Yoga@Workplace – The 5 Elements at work!

Good Day Morning Yogis! You have heard of the 5 Elements of Nature, also known as the Panchmahabhutas in Ayurveda. Our universe is made up of these 5 main elements and are an integral part of us. Being an integral part of us, I started thinking of how we could use these in the work environment. Using the elements of Nature not literally but adapting them to our daily working life. There are many interpretations of the 5 elements in Ayurveda, in Vastu shastra, in identifying our body types but I'm keeping it simple. Here is my take on the 5 elements at work! Air - Vayu - Breathe! Use your breath to energise yourself. Beat stress, stay calm, stay centered. Using Ujjayi breath during the day will just help you keep your wits about you and keep your nerves calm. At least once in your 9-5 work day, take 10 minutes out and do Pranayam and meditation. Sidhasana for Meditation Water - Jala - Hydrate throughout the day. Water does amazing things to your body, keeps you fresh and alert, cleanses, oxygenates. Keep a bottle by your workspace and measure how much water you drink everyday. Earth - Prithvi - At work be grounded! Be strong. Have dreams and expectations, work hard, but make sure you have your feet firmly on the ground, not floating away with your ideas. Fire - Agni -  Keep the fire in your belly burning! Have the grit and determination to go behind your goals, your dreams. Do what you think is right and to believe in yourself. You can keep the fire in your belly alive by doing 3 rounds of Agnisar Kriya every day! Be [...]

LOVE of Sharing and Caring – Karma Yoga Way!

There are different ways of explaining Karma Yoga or community service. For instance different ways of doing it, say monetary, spending time and many others. However what stood out, from my own experience and you all will agree as well is - Karma Yoga is not just about spending sometime and doing a activity, but doing it because you want to do it and with complete happiness. If you can joyfully involve yourself in any activity, that is KARMAYOGA. Life only comes around once, so do whatever makes you happy, and be with whoever makes you SMILE!- Ashley Bryant. On Valentines day spending time with your loved one, family or friends - That in itself is karma Yoga- you are doing it with 100% love and happiness, without any expectation. Thanks to all of you around the globe for the tremendous support for the Karma Yogathon for Vidya!! It's heartening to see how people from across the globe show their support and INVOLVEMENT! On a lighter note, after 108 Suryanamaskars............pretty sure we were involved! We would love to hear your experience of Karma Yoga with us!!
