Do YOGA Everyday! #yogadaycelebration

Take Care Of Your Body

It’s The Only Place You have to Live!!

~ Jim Rohn

I believe the same too. A healthy mind lives inside the healthy body only. Now the question is how to live a healthy life??

  1. Eat vegetables daily and avoid junk foods
  2. Drink Plenty of Water
  3. Avoid late night parties to maintain a disciplined life
  4. Say No to alcohol and quit smoking
  5. Do YOGA every day

Yoga Practice #yogaday

There was a time when I couldn’t think a day without fast foods. There were no strict rules in my life and I had no time for exercise and meditation. I took a long time to convince myself that I need a better life.

I think now you guys know that I have special love for Bollywood. I love to check the celebrity feeds on Instagram. I know they are the diva but to maintain the perfect body shape needs a hell lot of hard work. They do exercise daily, starting from Bipasha Basu to Alia Bhatt everyone is health conscious.

Even Shilpa Shetty is my biggest inspiration. Aishwarya, Kareena all they have gained weight post-delivery but then again they have done exercise to maintain the shape.

They all are my inspiration. I have started doing yoga every day in the morning. I have bought a yoga mat recently (this was a try for self-motivation) and I am doing yoga every day now. Sometimes I go to my terrace also to breathe some fresh air.

I think we should start with light yoga and do easy ‘Asanas’ first. As a beginner, you can do Tadasana, Vrikshasana, Adho Mukho Svanasana, Kursiasana, Sukhasna etc.

We all know that 21st June is International Yoga Day and it is our responsibility to make people more aware of Yoga and its benefits. Yoga makes your body fit, releases stress, body pain etc and gifts you a beautiful soul too.

I have started doing Yoga recently and I am a beginner as well. I have tried few simple ‘Asanas’ that you can easily start with.

  1. Body Stretching: First do warm-ups. Run in a horse step movements for 2 minutes then stretch your body at left and right side. Move your head and shoulder clockwise – anticlockwise.

  1. Feet Touch: Stretch your body and touch feet on both sides.

Asanas by Sayeridiary

  1. Sukhasna: Sit crossed legs on the mat, close your eyes, make yourself comfortable and breathe gently.

  1. Gomukhasana: Sit straight on the ground and extend legs in front of you. Now bend your left leg and place it under your right buttock. Fold your right leg and place it over your left thigh. Place both your knees close together. Place one hand on the back and try to touch the finger with another hand. Hold the fingers for 10-30 seconds initially. I couldn’t hold for 20 seconds at least. Keep breathing slowly. This asana has huge benefits.

  1. Ustrasana: Do this asana in empty stomach always. Kneeling on the mat and place your hands on the hips. Gently arch your back and slide the palms over your feet and straighten your arms. Keep neck in neutral position and hold this position for 30 – 60 seconds. Again it’s not easy really 🙁

  1. Vriksasana: First stand on your mat and drop arms to both sides of your body. Then place the right foot on the high up of left thigh. Look straight or you can close your eyes, take deep breathe and raise your hands over the head to make the ‘namaskar’ mudra. Doing this asana on the beach side is my dream so I asked my hubby to use his skill so that I can feel the virtual pleasure. 😉 (Check out my cover pic)

Disclaimer: I am a beginner only and I have tried these asanas at my own risk. Please consult a yoga expert before doing any of these asanas.
