My personal goal is to increase your knowledge on Pilates and to beat the common misconception that you need equipment to work out. I want you to know that you can work out anytime, anywhere! I will also be joining forces with the culinary team at Vakkaru Maldives to curate my ultimate breakfast table every morning, spend an afternoon sharing my hacks on the best travel-friendly snacks and smoothie concoctions as meal replacements and share some of my well-kept secret recipes for desserts. At my masterclass, I want you to understand that the food you eat must not be a tedious diet that you have picked out of a magazine, but a variable routine that you look forward to each morning,” says Yasmin Karachiwala.
