Valerie Yew -
Instructor

Valerie has a passion for fitness, she enjoys trying out various sporting activities from Yoga to Cross Fit. After attending her first Pilates class in 1998, she discovered that Pilates is gentle but challenging at the same time. It helped her be more aware of her posture, alignment and form.

This inspired her to take the Teachers Training course. Valerie wanted to impart effective movement skills to her clients and help them change the way they move in daily life.

Valerie decided to pursue her passion and is now a Pilates instructor with The Moving Body. She believes the elixir to youth is by keeping oneself strong with the integration of mind, body and spirit to create a life of balance.

    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.
