Hey, you guys!
So earlier this week I received an amazing package comprising of Healthy Snack Bars from Eat Any Time. Now, healthy snack bars are just bars that you can munch on after working out, or while commuting, or in case you missed a meal. As the main intention of such bars is to fill you up when you are hungry so that you don’t binge on any junk food. These are healthy, tasty as well as filling. Read More
This basically comprises of the last month of my Yoga course. We had to undergo a Vasantik Varg in the month of May, that is nothing but a summer class, more like an internship. Wherein we had to run a class for a whole month, we as in 3-4 teachers-to-be. I had got my centre near my house, so that was very convenient for me as I am not at all a morning person and this internship was supposed to be in the early morning hours, 6:00-7:15 AM.
We had to first generate awareness about this class, basically, gather students for the class to run. Then, we had to do everything right from forms distribution, to looking after the place, conducting classes, attending to the students, clearing doubts, giving demos, helping students attain the final position, relaxing them, conducting shudhikriyas, and what not! But all of this together has improved me a lot. When you teach, you learn. This one month has been a great learning experience for me. I am really grateful to have this amazing batch as my first class.
In this one month, I overcame my fear of public speaking, I feel more confident than ever and it feels good, in a non-ego way when people look up to you or think you are worthy enough to solve their queries. I was the youngest one in the class, but this time not as a student but teacher. All my students were older to me by 10 years minimum and yet they thought I was worthy enough to attend to them. I feel really grateful for that.
The second last class was that of sharing experiences. And this was the best class for me, by far. Students shared their experiences and it was so heartwarming to listen to them. They said such sweet things about the teachers and how they now felt like family and that they could sense the bond that has grown amongst us now. They said that the teachers helped them achieve the final position and polished them in such a way that they couldn’t learn by doing yoga with the help of CDs.
I was very touched because I celebrated my birthday with this batch, first birthday that started on a very different and good foot. It had been just 4 days since the class had commenced, we were still getting to know each other, yet the students made it so special for me and gave those lovely and warm wishes. It feels really good when somebody gives you such hearty wishes. The proud and happy moment for a teacher is when they see their students improve. Such was my experience, in the first week of the class, I could sense discomfort on the faces of them while sitting in Vajrasana, but in the fourth week, they were able to sit in the Asana for a longer duration and in a comfortable manner.
It really makes you feel blessed when the students say they feel a lot better physically and mentally with just 4 weeks of yoga practice. My oldest student is 87 years and he said that if I can learn something new at this age and if it still makes me improve then I would love to continue this practice.
The last comprised of Dhyan Varg, that is meditation class.It was such a blissful one hour, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Later that evening, we had a small function for the teachers-to-be, wherein everyone was sharing their experiences and we also had dinner organised by the Institute. I am going to miss this batch a lot. I hope that all of us remain in touch and keep practising yoga forever.
Doesn’t it feel amazing when you are part of the reason for somebody’s wellbeing? I feel proud of myself for helping others live a better life. I am extremely grateful to my institute that has entitled me to such good knowledge, helped me improve as a person and evolved me from a student to a teacher.
This batch will forever remain special to me.

The exams season has commenced. It was our last class in these weeks and I am really sad about that fact. This last one year has been really amazing to me. I started off with this class with a bunch of strangers and now when the end is near, I can say that I have made some good friends over here. Being the youngest one in this course, everybody welcomed me with open arms and I got all the attention and love.
It was difficult initially as everyone was older to me and they grasped all the spiritual knowledge much more easily than I did. But, I soon picked it up because I was very much interested in this yoga knowledge.
Anyway, we still have 2 months remaining for the course to end, but these 2 months have nothing but exams and tests. Post which I will become a Certified and Trained Yoga Instructor. Ah! I feel so happy about it already.
So in this week, we had our lesson planning exam, wherein we had to plan a whole lesson on Asana and Mudra. It was pretty good. My ma’am told me that she sees a lot of potential in me and that somehow motivated me to work hard and I am going to do just that. She also told me that she expects a lot from me. I won’t let her down.

Aries (March 21 – April 19):
Health: Take care of yourself and try to maintain a good and healthy lifestyle this year. Also, try to stay away from anything that is affecting your health in a negative way.
Love: The Justice Card sure indicates that there should be transparency in your relationships, stay away from cheating your loved ones. It also denotes that you need to be careful by not being too judgemental or critical towards your relationships.

Work: You are a people’s person, aren’t you? Well, shine just like that then. This year, the career front pushes you to be in the limelight. It is a going to be a great year for anyone in the PR, business or holding a responsible position.

