A Production Manager (for Animation and Games) by profession, there was a time in my career when I was enjoying my 12-hour daily work job being oblivious of the stress this professional growth was causing to my health. Every day involved fighting, inside me, to keep myself up and running. It caused me a panic attack that shook my health, my confidence and who I thought I was.

It was then, that I turned to Yoga as a form of self-practice trying step by step to regain my health back. Being on the mat, raised the self-confidence to believe in myself. It gave me back the feeling of being happy in small achievements than those bigger aspirations that we run day after day without realizing what it may cost us later in our lives, denying the reality that the underlying stress may cost us.

What goes inside the mind is invisible. It is therefore essential to understand and take care of our mental health. Yoga has helped me manage my stress levels and take control of my health and mind. It helped in rediscovering myself. It has given me the inner stability and physical strength to come out of my shell, be comfortable with who I am, and gain my self-confidence.

As I dove deep into years of education and practice, it changed my perspective about my thoughts and my notions. It taught me that there are no failures and each of those mistakes pave a path for a stronger self. I felt a different sense of happiness and to take this journey further I did my Yoga Teacher Training from India.

Through this journey, I realized that all we need is strength, knowledge and experience to manage the down times. We may all experience tough times, anxiety can enter our lives in any form. It could be work related, caused by an unhealthy relationship or even because of the pandemic. We can still make a difference to our physical and mental health. Give yourself a small window of time in your busy schedule to practice Yoga. Walking this path will help you come out stronger and be better prepared for any situation. Let the feeling of happiness not drain from your hearts.

Testimonials

Rosie Glicklich

(Netherlands)

I've been receiving private yoga lessons from Shikha on a weekly basis for the past two months. Practicing with Shikha has thus far been the best yoga experience I have had in the Netherlands. Each class is tailored to my specific ability level, needs, and interests. She provides frequent helpful adjustments, which have enabled me to improve my form significantly. I look forward to the classes and find them both challenging and supportive. Shikha is pleasant to work with, kind, conscientious, and patient. She takes the time to talk with me about the practice and answer any questions I have about the postures. I would recommend her to anyone with a longstanding practice or an interest to get one started.

Aruna Monga

(India)

I have been taking yoga sessions with Shikha with an aim to get physically strong and agile. She has helped me get my alignment correct every time I try different asana by working through various postures, I feel my spine has become straight and long. Every time I have a question, She gives complete details and explains the minor technicality which are most important to do the asana correctly. Her deep understanding of yoga postures is exceptional with her creative approach of taking the session to an intense level which stays in the body long after class is over. I’m always surprised at how quickly the 60 minutes fly past and how much I enjoy them. It is an amazing experience to be her student.

In the short span of time I have had the privilege of being trained by Shikha it was an amazing experience. Being new to yoga with flexibility almost none she planned the class in a way that would cater to my limitations. Within the first few classes I could feel the difference with my muscles opening up and this was only possible with her efforts. She corrected my mistakes every time, even if it was wrong a hundred times. Shikha is dedicated, skilful and understanding when it comes to yoga. Waiting to be trained again by her someday.

Mindful and productive sessions. Shikha literally takes your body further, very gently pushes you to discover its limits just to see that it doesn’t have any. I wouldn’t be able to do as much without her knowledgeable support. By saying “knowledgeable” I mean her awareness about authentic yoga traditions, knowledge of how body works and what it needs depending on its current state.
