When Yoga became the Aim of my Life

Sakshi Jain

Posted on May 12, 2020 #recent

After suffering from TB and pneumonia for almost a year, I remember feeling desperate to get out of this miserable condition. Till this date I’d never practiced yoga, only heard it could cure and bring good health. I also thought it was about certain asanas only. I needed to do something to get out of it for once and for all so I decided to join one of the century old school, The Yoga institute to start 900 hrs of intense Hatha yoga training straight out of my sickness, and what happened next was truly the best thing that could’ve happened, the sickness turned out only to be a big best blessing in disguise. It was like through my sickness I was preparing for yoga, and through Yoga, I not only understood why I felt sick but I also completely healed myself.

Yoga for me was coming home to myself. Taking 100% responsibility for my actions, starting a tremendous love affair with myself. It has only been life-transforming for good. I never started Yoga to become a teacher, it just came naturally and now this attempt of teaching yoga is only with the intention of walking everyone home, to a safe place within ourselves, full of creativity, compassion and celebration engulfed in absolute silence, even amidst the chaos. It’s like waking up from a dream and seeing everything for the 1st time and laughing at the whole gameplay of the universe! Then Little things start bringing great joy, and the secret lies in simply being aware that you’re aware. Yoga is a journey to attuning yourself with your higher awareness. It’s about a deeper understanding of your own true nature. The beauty of this journey is going from the known the unknown, from gross to subtle, so subtle that there is no difference between you and the divine.

Yoga is not just doing asanas and finding peace of mind, these are just by-products, the ultimate aim of Yoga is "Samadhi". "Samadhi" means transcending the duality to merge with one consciousness. I invite you to take this leap of faith and jump with me to take a ride in the infinity. I invite you to take the 1st step: START.
