Urmi’s love and obsession with playing sports, fitness, martial arts and movement started when she was 13 which she pursued relentlessly, alongside a career in advertising and an MBA degree. She quit the corporate rat race to become a professional Indian Contemporary dancer in 2009 where she trained intensively in Kalaripayattu, Yoga, rhythm: elements which heavily influence her fitness vocabulary today.

In 2012, she became a full-time trainer / teacher when she founded Kinetic Living based in Mumbai. Here, she focuses on multi-faceted fitness: not only strength and stamina but also balance, flexibility, agility and most importantly, body, breath and core awareness.
