'I loved fitness, but I had no intention of giving gyaan about it. I wanted to be a travel blogger instead. It cost me nothing to blog about fitness. No special clothing. I wore my old jockey leggings and a sports bra that was probably six years old. I did not need a special place; I did yoga at home. I didn't have the money to spend on clothes or make up. I only needed the intention to give it all to my mat and some YouTube videos for help,' she says.
