Pungra is a leader in the group exercise industry, specialising in using Punjabi music. We are a partner of the UK's national governing body, EMD UK.
Pungra was founded by Ravi Sandhu who has been leading group exercise classes since 2000. He is certified according to standards approved by the fitness industry. Fun fact: Almost everyone advertising their classes as "bhangra fitness" classes, can't hold their classes in fitness centres; because they don't have the basic level of qualifications required by the industry.
This is an awful shame, as popularity for attending such classes is growing.
Ravi Sandhu wants to help more people who are keen to help people with their health and fitness, to become certified and bonafide "group exercise to Punjabi music instructors". If this is a mission you are interested in joining, one of the following roles might be suitable for you.

We're very proud of our YouTube videos, but have placed their development on hold. We want to form a team who are dedicated and passionate about the reach of the Pungra brand around the world. To be a part of this team you should be:
This is on a voluntary basis, until such a time that the Pungra brand generates sufficient revenue through funded projects and merchandising sales to warrant paying team members expenses.
The term "Instructor" is so last decade; we believe those that lead others to exercise to Punjabi music deserve the title of Exercise Warriors.
