Kwan Yue Tong -
Instructor

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.

Sophie’s love for Pilates started from a misfortune. She used to dance ballet recreationally until that hobby was cut short when an injury prevented her from continuing to dance. She then turned to Pilates as an alternative form of fitness. Fast forward seven years, Sophie is now a certified Pilates instructor who is also interested in various movement modalities that complement her Pilates practice and teaching. Her goal as an instructor is to help clients feel confident about their bodies, and have the freedom to move and live. She feels energised and deeply satisfied when she can share her methods with her clients and make a positive impact in their lives. She holds a BSc in Life Sciences and it became a building block in her interest in human physiology. She is constantly learning - taking up additional courses like nutrition and specific certification courses like Franklin Method. She even took a human cadaver dissection course to learn more about human anatomy and internal systems! Sophie is available to teach in both Korean and English.
    Hwee Kheng has been actively involved in movement most of her life. She started Pilates over 10 years ago to help with her lower back pain. Her regular practice in Pilates, as well as the GYROTONIC® method, together with all her other training, not only helped strengthen her core and back, it also helped her move mindfully which is important to minimize injuries and effectively recover from one. She is grateful that she can continue to do many things she enjoyed and to try new experiences and challenges (including aerial arts) that she probably would have difficulties with when she was younger! This philosophy and approach carries over to her work as an instructor – she enjoys working with and coaching clients to move more mindfully and effectively, so that in turn they can be better in dealing with their life challenges. She had experiences working with clients with shoulders, back, and knee issues to help them strengthen and improve from pain.

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.
