Clarissa Ng

 

 

Sports and wellness have been a part of Clarissa’s life since she was younger. She has been an active dancer since the age of 9. Her passion spurred her to start her fitness journey, including regular gym sessions, nutrition, before finally pursuing certification.

 

She realised that one’s health journey is more than the ‘ideal body type’ photo you post on your social media. Talking to friends she met, she realised that many others go through the same mindset.

 

Clarissa discovered the beauty of Pilates - body awareness, core and flexibility, and started recognising the wonders of the human body. With proper awareness of how one’s body moves and reacts, one is able to train their bodies more efficiently.

 

Since starting Pilates, Clarissa has learned to appreciate her own body and is continuing to deepen her knowledge in the field. Her wish is to help others to embrace and empower their unique body types for the way it is and promote body positivity.

Kimberly Lim 

 

 

Kimberly was diagnosed with scoliosis at a very young age and was recommended to start swimming to mobilise the spine. She went into competitive swimming for many years but eventually stopped due to allergic complications from the sun and chlorine. This led her to venture into other activities like weight training but she unfortunately sustained an annular sprain on her lower back during one session. This was a major disruption to her active lifestyle and she had to refrain from doing any high-impact activities for 3 to 4 months – even sitting down or jumping for more than 10 minutes brought pain.

 

During this down-time, Kimberly was recommend to do Pilates for rehabilitation for about 4-5 times a week. She found that Pilates helped to improve her lower back strength and she no longer suffered from pain as long as she limited her flexion exercises. Since then, she has been very careful in exercising good posture and form in her day-to-day life.

 

Inspired by the changes she saw in her own body, Kimberly decided to get her teaching certification in Pilates to spread her knowledge and experience to others. Her vision is to empower people to reap the benefits of Pilates and help them gain better control and mobility in their bodies. Her enthusiasm and love of the method is evident to everyone who comes her way.

    Charmaine Ang

  •  

  •  

  • Growing up with bad postural habits and a lack of body awareness, together with the gruelling demands of her corporate job in Legal and Compliance, Charmaine suffered from years of constant knee and back pain. She was first recommended by a physiotherapist ten years ago to Pilates as a form of rehabilitation. Not only did the pain gradually went away, her body felt lighter, and her energy levels improved. Before that, Charmaine tried several forms of therapy, but nothing else struck a chord like Pilates.

  •  

  • Passionate about the transformative impact of Pilates, Charmaine decided to pursue Pilates to share with others on its benefits as a lifestyle. She firmly believes that each body is uniquely different, and her goal is to inspire and empower clients to be the best version of themselves.
