Jane stumbled upon Pilates when she was nursing her bad knee. After experiencing how practicing Pilates rid her of knee pain and hip pain, she fell in love with it and was determined to become a Pilates teacher.
Jane is no stranger to teaching. She was a Secondary School teacher and she loved her craft. Why not have the best of both worlds? She began sharing about movement, generating appreciation of alignment, and growing confidence in her students.
Her group classes are devoted to helping her students gain more awareness in their bodies so they can achieve mobility and strength. Beyond making fun and challenging movements accessible for all, Jane is a firm believer that anyone can receive the benefits by practicing regularly.
In her personal training sessions, Jane patiently help students overcome their pain and grow confidence in movement. She adapts the releases, stretches and exercises accordingly. She loves seeing her students grow stronger while achieving their goals and new goals year after year.
As an educator, Jane is nurturing and encouraging. Even though she has knowledge to share, she understands that her student-teacher, too, have something to teach her.
Jane has been instrumental in my journey
I have 2 levels of prolapsed discs in my lower lumbar spine, pain is an everyday occurrence. Not many instructors who profess to know Pilates dare to take up my case and those who are brave enough sometimes are just not creative enough to make a difference.
I stepped into the PBT studio on Amoy a few years ago, not knowing any of the instructors on the wall! Jane attended to me, patiently answered my numerous questions and convinced me that she could help. I was initially apprehensive but I am so glad we gave each other a chance. Every session, Jane patiently devised exercises and kept coming up with different alternatives that were effective but did not trigger those back spasms. We steadily worked through my many problem areas and injuries (there were quite a few!). When I first started, I suffered from back spasms every other month. I am very happy to say that in the past year, I do not recall any significant back pain episodes and can largely manage with work and family life. Jane has been instrumental in this journey. She relentlessly reminds me of my goal to be pain-free, to be a strong mum to my over-sized baby, and is a constant source of joy and positiveness. Life is enjoyable now. I cannot thank her enough.
