Yoga and spirituality are more intertwined than we imagine. Celebrity astrologer and life coach Sundeep Kochar shares some insight into the divine connection:
Busy schedule, lack of sleep, piling stress, exhausted body and mind – that’s a typical metropolitan person for you. Being a part of the rat race has taken toll on people’s internal peace. We are running so relentlessly after money that we are losing in the process the most precious things we have – our mind, body and soul.
Yoga and spirituality offer a holistic package for a healthy living. However, both are deeply connected with each other. According to celebrity astrologer and life coach Sundeep Kochar, yoga and spirituality are similar in the fact that they are personal yet universal. “Both are different faces of the same coin. They fulfil one ultimate aim – showing the path to a healthy, happy and peaceful life,” he says.
Sundeep Kochar, who is quite a yoga enthusiast himself, has been actively associated with promoting the art from last few years. He has been a regular attendee at the International Yoga Day Celebration organized by the Indian Consulate in Dubai.
The event, organized at the World Trade Center in Dubai, has been attracting a number of prestigious guests like Yoga Guru Swami Ramdev, the UAE Minister of Happiness Ohood Al Roumi and Saeed Hareb, secretary general of Dubai Sports Council. The event has also garnered an attendance of more than 20,000 participants from over 100 countries.
The celebrity astrologer has been gracing the International Yoga Day Celebrations in Dubai with his hosting skills since last three years. This year he is looking forward to be a part of the event for the fourth time. The celebrity astrologer praises the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for taking Yoga to the UN, which then passed a resolution and declared June 21 as the International Day of Yoga.
Kochar, who shares cordial relations with Swami Ramdev, credits the Yoga Guru for popularizing the Indian tradition of Yoga across the globe. “Today, the world is appreciating and admiring the wonder Yoga is. People are acknowledging the fact that Yoga is not just a device to attain physical fitness, albeit it also aids a person attain spiritual fitness,” the astrologer says.
Talking about the spiritual perks of practicing Yoga, Sundeep Kochar says, “Committing to Yoga practice on a regular basis doesn’t only make your body stronger, it also awakens the higher consciousness. It is a driving force, a motivation for a deeper connection with oneself. The spiritual connection thus formed is what we need today, amid our busy schedules. It imparts the peace that our stressful lives need today.”
