It was pure serendipity that Carol popped up on my FB feed. Practising with Carol has had an enormous impact on my mind and body, and put me in touch with the space within, in deep, loving and subtle way. Each class is a moving meditation, which really resonates with me. It's not easy finding the right teacher. And for this, I am immensely grateful.

Priyanka

I always had lower back pain issues, Carol's mindful pilates classes really helped me to stay balanced and be aware of my posture. After delivery, I continued the classes as it was important to gain back my strength and stamina.

I suffered from frozen shoulder. I went to chiropractor but couldn’t get it healed. My shoulder had recovered unknowingly while practising Mindful Pilates with Carol.

I attended Carol's 8-week Mindful Pilates course and it was a great experience. I learnt a lot about alignment and breathing which indirectly helped my yoga practice, as well.

How I can help you...

Carol Cheong

I have been teaching movements for more than 20 years and I highly recommend integrating mindful pilates with mindful breathing & proper relaxation in your practice, as it will enhance your spinal and mental health.

Many times, our chronic back pains are caused by our hectic lifestyles and mental or emotional stresses. If we want to relieve our chronic back pains for good, we need to balance both our body and mind to prevent the pain from returning.

We need movements to stay strong and the mindfulness approach, allows us to turn inwards (feel our breaths).
I help people to improve their postures, reduce chronic pains

and prevent injuries. Experience the mindful pilates with me and build strength mindfully and live pain free.

  • Certified Stott Pilates Instructor (Matwork)
  • Certified Sivananda Yoga Instructor (ATTC)
  • Certified Prenatal Teacher by The Centre for Women's Fitness by Carolyne Anthony
  • Certified Mental Wellness Coach & Facilitator

I know starting a movement programme can be challenging for some of you but if we value taking care of our spines for the long run, we will start now. Everyone wants to be pain free and not spend money on medical bills (absolutely avoidable).
