HER APPROACH: Mind-Body Fitness for Life
Anjali is firm in her belief that fitness programs and workouts need to be customised for every individual.
She finds an approach of following current popular workouts or exercising to extreme limits or beyond ones’ capabilities as being detrimental and short-sighted.
She emphasizes on the importance of moving most efficiently and effectively, with minimal stress to the body.
All her teaching and programs are based on the concept of Functional Fitness:
Strength & Conditioning | Muscular Endurance & Fat-burning | Posture | Coordination | Balance | Agility
Functional Fitness done with a mind-body focus results in strong, mindful, energised movements in
Daily Living (climbing stairs, playing with your children, driving, lifting etc),
Sport, Exercise, Outdoor Activities, and more.

Sharat believes that fitness for each individual should be based on specificity and functionality, keeping in mind goals, needs and concerns of every individual.
He finds the generalized ‘one-size-fits-all’ training approach to be ineffective and harmful to a persons’ long-term health and fitness.
Sharat has a firm belief in the applicability and adaptability of Pilates as a mind-body conditioning method - for functional daily living, improved performance in sports and athletics, rehabilitation and injury-prevention.
