You are unique. So, then why are you doing the same exercises and poses as everyone else. We had the same question when we were trying to find personalized classes to work around our injuries and abilities. We asked around and found lots of others who had the same frustrations.
In 2018, we decided to do something about it and bring our 25+ years of medical experience, yoga and 15+ years of Bollywood dance training. We started with popup classes in our community, and after all the outpouring support we opened up our studio doors in November 2019.
We’re not about fancy poses. Instead, we focus on small, and personalized classes to make your daily activities easier.
Our customers love that. Just ask them.
When I was 3, I would tag along with Visak for his dance practices.
On the day of his performance, I realized that I wasn’t going to be on stage. I started screaming and threw a fit so loud that the judge said “it’s okay, let her dance.” That’s how my first stage performance started, and I didn’t stop.
I have +17 years of experience in Bollywood, Bharatanatyam, Bhangra, Hip-hop, Contemporary, and Jazz. I'm also a Certified Personal Trainer and currently pursuing a Business degree at University of Houston. Go Coogs!
Growing up I learned Bharatanatyam, and yoga. I currently work as a Nurse Practitioner.
In 2008, a car accident left me with an injured neck and shoulder. I tried treatment but never completely recovered from it.
In 2015, I injured my shoulder again and was unable to exercise. I began gaining weight and felt depressed. My plantar fasciitis got worse. There weren’t any fitness studios that could accommodate to my injuries and go at my pace.
I wanted to be able to move my shoulder without any pain. After I started yoga again my pain faded away.
I lost 22 lbs.
By now you know how my sister stole my spotlight.
When I saw the change my mom experienced doing Yoga. I knew that there were many others that would benefit from our meaningful experience.
We originally started as Bollyshape, but after we received a strongly worded email (you can probably guess what it’s about) we changed our name to Bollycurves.
With our passion to bring something different, we created a workout based on the foundation of classical dance, western-fusion, cinematic, hip-hop, jazz, ballet and yoga. Whether you are a beginner or a professional, adult or child, there is a class for everyone.
And if, for any reason, you don't think Bollycurves is the best thing for you, let us know. We'd be more than happy to find or recommend a place that's right for you.
