Ashish Arora - yoga teacher
Ashish grew up in India in an environment where the scriptures and the Bhagavad Gita were very much part of life. He briefly practiced asana in Elementary school. He learned Sanskrit for 5 years in Middle and High school. He got back to the asana practice in Jan 2015 when his employer, Nintendo, introduced power yoga classes to their office gym. He started the practice to get fitter, coming from a sedentary lifestyle, but almost right away the practice brought him a reconnection to his roots. The same year he completed his first 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training.
After spending 16 years as an engineer in the computer and video game industry, he decided to take a break and teach yoga. The deeper he dove in, the more he was convinced this is what he wanted to do. Yoga had changed his approach to life, opening a new pathway to an almost constantly lived joy. He wanted to bring it to others.
He has been teaching weekly ever since with as many as 20 classes/week. He has maintained his own regular practice no matter how much he has taught. He has multiple 200 and 500 hour trainings with teachers ranging from Baron Baptiste to Tiffany Cruikshank(Yoga Medicine) and Annie Carpenter. He strongly believes there’s always more to learn.
Ashish teaches with a smile and brings his fun personality to his teaching, just like his own practice. He weaves in yogic philosophy while leading a challenging, but not too serious asana practice.
