As a fitness enthusiast since young, Ann Ho was exposed to the Pilates exercise in 2003. Amazed by how it connects the mind and body plus her interests in human biomechanics, she became an an instructor in order to spread the true benefits of Pilates to others. Ann spent 2 years doing full time training and understudying as apprentice, until she finally got her professional qualifications as a Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) Certified Pilates Teacher in 2008. She derives satisfaction from seeing her clients having more ease in movement and improved postures as it equates to higher quality of life since they could stay mobile and independent for long. The quote she always likes to share is “The ranges of motion that you use are the ranges of motion that you get to use in the future”.
    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.
      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.
