My Yoga story on International Yoga Day

Featured

I always thought Yoga is another fancy word in the world of fitness which made me quite skeptical if Yoga will be of any advantage to me but since it was being promoted on a regular basis, it increased my curiosity to atleast try one session of Yoga. I am glad I did that since I felt refreshed.

Over the years, Yoga has helped my body in gaining flexibility, building strength, being stress-free, energetic and remain fit. Thereafter, I also tried Aerial Yoga which demanded greater control over body. It increases full-body flexibility and strength. The hammock itself allows you to go deeper into the stretches and poses, further enhancing full-body flexibility #AerialYoga. This might look easy but was very difficult.

Realizing all the benefits, I encouraged my Mom also to start practicing Yoga. This International Yoga Day, I would like every individual to attend Yoga sessions and practice the same.

Ordered some delicious Indian food from Pitaara Kitchen, delivery outlet located in South Delhi. Food was packed and labeled well. Staff ensured timely delivery.

Recheado Potato – Baby potatoes in a sweet and spicy masala with a hint of tamarind.

Calcutta Potato-Keema Chop – Pan fried potato cutlets stuffed with spicy keema. This dish is inspired from the Anglo-Indian community of Kolkata.

Govind Gatte – A dish made with gram flour and cooked in a yoghurt and onion curry. This was served with kurkuri bhindi and Bajra Phulka.

Chicken Tikka Masala – Boneless chicken breast stuffed with chicken keema and cooked in makhani curry. This went well with their Pudina Paratha.

Dogri Meat Curry – Meat on bone cooked with spices. This is a traditional meat curry from the Dogri community of Jammu. Mutton was cooked to perfection with spices and meat was falling off the bone. Had this with Malabar Paratha.

Salted Caramel Kheer – This is something unique I have ever had. Barnyard millet, cooked with milk and sugar. Topped with date palm jaggery-salted caramel. Simply loved it! MUST TRY!!

Detox at Naad Wellness Center near Delhi NCR​ | Ayurveda, Yoga, Therapies and Naturopathy

Featured

Naad Wellness is a holistic wellbeing center located in Sonipat, proximity to Delhi NCR. Naad Wellness features experiential (Detox, Destress, etc) and medical packages (Diabetes Management, PCOS management, Spine Care, Sports Injury Management, etc). Naad Wellness is rooted in the ancient principles of Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, they provide therapies and services restore balance to five senses and help tune into a sound you.

I thoroughly enjoyed my 4 days stay at this beautiful yet relaxing property. I also tried Aerial Yoga for the first time at Naad Wellness. It increases full-body flexibility and strength. The hammock itself allows you to go deeper into the stretches and poses, further enhancing full-body flexibility #AerialYoga. This might look easy but was very difficult and would not have been possible without the experts at Naad.

We did yoga, meditation and various therapies like Abhyanga (the most popular massage in Ayurveda done with warm oil), Shiroabhyanga (complete massage of the head, neck, and shoulders using Ayurvedic herbal oils. It promotes better sleep, body gets strengthened, improves concentration), Swedish massage (It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing), tried the Himalayan Salt Cave (inhale the dry salt-enriched air deep down into their lungs which clean the lungs, promote better breathing, healthier skin, good sleep, improve physical fitness and overall wellness), Padabhyanga (foot care is holistic and involves massaging the pressure points with herbal and medicinal oils) and much more. They have Reflexology Track (walking paths made of rocks turned on edge and closely packed together. It lowers blood pressure, stimulates reflex points, relieves stress, boosts energy)

Naad has kitchen garden with the ‘Farm to Fork’ concept and Chef Sahajan prepares most of the meals from fresh veggies and herbs plucked from their garden. Also had a cooking class with Chef and made Moong Daal Chilla. They focus on having colourful healthy food on your plate for a healthy balanced diet.

The outdoor pool was closed adhering to Covid-19 precautionary measures. Apart from these services, they have Salt Cave and Turkish Hammam. Continuous sanitization and safety measures were taken.

A must visit for everyone to take a break from our busy life. I highly recommend everyone to stay here especially senior citizens. Also watch Wellness Center Tour and my #Staycation video on Instagram @love_yourself_love_life
