Practitioner Spotlight: Clinical Pilates Teacher Eleah Waters...

Each month we are shining the light on one of our Fix practitioners for
special inside information and a Q & A. This month we have Fix Clinical
Pilates and posture expert Eleah Waters.

A little on clinical Pilates….

If you’re recovering from injury, pre/post natal or even a top athlete, Clinical
Pilates uses modified Pilates exercises specific to overcoming pain and getting
you back to moving with great function. If you’ve just done a course of physio
and you need some expert tuition to bring you into balance, this is what you

So, where in Australia are you from?

Melbourne! Such a great city, I love to go back every year to visit family and
friends. I’ve been lucky enough to live in London for 8 years now so I feel like I’ve
done a lot of growing here. London inspires me.

What’s your favourite part of being a Pilates instructor?

Working with people from all walks of life. Listening to their stories and what
they want to achieve and then seeing their face when they’ve improved!
Teaching is a brilliant job in any capacity. I love my job.

Local Hackney recommends, please?

Climpson’s Arch for a summer evening, dinner and drinks. I love Reva Yoga for
beautiful mindful yoga with Nina. Victoria Park for running and watching the
seasons change.

What exercise (other than Pilates!) do you love doing?

I’m such a geek, I do Pilates almost every day but I also really like to run. I ran the
Hackney Half marathon last year and absolutely loved it, such a thrill. I also love
working out with my fitness buddy Alice (another Fix practitioner) we do circuits
with kettlebells and bodyweight exercises.

Fun fact:  Ilived in Moscow for 3 months where I taught at an English nursery school back
when I was training to be a contemporary dancer.
