I am Monika chouhan , I was a garment designer by profession and was busy in my designing & export for 14 years . I started gym when I was 30 in order to reduce my weight which I had gained due to pregnancy. I did gym for continually 5 to 6 year and got physical results , but slowly and gradually I was missing something still in my life, I myself was not aware what it is?...... I started looking for change which I was missing in my life. When I was 36 I saw some of the people doing yoga in our gym.
Somehow I was fascinated by that yoga/asana class & started doing yoga along the gym workout, once a week. During that time I was going through lots of up and down in my personal life also. One day I come across “BRAHM KUMARIS meditation” which was really helpful for me. From there i got introduced to path of spirituality & meditation. Gradually i started developing interest toward spirituality & yoga practice. That's what made me decided to learn yoga in deeper way. And I did my yoga teacher training from world capital of yoga “Rishikesh”.
From my Yoga journey I have learned how to connect with my own body, mind & soul.Which made me feel complete . I was very inspired after learning about myself which made me decide that to change my profession from designer to yoga teacher.
Today I am a yoga teacher when I look back, I always say if mediation & yoga had entered earlier in my life, I didn’t have to go thought those hard and painful up and downs of life. As yoga & mediation help everyone to look life with different angels. It gives us a big vision to a human being, that life is not only about work , eating, sex, reproduction and death one day.
Sadhguru said “Happiness start with you. Not with your relationship, not with your job, note with money, but with you”. So, it is very important for all of us to know our self-first. Yoga and meditation are the path which helps me to know myself and now as a yoga teacher I am helping those who are in need.
I tell everyone that “Do not try to fix what ever come in your life. Fix yourself in such a way that what ever comes, you will be fine….If you want to know more about me visit my Instagram page https://www.instagram.com/monika.chouhan/
