About Shay and Urban Monk:
“I’m Shay Vasudeva, Founder and Head Instructor at Urban Monk. Here is what I do and why I do it!
I grew up as a competitive athlete, playing tennis and softball on a national level. I started training martial arts at the age of 10. By the time I was in college, due to personal life circumstances and traumatic experiences, I had a multitude of injuries and health conditions.
These injuries left me physically and emotionally depleted. Softball was the joy of my life and I played on a Travel Team. Even after a traumatic incident that resulted in a dislocated wrist, I chose to continue to play. As a result, I ended up needing a major surgery on my right wrist. I was in a cast for almost one year and physical therapy for multiple years.
I was on an emotional low and was prescribed medication for pain. I started eating food for emotional gratification. The result of my poor eating habits, irregular routine with my pain medicines, the now sedentary lifestyle as well as side effects of certain medications was enormous weight gain. By the time I was 22, I was a size 14 and close to 160 pounds! At 5’2,” these are unhealthy figures!”
