Fitness Coach, Yoga Teacher, Pilates and Aerobics trainer, Reiki Healer, Blogger are some amongst the many activities that Shweta Raizada specializes in. Having mastered modern fitness regimes like Aerobics, Pilates, resistance training etc. she strives to blend it with her expert passion -Yoga Practice, thereby joyfully connecting to the 5000 year old tradition. Her mission is to instill an intrinsic transformation inspired by the alchemy of Yoga. Her present focus is on formulating a healthy ultra-pure, minimally processed oxidant rich Green tea that would be launched in first quarter of 2017 and will be called ‘Simply Green’ by Fitsvilla. Her articles appear in Stayfit magazine and her blog at www.fitsvilla.com.

Embracing every morning with a beautiful smile and a deep inhalation, my day brightens in my little yoga hub with my ever energetic yoga companions, waiting for me to deliver to them a yogic hour. Yes! I feel absolutely beautiful being a Yoga Teacher. Having mastered several modern fitness regimes from leading organizations like Reebok, Pilates Institute of America, BFY, AHA etc., I eventually found my calling in the traditional Indian Wisdom of Yoga. My tryst as a wellness coach began eight years ago, with a desire to loose the stubborn fat that was lovingly clinging around me. So I stepped into the studio to join the fitness classes to lose weight. It was sheer coincidence that a Fitness Trainer batch was about to begin there. I instantly changed my decision and signed up to learn the science behind loosing weight. This implied being empowered to help myself and many others to stay fit ‘n’ healthy for the rest of the life. Soon as a trainer I would have cheerful mornings and evenings with my aerobics students flowing with my choreography on the latest aerobics music and then rushing to multiple gyms helping folks use weights and equipment. The pace and students ever increased. Till one day, when a minor mishap left me with a badly injured ankle and I was advised rest for a month. A Setback! Now what?

My only GOAL was to pass this sedentary period without adding a single pound. I began thinking out of the fitness manuals and designed my own set of rehabilitation routine for my injured lower body. Simultaneously working hard enough for my Upper body. I practiced a lot of yogic breathing techniques and yoga asanas that were showing remarkable result... Soon I successfully recovered from my ankle injury. And I was stronger than before. I development a love for yoga and wanted to learn more of it. I would join different yoga classes to feel nourished. I also switched to delivering yoga sessions instead of aerobics. It wasn't about what was better and not what the world was doing. It was about what I was passionate about and what suited me more. I learnt- "My Mind, my body, my rules, explore, feel and then configure..." My life as a Yogi is a quest much beyond the realms of asanas. I have discovered Pranayama magnifies your life force energy, while Dhyana (meditation) uplifts you spiritually. This ancient practice harmonizes mind, body and soul by offering mental, physical and spiritual benefits. Initially I needed to blend Yoga with modern fitness regimes but over the past two years people are actually seeking its traditional pristine format. This largely was due to the stellar efforts of our Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji , which is his finest gift to humanity. As enshrined in the Yoga Sutra – “tapahswadhyayeshwarpranidhanani kriyayogaha” meaning self discipline self study and devotion is yoga in form of action. Whatever be your objective, get yourself a Yoga mentor and get going. Being too much result oriented often leads to break in consistency. So begin with small steps...Keep adding to your steps... Progressively keep growing... Set backs are quite a blessing... Welcome them with a positive attitude.

But winter can also play havoc with your skin leading to dry, flaky skin and chapped lips, if adequate care is not taken. This becomes especially important for young brides, whose weddings are around the corner. Here are a few tips that will help you keep your skin hydrated and glowing through winter. Dry skin suffers more than oily skin and should follow the following more religiously. However, the following measures are helpful for all types of skin. 1. Your skin texture depends not only on external treatments, but also on the intake. A proper nutritious intake helps in rejuvenating the skin from within. Water is essential for our body systems and a good intake of 3-4 L daily should be maintained by all. This helps in retaining the moisture of your skin as well keeping skin disorders at bay. Fruits and vegetables in your daily diet release a lot of water also to your system. Primrose syrup / capsules and olive oil in your diet also aids in softening your skin. 2. Cold weather and cool winds aggravate dry skin condition. Moisturizers and cold creams are a must in the winters Tone and moisture after each cleansing to preserve and replenish the moisture in your skin. Use a moisturizing night nourisher every evening. Apply a daytime moisturizer around your eyes and on dry-skin areas each morning after a dermatologist’s opinion preferably for the best suited brand for your skin type. 3. Use the paste of ground green gram powder instead of soap to work your way to a soft and supple skin if you to believe in going natural sometimes also mixing it with curd / raw milk. 4. Pamper you skin with a little coconut oil before bath to heal dryness and chaps. Use a creamy soap that renders that extra suppleness to your skin.

So who said sunscreen is only for the summers? The sun is out 365 days a year and be it summer, rain or winter, you need to protect your skin from the sun. Even from the thick black clouds we see beaming sun rays and photo damage, early wrinkling increase in pigmentation can occur if one does not wear the sunscreen during winters. 5. Wait 30 minutes after bathing, or washing your face, before going out into frigid air. Splash your face with cool water when you come back inside as it’s known that extreme temperature changes can burst capillaries near the skin's surface. 6. Add a few drops of oil to the water that you are using to bath. This will help retain the moisture lost when bathing infact going for a pre-bath warm oil self-massage, called abhyanga, is a must-do.. Avoid using very hot water during winter as it can decrease the natural oils of your skin. Instead shorten your bath time preferably 7. Although it doesn't taste very great flaxseed oil can moisturize your body from the inside. Since it is rich in vital fatty acids it can do a lot for your overall health. It is available in oil form as well as in capsule form.
