Pilates has been an integral part of Vardit's life for over 16 years. She knows what has worked for her, kept her interested but also trained her body and brings this into her classes. No two classes are ever the same (rarely music either) and she keeps the moves dynamic & fluid.
Pilates is a mindful exercise which focuses on core strength, a healthy and balanced body, whilst the added by-product is a toned fit-looking physique.
She currently takes two Friday morning classes at Project:Me.
