INSTRUCTORS

UNI KO

I played basketball for more than 15 years before I became a Pilates instructor. Because of basketball, I have always frequented the hospital and rehabilitation centres because of various injuries from the sport. I was in constant pain from multiple injuries such as a herniated disk, dislocation, and fracture.
I’ve tried several treatments but I haven’t been able to see any improvement. Then, I started Pilates as a form of rehabilitation and noticed that I began using new muscles that I don’t usually use. From there, I could slowly feel my body getting stronger and the pain from my injuries gradually going away.
I was fascinated by Pilates, so I gave up my profession as a basketball player and got my Pilates instructor training certificate. Through Pilates, I was able to recover from my injuries. I want to share my experience with Pilates with many people.
저는 15년간 농구선수로 활동했습니다. 선수 생활을 하며 고된 훈련과 시합으로 허리디스크, 탈골, 골절 등 수많은 부상에 시달렸고, 그 때문에 끊임없는 재활 치료를 받아야 했습니다.
이때 재활치료의 일환으로 필라테스를 접하게 되었고 평소 농구나 웨이트 트레이닝에서 사용하지 않는 새로운 근육들을 사용하는 법을 배웠습니다. 필라테스를 시작한 지 몇 주가 지나자 신기하게도 몸 깊은 곳부터 힘이 차오르는 느낌과 동시에 부상의 통증이 줄어든 것을 느낄 수 있었습니다.
이런 계기로 필라테스의 매력에 푹 빠지게 되었고 프로농구팀 생활을 포기하고 필라테스 강사 교육을 듣게 되었습니다.
필라테스로 인해서 저는 부상의 고통에서 벗어나 웃음을 되찾을 수 있었습니다. 저의 경험을 바탕으로 많은 분들께 필라테스를 통해 웃음을 드리고 싶습니다.

EUGENIA CHIANG

I was whisked into the world of Pilates in 2013 and have since been fascinated by the practice of it. It is a lifelong learning journey.
I was in bad physical shape in my early 20s and could barely do a proper sit-up and stretch! I dislocated my knee during a rollerblading session, and through Pilates, I’ve gained strength in flexibility and more control of my body. Pilates has also made me more confident to try other forms of fitness.
To me, Pilates is the “foundation” for all sports and is an added benefit to incorporate into our daily lifestyle. I would love to share my knowledge with everyone who loves Pilates.

PATSY LEE

Hi, I’m Patsy, a passionate and skilled fitness instructor who has dedicated her life to promoting health, well-being, and inner strength through Pilates. My journey in the fitness world began many years ago when I discovered the transformative power of Pilates, a unique exercise method that has gained immense popularity worldwide.

I first encountered Pilates during my fitness journey. After facing some health challenges, I sought an exercise regimen that would help me regain my strength and promote injury prevention and mind-body connection. Upon discovering Pilates, I was captivated by its principles and methodology, realizing its potential to bring significant positive changes in people’s lives.
Inspired by my transformation, I pursued formal training to become a certified Pilates instructor. I delved deep into the study of anatomy, physiology, and the principles of Pilates. With my newfound knowledge and unwavering commitment to the practice, I embarked on a mission to share the benefits of Pilates with others.
I believe that Pilates is for people of all ages and fitness levels. I designed specialized programs for seniors, pregnant women, athletes, and individuals recovering from injuries. My inclusivity and adaptability have made Pilates more approachable to a broader range of individuals, breaking down the misconception that Pilates is only for the elite or highly trained.

EVANGELINA MAE WEE

My first experience of Pilates was as a pre-natal client, and I resumed Pilates classes after delivery. As someone who’s a self-confessed gym rat until baby came along, Pilates seemed pretty easy at first. However, I soon realised that I needed focus and awareness to become good at Pilates practice, something that I hadn’t brought to my fitness journey before.
On completing formal Pilates training, I’ve continued to appreciate how useful these principles of mindful movement are in our everyday lives and how applying the ideas of breath, focus, centring, control, precision and flow make you a better, more efficient mover in all other forms of exercise from running, tennis and golf to martial arts even!
Contrary to popular belief, Pilates is not just for people who have suffered injury or are experiencing chronic pain. I firmly believe that Pilates benefits everyone regardless of age, lifestyle, or activity level.

