Effective methods for Healthy Body + Mind

Reason 1,2,3,4….. goes on and on to convince the present state of miserable behavior. Human mind tends to fall down again and once more. It’s a potent substance and is active on its own. Human mind needs to be trained and tamed. The moment you set it loose you are on a troll of your life. It will fall again to the lowest of your life.

You must have come across people who overthink. It’s the art of producing problems that don’t exist. Similar is the tendency of Human Mind, the moment you loose upon constant remembrance you are there!

Everyone has a valid advise for other person’s job. It’s an expert recommend, on how to perform the job. To our surprise, we have advise for almost everyone. However, the irony of life ‘ We are not an expert in our own job.’

If you are reading this now — feel blessed — Human body and Mind are the most astonishing thing you have. If you are glum and in a fragile state of mental health. Please know, you have to explore yourself and love yourself. Despite occupying a human body we are incompetent to connect our body-mind-soul in sync. Coming to the basics, we do not experience the art of breathing! If you learn how to breath properly and keep practicing it. Only then you can appreciate the striking powers of body.

Based on our mood, time, the situation and the state of mind: we produce a reflection for the individual, and it’s character. With time, many of us have developed it as a habit to big mouth others?

How many of us fall in the category,’if I am OK you are OK?
How many of you have opinion for others?
How many of you judge people after considering an interaction for say twice or thrice?
If you come to know someone is doing the same for you? Subsequently you fire back, don’t you!

The mind thinks unrealistically and loves to live in its own dream-world. Believe it or not – we have become a dedicated slave of our mind.


Human body has been designed in a peculiar way. Every body-part needs to work perfectly if you wish to maximize the impactThe body needs regular exercise, nutritious food and sleep. This is the key to healthy body + mind + soul. You will be happy, composed and grounded. Nothing is easy, and no medicine can commit flexible and conditioned body. You have to move your ass! 

No joke— seriously look at yourself. Either side of your body [left or right] will be more flexible, capable and more dominant in size. Hmmm bingo – you are an example for yourself. Live understandable example of how you serve your own body.

Root cause of your pain, stress, anxiety and all the negative emotion is because of your mind. Denial is your priority manipulation is your answer poor mental health is your choice.

Remember, you inevitably have the option to Choose – Take it or Leave it.

Challenge your mind and to see the difference.

I know you are the busiest person. You run short of time, and you are the only one who is trying to protect the world. This looks so delightful to read. Comforts your little ego and makes you feel special. Sorry, wake-up!

Pleasure and materialistic stuff are the exclusive things that excites the mind; knowledge otherwise looks divine in the books or to hear. Try understanding the impact and complications of sedimentary life-style. It’s never late. Many of you are already aware and working on it. Please inspire others.

Enjoy the life you have as per your satisfaction. You are what you think. Keep sharing and help others. Happy to have your comments.

Bless you,

Top 9 reasons why every woman should take Self-defense classes

Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open.”– B.K.S. Iyengar

We have been training women and youth through series of workshops. The curriculum keeps changing as per the need of the participant. We believe in creativity and so are reflected in our workshops. We focus upon the core of the body i.e. body posture, breathing and balance. Body and mind are directly connected and its important to deal with them separately till you are able to sync them easily. We give you the divine amalgamation of karate and meditation in our curriculum.

Our workshops are specially designed for women/girls/children and youth To know more about our curriculum and its benefits click here.

In the month of December workshops are coming near you – contact us to know about the place. Prime locations are: Mumbai – Pune — Baroda — Surat — Ahmedabad — Delhi-NCR — Gurgaon — Goa

There are multiple reasons why you should join self-defense workshops or at least take up one of the classes to experience the same.

Broadly speaking these are the top 9 reasons why you should choose a self-defense workshop.


Endurance and Stamina:
Increased stamina and endurance will remain your most profitable deal. Self-defense training will make you stronger, body muscles will be flexible, strong and you can see increase in your stamina. You will be more contented and productive at your workplace and/or at your home.

Improved body posture:
It helps to improve your body balance and connects you more deeply with your body. Self-defense training helps in improving your body posture and makes it more agile. It teaches you how to focus and concentrate. It’s improves your eye-hand coordination. Without proper focus, power and coordination self-defense is not possible.

