Meet Shreya @theeraoftalent sharing her #yogasavedmylife story with us. These are her words 💚

"At 15 I was so shy & lacking confidence, I started secretly practicing yoga from a book, in my bedroom before school


I was a girl who would be very happy sometimes & sometimes very sad for even the smallest reasons. I was a a shy person & could not open up much or share. But this was only the outer Shreya

.

The “SHREYA” inside me was the one who dreams big.  She always knew that life is never going to be easy & to fulfil these big dreams you need to open up & be confident enough. No matter what is your dream and who are you , you are not less than someone else. Don’t let the people around you affect your confidence. This was the 'unconfident Shreya'

.

Also I always wanted to be fit & understood that being physically & mentally fit is the way to remain healthy.  So I started learning yoga at 15 from my school PT book. I used to wake up early & start practicing in secret. But I never shared this with anyone. Not even my family that I love doing yoga & dance as I was not so confident about myself

.

.  I started meditating & there came a slow change in me. I always had a faith in spirituality. I connected with myself & started feeling confident about myself. This didn't happen overnight, it wasn't easy. It took almost 2 years for me to really speak out loud & feel comfortable about who I am. I started to share my interests with people

.

.

Yoga increased my concentration levels & I started getting excellent grades in my last two years of my schooling

.

Now it is this “SHREYA” who is having confidenc

e & shows the world what she is & what she does when she says I  do “YOGA”

.

.

Now this is the Shreya who is the one who will fight back if some tries to shake her self-confidence. I am achieving emotional balance & still progressing. Yoga is my life 🙏

.

My story isn't that dramatic, but it made a big difference to me. It changed my life. Happy six years of yoga & counting"🙏 Shreya Panjwani
