FAVOURITE SAHAJAN PRODUCT

My favourite Sahajan product is the Protective Face Serum. I use it twice a day, in the morning and at night paired with the Restorative Eye Serum.

THE MOMENT I DECIDED TO PERSUE WELLNESS

I was a smoker when I began my yoga practice. Every time our instructor asked us to breathe in and out up to 10 seconds, I could barely keep up. I was unable to go through the yoga flows, and my core felt weak. About 3 months into my practice I quit smoking, stopped cold turkey. Only about 2 weeks after quitting, my breathing improved tremendously. For the first time, I finally felt my lungs fully expand. Ever since I began living a healthy life - eating foods to nourish my body, being active everyday, and vowing to never ever smoke again.

MY FAVOURITE POSE

I love all heart opening poses, but my favourite would them would be wheel pose :)

WHAT INSPIRED ME TO BE A YOGI

My husband encouraged me to start practicing yoga to elevate my mood as I was in a long distance marriage at the time. At my first ever yoga class, I felt so liberated and at peace, it was true love at first sight :)
