Sarina Jain's Kid Stuff

When Sarina Jain, the Masala Bhangra fitness expert, put out a casting call for kids for a bhangra workout video, 145 children turned up. This was whittled down to four kids – two Indian, one White and one African-American. Together the four kids do the bhangra moves with Jain (Yes, she’s been called the Indian Jane Fonda) in a new video designed to make children more active.

“I decided to focus on kids for this video because there are too many kids becoming obese in this country and not doing anything about it,” she says. “I thought I would create a fun dance workout for them which they can do at home.  It is also a great way to bond with parents, friends and family, doing something active together.”

Jain hopes the workout video will get children moving and learning some bhangra moves in the bargain: ” I loved working with the kids. They are like sponges and absorb everything adults do and if  it can be a positive influence on them, then that is great!” Since many of her clients are non Indians, she feels it’s a good way for children not only to stay active, but learn a new culture as well. What can one say to that, except balle, balle!
