Why and How I started my Yoga Journey?

Before enrolling yourself to the course of  200 hour yoga teacher training in Rishikesh – India, I would like to share a brief of “why and how” I started my yoga journey.

Dear Readers, My yoga journey started at the point in my life when I was questioning the purpose of living. I was not happy and my poor health caused me a deep sense of dissatisfaction in life. I asked myself, “Why am I alive?”, “Why are we born?”, “What is the purpose of life?”, “Is pain a part of life and do we all have to go through pain?”, “Can I be forever happy?”

To seek answers, I turned to India’s oldest yoga institute known as “Kaivalya dhama”, a school where scientific learning is being taught. I gradually learned that the practice of yoga is basically all about living life with enhanced awareness, which allows me to live in the present.

To me, yoga also gives inner strength to be calm with a feeling of satisfaction towards every aspect of life. It keeps me healthy and it helps to stop the unnecessary inner chatter, which otherwise goes on without our control; this is the ultimate cause of stress and further stress related disorders.

So later on i enroll my self for 200 hour yoga teacher training course in India to become a perfect yoga teacher then i started teaching yoga since 2001, because it basically gives more meaning in life, rather than just living with no aim. When I see relaxed and happy faces after each class, when I see people expressing their inner feelings how yoga has changed their lives, it just gives me a feeling of inner satisfaction. After having taught over 4000 students, I truly can say, yoga teaching is soul satisfying.

As a yoga practitioner for over 18 years, my message is very simple: “Life is not all about doing extra ordinary things, it’s rather doing simple things, but extraordinary well. Yoga is something that everyone can do, and we shouldn’t make yoga complicated so that it can reach millions of people; to those who are seeking the true path/happiness in their life”.
