Yoga Ashram


1) What sets you guys apart from other yoga studios?

We also offer the International Programs by Art of Living and International Association of Human Values ie. Happiness Program for adults and similar program for kids and teens. We also offer prenatal yoga, yoga for kids and beginner and advanced classes.

2) In a nut shell what are the benefits of yoga?

Yoga among its numerous benefits, can greatly enhance your awareness and alertness. It allows you to be present in the moment, be calm and work in a most productive way in the moment. This is especially important in our daily lives where we are constantly stressed and always on the go. Yoga helps to bring you back to the moment which can help you be effective at anything and everything you do

3) Can people who have no experience in yoga take classes at your studio?

Yoga is for everybody and its most definitely for those who at times feel intimidated and afraid of trying. To help those that are scared to start yoga we have beginner classes at the studio.

4) We would like your top 3 tips to anybody who wants to start yoga but unsure of how to go about it.

  1. Attend a Sri Sri Yoga Class near you as it is gentle yet works on the mind and the breath
  2. Always be with your own experience, never compare yourself to others or judge yourself. The body is changing all the time and if today you can’t do the asana, in the future you will be able to do it.
  3. Regular practice and being patient with yourself. Just start and enjoy the practice.

In Shape Ladies Fitness Club

Image result for in shape ladies fitness club

1) In Shape Ladies Fitness club isn’t just a gym, you offer group classes as well. In your group classes, how do you accommodate varying skill and fitness levels?

In Shape Ladies Fitness Club is a boutique gym which means that it has a personal approach to women’s fitness for the simple reason that all our group fitness classes are not pre-choreographed workouts and also our classes are never over crowded. This makes it easy to keep an eye out for women who need assistance or instruction during the class. All our classes are designed by a team of very experienced trainers who have great insight and knowledge of the local demography we specifically cater for. Women of different fitness levels can attend all our classes because we can very easily modify exercises on the spot without disrupting the flow of the workout. Women feel that they are continuously receiving the personal care needed to motivate and encourage them to be active, fit and healthy.

2) As a personal trainer, how important is nutrition to you in creating a client’s regimen? Do you create a meal plan for them or just guide them on the right foods to eat?

As a personal trainer it is my duty to teach, instruct and educate. That means that anyone embarking on a fitness lifestyle or otherwise, nutrition is the corner stone of being healthy and fit. A properly structured nutrition plan is an essential and integral part of achieving specific goals whether it is fat loss or building lean muscle mass.

Macro nutrients, portion control and food choices are discussed to ensure the proper implementation of a healthy clean diet which is directed towards achieving the desired goal!!

Every client goes through a Body Composition Analysis that allows us to gauge fat%, Free Fat Mass% and (BMR) Basel Metabolic Rate which we use to create the perfectly balanced nutrition plan that gives the client a basic general guidelines on when to eat and what to eat!

3) What are your thoughts about organic food? What are your thoughts on a vegan diet? Do these really help in weight loss and fitness?

Going organic or following a vegan diet has no impact on weight loss and fitness! It is a personal choice. As long as the same guidelines are followed to create the optimal nutrition plan, then weight loss and general fitness will be achieved.

4) You’ve recently started group personal training classes. What was the motivation behind that and how does this help women?

Actually, it was only after I researched it and found that it is the fastest growing fitness trend in the rest of the world but unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be something that has been picked up in Dubai.

It is both cost effective, fun, motivating and gets amazing results. Groups are usually between 3-6 people and the trainer does not participate in the workout as in group fitness classes but focuses all her attention on the group in hand! Essentially it is “Personal Training” at one third of the cost.

5) What are 3 essential exercises you suggest for all clients?

When it comes to essential exercises it really isn’t easy to determine but I would say the plank for core stabilization, the push up for upper body strength and squats for the lower body!

6) In your 25 years of fitness knowledge and experience, what are a few misconceptions that people have towards fitness?

I think the BIGGEST misconception is the fact that the fitness industry is centred around weight loss!! Fitness in a nutshell is about how the body functions and the main components of fitness are Muscular Strength, Cardio Respiratory Endurance, Flexibility and Body Composition. So if a person successfully over time builds all these components to the required levels and couples it with a sound nutrition plan then we can confidently say that gradual realistic fat loss is possible.

The next misconception is that weight training creates bulky muscles, which is a virtual impossibility in natural body building. This is mainly because women don’t have enough testosterone levels. Also, female hormones are not considered very muscle bulking material!

When we workout we CAN”T spot reduce fat. Where we store FAT or LOSE it is predisposed by our genetics. Ladies! Fat can’t change into muscle because they are completely different cells! You can lose fat and build lean muscle mass.

All women must remember that a muscle that isn’t targeted through resistance training will look like a tyre with a puncture flat and flabby. Whereas, a trained muscle will look tensed, pumped up and shaped like a tyre that’s good to go! I personally hate the “punctured” look! Give me “pumped” look anyday!

Mad About Dance Studio


1) Tell us a bit about MAD and what sets you guys apart from other studios

MAD (Mad About Dance) is a personalized and light-hearted approach to building activity into your lifestyle. We call it the perfect mash up of having fun and working out. We realize that if you have your favorite music going on while you’re working out in a non-gym environment (I mean a large open space, plenty of light, easy parking space, good location) and with a help of a good trainer, this can do wonders to your mind and body. That’s where we come in.

2) What are the benefits of dancing?

Benefits of dancing are endless. For the body – benefits include weight loss, toning, strengthening the core and muscles, increase stamina and improves flexibility and blood circulation. For the mind – It’s one of the best natural anti-depressants and can be very therapeutic too.

3) How is fitness incorporated in the dances?

When we teach technical classes such as contemporary form, regular warm up and stretching sessions are a part of the class. Ofcourse teaching dance is physical movement which done regularly is part of a fitness routine.

Having said that, we have specialized sessions for those who are primarily interested in taking classes for fitness or weight loss reasons such as Zumba, MADx and private lessons.

4) You have fitness specific dance classes such as Zumba, MADx, personal training sessions & Bhangra. Please explain what these classes are and how they are different?

Other than the dance workshops and classes that we teach, we also have dance –fitness programs that are targeted to losing weight for any age and any size person with any stamina level.

Zumba is good cardio. We also have our own programs such as MADx (the Bollywood fitness) that is 30 minutes cardio, and 20 minutes floor exercises or weights. Its almost losing 400 to 600 calories in that one hour. Which is quite a lot! We regularly do Bhangra workshops that’s again extremely high energy dancing on Bhangra music for non stop 1.5 hours straight.

That’s not it – we have one to one personal trainings to create a program according to one’s body needs. This is for those who do not want a group session and want a target or goal that they want to achieve in less time.

5) What are your top 3 tips for people who want to try a dance fitness class but are nervous?

Tip 1: When you walk in your first day, don’t bother putting up with others. Do as much as you can and enjoy the process. The fact that you made it to class is your win.

Tip 2: It’s happened with me many times when I feel that all others are much better than me. Why should I go anyway? But I realized that others don’t matter. Its our inner doubts that serve as a barrier. So ignore your inner demon and just go for it! There is a 99% chance you won’t regret your decision afterwards.

Tip 3: Dress appropriately. For eg- not having sport shoes, a water bottle or not wearing a sport Bra can affect your mood and elevate your fear in the class. If you go prepared, you will be able to focus on the class and improve over time. But most importantly remember to have a good time!

SKY is an institution of self-knowledge apart from all other stretches and postures that is generally understood at Yoga centers. What is self-Knowledge?
