Candice Kwok -
Masters of Science (Physiotherapy)

Candice is a Canadian trained physiotherapist who was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. Her early work experience started in 2009 in Vancouver where she worked in acute care with complex geriatric patients. She continued onto the neurological rehab setting where she worked with individuals with spinal cord injuries at a leading university teaching hospital in Toronto. She has since completed additional education in running assessment and training, and prenatal and postnatal rehab, and has honed her skills in the musculoskeletal private practice setting where she sees all types of clients from sports to office related injuries. She also brings forth her experience as a busy mom of two boys and can relate to the physical and mental demands of being a parent!

As a certified Yoga and Pilates instructor, Candice has a strong focus on exercise-based rehabilitation. She works closely with clients to identify their personal goals and strives to provide a well-rounded treatment plan that is not only aimed at symptom relief but on strengthening and re-conditioning the mind and body in order to return to sport and daily function with confidence and with prevention of re-injury. She merges the knowledge of evidence-based therapy options with her patient’s values and preferences. Candice always practices with compassion and is a strong believer in a holistic approach to health care.

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

Passionate about helping her clients feel energised and confident, Gabby will make sure that you leave class with a smile on your face! Introduced to pilates back in college, she loved how pilates was a great way to heal, a moving meditation, and a great workout. Through regular sessions, she improved her physical strength, gained more flexibility and was even able to achieve her goal of running a full marathon. She's also a new mother to a young baby and she credits pilates for her pain-free pregnancy and smooth labour. Fun-fact: Bookstores are my happy place!
    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.
      Gen first started Pilates 8 years ago, in an attempt at finding a solution to scoliosis-related back pain,and it changed her life. She credits Pilates for her having a pain-free, smooth pregnancy in spite of scoliosis. Gen lives by the mantra, “Everything Happens for a Reason”, because having been a litigation lawyer, and then spending many years in the commercial insurance industry, Gen’s route to joining the movement industry was not a straightforward one. She became a Pilates instructor chiefly to share the numerous benefits of regular Pilates practice with as many people as possible. Gen strongly believes that the mind-body connection fundamental to Pilates practice makes for safe and effective movement. Regular Pilates practice results in functional movement because it builds not only strength and flexibility, but also trains balance and proprioception. This means that Pilates can complement practically every lifestyle and fitness regime, whether a person is into high-impact sport, low-impact flow, or just wants to be able to balance better on a crowded bus! Pilates exercises can be modified almost limitlessly, making Pilates suitable for people of all ages and physical conditions (professional athletes, those with injury/chronic pain, pregnant women, etc.)
