Our vision

To develop a directory of group exercise to Punjabi music instructors, that are certified according to fitness industry standards.

The directory will work together to contribute to combating the obesity pandemic and helping people enjoy being active.

We’re professionalising exercise to Punjabi music

“…I checked your videos and I fall in love with those…” Nav, Las Vegas

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“…it doesn’t feel like exercise, the moves are nice and easy to follow and I get a good workout, highly recommended…” Kiran, London

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

“…I think it is hard to sustain any exercise program unless it is fun. That’s why I am writing this review: if it is not only good exercise but also real fun what you’re looking for, you should meet Pungra workouts immediately. It is a real joy to follow them.” Yaprak, Turkey

Join the group

It’s still early days for our mission, and we need your support to get us there. One of the most powerful elements of what we do is being within a group. Our group is on Twitter, join in with all the fun using #pungra.

Get to know other Pungrafiers, stay informed with what’s happening with classes, including photos, when new spaces become available, when there are spare spaces for guests to take for free, and when new instructors come on board. We’ll ask questions, do surveys, share our fitness progress and motivate each other. Freely and openly.

This image is an example of an open group conversation on Twitter. If you don’t want the public to be able to see your tweets, ensure you’re set to only allow followers to see them.

Questions and answers about our group

I don’t use Twitter, or I don’t understand Twitter
Answer: It’s our guess you’ve never had a reason to, now is as good as time as any to start.

Why Twitter? Why not Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, or others?
Answer: Partly because of data protection, and partly because of the trust of the provider. We think you should reserve Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp for your family, and friends you knew dozens of years ago from school that you want to keep in contact with. Twitter is a place to set your health and fitness intentions and connect with others who love exercise to Punjabi music.

Can I just see the updates without signing up for an account?
Yes, this is the number one reason why we use Twitter because you don’t “have” to have an account, unlike with Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and others. You can bookmark the instructor’s page in a browser, and check it regularly for updates. To contribute to the discussion, and ask to take a space in class as a guest, you will need an account.

Class

We have one class every Sunday 10AM to 11AM at Dormer’s Wells Leisure Centre. It’s booked three months ahead and is almost always fully subscribed. To be kept informed about when spaces become available, and new classes start, please subscribe by email at bottom of this page, and join our group on Twitter.
