When you are as driven as Anita Ivic giving up is never an option, no matter the circumstances. Dancing ballet since she was very young, Anita always knew the importance of being healthy. When she was 11, she suffered an injury from a car accident, which did not hinder her dance career whatsoever. She started rehabilitation through Pilates which allowed her to earn her degree in dance and become a professional dancer. Pilates has always complimented her training and Anita eventually became a Pilates instructor at various physiotherapy clinics and studios. Carrying a vast knowledge on how the body works and its movement, Anita took a huge leap in her career and took over Imprint Pilates in 2008 and the studio is now taking the city by storm.
