The practice and teaching of Yoga since 2007 has had a profound impact in my life. Yoga helped me sail through some really tough challenges of life, avoiding deeper scars, and Prenatal Yoga helped me a lot during pregnancy, ensuring a smooth, natural delivery of my daughter Mila. Moreover, after being diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, the daily practice of Yoga and Sarvangasana (Shoulder Stand) in particular, helped me get off the Eltroxin medicine I was taking. I developed this thyroid hormone deficiency after delivery, while working in the corporate world where I felt only 10% of me was alive and being expressed. Most importantly, the shift from a corporate lifestyle to Yoga teaching helped me realize and embrace my uniqueness and allowed me to express myself fully as I started to really enjoy what I do. For this, I am forever grateful to my husband and Spiritual Master Mohanji who encouraged me to take the plunge and leave the false comfort of an office job in 2014. With Yoga, suddenly everything made a lot of sense – my studies, life journey, my dreams and aspirations, a whole new meaning of it all flowered within me when I started teaching Yoga full-time.
The blissful expressions of my students after coming out of Yoga Nidra at the end of a Yoga session are one of the most beautiful moments of my day. Hearing testimonials of my students about headaches, sleep disorders, back pain, high blood pressure, menstrual pain and other physical ailments leaving them after they embraced the practice of Yoga gives me immense joy. I invest all my love and energy into teaching Yoga and truly consider it a privilege to be in a position to serve as an instrument of this profound ancient science in the fast-paced world we live in.
I strongly feel there has never been a time when Yogic wisdom was needed more. Our lives have become so hurried, food and lifestyle habits so unhealthy and energy changes on our planet so great, that a practice like Yoga is not only needed but vital for the inner balance, health and overall wellbeing of an individual.
Finally, while Yoga practice alone may not guarantee one’s enlightenment, it definitely provides one with a solid sattvic base for full spiritual blossoming.
I welcome you to join me on the journey of Yoga through all the insights, practical tips and heart-felt experiences shared here for the benefit of all.
