March Highlights


You’ve probably noticed that things are looking a little different at Elixr right now. We’re really excited about the journey we’re on and thank you all for your patience and understanding as each week takes us a few steps closer to our new-look health clubs!

Zumba’s back
For those of you who’ve missed our Zumba class, the great news is that it’s back every Monday at 5.30pm. See you there!

So long…
This month, we’re saying a very fond farewell to the following Elixr staff members:

  • Paula Grinberg at reception who has been offered a full-time work opportunity
  • George Andreou at reception who is going on pilgrimage
  • Yoga teacher Christine Wong who’s relocating to Byron, and
  • Marketing consultant Anika Schiffer, who’s leaving to have a baby

Thank you all for the energy and enthusiasm you’ve brought to your respective roles at Elixr. We wish you every happiness for the future.


Anne Nyugen has been accepted for a Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science at UTS. Nicely done, Anne! We couldn’t be prouder of you.

Elle Evangelista (one of the friendly faces at reception) recently performed her first dance solo show, company, alongside five other emerging artists at Shopfront’s ArtsLab: Treats.

“This version of company featured the thoughts that have been on my mind.” says Elle. “Thoughts about home, my dreams and my family. Thank you to the Elixr members and team members who came and watched.” Any time, Elle! You’ve done us proud.
