Artistic Yoga & Pilates is not just a hobby or an evening thing to do, it’s a cure for me. My name is Kuresh Dola (+965 99045667) I work as a field salesman. I drive almost 5-7 hours a day, due to which I was suffering from lower back pain L4 & L5. I tried a lot of home remedies, Islamic sharia methods, Chinese stretch massage, honey bee sting therapy, fire massage, the list is never ending, but all those cures or remedies were temporary, after a few weeks’ months or even years the pain used to revive with a bigger bang. 2018 Eid Al Adha I was walking on crutches and was almost about to go for surgery when I was recommended yoga.
I found AYP as one of the most well known & experienced in its craft. I started yoga as the last resort before coming under the knife. The decision paid off, it proved to be the best decision of my life WOW, my back pain slowly started fading away, initially it was tough as my back was in a pretty bad shape but slow & steady it showed results, I have been attending AYP classes from more than a year and it has become an addiction for me now. AYP has some mind-blowing teachers who are excellent in their art, very friendly & takes good care of their pupils especially damaged ones like me. I would blindly recommend AYP to each and everyone of you even if you don’t have any health issues. It’s the BEST …. Period!!! Thanks, Sugandha & all the very best to you… now and always.
“I am a very busy professional and before I attended classes in Artistic Yoga, I always felt tired and unhappy. It seemed like something was always missing, but I didn’t know what,”
“One day one of my friend’s told me that Yoga postures and relaxation will do a world of good and I decided to give it a try” I was looking for yoga classes near Salmiya Garden. I started looking and got hold of Ms. Suganda’s number, She was very professional and welcomed me to the class which gave me confidence to attend.
“I arrived at the class on 2nd February 2017 and positioned my mat in a way that I would be able to have a good view of what was going on and made myself comfortable. The atmosphere in the room was very calm and peaceful and I instantaneously felt at ease.
With time Iphysically felt comfortable and stronger and relaxed too. Mentally I felt an inner calm and a connection with the universe. Through various practices of Yoga and diet changes, breathing and postures as well as the application of basic moral and ethical principles, I gained a greater understanding and acceptance of my life and the world around me,”
“Today, I am a happier person. Life still continues to throw its challenges at me – there are ups and downs, but Artistic Yoga has certainly given me the tools to deal effectively with life. When I joined the class I was 70kg and by now I am 65kg which gives me more confidence to attend classes regularly.
It’s not only about reducing weight… I believe it’s more than reducing weight and gaining more confidence in ourselves.
That is why I can say that Artistic Yoga is “more than just a WORK place”
I have managed to lose 15 kg over a period of time and it has been a good feeling to look in better shape than ever before.
Before I joined AYP, my weight was 89 kg and I felt out of place looking over weight and not active. On looking for options to lose weight build strength, I found my right place at AYP.
First few classes it was really hard and difficult and was on verge of giving up. It is when there was support and motivation that I received from couple of new friends at AYP that encouraged me to continue it.
I started to lose weight and feeling good It wasn’t just the weight loss in kilos, but also how flexible and active I became from practicing Yoga and Pilates.
I feel proud to be a part of AYP family as I have been given the opportunity to perform on stage on various occasions. It was also a good feeling to be a part of #LoveYourself campaign.
Last but not the least it was a golden opportunity to have attend the class with celebrity trainer Mr. Mahesh.
I want to thank Artistic Yoga and Pilates team – Suganda Menon, Subish Kannoli, Santhosh, Sherihan and many friends which I have made who have always been good motivators in this journey in guiding me and being a solid support throughout.It has been a great experience.
When I joined AYP, I was a shy, timid man who was looking for a means to get fit. But within the span of 3 months, I had lost 8 kilos. I also felt more confident, energized and my mind was always alert and sharp. I felt great.
