Her initial classes were no less than a Hercules task for her. But, with time and practice she learnt that yoga is for everyone and anyone can practice it.

According to her, “Yoga is a spiritual practice which helps an individual to be, feel and see himself. It is the practice of non-attachment. Our physical body is not the only deciding factor for whether yoga is meant for us or not.”

And she totally proves it in her wonderful pictures and videos on Instagram which she basically shares for keeping a track of her progress.
