutritional advice being dispensed, eating healthy seems to be more confusing than ever! What sort of diet is best to follow? The Mediterranean Diet for its cardiovascular benefits. Or maybe the Paleo Diet for it's focus on fast fat loss and stabilizing blood sugar by cutting out most carbs. Or perhaps (and this can be big in the yoga world) either the Vegan Diet, which cuts out all animal products altogether and of course focuses on whole grains and plenty of vegetables and fruit or the Raw Food Diet where most of the food you eat is either uncooked or cooked to no higher than 40 degrees to preserve the active enzymes within the foods. No doubt, whichever diet you follow, there will also be mountains of research to back up the claims about why this particular way of eating is so beneficial.
And of course, besides the different diets, there are now also plenty of food culprits to be wary...
So, when I decided that I need to create a Facebook page and a website to launch my yoga and nutrition services I decided that I didn't want to call it Tal Zalel Yoga...or Tal Zalel Yoga and Nutrition. I wanted a different name for my for several reasons:
First, so many teachers I know name their pages or the websites ......... ........... yoga. I wanted to be slightly different. Second, my name, Tal Zalel, well...you have to admit it's not you're typical name, and because of that I thought I wanted something that might capture people's attention a little more. Finally, I wanted a name that would really be at the heart of what I believe in, in life in general, with what I've decided to do with my own life, and with what I would like to support others in.
So, after coming up with various potential names, including a few that unbeknownst to me at the time were already taken up by a few famous yogis, I decided on Embrace Your Edge.
