I’m a STOTTS PILATES certified instructor and have been practicing Pilates for 6 years and teaching for the last 2 years. Growing up with a mother who was a former Singapore national athlete and a father who was a competitive boxer, I was naturally a sporty child and have always had a keen interest in fitness. My journey in Pilates started in 2009 when I suffered a lower back sprain and had to put all strenuous exercise on hold. During my recovery, my doctor advised me to take up Pilates to strengthen my back.

At the time I was a gym and yoga junkie and had no prior experience of Pilates but one morning I reluctantly decided to join a Pilates mat work class. Amazingly I felt an immediate difference after just the first session. I recall feeling more limber and stronger. After further sessions I saw my posture dramatically improve and after prolonged commitment to a Pilates regime I noticed I had a completely new body and, most importantly, my back pain was completely gone. By then I was hooked on Pilates and whenever I had some spare time you’d find me at the studio perfecting my technique.

I was into my 3rd year of practicing Pilates when my instructor asked me whether I’d ever consider teaching. Coincidentally, I just happened to be looking for a change of career at this time. It took me a while to come around to the idea as, whilst I really enjoyed Pilates, I knew it would be challenging to transition from a corporate industry to the fitness industry. Finally after a full year, I decided to follow my passion and I haven’t looked back since.

Now I’m a certified Pilates mat work and reformer instructor, teaching 6 days a week. Through my work I’m blessed with the opportunity to meet many amazing people and I get a great deal of satisfaction from helping them achieve their health and fitness goals through my teaching. I see Pilates as a form of continuing education and constantly seek to learn, build on my knowledge and hone my skills.

Thanks & regards,

Melanie
