If you think that the saree is reserved just for daily wear or for festive occasions then this woman is happy to prove you wrong. Reena Singh, a fitness enthusiast and apparently a saree enthusiast too has made wearing a saree, well, quite a statement. In this viral video that was shared on Reena's Instagram account, Reena confidently engages in a rigorous exercise regime that would put many a workout aficionado to shame and she does this while donning a beautiful saree.
In other videos on her account, Reena is vocal about encouraging others to embrace their individuality and culture even if it means having to break stereotypes. She also focuses on motivating followers to work on pursuing their passion and improving their fitness. While, for many, draping a saree with perfect pleats alone is a challenge, this fitness coach has inspired many to break away from self-imposed limitations and explore possibilities. Here's another post that exemplifies Reena's talent, passion and sheer determination for fitness, notwithstanding the confines of the traditional attire.
Reena's drive to inspire others to break gender stereotypes both through action and attire has paid off with a sizable following on social media and particularly her Instagram page. While many followers are amazed and full of praise, others raised concerns about Reena's safety as they believed that without proper gym wear, she was putting herself at risk.
One user commented, 'Wah wah Indian sherni'' and another commented in the same vein, "Super se uper madam"
Yet another fan was quick to attribute Reena's source of strength to her inner feminine, 'Na Aadhi na Anth hai iska🙏❤️......Naari se badkar koi nhi❤️....'
Interrupting the steady stream of compliments was the occasional voice of caution, "You always Rockz Madam but please don't take those risks 🔥."
There are also a few comments expressing caution about encouraging others to replicate Reena's antics.
