I started doing yoga…
When I was in school at the age of 12, but got really into it and started teaching after being trained as a Hatha Yoga Teacher in the year 2010.
Yoga is something that helps me connect with myself. I have always been into fitness, but yoga and meditation not only helps me have a healthy body, but also a clear mind and helps me be ME.
I was teaching yoga part time, while working in IT Sales. I decided to teach Yoga full time after my first child was born in 2013. I love teaching yoga and helping people connect with themselves physically, emotionally and mentally.
I love teaching prenatal yoga because…
it’s one of women’s most special phases in life. It’s not only about birthing the child but birthing yourself as a mother, and I feel myself privileged for being able to help the mothers and mother-to-be feel special, take care of their body and most importantly, connect with themselves and their bubs.
I have 2 lovely kids – my beautiful daughter is 4 and my handsome lil boy is 2.
Both my pregnancies were completely different experiences. During the first pregnancy, I went crazy with morning sickness, food aversions, strong sense of smell, going crazy about having 6 meals a day (making sure no unhealthy food at all), and using hand sanitizer every second. I ended up having a 12 hour long labour, epidural and forceps delivery.
The second pregnancy was exactly the opposite in every aspect. No morning sickness at all, not too fussy about eating (had street food in India for almost a month as I was craving for it), had no idea where the hand sanitizer was. Didn’t feel like I was pregnant till 7th month. And my lil boy was born in 20mins of labour!
But the one common thing about both my kids is that they love doing Yoga with mummy ☺
When I’m not on the mat you’ll find me…
either at the gym, running after my kids, cooking, or painting. Painting is as close to my heart as yoga.
Or with a glass of wine with my friends or hubby.
My favourite quote is…
“Grow through what you Go through.”
