Take yoga beyond the mat and it will never leave you

Revalsar Sunday Stories - Edition #22 with thesattvicsoul

“My transformation from a shy-but-impulsive young girl to a confident, mindful woman."

My love and passion for Yoga started at the age of 12 years. Being a hard-core nature lover, I was fascinated with the different postures that are named after animals, birds and are in synchronicity with nature.

It is the beautiful philosophy of Yoga that introduces a balance and connects with our environment and our bodies. This made me embrace Yoga as a way of life. And there I was, a class 7th student attending Yoga classes every Sunday, without missing a single day!

As the first Yog Sutra of Patanjali says- अथ: योगानुशासनम्, which means Yoga is Discipline- that got instilled in me, which I intend to inculcate in the people I heal! 

As I grew older, I discovered that a lot of people around us need healing. They are emotionally, physically, professionally stuck in an environment that is too competitive. Yoga teaches us to heal ourselves and others. It is a way of life that breaks you free from an over-competitive spirit to a calmer and content you. 

With a lot of these learnings and with a passion to heal people and transform their lives, I have been working in the health and wellness industry for 14 years now. I went ahead and recently did my post-graduation in Yogic Science. 

From learning the origin of Yoga to today’s modern forms of Yoga, was indeed an insightful experience and I loved the journey.
Today, I help women of all age groups, embark on a journey of self-care, i.e., taking care of themselves nutritionally, emotionally, physically, professionally, and socially.

Yoga makes me feel complete! It made me a good listener, a compassionate healer, a dedicated wellness professional, and most importantly, a complete individual. 

After getting certified as a Holistic Health Coach, Nutritionist, Yoga Instructor and a Yogic Nutritionist, I founded 'The Sattvic Soul'- my online health coaching venture, I am living my dream of providing a holistic approach towards health and most importantly making lifestyle changes that become a way of life!

Advice for anybody who wants to follow the path of Yoga- “Take yoga beyond the mat and it will never ever leave you!”
