Yashodhara Lal's USP is in taking the ordinary and making it hilarious. She graduated from IIM-Bangalore in 2002 and has over 12 years of experience in the Marketing Domain across two large corporations in FMCG and media. She lives in Gurgaon with her husband Vijay, and the three small children they call Peanut, Pickle and Papad - all of whom never fail to provide her with material for her entertaining blog at http://www.yashodharalal.com.

'Just Married, Please Excuse' is her first book. 'Sorting Out Sid' is her latest work of fiction.

I find that it works well to really just write when I feel like it, and then take breaks in between books. I also try to see my non-writing time as productive because it leads to inspiration and new ideas. So in a sense, I think I'm always writing now. (less)

Fabulous program. Not based on dance, but high intensity tempo training.

Incidentally, I believe this program's license is being opened up even to non-Zumba instructors in 2017.

Check it out!
