We speak to the yoga enthusiast about her lifestyle, practices, and what gets her going.
DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN THREE WORDS. Passionate, grateful and happy.
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST FEAR? I used to have a fear of dying but after practising yoga and meditation I have embraced the principle of the impermanence in life. With the notion that nothing lasts forever, I have learned to let go and live life to the fullest. WHAT IS AYURVEDA – AND HOW IS YOUR JOURNEY SO FAR? Ayurveda is an ancient Indian ritual developed 3000 years ago which balances one’s mind, body and soul. I have been practising it for the past 10 years by doing rituals like oil pulling, jala neti and Ayurvedic detox. Once every quarter, I do Ayurvedic detox which comprises of an Ayurvedic diet, massages and cleansing. It has been a very rewarding and life-changing journey towards health and wellness and I will continue on this journey for as long as I can. HOW DO YOU START YOUR DAY? I start my day at 6am by doing oil pulling. This is the very first thing I do when I get up from bed. Then, I gargle my mouth with warm sea salt water. I also do oil jala neti by using a neti pot filled with warm sea salt water to clear my nostrils. This helps prevent nasal congestion. After all this is completed, I will begin my yoga and meditation. WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU ON THE BUCKET LIST? It would definitely be a yoga teacher training course in Rishikesh, India. I would love to pursue my passion for yoga and meditation to the next level and this is definitely on top of my long bucket list. Other things include: visiting Lapland, Santa Claus Village in Finland during Christmas, swimming with the dolphins and climbing up Machu Picchu in Peru.
