Krishna Prakash, Founder at Shrimath Yoga
Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
Krishna Prakash: There was a dire need to fill the gap between ashram and academic approach to learning Yoga so that discerning seekers can come together to study traditional Yoga in small groups where personalized learning is possible.
Great Companies: What are the various services provided by Shrimath Yoga?
Krishna Prakash: Yoga is a system beyond just postures as it is a way of life. We offer international certification for Yoga & Yoga Nidra courses across levels. To take this holistic knowledge to corporate we conduct workshops on Stress Management, Emotional Resilience, Creativity, Work Life Balance, Building Immunity, Self Leadership etc to individuals & corporate houses.
Great Companies: What makes Shrimath Yoga different from hundreds of other Yoga Training schools?
We take only 6 to 10 students per batch, whether it is online or offline. We do not engage in any other commercial activity like selling products as our only focus is offering authentic Yoga how it was taught in ancient Gurukul system. We encourage our course participants to daily work at the rural school and Shrimath farm, these activities along with silence during meal times helps participants internalize Yoga as a way of life.
Great Companies: What are the struggles and challenges you face?
Krishna Prakash: To understand the ever changing space of social media and to stay relevant in those spaces so that we could reach the right audience
Great Companies: How do you plan to grow in the future? What does 5 years down the line look like for Shrimath Yoga?
Krishna Prakash: In 2023 we would cross 12 years and is a milestone for any organization that guides people in their inner journey. Our idea of growth is depth and width as we are clear with our batch sizes. We would have converted many of our workshops to on demand learning. We also would have moved many of our workshops and courses to donation based than fee based
Great Companies: If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?
