Women’s Day: Interview of Ms. Namita Piparaiya, Woman Entrepreneur, Yoga and Ayurveda Lifestyle Specialist and Founder of Yoganama.
1. What is your wellness philosophy?
Namita Piparaiya: My wellness philosophy is to always look at the bigger picture. Often, we tend to look at our physical, mental, spiritual, and even financial health as separate, isolated entities.
We may compromise our physical and mental health in pursuit of finances or compromise our spiritual health in pursuit of ideal body image, or suffer an impact on our finances due to physical ailments.
Ayurveda teaches us that everything is connected and we are deeply influenced by our environment. That’s why true wellness is not just being healthy, but being able to go through the ups and downs of life with greater awareness and equanimity.
And the best way to do that is through the practice of moderation. But practicing moderation is easier said than done; that’s where Yoga and Ayurveda can help us.
Yoga helps us develop self-control and become more mindful. And infusing Ayurveda principles can help us understand the strengths and weaknesses of our inherent nature to better navigate our everyday life.
That’s why Yoga, Ayurveda, and a solid philosophy that we identify with can transform our wellness journey. For this very reason, these three form the core pillars of Yoganama.
2. Your success mantra?
Namita Piparaiya: Identify your core purpose, what drives you every morning, what you inherently feel passionate about, and then work on it, develop and enhance it to make your contribution to the world.
If you start looking at success as doing what fulfils you and what also benefits the world, you’ll have a much better time.
Because success is in consistency, in showing up again and again repeatedly, tirelessly, and wholeheartedly. It’s a lot more efficient when all this energy is going behind something that already inspires you.
3. A lesson you learned from making a mistake?
Namita Piparaiya: Listen to others – along with a great passion for a subject, also comes frustration at views that are different from yours.
When you’re strongly invested, it can be harder to listen to different viewpoints and change your course or vision.
But for a business to be wholesome, it needs more ideas, and it needs to be looked at from different perspectives. The more we listen, the more we learn, the better we grow, and the fewer mistakes we will make.
4. Any piece of advice for all the women out there?
Namita Piparaiya: Trust your instincts, have faith in yourself and be uninhibited in pursuit of life. Women in general face significant judgment, restrictions, and criticism. It’s important to not let all that weigh you down.
5. What has been your biggest pride?
Namita Piparaiya: Every day is a source of pride when I see my students progress in their journey, feeling better, healthier, and calmer.

That said, if I look at some of the milestones over the past few years, one of the biggest achievements is Yoganama TV – an online platform where you can access hundreds of my Yoga, Pranayama, and Meditation videos.
