Yoga as a Way of Life

Yoga was never a "new" concept to me.

When I was a child, I saw my father practicing pranayama for his asthma. So, it was natural for me that when I suffered from an acute backache, I turned to Yoga. That was almost 15 years ago when I began practicing a few asanas to strengthen my back. I do not really remember when it became part of my life.

For me, Yoga is not just asanas or getting into a handstand but a way of life.

As I continue to work through my mind, body and breath during each practice, I see how grounded I become as an individual. After seeing positive results in physical and mental health (I can handle stress better), I decided two years ago to become a teacher to share this knowledge with people. I started with friends and family and it has been a journey since then. Even now, I continue to grow in my own practice along with my students.