CICI TAN

I am passionate about Pilates and have been practising the method for more than a decade. My Pilates journey started when I could no longer do long-distance running due to knee pain. Doing Pilates helped to alleviate my pain and helped me to gain overall strength. Everyone should have the opportunity to try it to experience its benefits for themselves.

Not only does Pilates help achieve physical well-being through increased body awareness, muscle tone and flexibility, but more importantly, you will find yourself more focused and grounded as you deepen your practice. I want to share my experience and knowledge with everyone to achieve better movement patterns and strengthen your bodies so that you can lead more fulfilling lives.

JANICE CHEW

Hello! I am Janice. I have enjoyed ballet since I was three and stopped for personal reasons. While seeking the joy I had from dancing, a relative of mine introduced me to Pilates, and ever since taking up classes, it has sparked the same kind of joy in me again. I have seen its benefits in realigning my posture and becoming stronger.

As a mental health advocate, I also saw how Pilates could help one feel better physically and mentally. It improves one’s body condition and helps regain confidence through movements and mind and body connection. I am passionate about sharing the benefits of Pilates with everyone.

My class is fun and active with the love of focusing on posture, core and arms. Everyone is welcome to give Pilates a try.

MELANIE YU

Hi, I’m Melanie, and I’m a qualified STOTT Pilates instructor. My journey into the world of Pilates teaching has been a fulfilling one. With a rich background in luxury PR and marketing, I made a significant career transition that shifted my focus from the fast-paced glitz of high fashion to the mindful, enriching practice of Pilates and wellness. This transition was deeply rooted in my passion for wellness and helping others find strength and balance within themselves.

My love affair with Pilates began long before my professional training, as a long-time practitioner of yoga and mat Pilates since my early teenage years. However, it was through a knee injury sustained during a yoga session that I truly discovered the transformative power of Pilates.
Currently, I am on a pursuit to further deepen my understanding of the body and wellness by training to become a Certified Nutrition and Wellness Coach. My international background — having lived in London, Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Melbourne, and now Singapore — also enriches my approach to wellness and helps me connect with clients from all walks of life.

In my classes, I emphasise the importance of proper alignment and mindful muscle engagement. Whether you’re a seasoned practitioner or new to pilates, you can look forward to an experience that is not only rewarding but also tailored to meet your unique needs and goals. I strive to create an empowering and nurturing space where every client is encouraged to reap the benefits of Pilates and discover the joy of movement.

KIREN CHEN

Hi, I’m Kiren! My journey with Pilates began as one of many hobbies when it comes to fitness. Only in my early twenties, when I encountered a weakening in one of my knees, did I stop doing what I used to adore, such as running. For that reason, I had to find an alternative to continue exercising without causing further harm to my injured knee. That was when I stumbled upon Pilates, a practice that elevated from an option I thought I was left with, into greater curiosity and deep passion.

Alongside my gentle and natural inclination to help and assist others, I’ve decided to pursue Pilates to share its many mindful benefits and cultivation, which I have been learning and have yet to discover.

I aspire and hope to create a supportive and inclusive environment where individuals of all levels and fitness backgrounds can thrive through movements ranging from slow-paced to upbeat, depending on each individual’s preference. I look forward to sharing this Pilates journey with you!

GWEN TAN

Hello, I’m Gwen! One of my favourite quotes is “The first wealth is health,” it reminds us that good health is the foundation for us to live life to the fullest and unlock our greatest potential. I came across Pilates when trying out different workouts to cope with the demanding corporate life that had a sedentary lifestyle and many hours of sitting in front of a computer. This led to frequent neck, shoulder and back aches and stiff hips. Pilates has helped me be more aware of my body posture and active movement and build strength in my overall body.
Having experienced the benefits of Pilates, I went on to deepen my knowledge through professional training. Now, as an instructor, I hope to have this opportunity to share what I have learnt broadly and support clients from diverse backgrounds.
In my private classes, you can expect more intentional exercises that meet where your body might be feeling for the day, mindful activation of muscles and movements, and allowing your body to feel stronger than before!
