Yizhen Lim -
Instructor

A freelance dancer/dance teacher trained in jazz, hip hop, salsa and contemporary dance, Yizhen loves exploring different dance genres and ways of movement. An NUS Dance Ensemble alumna, she also graduated from L.A. Dance Connection’s Scholarship Programme (SG), and Broadway Dance Center’s International Student Visa Program (NY), receiving the Outstanding Student Award (September 2011) and mentoring with Sheila Barker, Joy Karley, Jamie J. & Co. and Jared Grimes. She has performed extensively locally and overseas, and taught at various dance studios, schools and fitness centers.

Yizhen discovered Pilates in 2010 while training in New York, after spraining her knee and dealing with existing back injuries. Intensive Pilates practice positively transformed her alignment, flexibility and core strength, allowing her to cope with the athleticism of dancing. That inspired her to study Pilates and help others by sharing her experiences. She is a certified Balanced Body Pilates instructor (Mat, Reformer and Apparatus), and trained in the Balanced Body curriculum to teach CoreAlign®. She is committed to helping individuals from all walks of life strengthen their bodies in a pain free and holistic manner, and constantly upgrading her skills via continuing education to effectively communicate and share the benefits of Pilates with everyone!

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

Having experienced backache in her younger days due to bad posture, Samantha decided to try Pilates after learning the benefits from her Chiropractor. After 4 years of practice, she embarked on a journey of discovering Pilates through the eyes of an instructor and being more focused in body awareness. Using herself as an example of someone who prefers not to "sweat it out in a gym", she believes that Pilates is an approachable exercise for everyone with different fitness levels.
    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.
