Eleah originally trained as a dancer and completed her Bachelor of Dance (Honours) with Distinction. Unfortunately dance is not without its fair share of injuries and Pilates became an invaluable tool to rehabilitate. Learning the Pilates principles sparked an ongoing passion to teach functional, safe movement which has now expanded to teaching yoga also.
Eleah first trained with STOTT Pilates who are at the forefront of sport science using modifications for specific body types, postural issues and conditions. She then went on to train with APPI (Australian Physiotherapy and Pilates Institute) which looks at Pilates repertoire with direct application to a clinic setting and rehabilitating injuries. She has also done the specific pre/post natal Pilates training.
Eleah’s yoga training was led by Naomi Annand at Yoga on the Lane, and focused on compassionate vinyasa flow with elements of mindfulness and restorative practices. Her yoga teaching is deeply influenced by her existing Pilates knowledge and passion for functional and therapeutic movement.
In her down time Eleah likes to run around Victoria Park, go to yoga classes and drink epic amounts of tea. Being a complete anatomy geek she also spends her time booking movement courses or listening to podcasts on myofascial trigger points.
