Ownership of MOVI transitioned to Simi Chacko in June 2022. Simi grew up in India and Moncton has been her home since 2011. Simi's journey with fitness and movement started from her passion for dancing. During her childhood in India she practiced a dance form that originated around the same time as Yoga called Bharathanatyam. The connection between this dance form and yoga is something that is truly remarkable as they both originated from Sanathana Dharma. To pass down this divine art form to the next generation of kids Simi founded a Dance School in Moncton that offers classical dance lessons called Izzsi Dance Studio.
Throughout her profession as a Molecular Biologist she had always found time to keep her passion for dancing and fitness alive. Yoga practice was a part of Simi's life due to her history with chronic back pain. Simi is also a certified instructor for Bollyx, a fitness dance form which uses the upbeat music for Bollywood industry. Bollyx is a unique fitness class in Moncton and has gained popularity ever since Simi launched it through Izzsi Dance Studio.
Simi's vision for MOVI is to maintain the essence of yoga foundation that Candance Hayden has built and to grow MOVI in unique ways for the community to benefit from.
