“Sometimes you have moved so much that it takes a while to understand when that happened; the very first experience of Yoga (Asanas, now that I can differentiate Yoga is not just Asana practice) was in Bangalore in a form called Artistic Yoga. Loved it, as I was able to do many of the things asked by the instructor. Before Yoga I tried free flow dance/aerobics and the likes but this experience was more interesting for me.” Rubina has an MBA with a Marketing specialization and worked in Integrated Marketing Communication. Work has always been very enriching for her although this realization was only after she started practicing Yoga. Getting to combine Yoga (practice/teaching) with her academic qualifications and work experience was like a combo delight for her as she has worked at a1000yoga for more than two years handling Marketing and Communications. Rubina practiced Yoga on and off since 2006 but seriously started learning in 2011 and has been teaching since 2013. She loves the Hata style and also imbibes a few of the therapy elements (learnt from self experience of severe back and shoulder condition) depending on the practitioner’s needs. For her a practice session is something that can flow with ease, from posture to posture with breath, to bring awareness of your whole existence. Rubina likes gardening and obsessively cleaning her home, reading and spreading the joy of Yoga.
“Yoga for me is a journey towards FREEDOM. Freedom from anything that is stopping me from realizing my potential. Yoga is a tool for me to be at peace with the flow of life.”
