Yoga is Passion

My story is pretty ordinary but I have strong pillars of parents and friends who helped me through my yoga journey.

I started learning yoga at age 18, right after high school. I just wanted to learn something new. My friend told me about her yoga class and said “Just try it for 1 week. If you like it then good! If not, try something else."

Well, that “something else" never happened!

That one week became 2 yrs and then 4 years of practicing and teaching under my guru. In 2014, I finally did my first yoga teacher training in the midst of the financial crisis. During the financial crisis, I came to Pune from Chandigarh and got a sales job at an IT firm. I thought I would never teach yoga again but I think destiny had other plans. Soon, my colleagues turned into my yoga students! I was so happy to be sharing yoga with them.

Over the 4 years at the IT firm, with late night shifts and sometimes two shifts back to back, my health started giving up and even yoga was not doing much to help. I was never like that - sick and all worked up. Last year, in 2018, my father and my boyfriend both asked me “When are you going for your next yoga studies?”

I realised it was high time to get back to being myself again.

I quit my job and found another yoga teacher training. Since then, I haven't looked back. Looking after my health, mentally and physically, and the health of people around me is my prime job. I love doing that. I feel content about where I am today.Always a student for life and a teacher for now.

Something I always remember: "Santosha anuttamah sukha labhah" meaning from contentment, incomparable happiness is obtained.

And my motto, that I teach always,

"Listen to your body, respect it and appreciate it."
