Elisha discovered pilates while completing her journalism diploma in Australia. She spent her college breaks taking multiple classes until her habit became an obsession. Her love lead her to change career plans, where she studied to become a STOTT Pilates Instructor Trainer and Cert IV personal trainer and spent 6 years teaching in Sydney, Australia and more recently, in the Middle East. It was moving to Dubai that saw her find a new obsession – Xtend Barre – and she went on to teach both classes and training courses as the Teacher Trainer for the Middle East. A love of all things competitive and a need to stay mentally and physically stimulated has seen her compete at a national level in swimming, run a half marathon and more recently fall in love with CrossFit and Weightlifting. Elisha takes this same approach in her teaching; striving to stay interesting, entertaining and never teaching the same class twice.
