Sarvesh Shashi is not your regular Yogi, but a high-tech CEO who is transforming the way people think about fitness.
You have been in the wellness industry for a long time. Tell us about your journey and why did you devote your life to Yoga?
I thought I could take the risk in terms of exploring different opportunity of spreading the message of Yoga, and that is when I thought of starting my own business because I did not want to get into my family business. So, without taking any help or support from them, I thought the best thing to do is start a Yoga studio. The fundamental deliverable at the foundation was Yoga, but my plan was to build a wellness ecosystem as well.
Your brainchild, Sarva, recently received investment from Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez, Malaika Arora, and Zumba Fitness LLC. How does it feel to be the sole brain behind such an incredible venture?
(Laughing) How do I say this? On one side it feels very validating on what I am doing. On the other side, it kind of makes a difference internally for me, but from an external point of view, it is also approving of what I am doing. As a Yogi, fortunately, or unfortunately, I believe in myself more than anything else. From a general perspective, I think all of the people who have believed in me, at the vision, at what Yoga could do is super exciting for me.
