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

Candice is a Canadian trained physiotherapist who was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. Her early work experience started in 2009 in Vancouver where she worked in acute care with complex geriatric patients. She continued onto the neurological rehab setting where she worked with individuals with spinal cord injuries at a leading university teaching hospital in Toronto. She has since completed additional education in running assessment and training, and prenatal and postnatal rehab, and has honed her skills in the musculoskeletal private practice setting where she sees all types of clients from sports to office related injuries. She also brings forth her experience as a busy mom of two boys and can relate to the physical and mental demands of being a parent! As a certified Yoga and Pilates instructor, Candice has a strong focus on exercise-based rehabilitation. She works closely with clients to identify their personal goals and strives to provide a well-rounded treatment plan that is not only aimed at symptom relief but on strengthening and re-conditioning the mind and body in order to return to sport and daily function with confidence and with prevention of re-injury. She merges the knowledge of evidence-based therapy options with her patient’s values and preferences. Candice always practices with compassion and is a strong believer in a holistic approach to health care.
    June first brush with teaching came when her lecturer encouraged her to teach an aerobics class as part of her assignment. She has never looked back since and has been in the fitness industry since 2013. She started her career in Certis Cisco as a fitness trainer for the army recruits. June started attending spinning classes with her friend and was inspired by the energy of the instructors so she signed up for the Les Mills RPM Training. June’s life revolves around health and fitness and manages a healthy balanced lifestyle. She believes in healthy eating, with a good balance of exercise and sufficient sleep. In her free time, June still visits the gym and attends classes to get inspiration for her classes. June gets her motivation from her clients who enjoy the workout. June believes that workouts should always be fun, and of course, safe. Exercising should never be seen as a 'punishment', because being able to move is a gift.
      Passionate about helping her clients feel energised and confident, Gabby will make sure that you leave class with a smile on your face! Introduced to pilates back in college, she loved how pilates was a great way to heal, a moving meditation, and a great workout. Through regular sessions, she improved her physical strength, gained more flexibility and was even able to achieve her goal of running a full marathon. She's also a new mother to a young baby and she credits pilates for her pain-free pregnancy and smooth labour. Fun-fact: Bookstores are my happy place!
