Bhavna and Kristine met 6 years as ago as their paths crossed but now know that was not by mistake. The combination of these two women is unmatched. They were destined to come back around as they both shared a passion for fitness and wellness and now opening their dream studio in Exton, Pa - Vibe Vault Fit. Vibe represents your inner vibe (soul) and Vault is represented by your body. They want their patrons to “unlock their vibe through body & soul work”. Although Bhavna and Kristine have had different paths that have lead to today, they have shared a  common goal to create a place for all to come together through fitness and wellness within a community that supports all diversity in a welcoming peaceful space to build women up with self confidence through a fun fitness experience

Co-owner at Vibe Vault Fit, has been teaching Zumba® Fitness classes since 2011, Bombay Jam since 2017, and 305 fitness since 2019.   

Dr.B’s Philosophy:  Working out can be inspired, and should address health and fitness in all aspects, including body, mind, spirit. She designs her dance fitness classes to create a high cardiovascular demand, tone large and small muscle groups, challenge the mind through 3-4 step choreographies, and lift the spirit through a curated combination of music and movement. Her vision for Vibe Vault Fit is to promote a warm community, a tribe, that will walk together toward a healthier, more fulfilling, and extraordinary life. Wellness, like happiness, is a journey not a destination; it is a mindset.  Dr. B’s goal is to help you make your own journey a priority and claim the life that is waiting for you.

 

Dr. B’s fitness journey began after the birth of her second child when she found herself struggling with a sluggish metabolism and diet-resistant extra baby weight.  She started working out with a personal trainer and several years later found herself in a Zumba fitness class.  The transformation in, not only her fitness, but also her energy, outlook, confidence, and joy was so impactful to her life, Dr. B now wants to share that transformative experience with others.

 

In her other life, Dr. B serves as co-founder and vice-president of the M. Night Shyamalan Foundation. A deep belief in human-dignity and freedom as a birthright, as well as a sense of responsibility to become participants in the fight for social justice, have been Dr. Shyamalan’s driving force in creating and steering the efforts of the foundation. Through her stewardship and vision, the foundation focuses on leaders who empower communities to break through barriers created by poverty, social/racial injustice, modern day slavery and human trafficking.

 

Dr. B has been a National and International presenter for Zumba® Fitness, teaching workshops and master classes to other instructors focused on Bollywood & Bhangra Rhythms (2011-13) and The Beauty of the Dance (2016-present). She is a featured dancer on the Zumba® Fitness Consumer DVD Collection (EXHILARATE) as well as the ZUMBA® WORLD PARTY video game, and has represented Zumba ®Fitness at a couple of notable industry trade shows.  Dr. B is also the first East Coast Brand Ambassador for Bombay Jam.
