I am not a very patient person and am stubborn as hell! So you can only imagine how difficult it was for me to not RUN while recovering from my knee injury. I’ve had countless injuries in the past and I always pushed my body through the pain. It’s caused a lot of issues in the process. So this time around, I chose to be patient and let my knee heal. Doing yoga helped a bit but mostly letting my body rest, eating more, creating a muscle and fat padding (sounds really weird but it’s true) is what’s improved my knee for sure. The 15day #MerryFitness plan has already started showing effect on my body and I can’t wait to get back to my regular #nrc runs. So am going to add morning jogs to my current routine! Shall share the breakdown with those interested (DM me please)
For those who are still in recovery, stay strong and love your body. It needs that the most to heal :)

Strength isn’t just a physical thing. It takes a strong mind,
A determined one,
A committed one,
A focused one,
Perhaps even a stubborn one,
To make the body better everyday! Ask any athlete which is more important and they’ll always say both! While it is a mutually beneficial relationship, in my personal experience a strong body doesn’t stop feeling/registering pain nor can it bare too much pain for too long sometimes but, a strong mind sure as hell can learn to accept it, confront it and eventually surpass it! Because, MIND OVER MATTER !!!
Dance & Running constantly teach me these beautiful lessons and it brings me pure joy to share them with you! We are all on this journey together whether we realise it or not! We are all each other’s sources of inspiration & motivation. So please don’t stop sharing your stories with me and I’ll keep posting mine :) happy fitness Friday!

It’s been a good 10 years since I first discovered my love for photography! My little Sony digital cam use to be such a precious gadget and I had all these ideas I wanted to shoot and no model to use! Sooooooo I decided to start posing for them myself. Dance and Theater have taught me this one amazing lesson - improvise! And that is exactly what I did! I didn’t have any resource to shoot, nor was I professionally equipped to do so but, my curiosity drove me and I kept experimenting with lights and outfits to achieve the results I wanted (That’s how modelling happened for me)
I was often asked how this curiosity was helping me do something concrete/ earn money?
Today I realise how everything in life is so deeply connected! My love for dance, fashion, photography, fitness, yoga always made me feel divided and scattered. It felt like I was changing my direction in life constantly like a lost soul. But now I realise they were slowly preparing and guiding me all along! Because now everything I love has become a part of my skill sets and has also translated into my career choices. It may have taken me a while to get here and I am still figuring things out but, the journey was worth it! Always is! .

Listen to your body! Find your mix!

I love speed, enjoy the rush I experience when I dance and run! Feeling my heart rate rise, the humdrum that runs through my body makes me experience my body differently every time!
At the same time I crave the internal stillness & silence yoga & meditation brings. Experiencing my breath slow down, relax and even the out of body flights in deep meditation!!
For the longest time I though the 2 were opposites and doing it together was a bad idea, NOW I am learning that my body is so attuned to both that holding back on any one leaves me feeling restless! My body is most relaxed and rejuvenated when I start with a dance style warmup follow it up with a run and end it with meditation!! For me personally, to feel whole and complete all I need to do is fine-tune the progression and process of each practice. My mantra in life has always been the same:- Listen to your body! Your body always knows what’s best for you. So find your mix, it is your real fix! 😉{rhyme scheme #Mondaymotivation}

Ps: this post is especially for those people who keep asking me how I plan my workouts. Hope this helps!! 📸: @babakomdev

Life is never going to be what you expect it to be. Your journey is never going to be simple or easy! Sounds morbid? Well it isn't! The road, rocky, muddy or smooth isn't the point. It is how you walk that path, how adamantly you take each step. How you pause, rest and resume that makes your journey a unique one! It is pointless to want a path like another's for they don't seek what you do, they haven't been through what you have and they aren't as ready as you are to be on this journey here and now (and vice versa) Most of us fail to realize that it is what 'we seek' that even makes a path appear in our lives. Believe it or not what comes our way is more because of 'us' than anyone else. We have all this power and not enough awareness of it. So here's your reminder & inspiration for everyday starting now, be conscious of that! Be aware and enjoy your journey! There is so much for you on this path :) open your heart to it!!!
(PS: if this confused you, read it again. I promise something will click)

Thank you my darlings for giving me the best memories to carry in my heart for the rest of my life! You have all taught me so much, given me such unconditional love. You have all become my family in such a short span of time. It amazes me how quickly all of us connected and am proud of the beautiful energy we created together!!! I had no idea I was going to find so much when all I was looking for was some peace :) that makes me feel blessed beyond words. To each of our Yoga journeys and a bond for life!!! Cheers!
Love you heaps and loads!!!

It’s a special place to be in.
Between two times,
Between two lives,
Between the gone and the going by.
Everything is the exactly as it was and will be.
The same shape, size, weight, height, day and night.
Everyone is the same and will be.
Voices, words, thoughts and energies.
A part of me in this moment is the same too with all of them and will be.
Yet I fit differently, maybe not at all.
Still a puzzle, now a shapeshifter.
No longer just a piece.

