Yoga – A companion for life !

Shikha

Posted on Jun 29, 2020 #yoga

Having seen a loved one go through a terminal illness in my family, I, very early in my life, realized the importance of maintaining good health for living a happy and fuller life.

I suffered from gastric and hormonal related problems for a very long time and taking allopathic medicines only helped in temporarily relieving the symptoms. My demanding corporate job as a marketing professional also added to the mental stress and kept me feeling on the edge most of the time.

To address these issues from their root level, I started to research about natural and sustainable ways of improving my health by reading and talking to people going through similar challenges. As cliched and commonsensical it may sound, I discovered that making changes in my diet and incorporating a workout routine in my lifestyle was what I needed to combat these health issues.

Going to the gym never appealed to me and hence I decided to give yoga practice a try. What intrigued me about Yoga was its ancient origin and ability to impact by targeting the root cause of the problem and somewhere I knew, intuitively, that this is the right form of practice which will gel with my overall temperament.

I started practising it daily for one hour with the help of a Yoga instructor along with some dietary changes and within 7-8 months, I started to feel its impact on both physical and mental well-being. The flexibility of my body increased making me feel lighter most of the time and I experienced a significant improvement in digestive health. My anxiety levels came down enabling me to stay more grounded, present and connected with myself.

It's been 6 years since I brought Yoga into my life and I cannot emphasize enough on its power to heal you from the core. Last year, organically, I got a strong urge to deepen my understanding of yoga philosophy and developed an inclination to share my knowledge and experience of yoga practice with other people. I figured that to fulfil this desire of helping other people discover the benefits of yoga more systematically, I needed to learn the teaching techniques, the symbolism of the asanas and their effects at the mental and spiritual levels. Hence, I enrolled myself in a super intense teacher training course offered by an internationally recognized and yoga alliance certified Yoga Centre. Spending time at the centre opened a whole new dimension into the world of Yoga for me and my connection with the practice became stronger and deeper,

Yoga will always mean different things to different people. For me, it has become a way of life and much more than just a set of physical postures. As a teacher, I believe in learning together with my students and structure my class depending on the needs and goals they are looking to address. I would be very happy to be a part of your yoga journey 😊
