I started yoga 6 years ago, and had tried many yoga styles and classes in the past. Here in Yogshakti, I discovered a whole new approach to yoga that made me join their 21 Day Courses regularly. Although I was not new to yoga, with Shilpa, the way to get into the poses is very different. It is kind to the body.
When I started, I was very busy with work, so I had some doubts on attending class early at 6.30am every single day. But throughout the course, I found myself in a very good shape. I felt refreshed, not exhausted. I always leave the class in a nice, peaceful state of mind.
Shilpa teaches beyond the asanas. We are introduced and encouraged to practice the holistic yogic lifestyle. She teaches us the very important fundamentals: how to sit, stand and walk that we can apply on daily basis. It makes me remember to position myself properly. Sitting too much used to be painful to me, but thanks to the hip opening exercises taught by Shilpa, I now have far less pain around the hip.
Yogshakti’s 21 Day Course is truly a great way to give some time to yourself, particularly if you are very busy in life. It is a fantastic gift to yourself.
