"The fitness quotient contained in martial arts is tremendous. Martial art techniques provide flexibility and agility to core body muscles and increase one's stamina to a great extent," says martial arts instructor Mehul Vora, who will conduct workshops on Japanese martial arts techniques.
"Pole dancing is a fun way to stay fit," says Lavina Khanna, adding that she helps women realise that they dance for themselves and not for beholders.
"To get the most out of a workout, it's important to take in the right nutrients," adds Kunjan Kanakia, who will be holding nutrition and lifestyle counselling sessions on November 21, 22 and 23.
