YOGA ON AND OFF THE MAT

Written by Apsara Vydyula

I’ve always had a special affinity for the spiritual, and my path to being a yogi was as organic as it was incidental. My first official yoga class at age 22 lit a dormant inexplicable passion in me, and my journey acquired shape and depth from there.

I believe in the universality of yoga, across genders, age and backgrounds, and in classes, I am mindful of individual limitations and capabilities. I specialize in teaching Vinyasa Yoga and modify the practice by using props when required. I will always be a student of yoga and continue learning.

I’m a certified teacher with Yoga Alliance and World Yoga Organization. I’m blessed to have learned the Ashtanga practice directly from Mysore with Ramesh ji, a lifetime member of the Mysore Yoga Association as well as from Ravi and Sreemathy, direct disciples of guru Sri K Pattabhi Jois.

I currently live in Chennai, India where I teach at Subasheelam Dance Academy, Thiruvanmiyur, ECR.

HOW DO I CONTROL THE AMOUNT OF FOOD I EAT?

Yoga has helped me develop mindfulness, thereby making me more aware of the things I do which includes a  greater consciousness towards what and how much I eat. 

Now I am no one to decide how much and how often one should eat because everybody’s body and food requirements are different. You and only you can decide how much your body needs.

This is where practicing yoga and mindfulness come in. 

Mindlessly loading our plate and eating while working on the laptop, talking on the phone, etc. We lose track of how much we’ve had. Instead if we were to sit cross-legged (Hello better digestion), have a glass of water and then add food to the plate, mindfully- One serving of sabji, rice and dal each, and then eat with all our senses, without any distractions, simply focusing on and relishing every bite that we take, chances are that we will realize when to stop. 

SOFT YOGA 

Within yourself, there's an energy but unless you use it, it dissipates.

 

Soft yoga provides a calm, effective and gentle environment that is welcoming to all. It is often considered easier, minimalistic, less-intensive, meditative and restorative. It attempts to serve a variety of distinctive needs. To relieve stress, increase flexibility, calm the mind and strengthen the body. It's like a de-stress tonic in your otherwise busy day.
