What is Folk Fitness?
Folk Fitness is the latest unconventional form of fitness inspired from the roots of India. It brings together elements of folk dance, folk music and the science of fitness into a fitness regime. This method aims to nourish and enrich all aspects of the human experience (the mind, body, and soul) and celebrate India’s rich and diverse cultural heritage.
Formed in August 2015, Folk Fitness kick-started its journey with the motive of making it India’s most significant fitness product for the world. Taking inspiration from about 122 registered folk dances, this fitness regime is a celebration of the Indian culture. It has not only received accreditation from National Academy of Sports & Medicine, Aerobics & Fitness Association of America and Fitness & Sports Sciences Association. But has also been recognized by Limca Book of Records as the only Indian fitness regime incorporating folk dances.
