Taeko Farthing – Pilates Instructor
Country:

Taeko was born in Japan and has been living in Singapore since 2005 with her English husband and four children. She started learning Pilates at Options Pilates Studio in 2009 after the birth of her second child. As she coped with the demands of motherhood, Taeko noticed the gradual change in her posture over time. Realizing the need to maintain her body postural alignment and strength, she decided to do Pilates seriously – and found that it helped her body recover very fast after child birth!

 

She started to understand that Pilates is a mind and body program that can build strong foundations for all types of people and lifestyles. In Taeko’s own words, “If you visit this website, you already know what you need. It’s time to get started for your future!!!”

Melissa Pascual – Pilates Instructor
Country:

The demands of Melissa’s previous career in corporate management took its toll on her body and mind. This eventually led to a strong conviction that health and body awareness should be some of the foremost priorities in life.

 

Melissa was active in sports such as swimming, taekwondo, running, badminton and Ultimate Frisbee. She even kept up with a gym routine in the hopes that it would increase her endurance and performance in these activities. She realized, however that the gym work did not suffice to fully condition her body to perform competitively. These strenuous sports weakened and strained her knees and she eventually required rehabilitation.

 

In her search to find another avenue to work out safely, Melissa found Pilates - an intelligent exercise that enhanced her overall performance in sports. It not only helped her strengthen her core but gave her deeper understanding of her body - a stronger sense of awareness to perform and move optimally.

 

Having obtained her Pilates training and certification at Options Pilates Singapore, Melissa now wants to share her joy in helping fellow athletes, sports lovers and anyone who simply wants to strengthen their body for overall fitness.

King Patrick – Marcelo Pilates Instructor
Country:

Patrick is a licensed nurse by profession. Having the experience of working in a hospital and clinic set-up, he is adept at caring for different types of patients from newborns to geriatrics, men to women. His desire to help others grow in wellness, combined with his love for exercise, prompted him to start his fitness career soon after.

 

He began as a licensed lifeguard in a fitness center back in the Philippines where he was eventually introduced to the world of Pilates by one of the instructors. Initially he was hesitant, believing that Pilates was only for ladies. He has now realized that the benefits of Pilates extend to everyone, even men!

 

In 2011, Patrick completed his official training in Pilates in Singapore. He went on to teach in Options Studio (Manila) and was often invited to be the guest instructor at Absolute Pilates, Bangkok. Currently with six years of teaching experience, he is still constantly seeking to expand and develop his teaching skills and knowledge.

Kimberly Lim – Pilates Instructor
Country:

I’ve been diagnosed with scoliosis at a very young age and was recommended to start swimming to mobilize my spine. I went into competitive swimming and over the years, due to the complication of the sun and chlorine – I had to stop swimming.

 

I ventured into other activities, however, due to my flexibility, I injured my lower back. I couldn’t even sit down for more than 20 min without pain.

 

I did Pilates almost about 4 times a week.
With Pilates- It has elevated by lower back issue. I do not suffer from lower back pain anymore. I’m very careful with myself since- to inhabit good posture and form in my day-to-day life.

 

With this, I decided to learn and get certified in Pilates to spread my knowledge and experience to anyone out there to benefit from this or to have better control and mobility with their body.
It is about precise movement with control. I got myself certified and am spreading my enthusiasm and love of Pilates to everyone.

Katrina Santos-Mercado – Pilates Instructor
Country:

From her humble beginnings in the Philippines, Katrina has grown to be one of the most respectable artists in the field of dance. She has been singled out by critics for her innate musicality, unforced line, delicate neck and beautiful face, and she has continued to charm the Philippine dance scene since she became a member of the Dance Theater Philippines, Philippine Ballet Theater and Ballet Philippines.

 

From being a professional ballet dancer, she also taught dance in reputable dance schools in Manila implementing the Australian Conservatoire of Ballet Syllabus. A graduate of the University of the Philippines College of Music with a Bachelor of Music degree major in Dance, she has been department chair and lecturer of the DLS-CSB School of Design and Arts-Bachelor of Performing Arts in dance.

 

Her passion in teaching found its way to Pilates. As a former ballet dancer, it was interesting for her to find the connection and application of Pilates to dance. Having understood Pilates in a deeper sense, she became more amazed with how Pilates can make a client move with ease and grace after making it part of their regimen. She is now a certified PAI (Pilates Academy International) instructor for Options Pilates Studio, Singapore.
