Elka is a fully qualified Pilates teacher and personal trainer.
For Elka, finding her passion in fitness came as a surprise quite late in her life. Her journey started when she began training with a personal trainer; having an inquisitive nature she was eager to get a holistic understanding of how the body worked. Elka’s lovely and supportive trainer was the catalyst; inspiring and encouraging her to take a leap and change her career. It was a very natural progression from teaching English to teaching fitness; and it led to a reaffirmation that teaching is her passion.
Elka’s thirst for knowledge took her to London where she started her education at Premiere Training International by studying for a Level 2 and Level 3 Diploma in Personal Training. Having gained these qualifications, she then went on to achieve a Level 3 Diploma in Non-Medical Nutritional Advice; thereby being able to provide advice on weight management and healthy eating. Wanting to try something different, Elka went to her first Pilates class in Malta. It was love at first try. Since then she has never looked back. Once again she ventured off to London for her continued education; this time to do her first course at Body Control Pilates. After completing Level 3 Pilates she was hooked; going on to qualify in Intermediate Matwork, Pre and Post Natal Pilates and Pilates for the Older Person. Elka is now a Level 4 Pilates Teacher specialising in Low Back Pain.
Elka loves teaching; her dedication helps her students reach their full potential and boosts their morale while they work hard for their fitness goals.
