About Ashish Yoga Fitness
Message from the founder
Life is a balancing act. Between work, relationships, parental duties, staying fit, academic efforts, maintaining friendships, community involvement and personal fulfillment. It’s a wonder to find someone who is peaceful and happy now-a-days. We soldier forward with all our obligations and commitments because we have to, and in most cases, we want to. But when life gets so hectic the stress of it all impacts our mental and physical well-being. It’s time to take action.
” Yoga is a way of aligning. The geometry of your system with the cosmic geometry. It’s a phenomenal process. This is not a exercise, this is not twist and turns. This is not a stretching. It is about understanding the geometry of our system, a way to harmonize body, mind and the soul. Regular practice of Yoga not only shapes one’s body but also gives shape to his life helping him lead it in a healthy, successful and peaceful way. I believe, “Yoga is a Way of Life”
