Shuri finds fulfilment in helping clients especially office workers to tackle their disorders and pain caused by the modern lifestyle.

In 2011, she took the GYROTONIC® training qualification and commenced teaching at a specialised GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® studio in Osaka, Japan.

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

Sonia has tons of energy and enthusiasm, and she bounces everywhere. She bounced from Seoul to Europe to America and Japan before finally landing - on both feet and with bent knees of course - in Singapore, just over 6 and half years ago. Everywhere Sonia has been, she has taken exercise very seriously. She has been to gyms, studied all kinds of classes, and had different personal trainers - but only in Pilates has she found a discipline that is serious about studying the way our bodies move. Although she still believes it's important to work out hard and push yourself, this shouldn't be done at the expense of your posture and balance. "Studying Pilates has taught me how complicated our bodies are," Sonia says, "such as the connectivity between small muscles that support the bigger muscles that we think do all the work. It has given me more of an appreciation for moving correctly, with balance and striving for perfect form. It has also made me realize how important it is to strengthen under-used core muscles and stabilizers, as these are key to protecting from over-stress in other activities." She still understands the desire to put in a tough workout - and bounce around - but now knows that doing this is safer, and much better in the long run, with a properly balanced body. "And it's great to be able to share this knowledge with other people who love to exercise too - which is what I get from teaching at The Moving Body," she adds.
    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.
