The majestic mountain ranges across the Western Cape and surrounding the beautiful city of Cape Town have become Elisabeth’s back yard, as she would describe it. Being an avid road and trail runner she understands the importance of being active with a healthy balanced lifestyle. Having discovered Barre in 2012, she immediately fell in love with the discipline, as it integrates the most important aspects of exercise; pilates, strength, ballet and cardio at a high intensity.

Elisabeth holds a Masters degree in International Political Economy and Environmental Science from the University of Stellenbosch as well as a diploma in Anatomy and Physiology from the University of Oslo. She will further advance her academic career by pursuing a PhD at the University of Cape Town in 2014. The Barre philosophy has become an essential and passionate part of her life leading Elisabeth to become a Barre Body Instructor as a way to enhance her individual training as well as allowing her to share and inspire others to practice a healthy lifestyle.
