June first brush with teaching came when her lecturer encouraged her to teach an aerobics class as part of her assignment. She has never looked back since and has been in the fitness industry since 2013. She started her career in Certis Cisco as a fitness trainer for the army recruits. June started attending spinning classes with her friend and was inspired by the energy of the instructors so she signed up for the Les Mills RPM Training. June’s life revolves around health and fitness and manages a healthy balanced lifestyle. She believes in healthy eating, with a good balance of exercise and sufficient sleep. In her free time, June still visits the gym and attends classes to get inspiration for her classes. June gets her motivation from her clients who enjoy the workout. June believes that workouts should always be fun, and of course, safe. Exercising should never be seen as a 'punishment', because being able to move is a gift.

      Aparna started her career as a physiotherapist in 2002 with the aim of improving the quality of life of adults and children with neurological issues, such as stroke and cerebral palsy. She soon realised that caregivers need equal amounts of attention; and thus, her interest in issues of the spine, sacroiliac joints and the knees and shoulders. Her masters in health sciences (with a specialisation in paediatrics) a couple of years later gave her a more holistic view of the neuromuscular and musculoskeletal system of adults and children. Aparna believes in adopting a head-to-toe approach. She sees the body as a chain of interconnected muscles and joints; where a dysfunction at one end is bound to affect the other end. For her, efficiency in movement is the key to a healthy and fit life. Together with her concept of a “preventive physiotherapy,” Aparna aims to return her patients to a comfortable life as soon as possible. Pilates is a modality she believed would help her achieve her aims in rehabilitation as well as in “preventive physiotherapy.” She did her comprehensive Pilates training with Polestar Pilates; and then shifted to Singapore from Kuala Lumpur to work as a senior Physiotherapist with The Moving Body. Subsequent to that, she has become a Master Instructor/Faculty Educator for Balanced Body Pilates. Under The Movement Academy, she conducts Pilates training courses for those who are interested in becoming Pilates Instructors.