Mindfulness:
Self-defense is presence of mind and it teaches you to be alert all the time. It teaches you awareness towards the surroundings, it trains you on using your senses in much better way. Self-defense will make you more alert, active and focused. 

Respect yourself:
Self-defense is no more a choice; in today’s world, it is a necessity. The respect and dignity of women have been at stake for a way too long. In spite of matching steps with men in every distinct field, women are however considered the weaker sex. It’s now time to turn the tables and show the world what women are capable of.

Solo Traveller and Happy:
Want to take a trip to your favourite hill station but have no one to accompany you? Bored of the crowd around you and want to take a lonely walk down the countryside? With self-defense techniques by your side, you don’t have to worry about being alone anymore. Just make a plan, and you are good to go.

Help yourself:
Instead of waiting for official help to come over, a woman can inevitably be her own help. Be it an attempt to steal her purse or a hand extended to grope her in public, it is often too late by the time police comes over to help? Learning a trick or two in self-defense can constantly help a woman to save her stuffs, be it money or modesty.

Stop Domestic Violence :
Definitely, you recite it right. Domestic violence is non-acceptable. You need answering what is better to prevent it from happening in the first place or to crib it after it has happened? If you are skilled in self-defense, you never have to remain a victim. You will automatically stand up for yourself from the day; the first finger gets pointed at you.

Kickass Eve Teasers:
For a woman skilled in self-defense, she never has to keep mum. Whether it’s a lewd comment on the street or a sexual innuendo on the bus she can always speak up for herself without having to worry about the consequences because she knows she is good enough to handle whatever comes her way.

Freedom:
A woman who knows about defending herself in face of imminent danger has ne’er to worry about late night shifts or stranded, deserted alleys. She knows to hold herself together in such circumstances and can give her attacker a good one-or-two if the need comes down to that.

Sharing is caring, we love to perceive you and are eager to reply your possible questions?

Jal Neti : Why should you do it Daily?

Before you start reading – recall how the traditions, cultures and practices from the past is gradually picking up the speed. Technology, ignorance, time-pressed, and more importantly find short-cuts all the time have ultimately screwed up the human body. 

When nothing works, Yoga – Meditation – Spirituality – Ayurveda and age old practices are frantically being chased. A True teacher plays the role in shaping your character, not your handy Google Teacher which lingers like your extended body part. 

It’s been a couple of years that I had been practicing Jai Neti and have perceived significant difference on how my body is responding. Well, it’s recommended to do Jai Neti every day in the morning. On my recent trip to Delhi, I realized how effective Jai Neti was. The pollution in Delhi is so very bad, you need to be in that place to experience what you are breathing. I was okay with my breathing cycles, my eyes were responding effectively with less irritation as compared to others and my stamina was untouched. Looking at the environment, I used to do Jai Neti twice a day to keep myself clean and protected. Kindly note: Jai Neti takes time to restore your body, there is no over-night remedy. Have patience and keep practicing it daily. Modernization and competitive world have completely ignored the power of human body. In legitimate sense, we do not know who to use our body in a correct way.

Jai Neti is an significant part of Hindu Shatkarma. It’s one of the yogic systems of body cleansing techniques. It is intended mainly to clean the air passageways in the head.

Indian Yogis have left behind huge knowledge that can transform your human body and lift it to a completely remarkable level. Am more focused on highlighting about Jai Neti that is getting popular these days. I had been practicing Jai Neti for quite sometime and having learnt it from a glorious sage. It’s more of my responsibility to keep practicing it daily. Once you start experiencing the benefits, it will only motivate you to explore more of your magical human body.

