Ashish Arora

Ashish grew up in Delhi, India where he briefly practiced yoga in Elementary school and learned Sanskrit in Middle and High school. He did not practice yoga again till he went to a yoga class in January 2015 in his office gym at Nintendo. That's when he realized the possibilities yoga opened up for him, both physically and mentally. The same year he completed his 200-hour Teacher Training at Shakti Vinyasa Yoga, following it up with a 4 month mentoring program. He has also completed Level 1 training with Baron Baptiste and weekend intensives with Anna Forrest (Forrest yoga) and Kino Macgregor (Ashtanga). After spending 16 years of working as an engineer in the Computer and video game industry, he is currently taking a sabbatical and spending his time practicing/teaching yoga and to travel. He loves to practice different styles of yoga, taking about 12 classes/week across Seattle. In the last year, he has practiced yoga in a few places across the world - Delhi, Bali, Rome, Edinburgh, New York, LA, Boston, Miami, DC and more.
 
 
He likes to practice with a smile and tries to bring his fun personality to his teaching. At the same time, you should come in expecting to push your edge. He would like you to be open to the possibilities which open up on and off your mat when you push that edge. A strong example from his personal life being how yoga helped him get over his fear of water by getting him in control of his breath, which then let him explore scuba diving.

 

He strongly believes that happiness cannot be achieved by just tying it to big goals, but it comes from finding something in the current moment to be happy about and to smile about it. Those moments then go on to make your entire life.
