For Luvena, a dedicated yoga teacher, every day brings a new opportunity for a new beginning.

Life is a series of beginnings
I have spent nearly all my life outside India and had only heard of yoga while growing up.

In 2008 a terrible accident left me bedridden and unable to move. Doctors had given up on me and prescribed strong medication.

I had two children, the youngest of whom was just 2 years old. Not being able to care for them and being totally dependent on somebody else left me depressed.

After three months I took matters into my own hands and began to work on myself. Such was my desire that I was on my feet in a month. But the medicine had taken a toll and I had gained a lot of weight. I was not allowed any physical activity that would help me shed the excess baggage.

That is when I discovered Artistic Yoga. In just a few months my weight began reducing, and a thyroid condition that I’d developed during pregnancy began to straighten out.

By the time we moved to India 3 years back, I’d had my third child and wanted to practise yoga again. I started with power yoga. It helped me shed those pounds, but I felt the need to teach, especially to reach out to people with back problems, to let them know that all is not lost.

And that’s when I came across a1000yoga. I loved the energy and the place resonated with me at every level. I redid my teacher training course and using my knowledge as a holistic health practitioner, I began to reach out to people in pain.

I am also working with others to create a yoga course directed at people with special needs.

Every new step, every new idea is a New Beginning. Nothing really ends, so life is a continuous series of beginnings.

Make Yoga part of Life

The principles laid out in Patanjali’s yoga sutras dating back to 500 B.C. are still very relevant today, even in our modern information world. Yoga has evolved a lot from the days of Patanjali; it has taken different forms to meet the varying needs of practitioners all along its journey. Yoga continues to accept all changes, like the ocean accepts the river, absorbs, assimilates and grows. (A distinctive feature of sanaatan dharma of India)
