Eva Bondar has been teaching Gentle Pilates mat classes in Maui, Hawaii since January 2003. She was inspired to teach others after experiencing the rehabilitative effects of Pilates first hand after a car accident in 2002.
Eva studied dance professionally at Broadway Dance Center in NYC with Frank Hatchett, Sheila Brown, Finus Jhung, and Madame Darvache. Before teaching Pilates, Eva worked in the fitness industry teaching low impact aerobics and strength training as well as dance to children.
After being certified by the AFAA, she taught at various locations throughout the island of Maui including The University of Hawaii Maui College, The Maui Prince Hotel, Kaunoa Senior Center, and Haleakala Waldorf School. She currently teaches classes in partnership with Kaiser Permanente in Kahului and The County of Maui Parks and Recreation Program in Upcountry Pukalani.
She has also starred in the Gentle Pilates DVD, Pilates Pregnancy DVD, Aqua Exercises Book, and featured in articles in Pilates Style Magazine for her gentle yet effective style of instruction.
Individualized classes (personal training) with Eva is available on Maui or worldwide via internet connection.
Eva takes from her personal experience to teach others how to heal their injuries and lead a healthy, active lifestyle.
