Practicing Yoga and Meditation Heals The Mind

Kriti

Posted on Jul 17, 2019 therapy

My journey to be a yoga teacher was completely unplanned. I was studying music and working as a photographer when my health started to deteriorate. I wasn’t able to keep up with my hectic schedule anymore. Constant antibiotics that the doctors would give me actually made my health worse and lowered my immunity. This led to me becoming depressed.

I could hardly get out of the house. I reached a stage where I would do anything to fix my body.

I started researching ways to heal myself and came across a meditation course and joined yoga classes. During my journey, I realized that all the physical symptoms I felt were just a manifestation of my anxieties and insecurities.

My health became better with regular practice and Ayurveda. Once I figured this out I wanted to help people, heal people and let them know there is an alternative way where one isn’t dependent on medication - which has so many side effects.

There are so many people who go through what I went through and I wanted to let them all know - there is another way.

During one of my meditation classes, a friend came up to me and said, “you have been practicing yoga for so long and are good at it. Why don’t you do a teachers training?” And somehow I ended up at a Teacher Training Certificate program, then to a course in Reiki and then to a training in Ayurveda!

My teachings started focusing on keeping a balanced mental health to keep the body healthy. The deeper I get into the practice and teaching, I have learned so much more on holistic living which I incorporate in what I teach. I also noticed that my voice has become better; my creativity has enhanced. Things that were creating blockages in my creativity and ability to sing fully started vanishing too.

I found my real singing voice.

Everyday in my practice I learn new things about how to heal different aspects of our life and being a yoga teacher for me is the best way to share this.
