What is your first yoga memory?

I had struggled with my weight for most of my life and found exercise to be very helpful. However, when I became pregnant in 2013 there were not a lot of exercise options for a pregnant woman. So, I decided to try prenatal yoga. I still remember my first prenatal yoga class I felt so energetic and mentally relaxed! I wondered why I had never practiced yoga seriously! Today my daughter is 5.5 years old and I don’t remember a day when I missed my yoga class.

How has yoga helped you in your life?

Yoga has not only helped me be physically active but also relaxed mentally. After my pregnancy, I had a nasal deviation and my doctor recommended an operation. I was not at all mentally prepared for the operation as there was no guarantee that the operation would work. Instead of the operation, I began practicing Pranamaya. Surprisingly, after 6 months, my doctor said that the operation was no longer needed! WIth this experience, I started believing in Yoga more and spreading the benefits of yoga to others.

What was the most significant yoga moment in your life?

My most memorable Yoga moment was when one of my students told me that her life has changed due to my yoga classes. She had severe depression but after joining my yoga classes, she said she started to smile as she felt so positive and energetic after yoga. This is one of the best memories of my life as I was finally able to help people.

What keeps you practicing?

There are immense benefits and positivity which I get through yoga. I realized that through consistent practice, yoga stays with you forever - like an ornament. It makes you shine in your life.