Precautions need to be taken:

  • The water needs to be pure 
  • Preferably use Jai Neti Pot
  • Try to do it empty stomach 
  • Make saline water [by adding salt in the water] The water temperature needs to be around your body temperature or little more
  • The quantity of salt should be perfect i.e no less no more – else you will experience difficulty in performing Jai Neti
  • Blow out the excess water from your nostrils after you are done by closing your mouth and quick breath out from nostrils. Perform this couple of times till you are satisfied that no water is left inside your nostrils

I will precisely not describe how to perform Jai Neti as I recommend you to learn it from an expert and do it couple of times in front of him/her. Many notable health benefits are marked with the continual practice of Jai Neti

  • It clears up your nasal passage and gives your respite from sore throats, sinusitis, mucus and improves your breathing from nose
  • It helps in lowering migraine, headaches and relax eye stress [personally it has helped me to manage a migraine and eye stress] Excess heat is flushed out from your brain and thus helps to manage your headaches and mental stress.
  • Improved and better breathing cycles will keep you energetic and fresh
  • Helpful to keep your ears clean from infection and excess wax deposits 
  • Those who practice meditation and start doing Jai Neti will experience a phenomenal growth and difference in their meditational sessions
  • The helpful cleaning process which not only promotes healthy respiration but also increases the efficiency of eyes and ears

Never perform Jal Neti if you have nose infection, bleeding nose or a wounded nose. Learn from an expert before you start practicing Jai Neti.

Stay healthy, wise and love yourself!

Self-Analysis – Oh! C’mon!

woman-1245817_640.jpg

Self-analysis should be practiced on a continual basis. You should be your most ethical critics – only then you can over come those hurdles called, LIFE. Let’s look at this in a alternative way. Right from childhood we are taught to compete with others, we are given commands [not instructions] to be the best and gradually this gets deeply rooted inside us. We, thereafter in every aspect of life look to compete with others. Many of us have benefited from this approach and they continue to take this legacy forward.

Most of us are trying to find happiness or trying to create moments that can be generating the emotion of happiness.Ironically, happiness is inside us and we are searching for it outside. To our surprise, you must have examined grandparents advising ‘Happiness is inside you, ‘beta’ [child]’. Stop running after money or stop getting affected by your official work-pressure.Does this make sense, can you connect? This is called experience! The old folks are experienced, and they realized! Only after they got retired and were still not able to find happiness. Gradually as day’s passed by they found out! While killing time doing nothing. They realized ‘Happiness’ is and was always inside them! Now its too late for them to rewind and live the years wasted. So, they out of love, concern and care – advise others to chill, take-it-easy, it’s okay, blah blah.. We, being rigid and mind oriented ignore them outrightly.

When I talk about ‘Self-analysis’ the entire idea is to transfer you to a state of awareness. This should promote you to be mindful. Help, pursue conscious efforts to find peace inside your heart and mind. Your competition should be with ‘yourself’! There is no other person like a threat or competitor. Just because you have been trained to compete with others your perception has also been altered & trained. To excel, we need to be best in whatever we do.To be best in whatever we do – we need to practise, practise and practise. However, if you don’t know what to practise then, you will never grow or ever be able to compete. Your target should be to get better every day and overcome your weakness. Self-analyse and allow an eye that can honestly point your weakness. To be true [I have recently started practicing ‘self-analysis.’]

The day starts with you and ends with you. Select how you want to start the day and how you wish to end the day! It’s a personal choice of mind and will definitely display how mindful you are! Your happiness is in your hand! Ooops MIND. 

Cheers,

Anand

Common Man + Digital World

rickshaw-2158447_1280.jpg

Technology, Mobile, Digital World, Digital Economic, Social Media and the Common Man of India.

Developing countries had list of failures strongly webbed and at the same time it does have a list of success stories. However, the eyes and ears go for the failures in most of the cases. Positive attitude is a flavor of life, which every individual should taste. The taste gets better when you have to be strong enough to see positivity in the most negative situation.

Opportunities are never left by the people who experience the craving to grow in life, who are looking forward to squeeze the maximum benefits of the convenient features. In one such instances, while traveling in an auto-rickshaw had been observing the driver. The careful and cautious driver, not at all aggressive as compared.The most striking moment was his patience. While his discussion over the headphone seemed noncooperative, he without loosing his cool made a conference call to discuss the matter. In a couple of minutes, the issue was solved. Perfect use of Technology, it took care of his other parallel on-going business. The craving for growth improves the individual.

