Ashish grew up in New 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 (where he worked at the time). That's when he realized the possibilities yoga opened up for him. The same year he completed his 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training.
After spending 16 years of working as an engineer in the Computer and video game industry, he is now devoted to practicing/teaching yoga and to travel. He teaches 12-15 classes a week across the Seattle Metro. He loves to practice different styles of yoga, practicing about 10-15 hours/week across Seattle studios. He has practiced yoga at local studios/ashrams in cities across the US, Europe and India. He has advanced trainings with multiple yoga masters - Baron Baptiste, Tiffany Cruikshank and Annie Carpenter being the primary ones.
Ashish teaches with a smile and brings his fun personality to his teaching, just like his own practice.
Ashish 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 and to smile about it. Those moments then go on to make your entire life.
