Cheslyn started practicing Pilates about 10 years ago with the initial intention to expand her repertoire of the types of group classes she teaches. As she started to experience the benefits in her body, she believes Pilates can help establish a great foundation for people to move safely and efficiently.
“Movement is life. Let’s keep moving.”
She has been teaching exercise and movement since 2004. As a full-time exercise instructor, she has had many clients suffering from aches and pains, which spurs her on to want to learn on ways to help alleviate their discomfort, or prevent movement related injuries.
Believing that pain-free movement is vital to the quality of life, one of Cheslyn’s passion is to help people stay active all through life, to help live life to the fullest.
What is your best advice when starting Pilates?
Going slow could actually get you a better work out.
What inspired you to become a Pilates teacher?
Initially, it was to expand my skill set. As I did more training, I realised that Pilates is a great tool for helping clients to improve their awareness and quality of life. It is also a good way to keep the body from de-conditioning whilst recovering from injuries.
