Life Positive is a body-mind-spirit magazine promoting a holistic understanding of the unity of life and self with an emphasis on personal growth. Life Positive tells us that in yogic philosophy, the mind is formed from the subtlest portion or essence of food. If the food taken is pure, it provides the proper building material for the mind, brings inner peace and encourages spiritual progress. Life Positive’s website shares recipes from the Sivananda Center’s first intercontinental cookbook, The Yoga Cookbook.
