How did you get into Pilates?
I was looking for an exercise that I could do regularly. When I tried Pilates for the first time, it gave my core a very good workout and it required me to increase my flexibility. I was instantly addicted and kept going back to perfect my form.
Why did you become an instructor?
There was a time where I couldn’t stop thinking about Pilates. My brain couldn’t stop imagining doing teasers, hundreds and rollovers. I decided to quit my job and dedicate a year to explore Pilates instruction and see how it goes. Here I am in my fifth year as a Pilates instructor, and never once regretted my decision.
What do you love about Pilates?
I love how versatile Pilates is. It can be beginner-friendly, a high intensity workout, or even used for rehab. Pilates is also slow-paced enough that you can focus on both your body and mind, paying attention to how your muscles and spine moves. Plus, I feel good about myself after every Pilates session!
Fitness or Technical classes?
Fitness classes when I do it, technical classes when I teach. I like solving problems. When clients have difficulty with certain movements, I like to analyse and approach with different angles so that my clients move and feel better.
