Yoga is a Way of Life

Home » Blog » Yoga is a Way of Life


I discovered yoga quite accidentally. I was working with HAL in Bengaluru but had a lot of spare time on my hands.

I was keen on taking up a part time position which would keep me occupied and also create a second source of income.

Very soon I got the opportunity to work at the front desk of a yoga institute. It wasn’t exactly what I had hoped for, but I went along with it.

I always believed yoga was a very difficult form of exercise and hence, even though I was working at a yoga institute, I didn’t join classes myself. It was after more than a month, after a friend literally dragged me, that I had my first yoga class.

It was a life-changing moment, a New Beginning.

I have always been a physically active person – I’ve played sports, run, etc. – but yoga was different. I was impressed with it right from the first class and began spending time practising it outside class even.

Barely 6 months later my instructor suggested I try for teacher training. I didn’t hesitate and jumped at the opportunity.

It’s been a year since I’ve been teaching and I think this is what I had been waiting for. I have found my true calling. I find more satisfaction in teaching than I did in my earlier work. People appreciate my method of teaching and that motivates me to try even harder to get better at what I do.

Yoga has changed me not just physically, but psychologically as well. I notice an immense difference in the way I think and speak. My attitude towards others has also improved and I feel positive all the time.

Yoga has given me stability and it has become a way of life for me.

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)
