In Photos: Yoga Lessons From SHEROES Community Members!
Morning goodness means various things for different people. But for most, it is about starting the day on a happier-positive note. And what better way than to indulge in yoga? We ran a contest asking our community members about their favourite yoga poses and they shared some really inspiring pictures. Take a look and start practicing few of these asanas!
An amazing picture of Rajlakshmi shared by her on Twitter. All we can say after looking at this picture is - wow! Describing this image in her own words, Rajlakshmi says, “A moment of stillness as I catch the first rays. Strength, flexibility and a steady gaze to balance #natrajasana.” A brilliant start to the day indeed! Rajlakshmi dons various roles in a day - of a software engineer, a lifestyle blogger and a travel blogger. What better way to maintain serenity in life and #TakeCharge, than by starting your day with yoga!
What a perfect pose Vishakha! When asked about why it’s her favourite asana, Vishakha says, “This is the only instance in my life when bending backward, actually pushes me further! #Chakrasana not only heals and strengthens my back, it calms down my weary mind, body and spirit. This is hands down my favorite yogasana!”
A thorough yoga routine is what keeps the mind and body healthy. Shikha Poddar’s simple reason to follow this routine? “It makes me feel happy!” Isn’t that something we all want :) Shikha can be seenperforming vajrasana, balasana, dhanurasana, setubandhasana and pranayama.
Can you guess the yogasanas Shikha is performing? Love the dedication Shikha!
Some serious fitness goals laid out straight by Shikha :)
Cross training like a pro here is Richa Kukreja, a techie and a traveller. Combining yogasanas with other forms of stretching exercises is a brilliant idea! Thanks for the image tip Richa ;-)

Wherever you are, it’s important to practice what you have taken up. In the simple expanse of her home, Jayshree Mehta shared this picture with us of practicing yoga, which helps her stay happy and healthy. Small joys, we say :)
