Since you are an expert with yoga, ancient forms of martial art and gymnastics, what kind of training you underwent for your body when you started learning?
IS: I started learning dance from my mother Daksha Seth at about 5 years of age. Along with my mother being a dancer, my father is a musician and my brother is a drummer so there was a musical ambience in my family.
