The jury might still be out on which yoga form trumps others, but what you can’t deny is that it’s pretty darn good for the body. Someone might find solace in Power Yoga while others could get peace of mind from merely inhaling-exhaling, but the sense of satisfaction as we fold up the yoga mat is beyond compare!
The Ashmayu story
In hindsight, it was only a matter of time before someone brought together the best of all yoga forms, and made a session out of it. That ‘someone’ would be Naveen Sharma in this case, a corporate guy into the rigmarole of finance-marketing who gave it all up seven years ago. Naveen took to yoga to beat the ever-mounting pressures of corporate life, and he eventually got into teaching. Soon enough, he saw youngsters adopting the practice like nobody’s business as they seemed mighty impressed with the speed of the results. Thus, in 2015, with wife Sireesha, he co-founded Ashmayu Yoga & Wellness.
A package deal
Ashmayu, which means ray of light, is nothing short of a hub for all contemporary yoga forms, from Hatha Yoga to AntiGravity Yoga, Holistic Weight Loss, Hormone Yoga Therapy, Vinyasa Yoga, Power Yoga, Pre- and Post-natal Yoga and Transformational Yoga. Combining these with the benefits of meditation and pranayama, and you have the package complete.
USP: Integrated yoga sessions
No surprise then, that one of the highlights of the Academy is the Integrated Yoga session, where common forms are combined into one relaxing session. Forms include Vinyasa, Hatha flow, Power Yoga flow, pranayama, relaxation, meditation and the use of yoga props to hold the asana or improve alignment. These sessions happen every day and are open to people of all ages.
With Sireeshas long experience in therapeutic yoga and meditation, and Naveens contemporary knowledge and four very-abled, full-time yoga teachers, the Academy is flourishing, introducing the healing powers of the form to Bangalore in a holistic environment. Alternatively, they also conduct seminars for companies and kids and have a continuous flow of newer techniques like aura cleansing, karma healing, theta healing, psychic surgery among others.
