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.

Balance It All

Take care of your thoughts when you're alone and take care of your words when with people!!!
And for the detoxification of both MEDITATE 😇😊

Amidst the beautiful mountains balancing was the best I could do 😄. Here's a glimpse of it.
How to do it???
Raise up your right leg and fold it. Hold it with the right leg tightly. Extend hands and legs all together slowly making balance on the left leg.

Tada you have done it 😉

Goddess pose 1

Scrawling down my Instagram feed I once saw this pose, it seemed real beautiful and I tried doing it the moment itself but could not. Slipping down to floor I realised things that may seem easy, look easy may actually be not the same. And then that is how I started figuring out poses and asanas that are immensely beautiful to look at yet quite difficult to perform.
With this I went on with regular trial of doing the Goddess pose and here I am with it. In beginning for doing the goddess pose you need to strengthen the inner thighs and the calf muscles in order to withstand the whole body weight on you toes and legs. Slowly and gradually over a period of practice you will achieve the target "Goddess pose".

If you wish to conquer the goddess in you try and do the pose. You can definitely click a picture and send it to me.

International Day Of Yoga 

Stretch it out! Stretch it out regularly to avoid tightening of your muscles. Always begin your workout with basics of warmup and stretching so that no muscle pull or rupture happens. In order to have a fluid like movement in your body you need to work a little to reach up a threshold temperature so as to attain better results. After having done with your warmup continue with your regular yogic practices. And don’t forget to stretch back again and do some cooling down exercises after you are done with your workout.

This International Yoga Day, realise that your body is your biggest wealth. So workout for your wealth, fall in love with your body regardless of your weight, size and shape.

Shwetal wishes you a happy, fit and healthy lifestyle.