Sometimes you are on a path, walking towards something you didn’t even know you were seeking. My fitness journey began as a kid thanks to my Mom! She use to be a dancer, is a yoga teacher and I’ve been blessed to have grown up surrounded by that! In school sports happened and I fell in love with running, basketball and badminton but before I could truly realise my full potential an injury happened and I couldn’t further my progress!! But I didn’t let that get me down because I had Dance!!! Over the years as my health was tested, Yoga and pranayama always came to my rescue. Use to grumble cause Mom made me do it back then but now 😂
Over the past year a lot has changed in my life and all the things I once loved deeply have come back, rather I have come home to them! Over the past few moths especially running, dancing and yoga have merged so beautifully in my life and I finally see the bigger picture! It has inspired me to not give up, to begin again, to become better, to take this love and passion to the next level. As I do that, I want to thank all my darling teachers, friends and my parents especially, who have supported & encouraged me over the years in soooooo many ways...constantly, & unconditionally!!! It is life altering to find such a gift and I am deeply moved and humbled by it. I hope I can make all those kind souls proud in every way possible!

Yoga pose please! Yes! It makes for a wonderful picture but the pose (asāna) is really a state of mind, an attitude you internalize and live. It’s called the practice of Yoga asanas because everyday you learn something new and become a different person while doing the same thing.
Vrikshasāna - The tree pose.
I plant myself here between earth, water and sky, humbled by this knowledge that everything that changes is unreal and that which never does, is the absolute truth! I root myself in that truth!!

Cleansing, learning and healing with love, that is what I wanted to give. Yesterday as I prepped for my final exam there came a point where I just switch off my mind because all it did was make me nervous and anxious! Sure it was my final exam, sure I was under the weather and sure I was a student in that minute. But when I switched off my mind I realised I wanted nothing more than to channel positive energy and create a healing space for anyone who came for class that day. I spent time cleaning the space of all chaotic energies, rearranged the space and filled it with colours. As I arranged the mats I left love in that little space within the larger space for the body and soul that would sit there to experience my transition from a student to a teacher (in a small way, for we are all always going to be students first for the rest of our lives) for them to experience the fullness of Prana and be protected and wrapped up in that love.
This made my own heart fill up with more love, gratitude and peace. I tried to give my best to all them yesterday, hope they felt that.
(This may look like a empty classroom to you, but it’s full of grace, hope, knowledge, blessings and love for me)

It's been 2 months since I put out a teaser for my YouTube channel and I was thrilled to see that so many of you welcomed it so positively. I sincerely apologize for not following it up with any video. This post is to explain just what happened! So initially I faced many technical issues over the equipment and even loss of data! After that I just got caught up in the whole 'perfect content' trap and in spite of shooting & editing multiple videos, I posted none! I just wasn’t happy with the output. Soon the disappointment turned into disinterest! Which was followed by my injury and by then I literally couldn’t record anything given my physical state!! Now I know these sound like pathetic excuses and they were in fact blocks that I created for myself (barring the last one)
Eventually I got tired of putting things off and not posting anything so I have decided to go ahead and post whatever I have recorded so far! The quality of production, the look and feel of the video may not be the best but the point of starting this channel was to share the relevant information with all of you and keeping it real! Am going to stop obsessing over these technical matters because am just wasting time now! Also, I am off to Rishikesh for my Yoga Teacher’s training course in a day, so loads of vlogs, instastories, blog posts etc can be expected.
A big thank you to those who have been patiently following my workout updates and have inquired about the YouTube videos. I won’t let you down!!! Am going to share my story, beginner level warm up, workout and cool down videos over the next few weeks!
Thank you for the constant support! You guys inspire me and keep me motivated!

#mondaymotivation
This one is for those who can't accept the whole 'its a journey' or 'its a slow process' .
We all workout to achieve a certain kind of body, to feel a certain way. Set goals or random workout spurts, we all set high expectations of the results!! I get that! When you plateau or when you don't see the expected results, it's frustrating and it often leads to loosing motivation. In those moments, you need to remember this- YOUR body is a higher intelligence. It is a perfect machine on its own! There are times when you need to push your body hard and then there are times when you need to just STOP! it knows what it needs and if it's holding on to weight or not shedding it, if it's being stiff or fridge understand that it is trying to tell you it needs time! Now it is your job, your duty to give your body what it deserves and needs!!! So yes, be patient. It is indeed a journey and a process but understand & accept the fact that the results you want will be more effective and will last longer if you work WITH your body instead of against it! So my darlings, love your body, be kind and patient and I promise you, you will realise that you have made more progress and have healed better just by supporting your body!

