Sarvesh Shashi is the brain behind SARVA, a wellness ecosystem built on the authentic foundations of yoga. Having seen the benefits of yoga and mindfulness first hand at an early age, Sarvesh wanted to help others in their quest for a healthier lifestyle. He started SARVA in 2013 at the young age of 21 to connect seven billion breaths.
Since then, he has dedicated his life to building a global community of physically, mentally and emotionally fit individuals. Built on the pillars of authenticity, accessibility and modernity, SARVA focuses on the 600 million people in India living under the age group of 35. With the aim to drive a cultural change in the society, Sarvesh wants to make yoga-based wellness a part of the modern lifestyle, to combat global epidemics like stress, anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, and obesity.
Under the visionary leadership of Sarvesh, SARVA has secured funding from an illustrious list of global investors - Jennifer Lopez, Malaika Arora, Alex Rodriguez, Shahid Kapoor, Mira Kapoor & Aishwaryaa R. Dhanush, Zumba® Fitness LLC, David Giampaolo, Mark Mastrov, and Bill Roedy, amongst others. With this, SARVA has become the first ever Indian start-up to attract global investors that span Hollywood, Bollywood, Sports, and Business. Putting his business acumen to work, Sarvesh is working doggedly to expand SARVA globally through two approaches – state-of-the-art studios and curated digital offerings in the mindfulness music, guided meditation, and interactive fitness space for both, the body and the mind. With SARVA, the now 27-year old yogi-turned-entrepreneur wants to teach everybody ‘Yoga with a twist’, just apt and in line with the advancement in the modern world.
A charismatic speaker with an entrepreneurial spirit, Sarvesh has shared his story and revelations at conferences like the INK conference, TEDx, UN's Youth Change Makers Conclave and has been featured by CNBC Young Turks, Bloomberg TV, Forbes, BTVi and various other channels and publications.
