Let's Connect

What does yoga mean to you? What part of the practice do you connect most with?

Yoga is love. I cant imagine my day and my life without it. Yoga is that doze of love that keeps me going. Aside from fitness, yoga gives me discipline and inner peace. Pranayama and Kriyas are what I connect with the most in my yoga practice. I generally start my day with the Kriyas and Pranayama.

How did your yoga journey start?

Fortunately, my yoga journey started at a very early age. Yoga came to me when I needed it the most. Yoga changed my life completely by transforming me from a confused and sensitive teenager to a disciplined yoga practitioner and teacher. Yoga showed me the path to these positive changes. I went for my very first yoga class when I was seventeen and I instantly connected with the practice. After practicing for about 4 years, I decided to make the transition to become a yoga teacher. I enrolled for my yoga certifications and followed that up with a diploma in the subject.

How do you practice yoga off the mat?

I personally think that yoga is not limited to that one hour of practice on the mat but it is what you do with the other 23 hours in the day. I try to practice the four immeasurable virtues of yoga, namely, Maîtri (friendliness), Karuna (compassion), Mudita (sympathy) and Upeksha (equanimity). Apart from this, I follow a satvic diet which immensely helps with my practice.

What are your greatest passions in life besides yoga?

Dancing and traveling are my greatest passions apart from yoga. I am the happiest when I’m dancing. I believe it is the most amazing art form. It makes me feel alive and free. I try to travel at every opportunity I get. I believe travelling is one of the best ways to attain knowledge and connect with different cultures.

What’s something most people don’t know about you? Maybe a hidden talent?

I am a Reiki Master Practitioner. I got into healing along with yoga and now I have healing hands ;). I am also a tarot card reader and I can maybe read your future. I also dabbled in theater acting early on. I tried Ensemble Theater and Mime.