#BodyPositive isn't just a concept or a modern social construct that I promote, it's something that I believe in. I am in no way ashamed to admit that it is also something I still struggle with. People often think that your body weight = confidence levels = happiness! While I agree with one of those, I DON'T with the others! Feeling good about yourself, in your body, in your skin may, to a large extend, get amplified when you consciously work on your body but it is dependent on your emotional & mental state far more. Believe me when I say this, your body is a mirror of what is happening within!! For me personally accepting my body as it is, right now and here is only one aspect of what #bodypositive stands for. It means choosing what is healthy for me - physically, mentally, emotionally and even sexually! It means respecting what I have been given and never ever taking it for granted. It means being aware of your worth! While I freely give my body to art (eg. this picture), I would never give it to someone who doesn't respect and value it! I would never abuse my body or deprive it!
It means breaking free of the social and personal stereotypes that have constricted us for far too long!
It means evolving into better versions of ourselves, everyday!These two words mean so much more than I can express through one post. It's an attitude, an outlook, a belief system. It's about the feeling and not the appearance.
Something happened with a dear friend yesterday & that triggered this thought process. I just wanted to share it with all of you. I hope each and everyone of you starts loving and respecting your bodies if you don't already! Loads of love & support to those who especially need it today!! PS: this may not make sense to some of you but there are those on my TL who needed to hear this today!

No, these aren't fancy words put up on social media for show, engagement or likes. These are my personal, positive victories. I share them because I have learnt that it's possible to do these things. One other person did the same when they shared their story at some point and I randomly came across it on one such platform, it inspired me when I read it and helped me. So I hope this #mondaymotivation post does the same for at least one other person out there 🙂

Some Mondays leave me moody! I don't feel like stepping out and I definitely don't feel like working out. On those days I stop being me, I become the first character that comes to my mind and do the fun version of things I enjoy! I hop around, dance, sing loudly and by the end of an hour I have managed a fabulous cardio session without even realising it! Keep changing things up, keep it interesting, that's how you stay motivated!
PS: I was being a moody Gollum when I was told to do a yoga aasana!!!

We are all seeking things, all the time. At every stage in our lives we have reasons, wants, dreams that demand effort and time. We grow up learning to prioritise! We make the time for things, work and even people. We spend ourselves broke of time and energy and then we start feeling frustrated, stressed, tired, depressed, overwhelmed and eventually indifferent...we want to escape, take a long holiday, go away! And we do that too, but count the days, dread the thought of going back to our lives. Why? Why make your life a problem that you want to escape? Why stretch yourself so thin to achieve 'things' when really it's the 'feeling' you crave. We all just want to be happy, free, at peace. Why can't we work as hard as we do to make our lives a balanced reflection of our inner desires and external needs? We absolutely can! When I run, practice yoga, dance, I find that with each step, breath and movement I fall into greater balance. When I do it everyday, the depth of that balance increases. Mind, body, soul, all get aligned so effortlessly. It's that easy to create balance. We just need to choose balance. Don't know where to begin? Find an activity that becomes the enabler, at such times taking up a hobby or going back to learning something helps greatly! It's the best gift you'll give yourself. Create your own balance, now that! is truly worth your time.

(It's not about the picture, it's about the message. So please read the post) A lot of times I wake up wanting to do nothing! Not move a muscle, shut the world out, talk to no one, just stay in bed and never get out. All that blaaness turns in to depression in no time and it's not because of one reason but many. So I stay there, feeling dark and alone. I listen to the saddest songs and cry, think about all the things that just aren't how I want them to be, all my failures, rejections, heartbreak...and then some random song comes on that makes me dance. I suddenly look at myself and get angry at what I am doing to myself over things that have happened in the past and I have no control over!!! That's when I yell at myself to get my ass out of bed, get into my favourite activewear and I turn the Bomzilla mode: ON!
If you go though such low times remember,
Focus on what makes you happy, hold on to what makes you whole! You are the most important person in your life and you should not expect anyone else to know your worth when you yourself can't recognise it! It won't happen all the time, but try, keep doing it till it becomes your reality! Be your own champion starting now!!
I did that today, I chose me!

(Annnnd it's back)
Where I started dancing and training more seriously, working on my flexibility was probably the most painful process I experienced. I use to see other dancers fall so effortlessly into center splits and at the time there was nothing I wanted more! When we work on our splits as dancers, we get pushed against the wall, pulled apart, sat on, pushed down and what not by our instructors to open up the hips and flatten our backs completely. I never once asked my instructor to stop even though it felt like I'd never be able to walk again if I was pushed any further, because I knew!!! all that excruciating pain, the bruising and soreness were just challenges I had to get past to get what I wanted. Wasn't easy but it was so worth it!! Now I know my body can take all that pain and my muscles are that much stronger because of it! So my darlings, here is your #mondaymotivation
