Meet @Nishi4Yoga sharing her #yogasavedmylife story with us. These are her words

"I'd lost all hope, depressed & just spent my whole time crying, lonely, my dreams and the life I'd imagined, vanished


I am blessed to have been born into a spiritual family. My mother was my first teacher- she introduced me to meditation, breathing & pranayama; so Yoga has always been more than physical poses to me & my life’s purpose is to grow spiritually

.

After graduating at the age of 19, I started working at a private bank. It was tiring & the commercial  environment didn't help fulfill my spiritual journey

.

I left my job and took a break to work in something I loved: Yoga. I found a course that fit me and I started learning the art of practice which I enjoyed greatly. After securing the degree, I started teaching at popular gyms in my vicinity (North India) & gave personal sessions. Then I went to join a college run by an NGO for underprivileged girls in Chennai

.

I drew much needed contentment by teaching yoga and meditation to these poor girls

.

I also fell in love and got engaged. But various reasons led to a break up which forced me to leave the city. I went into depression & lost all hope. All I was doing was crying in a lonely space and my dreams of life vanished

.

Then one day, I got a call from a Yoga School in Rishikesh, known as the capital of yoga of the world. The school management asked me to teach yoga, Pranayama and meditation to students in their teacher training courses.  I was reluctant at first but slowly I gathered the courage to go, but I could feel the fear inside

.

Students from all over the world came to this yoga school & I interacted with everybody. They all seemed to like me which helped me regain the confidence I had lost. I am single now but yoga taught to me how to connect with my inner femininity.  This has brought patience, calmness & self love. I feel I am love now."
