Pilates training

  • Joseph Pilates
  • Romana Kryzanowska
  • Cynthia Lochard
  • Sophia Oh

Sophia is one of the country's most highly trained and certified Pilates teachers. She learned Pilates from Cynthia Lochard who in turn was taught by Romana Kryzanowska - one of Joseph Pilates original 8 disciples. Unlike the other disciples, Romana has remained true to Joseph Pilates' original method, now known as the Authentic method.

Yoga training

Sophia is as equally practiced in Ashtanga yoga as she is in Pilates. She was guided in India by Sri K Patthabi Jois, one of the most famous yogi's alive. Further training in India, Australia and Singapore have developed Sophia's understanding and experience of yoga.
