Sonia has tons of energy and enthusiasm, and she bounces
everywhere. She bounced from Seoul to Europe to America and Japan before
finally landing - on both feet and with bent knees of course - in Singapore,
just over 6 and half years ago.
Everywhere Sonia has been, she has taken exercise very seriously.
She has been to gyms, studied all kinds of classes, and had different personal
trainers - but only in Pilates has she found a discipline that is serious about
studying the way our bodies move. Although she still believes it's important to
work out hard and push yourself, this shouldn't be done at the expense of your
posture and balance.
"Studying Pilates has taught me how complicated our bodies
are," Sonia says, "such as the connectivity between small muscles
that support the bigger muscles that we think do all the work. It has given me
more of an appreciation for moving correctly, with balance and striving for
perfect form. It has also made me realize how important it is to strengthen
under-used core muscles and stabilizers, as these are key to protecting from
over-stress in other activities."
She still understands
the desire to put in a tough workout - and bounce around - but now knows that
doing this is safer, and much better in the long run, with a properly balanced
body. "And it's great to be able to share this knowledge with other people
who love to exercise too - which is what I get from teaching at The Moving
Body," she adds.Areas of Interest:
