Yoga is a Gift !

This is a familiar statement you might come across; YOGA is a gift , it transforms my life and relives my soul!!

I took up yoga because i needed. i took it as a therapeutic regimen for my complaints - the lower back and i need to regain freedom for my stiff body.

I was dying for a better suppleness to bend forward for a 28 aged , that i was supposed to do without much effort; but it was hopeless.

Eventually , it did miracle to me, i felt alive with my body again. Yoga is truly a precious gift that you could keep throughout the lifetime. There is no expire date ; its timeless properties you cold enjoy always regardless your ages; palatable ASANAS surely keep your body young & supple and the healing pranayama brings joy & balance to the mind.

I am in earnest to encourage everyone , who does YOGA and try to appreciate its therapeutic quality rather than getting oneself caught up in the pursuit of ' a perfect form of Asana'.

From an ex interior Designer to a full time instructor now , for some people might think that it was a big shift,but i enjoy both; and i find an analogy between both ; sketching on a drawing board and stretching on the mat.

Fulfilling a client's ideal living or / commercial space is through a skillful spatial planning; making smart choices what to disregard what is useless ; and how to maximize all functions within a limited space; when on a mat , executing in a pose , you should be more sensitive with your physical limit and you should also take a nice and slow approach to work within your own ability , without force.

And it was quite a challenging and time-consuming process to put all elements and pieces ( like furniture , lights , furnishing touch & color coordination ) of design approach together; This is so much alike you are bringing your full awareness and taking time to setup a skillful and detailed alignment for a pose and to unite all parts , joints , muscle groups work together.

Over a period of time of constant mindful , diligent practice , a joyful day would come that you could celebrate your efforts on your mat,( besides health ) you finally achieve a pose that at first you find it is impossible to do . The same feeling that i had had fulfilled my client's needs.

Do mindset that statement and bring actions into that mindset, and you could ensure a lifetime quality of wellness and Happiness!!!
