Goh Jia Yin -
Instructor

Jia Yin’s passion for movement began at a young age; she trained competitively in artistic gymnastics before treading into her first (Chinese) dance class at the age of 12. A leap of faith after graduating from Singapore Management University (SMU) saw her pursuing dance at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) in Singapore, then at State University of New York (SUNY) Purchase College under a scholarship from the National Arts Council (NAC).

Equipped with a Bachelor in Fine Arts (Dance), certifications and training in other movement modalities namely GYROTONIC®, GYROKINESIS®, and Balance Body® Pilates Mat and Reformer, Jia Yin juggles between teaching dance, Gyrotonic, Gyrokinesis, and Pilates at various studios and institutions. She is an adjunct lecturer at NAFA, and an artiste with The Human Expression (T.H.E) Dance Company’s Second Company, where she dances, choreographs, and teaches. 

Jia Yin finds joy and fulfillment in helping her clients and students tap into their potential of movement as a form of therapy, injury prevention, as well as athletic and mindfulness training to enhance performance. She is a firm believer that a functional body makes for a happy and expressive body.

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

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!
    Alethea has worked in both the private and public sectors for more than 15 years before making a switch to the movement industry. She was once diagnosed with severe myalgia pain; suspected to be caused by viral infections and for that short period, she had lost much of her hip mobility to even walk properly. During this time, Alethea started practicing Pilates which restored her sense of well-being, grounding her with an understanding of mind-body connection and giving her a sense of inner peace. Alethea's mid-career change was motivated by her desire to find freedom from chronic pains, support others on their journey to restoring health that could dramatically improve quality of life and empower them with movement awareness of their own bodies. Alethea works frequently with populations who has back, hip, knee & ankle conditions, stroke clients, older adults, prenatal, postnatal & diastasis recti recovery. Her love and passion to coach others rejuvenate their state of well-being is the core motivation for her drive. Alethea says "Move to Live Awesome"
      Valerie has a passion for fitness, she enjoys trying out various sporting activities from Yoga to Cross Fit. After attending her first Pilates class in 1998, she discovered that Pilates is gentle but challenging at the same time. It helped her be more aware of her posture, alignment and form. This inspired her to take the Teachers Training course. Valerie wanted to impart effective movement skills to her clients and help them change the way they move in daily life. Valerie decided to pursue her passion and is now a Pilates instructor with The Moving Body. She believes the elixir to youth is by keeping oneself strong with the integration of mind, body and spirit to create a life of balance.
