Snigdha Bharadwaj opens her heart out on Women Fitness on the occasion of International Yoga Day

Namita Nayyar:

Can you share your journey with yoga? How did you first discover yoga, and what inspired you to become a yogini?

Snigdha Bharadwaj:

I was introduced to Yoga through Jal Neti Kriya while serving as a technical officer with the Indian Air Force in 1998. Some gentle but profound stretches & meditation made me realize the before and after effects of Yoga!

This sowed the seed of the future that I am living today. I instantly connected with Yoga and during the Kargil war, it was yoga and meditation that helped me keep my awareness at the peak in daring and challenging situations. I continued with whatever little I knew regarding aasans and a bit of meditation but was always felt the void for something more.

It was much later in life when I left the Indian Air Force and stepped into the corporate world, I realized the dire need to have a work-life balance. The overwhelming life had given me the gift of failing health- spondylitis, thyroid, acidity, low BP, Sciatica, etc. I still thank those tough days that made me get drawn towards Yoga once again …. this time it was serious.

I learned Sudarshan Kriya and asanas at the Art Of Living Centre and realized that yoga is just not making a pretzel of your body!! I can now proudly say that the quest for yoga gave me my Gurudev- Sri Sri Ravishankar ji – my inspiration!!

I soon became an Art Of Living Teacher & and a certified Yoga teacher by Ayush Ministry and Sri Sri School of Yoga. I started teaching Sudarshan Kriya, Yoga & Meditation to people and also learned about healing mudras that are helping close to 6 lakh people through my Insta handle #yogic_hacks! I dropped my corporate job to follow my passion- and transitioned from serving corporations to serving the society.

Recently I have also become a Nadi Astrologer which is a unique science of time and the remedies also leads one to Yoga!!

Namita Nayyar:

How has yoga transformed your life physically, mentally, and spiritually?

Snigdha Bharadwaj:

I call it 3D Fitness- Physical, Emotional, and Mental – the combination of these automatically brings forth the Spiritual Fitness.

For me, Spirituality is – clarity in mind, purity in heart & spontaneity in action~Sri Sri ..and yoga has given me all of this.

Needless to say, I recovered from the physical challenges mentioned above and also realized that all these so-called “lifestyle diseases” are the outcome of a stressed mind. Everything starts at the mind level so save your mind at any cost- is my mantra now!

As Sri Sri says- We spend half our lives earning wealth and losing health…..then we spend the 2nd half of our lives spending wealth to earn back the health and it never comes back 100%.

I realized that yoga must happen every waking hour and not just the time one spends on the yoga mat! Every step of life presents something new and it’s up to our mental and physical health how to take it- we can get angry and aggressive and retaliate violently only to regret it later ..or absorb and accept and then take action from the space of calm but firm state of mind. All this became possible when I started doing my yoga asanas, Sudarshan Kriya, and meditation diligently every single day of my life!
