Karen Kim -
Instructor

Karen embraced Pilates due to her scoliosis. She has suffered from back, neck and shoulder pain since her teenage years and she tried a lot of different exercises such as yoga, belly dancing, long-distance running and finally Pilates. In her 7 years of practicing Pilates, her scoliosis was managed tremendously. 

She fell in love with Pilates and decided to get certified as a Pilates instructor to pass on knowledge to her clients and help people find comfort and benefit from movement. She believes that movement should be fun and inspiring. Karen is able to teach her classes in both Korean and English. 

In her free time, you can find her at one of Singapore’s beautiful golf courses playing golf or at a tennis court playing tennis with her husband.

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

Ana started her journey with Pilates when she joined The Moving Body as a Customer Service executive in 2011. Whilst here, Ana has witnessed clients that have come in with movement and body alignment issues and after some sessions, they had better posture and felt better moving. This prompted Ana to try out Pilates and she noticed the difference in her body. She realised how Pilates can help an individual tone up, build a strong body and mind. This motivated her to embark on her journey to become a Pilates instructor. As an instructor, she would like to help to clients have a better body awareness that leads to improved body movement and reduce the risk of getting injured.
Candice is a Canadian trained physiotherapist who was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. Her early work experience started in 2009 in Vancouver where she worked in acute care with complex geriatric patients. She continued onto the neurological rehab setting where she worked with individuals with spinal cord injuries at a leading university teaching hospital in Toronto. She has since completed additional education in running assessment and training, and prenatal and postnatal rehab, and has honed her skills in the musculoskeletal private practice setting where she sees all types of clients from sports to office related injuries. She also brings forth her experience as a busy mom of two boys and can relate to the physical and mental demands of being a parent! As a certified Yoga and Pilates instructor, Candice has a strong focus on exercise-based rehabilitation. She works closely with clients to identify their personal goals and strives to provide a well-rounded treatment plan that is not only aimed at symptom relief but on strengthening and re-conditioning the mind and body in order to return to sport and daily function with confidence and with prevention of re-injury. She merges the knowledge of evidence-based therapy options with her patient’s values and preferences. Candice always practices with compassion and is a strong believer in a holistic approach to health care.
    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.
