We all know that practicing yoga does not have any disadvantage. Bollywood celebrities like Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Kareena Kapoor Khan have relied on yoga for their perfect bodies. Talking about yoga, have you heard about Deepika Mehta? Well, she is the super fit yogini, who is also India’s best known Ashtanga yoga teacher.
With the yoga pictures she posts on social media, she is surely one of the Instagram sensations. Based out of Mumbai, Deepika actually started practicing yoga after she had a near death experience while rock climbing. While doctors said that she won’t be able to walk her entire life, she wasn’t ready to give up.
She started training at the Sivananda Yoga Kendra in Kerala, and started practicing Ashtanga yoga in 2002 under Guru Shri K Pattabhi Jois.
She is known among Bollywood celebrities and among those who she has trained are Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Here are some of her pictures that will definitely give you fitness goals –
I am a Woman, I am strong, I am powerful, I am not afraid to face my fears and darkness, I am not afraid to shine all my glittering Light. I have no reason to Hide all that I am, To make another feel lesser or more. I am sometimes the face of Love and tenderness, And sometimes all that is fierce .. I have no reason to stick to stereotypes . Of 'pretty' or 'beautiful' or 'vulnerable'.. I am who I am.. a Warrior.. ..and a Woman. . . . 📷 @radeshphotography
There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life. .#johnlennon
Chase passion not success. You can live without being a 'success'(..or at least what most people perceive of as success); but without the passion to drive you,I feel life lacks depth. Passion is the nectar of life, and it can be about anything and everything, from the most so called mundane to the most precious. It's the feeling and how much you put into everything you do. For me living a passionate life is living a successful life. I try to create passion by setting myself goals,by inculcating an emotion of gratitude for everything in my life, by giving attention to as much of my day as possible, by creating litttle rituals around my day,by listening to a beautiful piece of music,by dancing a little every day,by eating beautiful food and celebrating it,by moving in ways that make me happy,by looking at beautiful flowers,trees,by reading poetry, by celebrating my meals,my partner, by surrounding myself with passionate people.. . How do you create passion in your life?🔥💖🔥💖💥🦋
