Directed by Manish Jha, under the instruction of Yoga instructor Shiv Kumar Mishra and produced by Shetty, the Yoga DVDs & VCDs were released in Delhi on 6 June where Shetty launched them along with other eminent personalities.
During the launch of Shilpa’s Yoga DVDs & VCDs, Shetty said, "Unlike other fitness regimes, we do not have to rely on equipments for practicing yoga; we just have to rely on our self. The objective of Shilpa’s Yoga is to make ‘practicing yoga’ simple for people. I am completely overwhelmed by the beauty and power of yoga. It is a lifestyle choice."
Adds Shemaroo Entertainment director Hiren Gada, "We wanted to give consumers anytime, anywhere access to Shilpa’s Yoga content. The DVD and Digital sales, both compliment each other. Many consumers decide to buy the complete DVD after sampling the videos on their mobile phone. Mobile operators also see value in offering this content to their consumers."
