Throughout the month of May – also known as Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month – the Rams will be spotlighting four Certified #RamsHouse small businesses that belong to the Asian American and Pacific Islander community. Up next: BollyPop (website: http://www.bollypopla.com/).
MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. – The class begins with a gratitude prayer to mother earth.
"Thank you God, thank you teachers, thank you parents," the eight young students end the prayer with as they recite it with their instructor, before beginning sun salutations – a 14-pose yoga sequence.
Whether virtually, or more recently in person with Los Angeles beginning to open back up, it's the standard start to one of BollyPop founder and artistic director Aakansha Maheshwari's Bollywood lessons. The instruction offers not only a stimulating environment, but a way for its students to share Indian culture experiences and teachings together.
