Jia Yin’s passion for movement began at a young age; she trained competitively in artistic gymnastics before treading into her first (Chinese) dance class at the age of 12. A leap of faith after graduating from Singapore Management University (SMU) saw her pursuing dance at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) in Singapore, then at State University of New York (SUNY) Purchase College under a scholarship from the National Arts Council (NAC). Equipped with a Bachelor in Fine Arts (Dance), certifications and training in other movement modalities namely GYROTONIC®, GYROKINESIS®, and Balance Body® Pilates Mat and Reformer, Jia Yin juggles between teaching dance, Gyrotonic, Gyrokinesis, and Pilates at various studios and institutions. She is an adjunct lecturer at NAFA, and an artiste with The Human Expression (T.H.E) Dance Company's Second Company, where she dances, choreographs, and teaches.  Jia Yin finds joy and fulfillment in helping her clients and students tap into their potential of movement as a form of therapy, injury prevention, as well as athletic and mindfulness training to enhance performance. She is a firm believer that a functional body makes for a happy and expressive body.
    Having experienced backache in her younger days due to bad posture, Samantha decided to try Pilates after learning the benefits from her Chiropractor. After 4 years of practice, she embarked on a journey of discovering Pilates through the eyes of an instructor and being more focused in body awareness. Using herself as an example of someone who prefers not to "sweat it out in a gym", she believes that Pilates is an approachable exercise for everyone with different fitness levels.
      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. Cindy's passion for Pilates grew from her desire to relieve pain she experienced from a lumbar herniated disc, due to excessive aerobics teaching, and her difficult second childbirth. 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. She realizes the importance of ongoing training and actively tries to find more ways to empower her clients by providing them with the tools for self-therapy.
