Yoga Practitioner Sadhana On Learning To Love Self Again With Yoga

  • IWB Post
  •  August 5, 2018

Sadhana Sadana‘s heart belongs to mountains so much so that the 28-year-old yogini shifted her base from Delhi to a village in Manali, last year. 

Four years in a well-paid corporate job couldn’t earn her happiness and so she decided to quit, take a break, and travel to remove the burden of the cluttered mind. Traveling became a blessing in disguise and things connected slowly for Sadhana.

In the scenic lap of nature, Sadhana began to meditate and meet new people, which eventually, led her to a newly discovered love of her life – Yoga, in the year 2015.

In a candid chat with Sadhana, we learned how Yoga practice brought her closer to her true self.

Read excerpts:

Tell us about your journey to body positivity through Yoga.

Yoga teaches you acceptance. Growing up and in adult life, I was criticised for my dark skin colour and my short height. Yoga showed me a path to self-love. It has brought me closer to acceptance and gratitude. I learned to feel empowered in my body.

I breathe my way to wholeness. Inhalation. Exhalation.

Your Instagram page speaks a language of sensuousness.

I have become comfortable in my body. Body-confidence is a part of me now. Yoga has brought me closer to the sensual self. I realised this even more when in a recent shoot, my photographer asked me if I’d be comfortable to take off the top. And, I was. I didn’t hesitate at all.

The experience was unforgettable. I could feel the wind, smell the nature, and feel like never before. Thereafter, I saw a dream, in which I was wandering naked in the forest. The next morning, I could feel the shift of the energy. I was happy, it was like an inner soul calling.

You are seen wearing the orange wrap-around just like in the old times worn by yoga gurus. A way to stay in touch with roots?

Haha, should I reveal a secret? I mostly wear yoga pants only for shoots and pictures. I wear the wrap-arounds most of the times because of its immense comfort. I need to wear something loose because there is a certain flow of energy in our body when we practice Yoga, which anything tight does restrict it.

Wrapping up, how does yoga and traveling complement each other in your life?

I sort of indulged in Yoga while I was traveling and trekking through the mountains. I explore new places while trekking, where I am intuitively drawn to and make them my new spot for practice.

* Freedom * . Allow others to think and feel what they think and feel. You cannot control what others think of you today. Your responsibility – and your freedom – lies in what YOU think and feel, say and do. . You may not be able to wake others up from their nightmare, but you can leave the drama behind and wake up your own fierce and loving and protective Heart. . Be the freedom !! .

Remembering the times of good practice and times in the forest just a stroll away. My body and mind have been feeling tired lately, physically and energetically. And i’m not fighting but accepting all the changes. ✨ Also to mention the things i share here are just what i want to show and there are so many facets of human experience that I go through like each one of us apparently don’t come to my social media. . ✨ Only portraying happy and motivating things are deceiving as it’s not what Real life actually is. Real Life is full of challenges and failures. Seeing myself falling in the same circles and patterns I thought I had grown out of. ✨ Learning through the Life process. I’m no enlightened and that is not where I will reach if I can’t be human first , embracing all the facets of being human, all the ups and downs with taking account of my actions. . Social media is great to share and get inspired however don’t think it’s the reality as it’s not the full information at the first place. So be kind and gentle to yourself and never judge based on what others show. You are unique and so is your journey. Only Love ♥️♥️ .
