“My personal journey with fitness and wellness began over 2 decades ago when I was a fresh-faced teenager. Over the years, I’ve witnessed the benefits of fitness and holistic living first-hand so when I met Sarvesh, we could instantly connect to his vision for SARVA, “ said Shahid Kapoor in a statement.
The actor added that in today’s age where stress, anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, and obesity are real challenges that so many individuals are grappling with, he believes that through SARVA, the couple will want to actively work towards improving the quality of life of people who need an intervention.
“For the last few years, I’d been toying with the idea of backing ideas and ventures which I felt strongly passionate about. With Sarvesh, what started as a casual meet-up, orchestrated through a dear friend, quickly turned into a conversation of how we could jointly spread the message of yoga-based wellness to everybody,” Mira Kapoor said.
Founded by the 27-year-old entrepreneur Sarvesh Shashi, Sarva is a chain of yoga and fitness studios and also has digital community. Sarva is currently present in over 91 studios clustering in Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru along with other Indian cities.
Chennai-based Sarva has over 55,000 customers and 220 employees. Part of the funding is aimed at helping the company expand its footprint. It is also evaluating a global entry into the UK, US and Middle East.
