Size “S”

An open letter to young blooming minds…..

It’s not about being 36-24-36, It’s not about fitting in S sizes, It’s definitely not about being just slim; now is the time to be healthy and not just slim. It is time to be strong and not just have pumped up muscles. It is time to be endured rather than just lifting weights. It is time to gain flexibility rather than just shape.

Being a yoga instructor I have only come across people who come to me and say ‘ पतला कर दीजिए’

Some people tell me you yourself are so chubby! How do you teach yoga? 🧘‍♀️

At that point of moment I realise we are running in a such a great speed but I must say in a wrong direction!

Yoga doesn’t have any set barriers which prevents you from doing it, or doesn’t ask for any eligibilities or some specific kind of form!!!!!

No books of yoga no scriptures of ours and not even the oldest yoga gurus say that you need to be SLIM to an instructor or practice yoga.

And specially today I would like all of you to know that I honestly want to break this hypothesis of people defining beauty as Slim and Tall and what not.

Like we have always studied in chemistry that some reactions have by products at the end. Weight loss is a by product of YOGA and not the ultimate goal of it.

Yoga would help you rejuvenate your lives, would work on your outer as well inner body, your mind and definitely grant you a better and a positive mind and body to reside. 😊

Let us all focus on being healthy inside out and not just our physical appearances.

In the end I would just like to say to the reader that you are a beautiful soul and from deep within my heart I pray that you have a healthy and a peaceful mind and body which definitely make life of yours a much beautiful one.

A yoga​ Guru desires nothing from you except your well-being and progress on the path! 😊

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. 😊

Effective Parenting !

When two people’s finger prints never matches, eye cornea never matches then how can we compare two completely different individuals? Every human is a unique creation of god and every unique individual is blessed with different qualities and skills.

In the blossoming age of children, as parents it’s our responsibility to make them explore themselves and figure out with what skills they are gifted with. Rather than just running in a race of making our children ‘Super Children’ and imposing on them your aspirations and your desires.

It is natural that parents want a secure future for their children but not on the cost of their mental health. Let the child not carry the load of your wishes, instead make him light by helping him realise his dreams.
