I feel proud that Yoga has been originated in ancient India, and the rest of the world from all walks of life are practising yoga. I make a point to incorporate Yoga into my fitness regime which gives me discipline in my lifestyle. My Parents, my sisters and me, we all do yoga together and it is kind of a Family activity and fun. It helps me in my dance as yoga is the alignment of soul, body, and mind. It gives you peace and calm .”
