Alongside Pilates, Claire has a passion for running, in particular long distance events.
    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”.
      Gen first started Pilates 8 years ago, in an attempt at finding a solution to scoliosis-related back pain,and it changed her life. She credits Pilates for her having a pain-free, smooth pregnancy in spite of scoliosis. Gen lives by the mantra, “Everything Happens for a Reason”, because having been a litigation lawyer, and then spending many years in the commercial insurance industry, Gen’s route to joining the movement industry was not a straightforward one. She became a Pilates instructor chiefly to share the numerous benefits of regular Pilates practice with as many people as possible. Gen strongly believes that the mind-body connection fundamental to Pilates practice makes for safe and effective movement. Regular Pilates practice results in functional movement because it builds not only strength and flexibility, but also trains balance and proprioception. This means that Pilates can complement practically every lifestyle and fitness regime, whether a person is into high-impact sport, low-impact flow, or just wants to be able to balance better on a crowded bus! Pilates exercises can be modified almost limitlessly, making Pilates suitable for people of all ages and physical conditions (professional athletes, those with injury/chronic pain, pregnant women, etc.)
