What is something people might be surprised to know about you?
I guess people would be surprised to know that my IC describes my race as Caucasian, but that’s from my grandfather who is French. I’ll definitely consider myself more of a Eurasian. Combination of Chinese, Portuguese, Filipino, Spanish and French. Like Rojak!
You have traveled to many countries, what was your favorite place to visit?
Cape Town, South Africa. I have been twice for holiday. The beach, weather, cafes, the people – I love it all and would definitely go again!
What does your exercise routine look like?
One of my favourite ways to work out recently is to do a 15mins fast-paced pilates mat-work then head to my nearby fitness corner for whatever I’m in the mood for that day (pull-ups/band workout). I will then complete my workout off with a 3/4km jog.
As a fitness enthusiast, what is something you would like to try next?
I have always wanted to learn salsa dancing and the tango to be part of my fitness regime. Anyone wanna be my partner? Let me know 😉
What does Pilates mean to you?
Pilates to me is a privilege. I know not anyone has the means to learn it and I hope I’ll never take the knowledge I’ve gained from Pilates for granted. Every Pilates class to me is also an opportunity to grow, build awareness of your body, and practice being in control of how it moves.
What are you looking forward most to teaching?
I am most looking forward to meeting people who are trying Pilates for the first time! What an honor it is to introduce what Pilates is all about? Also, I’m excited to learn and grow as an instructor even as I teach others.
How has the Breathe Pilates Training Program been so far for you?
So far it has been quite intensive. I have already learned so much from both the instructors mentoring us and from fellow Instructors. The best thing about the program is the wealth of knowledge you gain as a result of the effort you choose to put in. It’s a rewarding experience! I’m also grateful for how supportive everyone in the studio has been.
What is your teaching style?
I would say I’m detail-oriented and I ensure clients know the intention behind each movement. I also aim to put emphasis on proper transitions even between exercises. At the same time, be prepared to hear me laugh at my own jokes because I have too much fun when I teach!
