New York City! -The high energy, Indian dance workout, known as Masala Bhangra is sweeping the nation, but has more solemn roots. It's that same drive that inspired Sarina Jain to create the workout, after losing her father to a massive heart attack at the age of 47.
"I created Masala Bhangra for two reasons," said Sarina Jain, better known as the Jane Fonda of India, "To bring the Indian culture into the fitness industry and to make my father proud." Surendra Jain, Sarina's father, came to America in the 1970's to pursue a better life for his family-a lovely wife and two daughters. As a civil engineer, having studied at Utah State University, he instilled in his family the importance of an education, up until his sudden death in 1994.
"Masala Bhangra is my way of showing my father that his life was not in vain," Reminisces Jain. "I haven't forgotten where I come from, and I share it every day through fitness. My only wish is that he could see it flourish."
