In today’s pandemic times, it is high time we start looking inside our lifestyle and bring a massive shift from a toxic routine that we unconsciously fall prey to, to a more positive, rejuvenating drill. While the world is still figuring out how to combat the coronovirus disease, it is necessary that we start working on building our immunity and work on our inner healing.
Pune based Yoga expert Diya Singh Shekhawat has been practicing and teaching Yoga for a while now. In an exclusive interview with Indiabakar, Diya said, ‘I have been doing yoga from past eight years now. Honestly, I was never into Yoga or fitness but it has truly changed my life. Post-marriage, when I planned to conceive, I faced a lot of complications. I suffered from two miscarriages and only after my 3rd attempt, which was also a roller-coaster ride, by God’s grace I am blessed with a son now. But, I had to undergo a lot of health issues post-delivery as well like placenta previa , PCOD and diabetes. It was only through, that my life completely changed. It helped me clear all mental blocks about fitness and mindfulness. Today, when I look back I feel that I have come a long way and I feel happier and healthier, which is what I wish for all.’
Due to Covid-19 situation, Diya has been conducting online Yoga classes for women, in which she teaches postures that are best suited for individuals as per their body type and health requirements along with Pranayama and meditation.
