Gen Wong -
Instructor

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.)

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!
    Yue Tong began dancing and performing at an early age. She started training at Singapore Ballet Academy and subsequently went on to further her studies in contemporary dance. She believes that Pilates is suitable for everyone – from simple stretching and strengthening of the core to others that require a more athletic challenge and approach. Practicing Pilates has allowed her a deeper understanding and awareness of the body. As an athlete herself, Yue Tong understands the needs of the physical body and looks forward to help others move, train and perform more efficiently. Yue Tong turns to GYROKINESIS® when she needs to mobilise and reduce tension to her spine. It has helped to improve her posture, she feels that GYROKINESIS® not only relates to dancers but to non-dancers as well. She is certified in GYROKINESIS® Level 1 and is also trained in Pilates. Yue Tong hopes to share her experience with these movement methods to benefit others.
