Sky Pilates was founded by three experienced Pilates enthusiasts and friends who shared a common dream of building a little haven to spread the joy of Pilates. Started in 2005, the studio has since grown to include a full team of highly-qualified instructors and a comprehensive selection of classes to cater to a wide range of clients with different needs. Today, Geraldine, Seok and Teresa still remain committed to their vision of quality, individualised attention for clients. They continue teaching classes personally and selecting only the best instructors to join the Sky Pilates team.

Jan

As someone who used to suffer from very extreme pain from a slipped disc, Jan can testify that Pilates is one of the most effective rehabilitation and core strengthening methods.  After witnessing the remarkable effect Pilates had on his posture and mobility, Jan’s interest in Pilates was piqued and he vowed to study this method further.  He went on to train under Polestar Pilates and attained his Matwork certification in 2012.

When he’s not at work, he can be seen teaching and practising Pilates, and working out in the gym. His wish is to help his clients look and feel better from inside out.
