A Sound Mind with the Sounds of Folk Fitness!

While many are aware of the health aspect that Folk Fitness offers, not everybody knows that Folk Fitness routines are designed for holistic fitness and are led by mental well-being. As a part of our research and study, we realized that in most of the available workout routines, mental fitness is generally overlooked, which is very disheartening; because the mind plays a vital role in leading and ensuring a fitness routine that is rewarding as well as long lasting.

As a country, we are always looking up to the western trends forgetting about how much our own culture has to offer.

Introducing India’s First Patented Fitness Product

We live in a country like India, which is a medley of culture and art. Though disconnected in today’s age from our rich culture, it is somehow deeply rooted in our hearts that brings a complete sense of belonging towards the nation. We have a rich and varied culture evolved from different parts of the nation, carrying the flavor of that particular region. The culture brought along myriad forms of dance that were glorified over generations. The folk dances of India are vibrant and celebrate the vitality of life.
