Podcast 252: Holly Skodis on Choosing Vegan to Honor Ahimsa

By in Podcast

There are so many people in this world making powerful and positive impacts, and today we get to share the mic with one of those gorgeous beings.

Holly Skodis is a yogi who has studied the ancient science of yoga for the past two decades, a practice for living that typically begins on the mat but through repetitive practice has the power to transform the lives of its practitioners.

This is true for our story; as most of you know, YogiTriathlete was born during one of my quiet practices, and from what I know of Holly’s story, this type of intuitive directive rings true for her as well.

Holly is a yoga instructor, certified vegan lifestyle coach and educator, podcast host, and Yoga founder of Yoga is Vegan, a project focused on inspiring yogis to go vegan. This project started with a collection of articles from vegan yoga teachers and students sharing their perspectives on why Yoga is Vegan. Its latest evolution comes into form as a fundamental component of the upcoming Yoga Goes Vegan one-day virtual retreat on March 20th, which has been declared “meat out day” since 1976.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • weekly 24-hour water fasting
  • 16/8 intermittent fast
  • utilizing the fast to be a better animal advocate
  • the pure properties of a sattvic diet
  • journey to yoga and eating vegan
  • embracing ahimsa and letting go of dairy
  • burning up generational cycles
  • understanding the nuances of food
  • Yoga Goes Vegan, a one-day virtual retreat on 3/20/21
