“When you open up space in your body, you open up space in your mind. AntiGravity techniques help people to open up and be free. You are only as young as your spine is flexible and your mind is open. AntiGravity techniques are like guzzling from the fountain of youth. I learned yoga in India in the 1990’s and it changed my entire perspective on life and my ‘art of movement’. Now, I get to bring back my own version of mind & body connection that I call AntiGravity. I hope to honor the greats before me and the beautiful legacy of yoga in doing so.”
“AntiGravity is the perfect integration of body & mind through 7 special techniques. AntiGravity® Yoga is purely a Western phenomenon that borrows from the East to bring about the union of body & mind. AntiGravity techniques allow for Zero-Compression Inversions, which decompress the spine & the mind, bringing about greater health & less pain. It is about defying the laws of physics and about staying light-hearted. Take a class and experience the ananda – joy. The AntiGravity phenomenon has finally arrived in India. See why all the Hollywood celebrities are practicing it and discover for yourself, the fountain of youth. We handle the biological cycle of our body in a very logical way. It makes people fitter, taller & better. In fact my real life story is an inspiration and my journey from illness to cutting edge fitness was indeed remarkable.”
“Your body is the only place that you have to live. So you better take very good care of it. Discover the fun quotient in exercising. if you can smile while you exercise, then that is indeed a great form exercise. Growth is never merely by share of chances, its force of working together. AntiGravity techniques create a community of individuals that come together to establish greater health – which is our true wealth. Biorhythms are different hereditary cycles regulating memory, ambition, co-ordination, endurance, temperament & emotions in human body. Each has specific function and its life cycle. These cycles begin at birth and oscillate in a steady wave pattern throughout our lives.
