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
Now go, Slay! 📸: @babakomdev

BIG NEWS!

Hello my darlings!
I known it's rather late in the day to be posting this but I JUST HAD TO DO THIS!
(please bare with me, this is going to be a long post)
Most of you know I have been working on my YouTube channel, you may also know from my online rants of all the issues, obstacles and breakdowns I have experienced while doing so! Honestly, I'd almost given up on the plan and it's only thanks to a few really special, wonderful and super supportive friends that I kept at it and decided to do this!
When I woke up this morning I wanted to release my first video but things didn't go as planned, which is when I decided to turn things around for myself and switched my BOMZILLA mode on! I refused to let anything dampen my resolve and here we are!!!!!
My channel is LIVE and the video has been uploaded.
This is my very first video, it's the channel trailer, am no expert at all this and it has taken a lot of effort and time to make this but it's been made with alot of honest hear, soul and love! Am putting myself out there truly for the first time by sharing this journey with all you wonderful souls and I just hope you take something positive from it.
Feeling very emotional right now!!! So am just going to leave the link here:

What do you see in her?
Maybe skinny, maybe pretty.
Maybe too much skin, maybe sexy.
The perfection you see is not that of a body,
This is the perfection of an intention.
Solid and committed,
Constant and uninterrupted.
The kind that gives more than it takes,
The kind that teaches you to live.
It's seconds, minutes and hours of efforts, doubts, wreckage, recovery, love, pain and care.
It's home to metaphors,
examples, lessons and wisdom deep.
It's worth the awe,
Because
It's real and raw!
That is the kind of perfection, in attitude and intent I strive for!
Did you see that when you looked at her?

For the stunning women on my TL who are sharing their stories and are being judged, called out for being who they are! 'They' don't get it, its not easy putting yourself out there. You will constantly be misjudged. 'They' will keep missing the point but to hell with 'them'! They are just a few. There are so many more who love you and need you! So You be you! More power to you xx

Recovery from any injury is tough, especially for someone who loves working out. I guess depression hits you harder when you realise that recovery sometimes isn't a 100% and whether or not you do take proper rest you may possibly never do THAT thing you love and could do before the injury!
At such times I personally, switch off! Switch off my brain so it doesn't do more damage with thoughts that affect my mood and energy!
I switch off so that I don't experience anymore emotional trauma while my body is already going through so much physically....I switch off my brain and switch on my mind! The mind is a powerful source of conscious energy that is constantly altering a possible reality! What you focus on, you create for yourself. The point am trying to make is, no matter how tough the circumstances, you have the power to make it better for yourself.
You have the tool and the means to create what you want. So now that you know this, like me and/or have been re-reminded of this...Go do just that!
I am creating my perfect health today and choosing to have fun while I do so!!! Bomzilla doing yoga on Sunday like a boss! 📷: @babakomdev (Nikon D5100)

When I decided to start running, I had no idea how much I'd actually be able to do even if I set goals for myself.
When you begin something new your mind will constantly set limits, create obstacles, make excuses and create doubts that hold you back. Fear of the unknown gets to all of us!
I faced that too, internally and externally! Still do!
I'm constantly told to not push my body, to take it easy...but if I don't leap, if I don't jump, run, sweat, ache, fall, break, bleed, how will I ever know I can survive it all?
As a dancer I've learnt to always listen to my body and believe in it! There comes a time when you need to silence the noice and just move. Move like nothing else matters. So I did just that! I shut the world out and I ran! With less than a month's training I achieved 10kms, it's one thing to set a goal and aspire to achieve it, it's quite another to actually do it!
Even though am injured right now, it's not the end. My body was made to survive!
So to any and everyone who loves sports, dancing, running but is injured right now, heal, rest and believe in yourself...believe and leap!
