From Our Founder
My Yogic journey began as a genuine effort to discover an organic, simpler and sustainable fitness path than most other options available out there in the world presently. I have spent past many years on researching and planning the right mix of yoga workouts and yogic diets for the varying needs of the individuals. Coupling the workouts and diet is the only way going forward to a achieve truly healthy life.
I would like you all to know my story of a completely transformative experience that took place during past couple of years in my life. Three years ago, I fell into the spiral trap of unrelated ailments and underwent myriads of medical consultations and treatments for months. During this period, I went through what so many people often go through: multiple, seemingly unrelated yet compounding, health issues. I found myself in a chaotic state of being over-medicated, unimproved, and completely out of balance with the natural rhythms of my own body and life.
With the zeal to heal myself, I did not give up and started a journey to find a natural and sustainable solution to my intermittent ailments. I shifted my focus from medicine to Yogic Practices and started experimenting with yogic ways to heal mind, body, and spirit. I adopted routine yoga workouts and prepared various recipes of cooked and raw yogic foods. The subject became so dear to me that I studied the healing effects that the various natural foods have on our body and ended up inventing a whole new menu of my own delicious recipes which are miraculously healing. What I learned in these past years has not only allowed me to regain my health but has also promoted a greater sense of youth and vitality that I had not felt in years. My illuminating experience has inspired me to share what I have learned with others and make world a healthier and happier place.
Trust me 30-40 mins of yoga a day, can totally transform your life in a big way, therefore I encourage you all to be a Yogi, a TruYogi.
Driven by the vision to bring uninterrupted health and happiness to one and all, we are here to motivate people to pursue an organic and sustainable lifestyle by integrating well-researched Yogic Practices in their lives. A less known fact is that Yoga has the power to prevent and cure a great deal of the ailments in the world. With our deep knowledge of the yogic practices, we promise happiness and peace for all, 24/7 * 365.
May it be your body, mind or soul, “Let Yoga Be Thy Medicine!”
Our mission is to inspire, educate, and develop as many yogis as possible all around the world. After observing and experiencing the half-baked yogic practices being offered everywhere, we are both surprised and disappointed as to why Yogic Practices have not been well-structured and why Yogic Diet, which is a vital component of a healthy life, has not been made a part of the big Yoga Movement. We believe that without integrating Yogic Diets into the customized Yoga Workouts, you will not be able to achieve your desired health goals.
We are determined to make the world look at Yoga as not only a way to ensure physical fitness, but to know that yoga is also the greatest tool available to the humanity for bringing harmony among mind, body, and spirit. During your Yogic Journey, a great deal of our focus would be on providing you the right Yogic Diet to lead a fulfilling life.
As they say in Ayurveda:
“When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use,
When the diet is right, medicine is of no need.”
