A New Year, A New Start πŸ€—


A daily meditation and yoga practice is a life changer. I joined Yoga Vidya Turkey Teacher Training Program in Dec, 2018 and welcomed 2019 with something new in my life. A new year, a fresh start! The picture was taken on certification day. Yoga has always been a part of my life since 2007. This year yoga is a life style for me. I’m so happy that I decided and completed it. Grateful to Yoga Vidya Turkiye, our teachers Hakan Kireckaya and Semra Binici for this education, providing positive energy, being patient and helpful πŸ™

That’s me at the bottom right! 😊

Hope 2019 brings y’all what ever you want.πŸ’•πŸ™ Btw, pancakes anyone? There are two pancake monsters in our home. So, won’t be there for so long πŸ˜†πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜‰

  1. Each year indicates a new beginning, a new way to make tabula rasa and start over. Learn from our remorse and take courage from our regrets.

  6. Yoga has also transformed my life, I started yoga almost 10 years ago. I remembered we will practice yoga from an Indian instructor during our lunch hour in the office. The lessons are quite affordable and since then I have fallen in love with Yoga and been practising almost everyday to get the flexibility. However, I am still struggling with mediation.

  19. I know that I know that I know that Yoga is good for me and I do it for a few minutes and then am mentally tricked into thinking I need something harder, quicker and heavier. It's probably more damaging to my body and yoga would be much safer.

    1. Hahaha.. you made me smile 😊

  27. Back 12 years ago I was introduced to Yoga and I swore I was transformed. I started yoga 3 a days am midday and late nights I was in the best shape of my life. Until one day I fractured my thumb I am slowly trying to get back to where I was so darn fit, flexible and I felt on top of the world. One day at a time. Great post.

  28. Congratulation on completing your course. I am planning to join yoga classes soon. I wanted to try it at home but the best is to take few sessions before trying it at home.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Thank you Sarah!πŸ’•πŸ™
    That would be much better if you get a chance to take a few sessions for sure. If not, starting at home with videos for beginners puts you in a mood and motivates you. πŸ€—πŸ’•