Positive Psychology performs a dominant role in your personal growth. With an eye of positivity, you can easily sail forward. Your mental strength will carry out this battle of Life. Day-to-day life is changing, situations are changing; to fit in this constantly changing environment, its important that we too keep evolving ourselves for the betterment.

Cheers,

For Love,

Anand

Better mental health: Karate and Meditation

hijab-3310184_640.jpg

It’s substantial that the awareness of karate and its in-depth power is being felt by everyone. Karate is nothing but it enlightens you to talk with oneself and give you the authority to defend yourself. It’s an open hand technique which in combinations and perfection is a lethal weapon.

The process of self-realization of what you need is what’s more fundamental. In this race of performance, pressures, compromises, adjustments and stress – we forget our own self! We often tend to loose the focus of ‘who we are’ !  and it is left unattended till we can carry the luggage! We, at www.anandkoti.com  strongly believe “Every Problem has a Solution”

giphy-2.gif

Meditative moments in between the Karate workshops makes our curriculum truly special.

Competition has increased, humans are now working more like machines and are attempting to be multi-tasking. To this change – we present you change as well:) At-least to transfer the balance within you!

We provide a unique combination of Karate and Spirituality that would be of your interest. The combination is useful to release the stress, strengthen the body -mind and soul. It prepares you how to handle your body respectfully and when called for it can act like a weapon. We have Self-defense workshop with a mix of #meditation and #karate. We would prepare you in 3-4 self-defense techniques and also help you relax and induce you introduced to your spiritual journey. Your questions about spirituality are also addressed.

Anand Koti focuses upon and promotes the innate values of Karate [self-defense] – Bonding, Management and Security through his workshops. These three virtues he has deeply instilled in himself and hopes to deliver the same to his students.

Body wreck’s Mind : Never ending Pain, Heart-break and Trauma

fruit-3074848_640.jpg
Eye to eye ~ Life is beautiful

Whenever the Balance is compromised the consequences are dangerous. Within all are capacity and capabilities we work hard to achieve the respective aim set in life. This can be being an expert in Yoga, Martial Arts, Music, Sports, Work, Business, Cooking, Driving, Swimming, Body building and anything of your respective choice. Apart from the daily chores of life and work.

Mind makes and creates all its way to burn out the body. Everyone once in a while talks about the power of mind and the miracles performed by it. 

However, if the mind is in control, the body is in control!

It’s difficult to maintain a stable, calm and quite mind. The human body has its own way to communicate and if you are well connected with your body you can understand its need. In the pursuit of success, we end up over-doing and exhaust ourselves to the extent that the damage gets deeper and sharper. 

Balance is the law of nature. The Sun and Moon by its nature defines the day and night for us. Based on this all the activities are designed and defined. Similarly, all the things that you are doing in your respective life also need to have a balance. Do not over do it, do not over exhaust yourself! By not addressing your body needs at the right time, you are doing the biggest mistake and are being super rude to yourself. The body needs rest to rejuvenate itself and recover from the depreciation. It needs time to regenerate cells and muscles needs time to grow. Too much of anything is not at all healthy. Sooner or later everyone undergoes its dangerous impact.

Once the threshold is reached, the body will not respond. Despite of doing meditation or yoga! You will experience frequent body pains, irritation, mood swings, muscle cramps, sleepless nights, depression and you can also see the relationships feeling the dent. 

What can possibly help you? 

  • Do not do anything in excess?
  • Work within your schedule and have a daily time-table
  • Learn to say NO
  • Have a balanced diet on TIME 
  • If you are not sure about your workouts regime – find an experienced trainer 
  • Don’t indulge in negative thoughts and don’t get lost in past
  • Everything happens on TIME
  • Hang out with those who help you come out of crisis
  • Don’t punish yourself by always criticizing yourself
  • Meditate and practice yoga
  • Love yourself and practice forgiveness 
  • Trust : The invisible power – God
  • REST your BODY and MIND   

Respect – This body is a rented place 

Human mind is a very powerful tool and it knows how to make you a fool. Try to connect with your body and understand what is its need! Once the mind takes over nothing on this earth can help you. Be brave, strong and practice total acceptance. This will help you give the courage and strength required to control mind. Be kind and humble.    

Cheers,

Love & Luck,

Anand
