Qualifications: BollyFit® Founder, CEO, and Olympic Choreographer, Anuja Rajendra, has empowered thousands to reach higher levels of health, wellness, connection, happiness and success. Anuja trained in classic Indian dancing. After serving the community for over 8 years, Anuja has been inducted into the Michigan Indian Women's Hall of Fame and has served back-to-back terms on the Michigan Governor's Council on Physical Fitness, Wellness and Health and Fitness.

Personal History: Anuja earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial and Operations Engineering and a Masters in Business Administration, both from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. She has excelled in the corporate, non-profit and technology sectors. In 1997, the death of her older sister, Rachana, in an automobile accident, propelled Anuja to found Moon-baked Creations Art Lounge and Cafe in Okemos, Michigan in her sister's memory. In 2003, while a student at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan, Anuja was selected by Professor C.K. Prahalad to co-author a casebook on emerging markets. The work was published by Wharton School Publishing as part of the renowned book, "The Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid, Eradicating Poverty through Profits." After the birth of her two sons, Anuja began to feel the effects of motherhood. Anuja began dancing again around the house with her two boys and re-found her childhood joy. She began teaching BollyFit® in an attempt to share this natural workout with her community. After reading Eckhart Tolle's book, A New Earth, BollyFit® began to transform, as Anuja herself transformed. The in-class experience is taken to a new level as students find themselves coming to be fit, have fun, and illuminate from within. Students come to BollyFit®'s flagship Ann Arbor classes from all over the world.

Workout Philosophy: Anuja knows that being fit, moving to music, and joy are natural human states. She created BollyFit® as one path to organically illuminate all these states in human beings.

Success Story: BollyFit®'s origins is a success story in and of itself. In creating BollyFit®, Anuja shed more than 80lbs of weight she had gained during her pregnancies without the dread of calorie minimizing and treadmill-minute maximizing.
