Ms. Namita Nayyar
From the corporate world to becoming a yogi, your journey took a major shift; tell us what was your motivation during this period and the series of events that lead to you becoming a yoga influencer.
Ms. Namita Piparaiya
Yes, indeed, it was a significant shift. For more than a decade, I worked my way up across leading MNC financial services organizations. The turning point came when I was offered a promotion in my last job. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that would have accelerated my career exponentially. But even though it was the best thing that could have happened to me professionally, instead of feeling excited, I felt weighed down. Instead of feeling joy and happiness, I felt disconnected. Because accepting it would have meant committing my life, time, and energy to growing a business that I was not feeling inherently passionate about. It was then that I decided to let go of the security of a monthly paycheck and decided to pursue what I had always found myself driven towards. And that’s how I decided to invest my energy and resources in what I believe the world needs today more than anything else – peace of mind.
