Samantha Lim -
Intructor

Having experienced backache in her younger days due to bad posture, Samantha decided to try Pilates after learning the benefits from her Chiropractor. After 4 years of practice, she embarked on a journey of discovering Pilates through the eyes of an instructor and being more focused in body awareness.

Using herself as an example of someone who prefers not to “sweat it out in a gym”, she believes that Pilates is an approachable exercise for everyone with different fitness levels.

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

Starting off as a client, Sarah Lin started Pilates as a compliment to her triathlon training, which often left her with muscle tightness and injuries. Sarah recognised that Pilates was different from other fitness methods she had tried, and was determined to learn more. 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.
