FOOD YOGA – Nourishing Body, Mind & Soul
If I may take this opportunity to let you know that I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your “Food Yoga” book. I have since made significant changes to my whole approach with food and thank you so much for writing your book. I work in the health field in Darwin and work closely with our indigenous Australians and since reading your book I feel that I have been enabled better to talk to our people the importance with connection of food which is related to our whole being and our earth and our land which I believe has been so forgotten about. Thank you!
The book is fantastic! I cannot believe how much you packed into that number of pages....everything from your personal story to various spiritual paths to USDA organics myth to Monsanto and more....I think this book will be a hit.
I have just finished reading your book and could not put it down ! Refreshing to see such a fresh approach to health and nutrition combined magically with food energetics and spirituality.I highly recommend Paul's book to anyone who is serious about developing their connection with their food, mother earth and the higher self.One great read. Much love.
Food Yoga” is one of the most interesting and beneficial books I have ever read. Full of fascinating facts, such as the Sacred Geometry of Whole foods, the story of an Indian man who survives on Sun Gazing alone, Laughter Yoga etc. It has helped me and my family tremendously in daily lifestyle habits, being selective with the food and water we consume, incorporating as much fresh & locally grown fruit and vegetables, and eliminating unbeneficial ingredients from our diet.
“Food Yoga” is a unique book, because it does not only concentrate on what to consume for optimal health, but makes that important realisation that food has the power to change our thoughts, feelings and our hearts. Above all food is a gift, and as such we should always respect it and give thanks and offerings to the Creator
FOOD YOGA is a thorough presentation of eating as a yogic science. Paul Rodney Turner deliciously elucidates the politics and nutritional esoterica of food, along with its underlying spiritual dimensions. The book is almost edible in its value and would be a tasteful addition to anyone’s library. A must read!

Thanks for your book and the food at Bluesfest! I am into the power of food, how what we consume is closely connected to our being as a whole and also being conscious and grateful for all the elements involved in bringing food to my plate.. so yes, i am enjoying reading ur book. big up!
With the high-geared pace of living in a globalised-society, information, money, and transport move ever faster with each increasingly frequent technological advance. We seem ever intent on fast… fast connections, fast loans, fast cars, and fast food. Yet is fast best? Particularly, when it comes to the essential, primal ingredient of health and life – food. Priya Vrata’s “FOOD YOGA” provides a moment of rest to catch our breath, reflect, and gain clarity. His extensive knowledge drawn from both traditional and scientific sources provides insights into the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual nurturing provided when food is engaged with consciously, respectfully and spiritually…as Yoga.
FOOD YOGA is an eye opener and very educational for the public in general. It is well researched and provides the reader with a lot of insights into the art of healthy eating. I recommend this book for everyone to read and I congratulate Priya Vrata (Paul Rodney Turner).

Incredible! I've been taking it with me everywhere. I'm in the middle of many exams and assignments at the moment but its also helping with that which is very convienient! It's really motivated me to be offering all things to the divine spirit first now, instead of just when i think to do it.
This is the kind of book you want anyone you love or care about to read and benefit from. Beautifully written from the heart with such truth and wisdom. Knowledge I enjoy teaching my son and one day he can teach his kids – like a gift that keeps on giving. Ancient wisdom presented in a practical way that anyone can take something from this book and will feel a sense of empowerment and motivation that you can live a healthy more fulfilled life. The recipes are fantastic for kids
especially if you have fussy eaters like I do. Brilliant!
If you are wondering what to eat, how to eat it, and when, get this book! It is unlike typical "diet" or "weight loss" books on the market. Food Yoga teaches us why focusing on food alone doesn't work, and eloquently outlines a lifestyle that encourages vibrant living and connection to others and the world around us. Food Yoga heals damaged relationships with food, in an easy-to-read, often lyrical fashion, that encourages deeper, permanent life changes, resulting not just in peaceful eating, but more abundance, love, and joy! It invites us to relax, and feel grateful and present each time we sit down to eat, and to say goodbye to mainstream dietary madness once and for all, giving specific instructions every step of the way. You will leave with a deep sense of knowing that only a book couched in ancient wisdom could offer. It has not only inspired gentleness in my life, but its wisdom heals the lives of my clients every day. Whether you practice yoga or not, whether you are a raw foodist or not, if you eat food, it is an essential read. You won't regret it.

I just finished reading your book! I loved, loved, loved it. Also, this is the first time that I actually read a book on the computer and since I have a nice comfy laptop it was great. I was even able to highlight passages and quotes that I plan to integrate in a presentation that I am doing next month for a Unitarian Universalist congregation. Anyway, back to your book. First of all, I think that you are a great writer. You write in a clear manner. I did not get lost or drift away at any time. I don't have a lot of experience reading books on this subject (perhaps because the number of such books are limited?) but one book that I did "try" to read well, the fact that I even use the word "try"...I tried but couldn't get through it. I picked up a lot in your book that I will integrate into my own life.
"Finally - the book that tells the whole story about this thing we do three times a day: eat. FOOD YOGA shares in delicious prose both the spiritual and physical relevance of food in our lives, and how we can use it to heal ourselves and our planet. 'Should be must-read for anybody who's ever held a fork." - Victoria Moran, author of MAIN STREET VEGAN, Creating a Charmed Life and The Love-Powered Diet

Attended a wonderful Food yoga workshop today very inspired & feeling blessed to have met Paul a very generous & wise humble man in every way & the raw food desserts & meals were truly delish. I really loved the guest speaker today & connecting with a wonderful community of people deep gratitude to Paul & all his wonderful organizers & helpers a very healing nurturing & inspiring experience ♥
Thank you so much for the Food Yoga demonstration on Sunday at Witchie Woo – Bribie Island Queensland. It was an magical day and the food that you made with only a blender was amazing. It really makes you think about what you do put into your body and how we live in a world where we are conditioned as per our childhood’s as to what and how food is cooked and eaten. The Sunflower Seed Pate was delicious and the Smoothies whether many types of blends were incredible in their taste and the Cheesecake was awesome.
Thank you again for your inspiration to make one really think about what we do to our bodies and also give the confidence to change one’s own habits.
What an absolutely wonderful and enlightening day Sunday was for me and you were such a gracious host and the girls did a wonderful job. Yogi Priya was truly wonderful and opened up a new world of all sorts of things for me I felt truly blessed that I was shown so many things, and the tastes, gee whiz they were just superb, and Priya did the most fantastic display for us all, what a brilliant shining Soul he is. Thank you, thank you.
