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

Mary graduated from Trinity College Dublin in 2016 with a BSc in Physiotherapy (Hons). Since graduating, Mary spent two years working in an acute hospital setting. She has completed rotations in orthopaedics, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal outpatients and geriatric rehabilitation.

Being an avid runner, swimmer and footballer herself, Mary understands the importance of being in peak condition and returning to sport following an injury.
    A freelance dancer/dance teacher trained in jazz, hip hop, salsa and contemporary dance, Yizhen loves exploring different dance genres and ways of movement. An NUS Dance Ensemble alumna, she also graduated from L.A. Dance Connection's Scholarship Programme (SG), and Broadway Dance Center's International Student Visa Program (NY), receiving the Outstanding Student Award (September 2011) and mentoring with Sheila Barker, Joy Karley, Jamie J. & Co. and Jared Grimes. She has performed extensively locally and overseas, and taught at various dance studios, schools and fitness centers. Yizhen discovered Pilates in 2010 while training in New York, after spraining her knee and dealing with existing back injuries. Intensive Pilates practice positively transformed her alignment, flexibility and core strength, allowing her to cope with the athleticism of dancing. That inspired her to study Pilates and help others by sharing her experiences. She is a certified Balanced Body Pilates instructor (Mat, Reformer and Apparatus), and trained in the Balanced Body curriculum to teach CoreAlign®. She is committed to helping individuals from all walks of life strengthen their bodies in a pain free and holistic manner, and constantly upgrading her skills via continuing education to effectively communicate and share the benefits of Pilates with everyone!
      It is easy to attribute Wany’s expertise to over 10 years of industry experience; but in reality, it is due to her personal belief that the key to a good life is moving well. Her approach to exercise is fuelled by this principle of fundamental movement and drives her to create personalized, targeted plans to unlock movement potential in her clients. She pulls from her extensive and constantly growing knowledge base – she is a graduate of sports and exercises science, certified in varied Pilates techniques (Balanced Body, STOTT, Gyrotonic), TRX, endurance and Bootcamp training, and precision nutrition among others. The results speak for themselves, as her clients experience holistic improvement in their strength, flexibility, and pain levels. She also enjoys conducting group classes both high intensity or low impact. Wany’s classes are as challenging as they are fun. Recognised by Nike for her skills and energetic vibe, she currently holds a Master Trainer role in SoutheastAsia. She conducts training in the region and is a consultant for the SEA team for program modifications. Wany is always looking out for new perspectives and techniques to include in her teaching arsenal. In her free time, Wany dabbles in various sports, yoga, and meditation. Her life’s work is centred around ageing gracefully to live independently without pain, for herself and the community.
