The Perfect 10: 10-Minute Workouts You Can Do Anywhere by Yasmin Karachiwala

The brains behind the beauty of some of India’s biggest celebrities, Bollywood’s fitness instructor extraordinaire, Yasmin Karachiwala is all set to launch her upcoming release, PERFECT 10: 10-Minute Workouts You Can Do Anywhere. Yasmin is widely credited with bringing Pilates to India. Her list of certifications includes BASI (Body Arts and Science International) Certified Pilates Instructor, Balanced Body Comprehensive Master Instructor, and Balanced Body MOTR Master Instructor, among others. Her multidisciplinary approach to fitness includes weight training, HIIT, cardio, functional training, Pilates and more, and can be accessed at the Yasmin Karachiwala Body Image (YKBI) chain of studios located both in India and internationally.

According to Yasmin, the problem with Fitness, and here she uses a capital F—is that it is its own enemy. And, that enemy is its reputation. A reputation that has been harnessed by a multi-billion-dollar culture that favours speed over well-being, aesthetics over health, and sweat over efficiency. There is little or no reward for incremental gain. Fitness looks hard. Weight maintenance looks difficult. It is a culture that has normalized half-truths for so long and so deeply that these have become part of our conditioning and discouraged us from seeking out our own path to better health.

Her book aims to normalize that fitness is easy. This book will show you that all it takes is 10 minutes a day to start that journey and it is packed with exercise plans, movement ideas and lifestyle changes. Get up. Move with Yasmin herself and see how your body and your life change.

Advance Praise

‘In this fast-paced world that we live in, we often neglect our physical, mental and emotional well-being. I’ve always believed in the power of nurturing my mind and body consistently, even if it is for just 10 minutes a day, making The Perfect 10: 10-Minute Workouts You Can Do Anywhere my perfect companion’—Deepika Padukone, actor

‘Workouts with Yas are always a surprise—it’s never the same and it’s always evolving! One of the things I look for when I exercise is to truly cut off from the rest of the world, visiting that safe place that leaves you feeling alive and rejuvenated after—and that’s exactly how I feel after a Pilates session with Yas! Whether it’s after a super long night shoot or before a big song sequence or right in the middle of my third trimester of pregnancy, the way she constructs workouts is fully tailored to my needs at that moment and that’s why the 60 minutes I spend working out with Yas leaves me feeling beyond great! This book will leave you feeling the same way; I can give it to you in writing! :)’—Alia Bhatt, actor

‘It is really inspiring to see Yasmin when she is in her element at the gym because she is so passionate and knowledgeable about her craft. The thing I admire most about Yasmin, which is also one of the reason that has kept us training together for so long, is that she is constantly improving herself and her skills and learning something new. I think the 10-minute workout stacks are great. You have to keep moving every day and that’s really important’—Katrina Kaif, actor

‘Yasmin is the queen of fitness! Her 10-minute routine is magical and the answer to not just me but to so many millions who don’t have the time to work out. This book is pure gold’—Karan Johar, filmmaker
