My Yoga Story
It all started because I just couldn't breathe, metaphorically and at times physically.
I meet a lot of people, also I used to be that person, who have 'everything' that is typically required for a 'standard' happy life - a great education, an amazing job, a loving partner, a decent house..the likes, but still never truly felt happy, there was always something missing, which I later identified as a purpose to my existence.
Stress and anxiety induced by a fast-paced 'on-the-go' life can start to take a toll on the body as well. There was a point in time when I couldn't even sit because my lower back had just given up and that was when I was forced into Yoga by my mom. Isn't that all of us? we only start evaluating our lifestyle when living becomes difficult. But, as it turns out, Yoga meant so much more than just asanas!
If I had to use one word to define Yoga it would be 'Balance'...all ailments are disbalance between body, mind and soul, while all of health is eventually just finding your Balance.
And, whatever one might tell you about Yoga, it is essentially finding your Breath; moving with your breath, focusing on your breath, being one with your breath...now I can finally breathe...
