Why I chose to become a Yoga teacher

Written by on

N amaste friends, I am Shivangi Sharma, I am a professional Yoga teacher. My journey to become a Yoga teacher didn't start too long back. After finishing engineering in 2016, I took up a job. After 3 years of working, I realized I was not a good engineer and I wasn't made for this.

Common Problems
All of you are aware of the physical problems that an engineer faces. For me, it was no different. Gradually, trouble began to grow. I had been wearing glasses from school. With the kind of work I had to do, my eyes became watery and began to pain. The problem started making me irritable.

The pressure to work with deadlines gave me mental pressure. I did not get time for meals & my sleep cycle went hay-wire which made me very upset. And then one day I left the job in frustration. I was very happy that day.

Awareness of Yoga
For some 6 months of leaving the job, I did not give any interviews nor did I have a job. I was just paying attention to my health. In 2014 PM Modi started promoting Yoga. People were understanding that we have something that can keep us healthy. One day my mother said that if you have too much problem then you leave this field. And since you are free now then why not start Yoga at home only. I was very happy to hear this and started Yoga at home. I started watchin YouTube videos on how to start Yoga. I started collecting all this information. I had been practicing Yoga for two years now and have already learnt a lot.

In our country, health and diet is not given much importance. We are still much behind many countries in terms of conciousness towards health. That's when I decided that I want to make a career in this field. I found out about one year diploma course in Yoga in my city. I completed that course. And during that time my interest in Yoga only went up.

My Aim
Today, my goal is to teach Yoga in the right way. I want to go further in Yoga. Yoga is not an excercise. It is a scientific, spiritual and psychological technique that takes us in the right direction of health. I am currently finishing my master's degree in Yoga. I will always have this purpose, to bring the right yoga technique to the people.
