“We all lead extremely chaotic and busy lives, so this stop-gap has allowed us to really bond and find rewarding activities to do together. Yoga was always something I personally found peace in, i am a big fan of Pranayams and I think its what intrigued Diviyaana and Vansh as well. They’ve proactively begun to join my morning sessions, and it’s extremely calming to guide them and great fun. It’s a wonderful activity to indulge in with our families at home to get away for a little bit,” Deepshikha said.
International Yoga Day was instituted by the UN in 2015 to raise awareness about its benefits. Having originated in India, it forms a part of many personal routines in the country as a way to keep fit and stay centered, and often manage stress and anxiety issues. Moreover, Deepshikha feels that it’s a practice not just for the adults and that children should practice it as well. “Its a tough world out there and future generations should be equipped to deal with anything that comes their way. Being accustomed to a calming activity like yoga can only bode well for our young ones in the future,” she added.
