As a homegrown brand, SARVA has been going all-out to bring the benefits of yoga to everyone from Hollywood to Haridwar – in an all-new avatar. While the brand has already been instrumental in making yoga and mindfulness fun, it pivoted to newer heights with its initiatives recently.

Their initiatives in the wake of the pandemic and lockdown to offer live online classes are highly commendable. It is always a pleasure to work with brands that focus their work around customer pain points and come up with appropriate solutions. I hope to utilize my experience and help the brand catapult further.”

"During a crucial time in human history, SARVA rose to the challenge and cemented its role in the post-Pandemic world as a leading provider of health and wellness. I decided to join SARVA - as a member as well as a business advisor - because I recognize the immense potential of this unique brand to deliver the benefits of yoga and mindfulness to a global audience," said Chang. 

Gupta commented, “Driving growth for brands and improving experiences are two things that have always excited me. While SARVA is already a hugely successful brand in what it has been doing, I hope to help them take yoga and the resultant experience to every household pan India and globally. Their mindfulness and meditation services are also another area where I would focus on. I am happy to be a part of the team.”

SARVA’s offerings address millennial fitness needs and the brand is working towards connecting 7 billion breaths.