Love: Numerous love opportunities will knock your door this year, Taurus. Don’t be completely ignorant about it. Accept it and enjoy what it has to offer to you. Your love luck is definitely in your favour this 2017.
Money: Consider what fate has to offer to you. Though the money luck is also in your favour and you can bet your stars for any lotteries, too, this phase isn’t going to be a stable one, it will come and go and come back again.
Work: As far as the work/career goes, trust your gut instinct. With the Strength Card placed perfectly, you can overcome or survive any situation. You won’t require constant support and you can very well work things out on your own.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20):
Health: Do not try to experiment with your health. Just take one step at a time and at your own pace.
Love: Your love life is going to be great in 2017. Partnerships are in your favour this year.
Money: This year can be a good shift for you, from the bad phase to a better phase. There can be chances of you moving out of your geographical boundaries for your career or expansion.
Work: You will be in control of your career. Keep learning and updating yourself this year. You will be the kind of person who usually is behind the scene but ensures all the actions are profitable. You need to stay focused and you prove to be an excellent person on who others can depend upon for advice.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22):
Health: With the King of Wands Card coming in for your health, you don’t need to worry about anything as you will have everything under control and in check.
Love: Your love life, be it towards your partner or the love towards your family, both are in the happy zone. Your love/family will stand by each other and spread the love.
Money: You can expect some unexpected flow of money through an old friend/connection this year. However, this doesn’t mean that you start tapping all your old connections now. Let things happen on their own.
Work: Appreciation, growth is on the table for this year. This also seems to be a good year for work related travelling. You might be in the spirit to go wherever you see growth or achievement, just ensure that you are well balanced to move things ahead.
Leo (July 23 – August 22):
Health: No one can tell you better about your body but you. So this year pay close attention to the messages that your body is giving you.
Love: One can never get anything out of crying over spilt milk. The Cards are telling you to move on and not to be stuck in the past. Not every time will you trust the wrong person. Let go of old things to accept the new things that life has to offer to you.
Money: You might have to hold on to your money this year. Think twice before spending unnecessarily.
Work: If an opportunity arises wherein you would be required to multitask or do 2 things simultaneously, close your eyes and go for it. A good year to balance different things.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
Health: Virgo, you need to take care of your health this year, especially any heart-related issues. Don’t take any criticism or stress too much.
Love: This might be a rough year for love, because of your own self. Watch what you say, as unknowingly you might be hurting or coming off as selfish to your loved ones. Work a little bit on your communication skills this year.
Money: Follow your gut feeling and have trust in God. Things will turn out to be just fine.
Work: Have you been planning to start something of your own? Guess what, now might just be the right time to do so! 2017 seems to be a good year to start your own business.
Libra (September 23 – October 22):
Health: Just like behind every successful person there is someone, behind your good health lies your ever supporting family and loved ones. And even if you tend to fall sick this year, don’t worry, your loved ones have your back.
Love: You are never too old to learn something new. Keep working on yourself, you are not perfect and you know it. Just keep getting better at everything. If you become stale it will indirectly stale your relationships.
Money: The World Card indicates that you will get the growth that you wanted but it also means that you would be required to step out and do something against your ethics to get what you want. But hey, money is guaranteed.
Work: In terms of career, you will have to be a little bit patient to get the job of your dreams. You will be required to put in more efforts and the rewards that you will get in return won’t match your expectations. Slow growth, I would say.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21):
Health: Don’t let sadness and depression get you, Scorpio. Try to remain happy and optimistic. Also, listen to the signs of your body, don’t ignore the little messages that it sends you. Have certain health goals in your mind this year? Go for them, but with all your heart and against all odds. Also, stay away from anything that stresses out your body or mind.
Love: You need to work on your tongue this year. Unknowingly, the tongue of yours is doing more damage than it possibly can. And it is just because of your words that your loved ones might drift away from you and start hating you.
Money: Money wise, this year seems to put you in power or authority, enjoy it while it lasts.
Work: If your work starts giving you stress and sleepless nights, accept it sooner that it is not meant for you.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):
Health: With the Tower Card coming up for health, stay away from stressful situations. Severe health issues can take place, but don’t give in. Try to indulge yourself in meditation. This year might seem tough, but just keep swimming, you will be through it.
Love: Why do want to be a miser when it comes to love? Don’t refrain from showing your love. Shower your loved ones with love, attention and create beautiful memories out of 2017.
Money: The Tarot Cards believe that this year is a little slow when it comes to finance. Due to past experiences, not only you are taking things slowly but destiny is also on the first gear with you.
Work: You have got to learn to say No this year. Don’t take unnecessary negative burdens this year. This won’t give you anything in return monetarily, but it will only hamper your productivity. Don’t take additional responsibilities and overwork yourself.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19):
Health: Capricorn, try to tap your spiritual side as this year is more like a detox for you. Drop all the bad old habits and embrace the new ones, it is a renewal period for you. Try to meditate and calm yourself.
Love: Even though you might feel like running away from the existing situations, don’t do that. That will just make things difficult when you would have no other option but to come back and face the same situations. Just stay put.
Money: The Tarot Cards are in your favour when it comes to finances for 2017. Some kind of a good fortune/bank balance is indicated this year. Cherish what you have, because even all the money in the world is never enough. Enjoy the success and grow together.
Work: New opportunities are coming up for you this year. Your business will now start giving you good money as a result. This is a good year to deal with property.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18):
Health: You need to open your eyes, don’t take your health for granted.
Love: The Tarot Cards have predicted a very happy and content love year for you. Enjoy the little moments and let things run their natural course.
Money: Old ways of getting money will end abruptly but that will happen only to pave a path for the new ways. Have faith, this will be a rebirth kind of a year for your finances.
Work: At the work front, you will have things your way. You will not get stuck in anything and you will be able to get your work from others.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20):
Health: Charge towards your goal, Pisces! Focus and run behind it. Have a healthy year!
Love: Don’t depend too much on whatever the other person is telling you, most of it would just be airy thoughts. Don’t fall for every word that you listen.
Money: This year will give you financial independence. You will make loads of money and wealth, but all that will happen only because you worked hard to achieve it.
Work: However, as far your career is considered, it seems to be a little unstable this year. Be the hard-worker that you are and mind your own business this year, literally.
Hope you all have an amazing 2017!
