Saving Mothers Lifestyle Modification Program: Bollywood Edition!

Saving Mothers continues to motivate, interest, and educate pregnant women on healthy lifestyle choices through our Lifestyle Modification Program.

Held at Mount Sinai’s OB/GYN clinic, this innovative program encourages overweight women, who at greater risk for operative deliveries and pregnancy-related diseases, to learn to make smarter and healthier decisions through fun and unique educational programming.

This time around, in an effort to highlight the importance of regular exercise, volunteers from Boston-based BOLLYX Fitness offered free dance classes for our pregnant mothers. This Bollywood-inspired dance-fitness class focuses on cardio exercise and isometric strength-training. Plus, it teaches patients that you can break a sweat and have fun at the same time!  

BOLLYX co-founder Minal Mehta: “It was a thrill to bring a new cultural experience and promote healthy habits and fitness to the patients in the [Saving Mothers] LMP.  Bollywood is all about expressing your inner joy, and it was rewarding to see the program participants’ faces light up to the music and dance.”

Thank you to BOLLYX and all of our program volunteers for helping our pregnant women stay healthy and happy during this special time in their lives!
