We want to transform your mind and body by teaching you the correct technique of movement. When you feel movement in your body connected through your powerhouse, every kind of other activity you perform in life gets more connected. The way you move through life will change, the way you perceive your body will change. And your body will change as a bi-product of this evolution.
The PAD brings celebrity master instructor Yasmin Karachiwala’s mantra to the UAE. She is responsible for popularizing Pilates in India, as she was the first BASI certified Pilates instructor in India. She teaches Bollywood celebrities such as Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt, and is largely responsible for their dedication towards fitness. But the exceptionality of her brand does not come from the celebrities she teaches, but her drive to constantly learn more herself. She started her career with a course in the USA and earned her group fitness trainer certification from the ‘American Council of Exercise’. She founded her studio “Body Image” in Mumbai, India where she became popular when Kareena Kapoor Khan became her first celebrity client.read more
Here are two short videos - one explains how the world feels about Pilates today and the second explains the History of Pilates, where it came from, and the importance and relevance of it in today’s day and age.
While Pilates targets and effects every single muscle in the body, it does not provide you with a cardiovascular workout. That’s where dance comes in! Our dance classes through the week are a fun mix of high intensity choreography which will get your blood pumping and leave you with a well-rounded, full-body workout.

“I was a newbie at Pilates and got bored easily, but working out with Shazia transformed my body. I carry forward these changes into my everyday posture at work or in the playground with the kids!
Shazia and Rupesh are very knowledgeable. Over 25 classes of pushing my limits, I have had no injuries at all. I absolutely love my workouts at The PAD and recommend the studio to everyone- it doesn’t matter which stage of your fitness journey you are in.”
"Pilates is something my body needed for a long time. Pilates not only helps to strengthen your body, but also improves flexibility and lengthens the muscle.I have always had stiff hip issues and flexibility problems. Shaazia helped me with my postures and breathing techniques. She and the instructors at The PAD also helped me gain core strength, become more flexible and improve my overall balance.
Its been a few months of workout at The PAD and my experience has been so much fun, challenging and at the same time extremely motivating.
And to add to all of this, they have a dance studio with classes for different dance styles. Perfect way to come let loose and dance your worries away."
