2 months ago, bored with the monotony of work and with many leaves pending, I decided to go for a holiday. Asked a lot of my friends but none of them were free. Irritated and angry, I finalised on going for a solo trip. Now, this is the first solo trip of my life and I didn't know where to go, how to go about it, how to plan things... To make it more interesting, I decided to make my first solo trip into my first trek. I thought I'd meet new people and make new friends and if nothing works out, I would have at least climbed a mountain. After spending an entire day researching on which trek to choose and where to book it from, I circled on Har Ki Doon. Har Ki Doon is a 7 day trek in the Gharwal region of Himalayas. It's this small valley (as seen in the picture) at an altitude of 11, 800 ft. I immediately booked the trek and the flight tickets to Dehradun and had no idea of what was in store for me. Little did I know that this would be one of the best decisions of my life so far :) #himalayas #mountains #dehradun #valley #uttrakhand #trek #camping #camp #tent #autumnleaves #browns #snow #wildrose #sankri #firstsolotrip #solotrip #gosolo

I always wanted to wear a bikini but was extremely conscious of my body... my stomach bulging out, the cellulite on my thighs and the stretch marks on my bum. And most importantly I was conscious of what people will say. Last year one of my closest friends @survirathi and I planned a trip to Pondicherry and I thought that enough is enough, I should wear what I want to wear. No holding back. So that's what I did. I bought a pair of bikini and wore it on the last day of our trip. Was extremely shy to even come out of the bathroom and show it to Survi. Gladly, there was no other soul in the pool that day and I could forget all my shyness and consciousness and just float, swim and play in water. This was just phase 1. Phase 2 - Survi took a few pictures of me, some general and some in yoga poses. And they are beautiful. Beautiful because of the color of water and leaves and walls and beautiful because I was uninhibited. And I wanted to show those pictures to everyone and tell them how I felt. But, of course all the hesitancy, insecurity and self-consciousness crept in once again. And I cut-copied these pictures to the hard drive and forgot about it. But today, I don't know why, I feel like letting it all go. So, here it goes... #onestepcloser

The sound of the waves and the gentle flow of water are two extremely calming things that I have experienced. #yogaeverydamnday #yogaeverywhere #yogainspiration #yogapants #yogalife #beach #waves #sea #sunset #yoga #yogi #yogini

I remember how this swing was built. The craftsmen would make the mosaic tiled floor and the carpenters would make the wooden net. While growing up I used to love spending early evenings on this swing eating freshly plucked guavas or Cornetto butterscotch ice cream, monkeying on the side bars, sometimes taking a nap with the fan switched on or just sit there and admire the plants and flowers. But I had never imagined that one day I would come back to this and do yoga asanas infront. Actually, I had never imagined I would do yoga at all. #yoga #yogapants #yogaeverydamnday #yogainspiration #yogi #yogini #chakrasana #fitness #fitnessmotivation #home #nature #vacation

For the last couple of months I have not been practicing asanas regularly. But, I do take out sometime and practice handstands at home. Over these months I have started to like handstands and that's for two main reasons. One, everytime I am able to leave the wall and stand straight in the air, even if for a fraction of a second, I feel very strong and immensely motivated and secondly, this feels like my only connection with yoga and asanas these days. I try to be regular to class, to wake up early, to sleep on time but I fail on most days, almost all actually. Guess, I just have to try harder... to get to class and to get to hold the handstand longer. 🤸
