Kashi Azad


I am Kashi, and I bring you Persian Yoga (Pahlavani) from my ancestral homeland and the heartland of the Persians. I am both proud and happy to share this ancient and unique physical conditioning art form with you.

Persian Yoga has been shrouded in mystery for many many years...women were not allowed to practice it, and only a select few were initiated into this secretive art. I am breaking down these barriers and for the first time opening the doors to this old world, yet sophisticated and advanced, physical art form.

I come to you from Iran by way of Sweden. I have spent my life in training, competing and coaching, and I am a martial artist at heart. I enjoy the challenge of pushing my abilities and senses to their limits; not only focusing on specific skills but on total fitness of the body and the being. I'm a certified group exercise (Cert III) trainer, Electrical Engineer, MBA graduate, and currently a Chiropractic student.

Persian Yoga focuses on the development of skills required for Martial Arts, it was the conditioning system of the Aryan warrior casts from a bygone era. Persian Yoga is equally relevant today and I'm here to share its benefits and secrets with you.

The Persian Yoga story began in 2007, when I visited my native mother and father land, Iran, undertook the Persian Yoga Teacher Training Program with the International Zurkhaneh Sports Federation (IZSF), and became their Development Officer in Oceania.
