Revalsar Sunday Stories edition 34 with @thehungryyogagirl
"Yoga and meditation has always been an integral part of my life. Both my parents have been transcendental meditation (TM) teachers in their 20s, and my father has been doing traditional yoga since a very young age, they taught me the same. My yoga journey is not a life changing story as I started practising yoga at a very young age therefore I have not known what life is without yoga.
Growing up my parents taught me a lot about yoga and life, they gave me life lessons disguised in the form of yoga sessions. They always said that yoga is not just about doing tough asanas or doing a handstand, it's a way of life. I have grown up reflecting what yoga teaches me everyday on and off the mat. Yoga teaches me that no matter how many mistakes I make I always have another chance to be better tomorrow.
Yoga brings clarity and calmness in my life and in my thoughts, and I try to use that clarity and calmness in my everyday life, in my every movement. It showed me that one can conquer every challenge in life if they believe in themselves and taking a deep breath goes a long way too.
When I moved to the UK I thought I might have some trouble continuing my yoga lifestyle but I realised that yoga already has a global reach. It did not make a difference on my schedule or lifestyle at all. Every gym/apartment has a space for people to do yoga. Everyone is very accepting of yoga here.
For everyone out there new to this world or starting their yoga journey, I would like to tell them that it's very common to set your goals revolving around nailing the tough asanas. But it is very important to understand that yoga is way more than that and to have a deeper understanding of yoga. Don't limit yourself to just practising and learning the asanas, learn all 8 limbs of yoga and how they can be incorporated in our busy modern day lives."
