Meet The Founders

Shaazia Qureishi and Abbas Kanchwala

Shaazia and Abbas Kanchwala opened The PAD Pilates and Dance in 2018 with a combined passion and intention to positively change people’s lives while building a supportive community together. Shaazia is a certified Fletcher Pilates instructor who believes in the power of movement to heal acute or chronic pain, and trains her team of certified instructors to approach clients with empathy and care. Abbas is a Bollywood dance instructor who brings high energy to everything he does. He can make anyone dance, and loves to make people who “think” they can’t dance, to groove in class! Together, they’ve created a warm and cozy space that is waiting to welcome you, regardless of your fitness level, size or age. We promise your body will love you for it, but more importantly, you will love your body in a whole new way ❤️ #ThePADTribe!

About Yasmin Karachiwala

The PAD is also a franchise of celebrity Master Instructor Yasmin Karachiwala, from India. Yasmin 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.
