Power Quotes From The Show

"Yoga is about liberation. Yoga understands that we are all divine beings and we are also a product of our imprinting. Yoga is designed to allow you to break free of those chains of your human conditioning."- Niraj Naik

"Everything is divine and we choose to either tune into it or not. That choice comes from your level vibrational energy of L-O-V-E. The more love you have for yourself and others, the more connected you'll be to this divine energy." - Niraj Naik

"Heavy emotions such as fear, anger, rage, rage, and guilt are what really binds us to the earth in a way that we end up in survival mode. Specifically, guilt is a really, really terrifying emotion to experience for a long period of time and it can just paralyze you. If we can change that emotional state without using drugs, antidepressants, or even having to resort to psychedelics and do it naturally through our own body instead, then we're getting somewhere. That's what I focused on through pranayama, yoga, and Ayurveda." - Niraj Naik

"What is the best thing that the yogis have done for us? They taught us how to have an off switch for stress which is the breath and the exhale. By learning how to exhale properly, hold your breath, and control your breath, in certain ways, we actually learn how to control the entire physiology of our mind." - Niraj Naik

"The exhaled breath is our off switch for stress. By learning how to control, hold,  and properly exhale our breath, we can actually discover how to manage the entire physiology of our mind." - Niraj Naik

About Niraj Naik

Niraj NaikNiraj Naik is a qualified pharmacist who comes from a background of working long hours for several years as a community pharmacist.  Becoming a certified “legal drug dealer” at the ripe age of 24, he got to witness first-hand, many clients going home with shopping bags full of drugs each month, rarely getting better and usually going on to suffer from other diseases. He also learnt of the debilitating side effects of the prescription medication which drove many of the patients to have to take more and more drugs to ease the side effects.

Curious to find ways to improve his own health he attended several health seminars and discovered an in-depth approach on how to reach optimum health and vitality by understanding the true origin of disease and how to prevent it. After experiencing great benefits with his own health, Niraj was motivated to devise a scheme to see if he could also help his suffering patients. He incorporates a lifestyle plan called his "healthy shopping lists' that includes simple food swaps, tools, and websites to support their specific condition.

Niraj is now a professional musician, holistic health expert, and entrepreneur. He runs several successful websites that help others who suffer from stress-related, chronic diseases through his self-composed, captivating meditation music, and online courses. Niraj has composed music for healing centres, spas, and therapists worldwide.
