Cindy Cheong -
Senior Instructor

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.

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

Sonia has tons of energy and enthusiasm, and she bounces everywhere. She bounced from Seoul to Europe to America and Japan before finally landing - on both feet and with bent knees of course - in Singapore, just over 6 and half years ago. Everywhere Sonia has been, she has taken exercise very seriously. She has been to gyms, studied all kinds of classes, and had different personal trainers - but only in Pilates has she found a discipline that is serious about studying the way our bodies move. Although she still believes it's important to work out hard and push yourself, this shouldn't be done at the expense of your posture and balance. "Studying Pilates has taught me how complicated our bodies are," Sonia says, "such as the connectivity between small muscles that support the bigger muscles that we think do all the work. It has given me more of an appreciation for moving correctly, with balance and striving for perfect form. It has also made me realize how important it is to strengthen under-used core muscles and stabilizers, as these are key to protecting from over-stress in other activities." She still understands the desire to put in a tough workout - and bounce around - but now knows that doing this is safer, and much better in the long run, with a properly balanced body. "And it's great to be able to share this knowledge with other people who love to exercise too - which is what I get from teaching at The Moving Body," she adds.
    Being a certified group exercise instructor and personal trainer, Chris has been spreading his passion for fitness and health over the past 10 years. His belief for fitness is three-fold: cardiovascular endurance and speed, overall body strength, flexibility and agility. Outside of the gym & studio environment, he has completed many triathlon races, marathons, and trail running races, both locally and overseas. Chris enjoys teaching classes and imparting his knowledge on fitness & health. It brings him joy to find out that his participants are enjoying themselves keeping fit and especially when they achieve their goals.
      Diandra has always been very active, engaging in a variety of sports ranging from gymnastics and trampoline to softball and swimming. She is a keen runner and has completed two marathons in the last ten years. After seven months of strict bed-rest during a difficult twin pregnancy, Diandra discovered Pilates as a way to restore her strength and flexibility. It also helped her recover from diastasis recti, which she suffered as a result of the pregnancy. Diandra was inspired by how Pilates helped her regain her health and functionality, and this in turn motivated her to undergo her teacher training in order to help others. Before motherhood and her journey to fitness, Diandra was in the corporate world, working in Marketing and Communications in Australia, Germany and Singapore.
