Montreal’s own Vered Haiun’s 1st rules of admission to her class specifically addresses : No nudity, No spectators, No dance experience necessary.
This taken care of, class begins, and students are in for the time of their life. Each of Vered’s fitness lessons consist of stretching, combined with Dance instruction, combined with aerobics, that offer a solid overall zero-impact workout to promote flexibility and body awareness. “Zumba”, with it’s choreography, dance moves, and sensual floor work, is touted to boost your energy, and aid in helping you feel sexy and feminine”, according to Ms.Haiun.
Zumba with Vered proves this.
Classes at Montreal’s Ben Weider JCC with Ms.Vered, offered every Tuesday, are filled to capacity for this Guru, from women of all ages; young to old, that are normally there for the exercise and music. Attendees seem to pour in moreso for the exuberence and sheer passion of their Trainer, who’s unrelentless energy always seems to provide the class with an everending peak and burst that only ends when the song does, but then another begins and the wave begins anew.
The only negative thing one could say about the experience was the look on the class…when it was over. The want for more was only replaced with the need, for some, for rest, from an athletic experience dealt in the form of Dance exercise.
If one wants proof, simply attend a class, or 2, or more.
