Formerly a flight stewardess, Shidah used to be ‘allergic’ to exercise. It was only when she started to develop recurring back and shoulder issues that she decided to step onto the yoga mat.
The therapeutic effects of her first Hatha Yoga session with her first yoga guru, Bisu, got her hooked.
Nine years on, and yoga continues to be a big part of Shidah’s healthy lifestyle. She hopes to share what she’s learnt so that others, too, can benefit.
Shidah did her 250-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga Vidya Gurukul in Nasik, India. Besides being a familiar face at Yoga Vihara, she also teaches corporate and private classes.
Off the mat, she’s mad about food, travel and her 20-year-old cross-breed Persian cat.
Fortunate to be introduced to Yoga at a young age of 17, it has kept her going throughout difficult times in college and at work. She had a taste of peace, and wanted more.
Her curiosity led her to many parts of India, and in Paramanand Yoga Institute of Science and Research, Indore India, she studied Traditional Yoga and witnessed many people who could not be healed by modern Western medicine got relief from common ailments like slipped disc, cervical spondylitis, migraine, diabetes and such through Yoga therapy.
“The more I journeyed outwards in search of answers, the more I realised that the answers were always and have been within. We are always looking for things outside to make us happy, when all that can truly make us happy is inside. The art of happiness is simple, one have to just learn how to Be. Discover within yourself, that you are complete. When that happens, you will also achieve total health – physical, mental, social and spiritual health.” ~ Krisa
