Meet Your Trainer

Sarvesh Shashi
Founder & CEO at SARVA

Hi, I am Sarvesh Shashi, I am an Entrepreneur by day, Yogi by breath, and a Dancer and Traveller by heart.

I started my first studio in Chennai and I was a One-Man Army. I was the trainer, the housekeeper, the front desk guy, and the studio manager. But soon the aesthetics of my studio and the varied yoga practices started getting attention on social media.

This led to an overflow of customers and led me to launch two more studios in Chennai. Further, I raised more than $10M in funding from friends, family, private equity, and angel investors like Shikhar Shawan, Malaika Arora, Jennifer Lopez, Shahid Kapoor,  and Alex Rodriguez.
