Sophie Ki -

Sophie’s love for Pilates started from a misfortune. She used to dance ballet recreationally until that
hobby was cut short when an injury prevented her from continuing to dance. She then turned to
Pilates as an alternative form of fitness.
Fast forward seven years, Sophie is now a certified Pilates instructor who is also interested in various
movement modalities that complement her Pilates practice and teaching.
Her goal as an instructor is to help clients feel confident about their bodies, and have the freedom to
move and live. She feels energised and deeply satisfied when she can share her methods with her
clients and make a positive impact in their lives.
She holds a BSc in Life Sciences and it became a building block in her interest in human physiology.
She is constantly learning – taking up additional courses like nutrition and specific certification courses
like Franklin Method. She even took a human cadaver dissection course to learn more about human
anatomy and internal systems!
Sophie is available to teach in both Korean and English.

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

Diandra has always been very active, engaging in a variety of sports ranging from gymnastics and trampoline to softball and swimming. She is a keen runner and has completed two marathons in the last ten years. After seven months of strict bed-rest during a difficult twin pregnancy, Diandra discovered Pilates as a way to restore her strength and flexibility. It also helped her recover from diastasis recti, which she suffered as a result of the pregnancy. Diandra was inspired by how Pilates helped her regain her health and functionality, and this in turn motivated her to undergo her teacher training in order to help others. Before motherhood and her journey to fitness, Diandra was in the corporate world, working in Marketing and Communications in Australia, Germany and Singapore.
    Sudha was introduced to Pilates in 2007 when she received 10 Pilates session as a birthday gift and she hasn't looked back since then. Starting out as a client she found it helped with her own knee issues and lower back pain. She slowly got interested in learning as well. Starting with BASI course in 2008, she then went on to do the Mat, Reformer and Apparatus course from Balanced Body. With her interest in learning new methods of helping clients, she continued with her CoreAlign course and certification. She has always been interested in Women's health and has furthered this by learning how Pilates helps with various women's health issues.
      Hwee Kheng has been actively involved in movement most of her life. She started Pilates over 10 years ago to help with her lower back pain. Her regular practice in Pilates, as well as the GYROTONIC® method, together with all her other training, not only helped strengthen her core and back, it also helped her move mindfully which is important to minimize injuries and effectively recover from one. She is grateful that she can continue to do many things she enjoyed and to try new experiences and challenges (including aerial arts) that she probably would have difficulties with when she was younger! This philosophy and approach carries over to her work as an instructor – she enjoys working with and coaching clients to move more mindfully and effectively, so that in turn they can be better in dealing with their life challenges. She had experiences working with clients with shoulders, back, and knee issues to help them strengthen and improve from pain.
