In 2008, Elyse found herself sitting at a desk job 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. It wasn’t long before she realized the toll it was taking on her posture. Enter Pilates, and instant love. Not only did Pilates improve Elyse’s posture, but it also did wonders for her mood, stress levels, and overall sense of well being. It wasn’t long before she knew that she wanted to inspire other “serial sitters” like herself to get up and get moving.
In 2011, Elyse became a certified Fitness Instructor Specialist with CanFitPro, and in 2013 she achieved her Mat Pilates Certification with Body Harmonics. What she loves most about teaching are the simple cues that instantly click with people and get them into the right position. For Elyse, a successful class is when the participants have had a laugh, felt the good muscle burn/shakes, and can leave feeling taller, stronger and empowered.
Elyse is excited to be a new member of The Belle Method team, and she looks forward to her ongoing Pilates and fitness education in the near future and beyond!
