Namita Thapar says yoga and meditation have made her a ‘better’ person, increased productivity

Namita Thapar, who became a household name in India earlier this year after her television debut on the reality show ‘Shark Tank India’, decided to mark International Women’s Day on Wednesday during a health retreat.

The executive director of Emcure Pharmaceuticals urged people to explore the “power of yoga”, “meditation” and the “sattvic diet”. The Sattvik diet is a diet that includes seasonal vegetables and fruits, nuts and seeds, vegetable oils and proteins.

The 40-year-old businesswoman and investor said the lifestyle has helped her become a “calmer” and “better” person. Dressed in a crisp white kurta pajama and dupatta, she also shared a photo of herself from the retreat – surrounded by lush green trees.

Urging everyone to start early, she also said yoga and meditation can help boost productivity.

“Learn to balance the shark and the dolphin within you,” she concluded.

Thapar, alongside a photo of herself doing the perfect handstand, said her fitness routine helps keep her calm.

To get the most out of her workout, she does a mix of yoga, cross-training, aerobics and evening walks.

Last month, the pharmaceutical industry boss revealed that she is a vegetarian and abstains from drinking alcohol. In addition to following a gluten-free diet, she prefers to eat on time and sleep early most of the time.

She added, “I don’t believe in strict diets because eating well is important for energy and great skin.”

Besides Thapar, the show featured big names like Ashneer Grover from BharatPe, Lenskart Founder Peyush Bansal, Anupam Mittal from People Group, Sugar Cosmetics Founder Vineeta Singh, Aman Gupta from boAt Lifestyle and MamaEarth Founder Ghazal Alagh, as possible investors (called Sharks).

Hosted by TV actor and VJ Rannvijay Singha, the first season of the popular commercial reality series kicked off on December 20, 2021 and ended on February 4, 2022.

The reality show had a total of 36 episodes.
