Hidee Ho, Erik!
Yogini (and former vegetarian as a result), as well as a former resident of San Fran, here.
I was quite dismayed to learn that the originators of yoga ate meat! We were never taught that. I struggled mightily with eating meat because of the spiritual (karmic) as well as ethical (again, karmic!) implications....despite my hair falling out like crazy.
I do feel Primal when doing yoga as well as dancing. Doing yoga outside is especially wonderful. No, you're not the only one who has increased strength, reduced inflammation, and increased recovery times.
