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! 😊

Try! You Will Succeed

Beginning with my first series of 🎉•| #yogaforbeginners |• 🎉 📌 Pigeon pose (with neck stretched out) #1

So it began when I saw a post on Instagram. A girl doing something really weird out of her body, like she could twist and turn her body anywhere and everywhere! In the starting I found it impossible and quite mad to do it but one fine day just thought of doing the madness. And then I just try n do it and I could to some extent…… Concluded as it is not that difficult as it seems to be…………. Note to the souls who are reading: Hey lovelies these are small glimpse of my life though not in series but I hope to uplift your mind; Trying it is not impossible, make an attempt without thinking about the results. Just without trying concluding that you can’t , that is real failure. And I know you don’t wanna fail 😉
