BEIJING http://www.salehydroflaskcupcheap.com/ , Oct. 17 (Xinhua) -- When Subbulakshmi Velusamy started learning yoga in her home city of Chennai in southern India more than a decade ago, the Indian graduate in physics looked for no greater benefits than enjoying good health naturally.
But today, beyond expectations, the ancient Indian holistic system of well-being has given her a flourishing career, taken her on an adventure abroad, and turned her into a China-India ambassador.
"Back home in India, people are amazed that I live on my own in China," said the 37-year-old Cheap Hydro Flask Coffee , who works as an assistant professor of yoga at the China-India Yoga College at the Yunnan Minzu (Nationalities) University in Kunming, the picturesque southwest Chinese city not far from India.
"'How do you manage,' they ask me, 'especially when the language is so difficult?' I tell them, people speak the language of kindness there. Everyone I have met has been so kind and friendly, going out of the way to help," said Velusamy.
Velusamy recalls one occasion when she asked for directions. The people she approached, unable to communicate through language Cheap Hydro Flask 20 OZ , walked her to their destination almost 1 km away.
Her China adventure started following an agreement between the Chinese and Indian governments, which led to the opening of the yoga college in 2015. As part of the agreement, two Indian teachers were to be employed at the college to teach the practical as well as philosophical aspects of yoga, and Velusamy was selected by a panel after a grueling interview in New Delhi.
By that time she was no longer just dabbling in yoga, she had obtained a PhD in yoga as a therapy for treating hypothyroidism, especially in women. Hypothyroidism is a condition created by low levels of the thyroid hormone, whose effects could range from a slower heartbeat to fatigue and depression.
"I was learning more about yoga practices, delving into its philosophy and Indian spiritualism Cheap Hydro Flask 24 OZ , and I wanted to share what I had learned," she said. "So when I was selected for the job in China, it was like a dream coming true. I had this larger society which I could introduce our Indian culture to."
She was amazed at the popularity of yoga in Kunming. "The interest is growing by the day," she said. "There are so many yoga centers and studios in Kunming, with most of them run by Chinese teachers."
Her students at the university are Chinese and she said she is also overwhelmed by their interest. "I don't think I have seen so much interest in India," she said. "And it's not only among youngsters."
On Saturdays, the college hosts a free yoga session open to the public and Velusamy said people in their 50s and 60s flock to it. Besides her classes, Velusamy likes to display other aspects of Indian culture Cheap Hydro Flask 40 OZ , such as Indian clothes and cuisine.
"In class, I always make it a point to wear salwar-kameez," she said, referring to the traditional baggy trousers worn by Indian women with a long tunic and a scarf. On the day Xinhua spoke with her, she was dressed in an eye-catching yellow tunic.
On special occasions, she brings out her saris, the traditional Indian wear that consists of one long unstitched swath of cloth that could be up to nine yards (27 feet) long and is worn draped skillfully around the body in a variety of ways.
Southern India, from where Velusamy comes Cheap Hydro Flask 32 OZ , is famous for its silk and cotton, in rich, vibrant colors.
While to many foreigners, Indian food means curry first and foremost. Tamil Nadu, Velusamy's home state, has a distinctly different cuisine, which uses lots of coconut and lentils. She has introduced her friends in Kunming to the dosa, a crispy paper-thin wrap that can come with a spicy potato filling Cheap Hydro Flask , and is eaten dipped in a tangy soup and a special sauce or chutney.
"My students are especially interested in healthy Indian food that doesn't use oil," she said. "They like the 'khichdi' (a dish that is a complete meal in itself, made by boiling rice with lentils and vegetables). We share recipes and that is another form of cultural exchange."
