Tonight’s Amazing and Incredible Masala Bhangra Workout Story

Filed under: Adventures & Misadventures, Workouts & Workout Videos — Carol @ 10:35 pm

So, about my incredible first-time ever Masala Bhangra class at NYHRC… I first saw a Masala Bhangra workout video back when Time Warner Cable offered the free Exercise TV channel several years go, while I was surfing for workout videos to try. (Long before I ever considered even setting foot in ANY gym workout class.) I tried it and really liked it – so much so that it stuck with me in my head for years. Not only did I remember the name of the workout, I even pronounce it correctly, according to a very reliable source (more on that later). (On a side note, Exercise TV was also my first exposure to Tae Bo, which I was amazed that I liked.)

So, fast forward a few years, after discovering how much fun the water workout classes at NYHRC like Aqua Zumba and Aqua Fit are… I was looking at the class schedule for some interesting classes to try, and I see Masala Bhangra listed for Thursday nights at their Whitehall Street location. I told my manager and my co-workers that I was thinking about giving it a try this week. This morning, I was a bit on the fence after getting my butt kicked in Aqua Fit class, and was going back and forth all day about going to the class after work, or going home. Good thing I brought some workout wear – I decided to go.

Here comes the amazing and awesome part. What are the odds that, on my first ever attempt at a real live Masala Bhangra class, the regular instructor would be out, and, covering for him in his absence, was Sarina Jain, the creator and originator of those very same Masala Bhangra workout videos that I first saw on Exercise TV? Synchronicity at work:-) Pretty amazing stuff, no? The class, and Sarina were both AWESOME!!! (AND, I didn’t die.) 🙂
