Gary Tham -
Instructor

Gary has an active lifestyle and enjoys kayaking, dragon boating, rock climbing and running. Through personal experience of injuries sustained from these sports, Gary is adamant that one has to move correctly in order to avoid injuries.

He strongly advocates having good strength, flexibility and mobility to enjoy life’s daily activities. Gary is always keen to share his experience on how Pilates will help improve overall strength and mobility of the body. He finds great joy when he sees their body enhanced through Pilates.

The phase, “Never stop learning to improve” has stayed with Gary since he took up Pilates. He believes that through Pilates, one can understand how our body can be strengthened through effective movement.

Besides Pilates, Gary is also Sports Massage trained. He was forced to seek treatments due to joints and muscles ache from the sporting lifestyle he had. When he recovered, his beliefs in complementary therapy grew stronger. Hence, the decision to pursue a Sports Massage diploma to complement his Pilates teaching. Thus far, Gary has helped some of his clients recover from their pains and aches sustained from their active lifestyle and it has certainly encouraged him to continue helping others to achieve the same.

Gary aims to help his clients regain a pain free body to enjoy the daily activities in life.

    Celine has always had a keen interest in fitness and movement starting with teaching Group Exercise classes during her university days. Her first experience with Pilates was in 2004 and she has been a convert ever since! Celine started her career as a lawyer and continued to practice while teaching Pilates. Shortly after she had her first child in 2011, it was a natural progression to retire from the corporate world and focus on teaching. Celine has not looked back since. Celine has been teaching with The Moving Body since 2011 and she recently took a short hiatus when she moved to Hong Kong from 2018-2020 where she also taught a little Pilates there. She is now back in Singapore, and is teaching at the East Coast studio. Having had 3 kids herself, Celine has a particular interest in working with prenatal and postnatal clients and believes in the benefits and rehabilitation that Pilates brings in this area. She has also pursued further education in this respect and hopes to do more. Celine also loves teaching group classes and enjoys the energy and flow from the classes. She hopes to make each class challenging yet fun and enjoyable. The strength and flow that comes from a regular Pilates practice has continued to inspire Celine over the past 10 years and she hopes to similarly inspire and convince her clients of the benefits of Pilates and regular movement! Out of the Pilates studio, you will also find Celine dabbling in some boxing and strength training which she believes is a great complement to Pilates!

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.
