May Ng BN – Instructor
It was through dancing that May was introduced to Pilates some 12 years ago. What started out as a de-stressing channel to strike work-life balance within the challenging work environment she was in, has evolved into a passion and life-long pursuit, thereby, she has danced competitively for 10 years. Pilates was the activity used to complement her competitive dance in which the Pilates technique emphasizes the strengthening the abdominal muscles in specific fashion to gain better movement control and balance.
Yearning to better understand use of muscles groups and how to integrate movements, May enrolled on the programme to become a certified Pilates instructor. This journey has opened her eyes and mind to the realization that when the body moves and functions efficiently, backaches or tightness in the shoulders, commonly accepted by many as part of daily life, can be prevented.
To top the various health benefits of Pilates, having diagnosed with Grade 2 Spondylolisthesis with Lumbar4/5 joints misalignment, Pilates has enabled May with efficient movements and well manages the aches and burning pain from nerve impingement usually common for people with lumbar joints misalignment.
Harnessing her dancing and Pilates abilities, May’s workout sessions embody movement, grace and fluidity in perfect harmony.

I love Pilates for it is a low impact yet challenging and fun exercise. It is suitable for anyone regardless of age. I see improvement in my flexibility, strength and balance after starting Pilates. I came to be more aware of mind to body connection. That was when I decided to embark on my journey as a Pilates Instructor, so that I can share and guide others with the pieces I learnt. I hope to encourage others to move well and improve their posture.
