If you are one among those, who feel down or stressed out, you can try yoga for healthy and enlightened living. It boosts the self confidence in yourself.
Recently I had gone to my friend’s native place to partake in her great grandmother’s 90th birthday celebration and there I saw this lady..she had a magical twinkle in her eyes, warmth in her smile and her face was full of radiance, she looked in picture perfect health, I was looking at her dumbfounded ‘Gosh really She is 90?!!’ To clear my doubt I asked my friend once again “you said this is your great grandmother and she is 90 right?” She gave me a stern look which was the warning that one more time you ask me this question and you are dead. I can’t blame her because this was the hundredth time that i was asking her the same question!!. Actually it was not her beauty that took me by surprise it was her health, her fitness, the energy she was showcasing at this age! When i got a chance i asked her what is the secret behind her this radiant health and my friends it isn’t any medication or cosmetics , it is simply a balanced diet and YOGA!! Cool huh! She also shared with me the various benefits of yoga and the magical transformation that it will bring to our lives if practiced regularly. And as it is said that knowledge increases with sharing I would like to share with you all that i learned from her , no need to thank my friends ..The pleasure’s all mine 😀 So let’s start!
