I had surgery done on L4 and L5 of my spine in 2008. After the surgery, my body was never the same again. I experienced constant pain and discomfort every day.
I started pilates training in 2009 and it helped me to relieve some of the pain but not fully. Then in 2015, I had right knee replacement and that added more pain on my body until I met Serene Teo during a pilates convention in Seoul in 2017.
I started semi-private training with Serene in the beginning of 2018 and since then, my body has improved tremendously.
During these two years, she helped me regain my health through correct posture, better co-ordination and also increase my awareness of the correct posture when doing my daily activities.
I was taught to be more mindful with stretching the right muscle to reduce tightness. The stretches done every week helps me to overcome the constant pain that I experienced in the past.
In addition, the stretches she made us do is different every week and thus, it makes the lesson interesting and not boring. She is a firm teacher and know when to push us. The training is really good although sometimes quite tough but we are fully aware it’s for our own good.
These days, I am literally pain free and was able to even enjoy my weekly badminton game. I am very happy. My friends even admired my tone body !
