Tanny believes that life is all about moving on, one must not hold onto anything. She firmly believes and lives by the line “Change is the only constant”.
“Yoga is something I have been practising since my childhood but frankly I was not passionate about it till my college. I started liking it at the age of 17-18 when I got into gyming. Alongside I joined yoga classes too as I’ve been doing it since childhood, and when I joined yoga I realised that due to years of practice, I could do a lot of postures that others were not able to do.”
“I received lots of compliments from people shortly after and I felt more confident about myself. I realised I had a lot of knowledge about yoga without taking any professional degree and decided to make a career out of it. I got passionate about it but couldn’t train anyone as certification is important for that. I found my passion and realised that being a certified trainer would help me even more. Shortly after, I started with my yoga training, became a certified yoga therapist and became a full time yoga instructor.”
Change Is The Only Constant
“I believe that change is the only constant. I know I’m a well established certified yoga instructor and do not need any further certification. I can happily enjoy my life, but that’s not something I root for. I want to learn new things, I want to explore as much as I can. I’ve gained flexibility but now I want abs, and I will work towards that goal. I believe in growth, constant growth. And that’s the kind of people I idolise. I like surrounding myself with people who are like me. One must look for a motivating factor and keep moving on in their life.”
“Life wasn’t as easy as it seems right now, I had a really tough time while learning yoga. I’m a hard core non-vegetarian and I had to give it up at the yoga ashram. Not everything was available at my one voice and that was a turning point of my life. It taught me how to appreciate the smaller things in life. I learnt how to be grateful for everything that you have in life. I’m thankful that I’m able to live this life, I have all the essentials. And it’s important to learn these values of life. Small things will make you realise that you have enough.”
“I always wanted to get a tattoo when I was young and hence decided to get one. Though back then I had no idea about what tattoo I should get. I had no knowledge about tattoos, neither did I know what I should do, should I read articles? Should I get a tattoo on my hand? All I remember is I had spontaneous thoughts about getting a tattoo and I just went and got myself inked.”
“I got a bird tattooed on my back shoulder. For me, it was a sign of freedom and independence as back then I had moved to Bangalore. I paid my own bills, I took care of my expenses, I was free and independent, what could have been better than a bird?”
Tattoos and Youth
“My family was kinda okay with me getting a tattoo. But I was pretty clear while getting inked, that I want it in such a way that I should be able to hide. It must be designed in a way that I should be able to flaunt it whenever I want and hide it whenever I want. Not that I want to hide it most of the time, but it’s easy for me that way.”
“There’s one thing I would advise the youth today is to have proper knowledge before getting a tattoo, have a vision, have a reason, know why you want to get a tattoo. Get something that is close to your heart, know that a tattoo is not just a mere ink but an untold story that you carry with you forever. You see, tattoos are a great way to express yourself, so I guess next time I’ll go for something related to yoga because that is very close to my heart.”
