Namaskaram

Namaskarasana is very specially helpful for women preparing for birth. It is also thought to improve both balance and concentration.

Namaskarasana is believed to stimulate the root (muladhara) chakra at the base of the spine, which can help the yogi to feel more grounded.

How to back bend in Namaskaram:

• Stand straight with both legs shoulder width apart

• Join hands and begin to bend backward slowly

• After reaching a limit where your back allows, hold the position

• Take a few breaths in the position

• Then slowly come back to the standing position

Cherishing little moments!

In the course of making our children ‘super children’, have we forgotten to give them their Side time or we are simply running in the race of ‘Focus on your career’ marathon???

You know there are series of tasks a child will do but only when he is capable to, and not when we want them to do. Or maybe sometimes they might do the task when we consistently force them to do but not with that happiness or zeal with which they’ll do the stuff they really love to do. At early stage children are needed to be loved and embraced and not mended. Beginners need more of side time- playful times, leisure times, feeling of love, trust and care. This is the right time to create a feeling of trust in the relationship and not pressuring them for the ‘so called career’ which will thereafter create a distant gap in your relation. And once this gap is amidst you and your child it will become very difficult to bridge the gap. So begin with the playfulness; the actual meaning of childhood and not the pressure of future.

Let’s not spoil the present of our children, let’s not over burden them with the extra weights of OUR dreams that we have seen for them and instead let them dream themselves and built a beautiful future. 😊

Amidst Nature

Nature is the best place to practice *YOGA* and specially my favourite amidst. It is so enchanting to go out in open, so close to the nature. I belong from the city of lakes ‘UDAIPUR’ also known as the ‘Venice of East’ is an extra blessing to me being a Yogini. It feels so awakening and stilling in the mind to hear soft chirpings of the morning birds, to look around the beautiful ‘Aravali Hills’ , to feel the cool breeze at the dawn. Every single breath inhaled is a kind of natural meditation you’re going through. All the hustle bustles going on the mind settles at the glace of the nature. It is like a no medicine therapy with full proof results and no side effects.

Special note to the reader: Hey beautiful soul you must try the nature once. Who knows what you feel out of it.

Side Bending!!!

I was walking out of my college library and somebody jut asked that do I write yoga blogs. I said yes, I do ; she said they are cute “ache likhti ho”!

‘Thank you’ I said.

That small compliment made me feel like to write more often and probably it will improve my skills in writing blogs. I prefer writing simple, short and to the point blogs. It directly reaches out to the reader. Anyways I am glad somebody reads my short and sweet stuff.

And here’s another glimpse of my yoga poses. I took these when I was coming back from UBESHWAR (a beautiful place where there is lord Shiva’s temple). On the way back I saw a partially made home out of stones. It was on a small hill, was green and pretty all around so I thought of grabbing the opportunity and clicked some. So here’s one more from that day.

Experience!

Spent the whole day volunteering for the Art of living Happiness workshop. It like being in bliss for each and every second. A YOGI just doing yogasanas is incomplete without pranayama, meditation and sadhna.

All the other halves in a yogi’s life which I missed is given to me by my Guru’s grace 😇

And not just one have got many beautiful teacher and guides on this path of mine who have always given me endless learnings, experiences and opportunities.

Here’s my heart fed gratitude to the 4 pillars of my life:

My mother, my father and my two yoga gurus.
