Her story:

Fitness lover Sophia had been attending dance classes for a long time along with her friends Yamini Mohan and Supta Ghosh. However she realized that there was an opportunity to do better which led to the trio leaving their day jobs to start Impetus – The Studio, a platform where people of all ages could come, learn activities, stay fit and have fun in a non-judgmental space, via the medium of dance and other fitness activities.

Why she thinks you’ll love her work:

The founders think what people love about Impetus is that the three of them are totally hands on, dealing with and taking care of the students and instructors personally. One of them is always present at the studio constantly talking to people, taking feedback, resolving issues with a personal touch and a smile. According to Sophia, “Our instructors also love working with us for the same reasons – transparency, mutual respect and a human touch. All our classes tend to be well-loved, but a special mention has to be made of Yoga, Bollywood, Bachata and Hip-Hop classes that are universally popular.”
