Elise is a former high-performance Springboard and Platform Diver, and now internationally Certified Pilates instructor through Polestar Pilates. She is passionate about functional movement and launched The Movement Society in 2015 with the intention of sharing positive movement experiences.
Elise was the first person to receive an individual Diving scholarship with the Western Australian Institute of Sport. After retiring from Diving in 2005, Elise completed a Bachelor of Commerce at The University of Western Australia which led her to spend three years in Corporate and Investment Finance. She took the leap and followed her heart back to movement, commencing her Pilates training in 2012.
Elise aims to make her classes inspiring, challenging, fun and above all, results-focused. She amplifies traditional Pilates to incorporate dynamic movement challenges in both standing, mat and balance work.
