Why Pilates?

Fitness, Fitness related - Anupriya kapur - November 30, 2017

As a blogger, I have been open to trying a lot of new things especially when it comes to any form of fitness activity. Even though I love CrossFit, I have been intrigued by Pilates for some time now.

What made me turn into a #YESMom

Parenting, Uncategorized - Anupriya kapur - November 7, 2017

Anyone who has followed my blog for any length of time knows that I never claim to be a great parent. For me, it is a journey of learning that helps me evolve both as a mother and as a person. One of the most valuable lessons that I have learnt is that we, as parents, are very generous with the word ‘no’ (and strangely a video I saw recently triggered this revelation).
