Smriti: An Engineering Raw Foodist Gets Her Ashtanga On!

Smriti Kirubanandani’s a complex yet elegant blend of beauty and brains.  She has completed her B.Tech in Computer Science and Engineering, MS in Engineering Management and Marketing, and has been a raw foodist for 5+years.  She is an avid runner – who could run half marathons on any random day picked!  She is also a dedicated Ashtanga practitioner.

Smriti spends most of her time in the marketing world, while she simultaneously spreads her love for health and nutrition via consultation and writing health articles for the UrbanAsian website. Check out some ways in doing Ashtanga below in the photographs of Smriti!

Smriti – “Your body is like clay, and your mind is the creator- use your mind to mould yourself into what you want to be; physically and spiritually”

Ashtanga yoga, created in the tradition of Sri.K.Pattabhi Jois, is a practice that involves ‘six series’ starting from primary, intermediate, and advanced – A, B, C, D.

It is a beautiful synchronization of breath and movement, which elegantly and strongly carries one through a sequence enhancing body heat, removing impurities, strengthening your body and calms your mind. Visit www.kpjayi.org for more details.

Breathe – It is free and it’s hypnotizing when you do it right.

“Yoga is for everyone, except the lazy ones”- Sri.Pattabhi Jois
