Starting off as a client, Sarah Lin started Pilates as a compliment to her triathlon training, which often left her with muscle tightness and injuries. Sarah recognised that Pilates was different from other fitness methods she had tried, and was determined to learn more. She completed a Diploma in Sports and Exercise Science and went on to become certified in the Gyrotonic Expansion System. Sarah is also fully certified in the Polestar Pilates method.Sarah enjoys teaching clients from all walks of life from pre-natal mothers to competitive Ironman Athletes. She has been teaching since 2007 but took a hiatus for 5 years to build up a food business. Now a mother of a one-year-old girl, she is even more convicted that Pilates is essential for healing and rehabilitation of the body. She is keen to share its benefits so everyone will be equipped with skills to be free to move with strength and fluidity.
    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"
