Today, the world celebrates International Yoga Day. The age old technique of exercise that originated in India has millions of practitioners the world over. One celeb couple that swears by yoga is Brent Goble and Aashka Goradia. In fact, Brent Goble has opened a yoga school in Goa and is a certified teacher with over 1,300 hours of training. BollywoodLife caught up for a chat with the two. Brent told us, "I was a performer for 12 years. I needed some kind of discipline that would take me out of that zone. Yoga worked wonderfully for me. It fitted perfectly in my life. It is truly special for me."
Both Aashka and Brent love for Yoga over other forms of exercise. Brent said, "What I love is that you get to synchronise your breath with movement. It is low impact and suits everyone. You do not harm your joints by doing yoga. And finally, it revolutionises the way you align your body and mind. It also benefits you mentally." Aashka Goradia endorsed her beau’s theory. "I had a cervical pain in my back that was kind of chronic. Plus, there was pain in my wrist as well. They have completely vanished. My mind is a lot more composed than before," she said. We have seen the couple doing some mind-blowing asanas on Instagram that are a sheer inspiration.
Aashka Goradia reveals her favourite pose is Shirshasana aka the inversion pose. "The beauty of yoga is that you can experience every movement calmly. It does not have the adrenaline rush of a gym, but you can feel the emotion in a very holistic manner," said Aashka. Talking about Yoga in the West, Brent said, "The way people perceive yoga in the West is not much different from what it is India. When I was learning, I was fortunate to find studios that stuck to the original roots of yoga."
Well, health is wealth and yoga is surely a path to it.
