Get to know your therapist – Deborah
Deborah is a fully licensed medical doctor and she used to be an avid dancer who first encountered Pilates more than 10 years ago. Pilates enabled Deborah to greatly improve her understanding of movement and reduce the lower back pain she suffered from due to mild scoliosis. Now, she runs and does crossfit in her spare time. To Deborah, Pilates is a constant because it’s like an essential vitamin and mineral to physical well being!
Deborah is an extremely smiley and positive person who laughs alot and has a good sense of humour. She has recently been trying to adopt the whole food plant base approach to her diet.
What inspired you to take up Pilates?
I started doing Pilates about 11 years ago for cross training, conditioning and strengthening for dance. I used to dance 4-5 time a week all the way up till when I graduated medical school.
I fell in love with Pilates after as I was impressed with how diverse and well thought out the repertoire is and how it could help EVERYONE.
What do you love most about your job?
Meeting new and different people! I love how I get to meet so many diverse people in my job, build relationships with them and help them along the way.
If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?
A Bird! Either an eagle or a hawk as I think bigger birds are grand and magestic. I would love to be able to take flight and I would definitely choose to be a predator. Its too stressful being a prey.
