Trading can be an extremely stressful activity. An emotional roller coaster that all of us face every day. I have interacted with tens of thousands of active traders for almost two decades now. A trend I have seen across many of them who have done well trading has been that, along with spending a lot of time learning, they also take care of their mind and body. While we work on building different nudges on Kite that can help you take right trading decisions, we thought since the body and mind are such key ingredients to successful trading, especially in times like these, maybe we should do something about it as well. So we’ve partnered with ImStrong, the latest startup through our Rainmatter initiative, to bring you online yoga and mindfulness classes from March 22, 2020 — all sponsored by us. 🙂

ImStrong is the most convenient fitness solution for busy people. Our video-streaming platform makes it easy for you to access trainer-led classes, like yoga and meditation, from the comfort of your home, office, or anywhere you like.
Why We Built ImStrong
Nowadays, almost everyone in any urban setting lives a busy life. As working professionals, freelancers, or business owners, we struggle to live an active lifestyle and are always under tremendous stress. Because of a busy and unpredictable work schedule, finding time to go to a gym is difficult. Either the travel time to the gym is overkill or hiring a personal trainer is not an affordable option. All of this stands in the way of making fitness a priority. But the underlying truth is that people want to stay healthy. Don’t you? This was our personal problem too, and we wanted to build a solution for people like ourselves to make access to trainer-led fitness classes easy and convenient. Now users can exercise anytime, anywhere with guidance from a professional trainer.
