At SARVA, each of our lives by the principle of ‘More life per breath’ and we want to induct more individuals into our community of mindful and holistic wellness, especially the 600 million people in India living under the age group of 35.”

Shahid Kapoor stated, “My personal journey with fitness and wellness began over two 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. Through SARVA, Mira and I want to actively work towards improving the quality of life of people who need an intervention.”
