It was an overwhelming experience for me to direct people into Yoga - into knowing themselves, their bodies, their breath.
It even took me a while to sink into that amazing feeling of Yoga. I can't remember exactly Yoga began to grow in me. Was it when I saw my grandfather meditate inside our family temple? Was it when my great grandmother used to tell me great Indian mythological tales? Or maybe it was when someone gave me a beautiful book on Yoga.
Born in a Hindu Brahmin family, I was blessed with a conducive environment for my practice. I was always excited to get into asanas and breathing practices. But soon I was hungry for more depth, more knowledge, more philosophy.
I completed my teaching certification about 3 years ago but the major Yoga moment for me happened a bit later. Yoga's therapeutic aspect had a profound impact on me.
I just wonder - how the practice of doing your asana and breathing mindfully, one can achieve complete health, be it the physical, mental or spiritual one? One can shine from inside. My studies in physics, chemistry and biology have helped answer those questions. My post-graduate degree in organic chemistry has helped me have a better understanding of our word but also an understanding of the universality of Yoga. My studies helped me to have a better understanding of the human body.
Yoga, as well as Art, has been a major part of my existence. My dream is to create a painting series of my understanding with Patanjali yoga sutras if Almighty allows me.
Now, helping students into asanas with full understanding and awareness is a pleasure to watch.
For me, Yoga is for everyone! Be it a teenager, a kid, old, young, a marathoner, a gym enthusiastic, a sick or a stressed one - Yoga serves EVERY individual in its unique way.
It acts on all the layers of our existence. The deeper you go, the more you have Yoga. It just happens. You can do yoga anytime, anywhere in any situation. You just have to know it.
And this is really beautiful.
