About Mat Pilates
Pilates is an exercise regime that aims at strengthening core muscles and targeting specific muscle groups. The core muscles are our powerhouse that helps to improve our posture, balance and coordination, and stabilise our spine. Enjoying regular Pilates exercises can help to build the foundational strength required for total body conditioning, correct muscle imbalances, and reduce muscle pain/weakness. Pilates is suitable for all ages, and can be used as a starting point to kickstart your fitness, or as an adjunctive to enhance your physical performance.
About the Instructor: Jeannie J Kim
Jeannie's passion for Pilates first started in 2016 when she underwent Pilates rehabilitative exercises to help her recover from a severe back injury. Her interest in Pilates soon evolved as she saw a much-needed change with her patients in the treatment room, as many of her clients were presenting with chronic injuries as a result of weak core and stabilising muscle groups. With this motivation, Jeannie obtained her qualification in Mat Pilates Instructor Training from Studio Pilates, a highly regarded and internationally recognised training facility. In her classes, Jeannie focuses on her students’ form and precision to produce healthy, happy and strong bodies. Classes can be booked online here.
