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!
