Show Notes

Maneesh, the founder of Atha Yoga joins the podcast to talk about all things Yoga and shares his experience of the corporate world in Japan. Maneesh worked for Goldman Sachs in Tokyo and Hong Kong. He then left for India to pursue further studies in yoga. He returned to Japan in 2009 and has since been offering classes, retreats, workshops, corporate lectures and seminars in yoga, meditation, mindfulness and well-being. We had a very interesting conversation and talked about many things, such as Maneesh's journey from Canada to his current situation in Japan, his background and knowledge in yoga and well-being, the benefits of yoga for companies and individuals, what participants can expect from his courses, tips on how to improve health and performance at work, and much much more.
