Accredited Exercise Physiologist at Propel Physiotherapy

Shriya Maharaj has experience in exercise programming and testing. She works with a wide variety of clients, including the elderly and those with musculoskeletal, neurological, metabolic and cardiovascular conditions. Shriya believes in finding ways for clients to be active no matter their mobility or fitness level. She uses a combination of education and exercises principles to help clients complete daily activities and manage pain.

As a former dancer, Shriya understands the importance of posture and core stability in everyday activities. She uses this as the foundation of her exercise programs. Through goal setting and problem solving strategies, she is able to help clients achieve their optimal quality of life.

Seeing the sense of accomplishment and confidence growing as clients learn new skills and become stronger is one of the things she enjoys most about her job. She gets excited when someone tells her they were finally able to put their socks on by themselves or go down the stairs without fear of falling.

Health, wellness and fitness have always been important to Shriya. She was seeking a career that would allow her to continue to pursue and promote it. She stumbled into this career by chance. As soon as she started working and interacting with clients during school internships, she fell in love.
