Women Fitness’ President Namita Nayyar recently had the most wonderful time chatting with Kino MacGregor on why she loves doing yoga and wishes to spread it all over the globe.
You are one of the youngest certified yoga teachers of Ashtanga yoga, what motivated you towards learning yoga?
I started yoga over 20 years ago out of a sincere desire to live a more peaceful life.
How has yoga impacted your life? Tell us 5 changes yoga brought in your daily life?
Yoga has made me a more kind, more loving, more patient and a more humble person. My commitment to practice six days a week has changed everything, from my choices in diet (I’m vegan), to what time I go to bed (earlier than I used to!), to other habits of personal consumption. I am much more conscious of the impact that I make on both my immediate space and the world. The yoga practice has also opened the doors of travel to me. I have traveled nearly 1 million miles in service of yoga!
Having 18 years of experience in Vipassana Meditation, Share how one can benefit from meditation?
Meditation is a the single-most important practice for my mental and emotional balance. I sit for my meditation practice every day, with no days off. My practice is somewhere between five to thirty minutes twice a day. Like a daily ritual of mental health meditation is my key to remaining calm and peaceful amidst the inevitable ups and downs of life.
