Our Vision

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.

Yasmin Karachiwala

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.

Why do Pilates and Dance?

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.
