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

Margaret has 11 years of clinical experience working in private and restructured hospital settings, followed by Pilates training and teaching. After receiving her training in Singapore and The University of Sydney, Margaret started her career focusing on pediatrics and women's health conditions in Mount Alvernia Hospital. While in Tan Tock Seng hospital and rehabilitation centre, she dealt with a wide range of conditions of all age groups. Over the years, Margaret has developed special interest in geriatrics and neurological care. In her pursuit of skill enhancement to provide better care for her patients, Margaret discovered her new passion - clinical/rehabilitative pilates training. She received DMA clinical pilates training in Perth and rehab based pilates course under Polestar Pilates. Since then, for the past 4 years outside the hospital setting, she has been incorporating Pilates in her physiotherapy treatments, dealing with clients with acute to chronic conditions, from neurological disorder to musculoskeletal related problems. She believes in working with her clients and giving them the skills and knowledge to manage their symptoms for long-term recovery.
    Olga discovered Pilates in 2012 while living in Shanghai. Her previous career involved sitting in the office for long periods of time, which caused problems with her posture resulting in neck and back pain. Her chiropractor recommended her to try some Pilates sessions which she instantaneously fell in love with.Pilates appealed to Olga as it teaches the way our body moves and functions. It can be gentle but also challenging at times. And the best thing about Pilates is that is effective for people with different fitness levels. Recognising the benefits of Pilates, Olga decided to pursue a certification in Pilates and has completed the Balanced Body Mat Certification. She believes Pilates not only helps to improve your posture and strengthen the body, but also gives you more energy and a sense of general well-being. "Guiding people to healthier and happier lives makes me happy!"
      Mary graduated from Trinity College Dublin in 2016 with a BSc in Physiotherapy (Hons). Since graduating, Mary spent two years working in an acute hospital setting. She has completed rotations in orthopaedics, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal outpatients and geriatric rehabilitation. Having run osteoarthritis and cardiac rehabilitation classes, she is a firm believer of the benefits of exercise as medicine in both acute and chronic conditions. During her musculoskeletal rotation she developed a passion for post operative recovery and return to sport including ACL and rotator cuff repair rehabilitation. Being an avid runner, swimmer and footballer herself, Mary understands the importance of being in peak condition and returning to sport following an injury.
