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.
