The 34-year old said that Yoga has benefitted him first-hand for recovering from career-threatening injuries, building stamina, or having concentration. It is the reason why he got in touch with Sarvesh Shah, the founder of Yoga and invested towards it. The organization and its women-oriented brand Diva Yoga came into being in 2016, having a global digital reach of over 200 million.
“I have first-hand benefited from yoga, be it while recovering from an injury, getting back into shape, building stamina or staying focused before a game…This is why when I met Sarvesh, I connected to his vision for Sarva instantly.” Dhawan stated.
Founder claims Shikhar Dhawan’s association with the brand will boost it in many ways:
The promoter of the yoga brand is confident that Shikhar Dhawan aligned himself with a consortium that focuses on holistic health and well-being, which is integral for the game of cricket. Dhawan’s association will help in making yoga modern, authentic, and inclusive.
Eight million have been raised for the venture so far with reputed Bollywood celebrities like Aishwarya Rai, Dhanush, Shahid Kapoor backing it.
