“Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths.”
“Yoga is a continuous ongoing individualistic journey. No two people have the same path of progress in yoga. Keeping this in mind, the role and scope of a yoga teacher or instructor becomes extremely sensitive and critical.” says Mr. Sharad Dixit, an inspiring yoga and fitness instructor from Lucknow. Mr. Dixit’s passion for fitness became the inspiration towards his own fitness institute. They say that to succeed you have to believe in something with such passion that it becomes a reality, and here Mr. Dixit’s belief towards his passion for fitness and his vision led to the foundation of ‘Sharad Dixit Yoga and Fitness Centre’. Whether you want to run a marathon, lose weight, body toning, build muscle, lower blood pressure, boost mental focus, or simply get stronger, joining a fitness regime gives you access to everything you need towards a healthier life.
Mr. Sharad dixit further adds, “To me, asking whether yoga is exercise, let alone aerobic exercise, is like asking if an apple is an orange or an orange an apple, though admittedly that distinction isn’t made by everyone. Personally, yoga is the ultimate practice. It simultaneously stimulates our inner light and quiets our overactive minds. It is both energy and rest. Yin and Yang. We feel the burn and find our bliss.” His curiosity towards looking for the inner peace led him to pursue his BPED and Masters in Human Consciousness and Yogic Sciences. Apart from this he has certificate courses in yogic sciences and physical fitness and takes a keen interest in attending International Yoga Conferences. Mr. Dixit aspires to teach yoga to as many people as possible and guide them towards a better quality of life.
True yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life. It is not to be performed, but to be lived. And yoga doesn’t care about what you have been; it cares about the person you are becoming. It is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to be truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied. Yoga is different from any other physical exercise as it not only harnesses your physical energies but improves your mental capacity. It helps you feel motivated, detoxified, and stress-free also helping you concentrate with a fresh train of thoughts. Yoga purifies your soul and brings you inner peacemaking you patient with others thus developing you into an overall better human. And there is always a pleasure in discovering something; in becoming something new. You could will yourself into a fresh shape. When you practice yoga long enough, the practice changes to suit your needs. It’s important to acknowledge that the practice isn’t meant to be one practice for everybody. The beautiful thing about yoga is that there are so many different approaches. As you go through your life cycles, hopefully, you will be able to find a practice that suits you. And if you shall practice yoga long enough, that will change many times. What exactly that looks like is going to be different for each person.
Yoga develops inner awareness. It focuses your attention on your body's abilities at the present moment. It helps develop breath and strength of mind and body. It's not about physical appearance. Mr. Dixit tells us that yoga studios typically don't have mirrors. This is so people can focus their awareness inward rather than how a pose — or the people around them — looks. Surveys have found that those who practiced yoga were more aware of their bodies than people who didn't practice yoga. They were also more satisfied with and less critical of their bodies. For these reasons, yoga has become an integral part of the treatment of eating disorders and programs that promote positive body image and self-esteem. Yoga is recognized as a form of mind-body medicine that integrates an individual's physical, mental and spiritual components to improve aspects of health, particularly stress-related illnesses. Evidence shows that stress contributes to the etiology of heart disease, cancer, and stroke as well as other chronic conditions and diseases. Due to the fact that stress is implicated in numerous diseases, it is a priority to include a focus on stress management and reduction of negative emotional states in order to reduce the burden of disease. Viewed as a holistic stress management technique, yoga is a form of CAM that produces a physiological sequence of events in the body reducing the stress response. The scientific study of yoga has increased substantially in recent years and many clinical trials have been designed to assess its therapeutic effects and benefits.
In conclusion, Mr. Sharad Dixit adds,” Yoga offers us something else, transformation at the core – a change that is rooted deeply in our bodies, our minds, and our spirits. And change is not only inevitable but always happening. When you truly embrace this concept of change being constant, the only thing left to do is grow, detach, venture inwards, touch the spirit and find your source — the one responsible for keeping you grounded through the ever-changing seasons of life.”
