Alethea Chor -
Instructor

Alethea has worked in both the private and public sectors for more than 15 years before making a switch to the movement industry. She was once diagnosed with severe myalgia pain; suspected to be caused by viral infections and for that short period, she had lost much of her hip mobility to even walk properly. During this time, Alethea started practicing Pilates which restored her sense of well-being, grounding her with an understanding of mind-body connection and giving her a sense of inner peace. Alethea’s mid-career change was motivated by her desire to find freedom from chronic pains, support others on their journey to restoring health that could dramatically improve quality of life and empower them with movement awareness of their own bodies.

Alethea works frequently with populations who has back, hip, knee & ankle conditions, stroke clients, older adults, prenatal, postnatal & diastasis recti recovery. Her love and passion to coach others rejuvenate their state of well-being is the core motivation for her drive. Alethea says “Move to Live Awesome”

Working from home meant we could vary snack and coffee breaks, change our desks or view, goof off, drink on the job, even spend the day in pajamas

Olga discovered Pilates in 2012 while living in Shanghai. Her previous career involved sitting in the office for long periods of time, which caused problems with her posture resulting in neck and back pain. Her chiropractor recommended her to try some Pilates sessions which she instantaneously fell in love with.Pilates appealed to Olga as it teaches the way our body moves and functions. It can be gentle but also challenging at times. And the best thing about Pilates is that is effective for people with different fitness levels. Recognising the benefits of Pilates, Olga decided to pursue a certification in Pilates and has completed the Balanced Body Mat Certification. She believes Pilates not only helps to improve your posture and strengthen the body, but also gives you more energy and a sense of general well-being. "Guiding people to healthier and happier lives makes me happy!"
    It is easy to attribute Wany’s expertise to over 10 years of industry experience; but in reality, it is due to her personal belief that the key to a good life is moving well. Her approach to exercise is fuelled by this principle of fundamental movement and drives her to create personalized, targeted plans to unlock movement potential in her clients. She pulls from her extensive and constantly growing knowledge base – she is a graduate of sports and exercises science, certified in varied Pilates techniques (Balanced Body, STOTT, Gyrotonic), TRX, endurance and Bootcamp training, and precision nutrition among others. The results speak for themselves, as her clients experience holistic improvement in their strength, flexibility, and pain levels. She also enjoys conducting group classes both high intensity or low impact. Wany’s classes are as challenging as they are fun. Recognised by Nike for her skills and energetic vibe, she currently holds a Master Trainer role in SoutheastAsia.

      Cindy believes that everybody should enjoy pain free movement regardless of age, body type and physical history. She has over ten years of experience in leading group exercises and providing personal training.

Pilates has helped Cindy to achieve comfort and wellness. It is an important part of her life as she feels it not only improves her mind and body awareness, but it also helps her gain control over her emotions. Since becoming a certified instructor, Cindy has worked with many clients to regain functionality and to improve their quality of life.
