Prior to discovering Pilates, Aly was an oil trader, oil broker, head hunter and finally she realised that the corporate life was not for her. She got her first Pilates certification with the Center For Women’s Fitness (USA) and later, Stott Pilates and Pilates Academy International.
Aly had always dreamt of owning her own space so she could focus on what women needed. She delivered two babies via cesarean section, has had weight gains and losses, and a bad cupcake addiction (red velvet!). So she gets what women are going through with pregnancy, post natal and weight issues.
Then in October 2015 she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Now a proud Breast Cancer Warrior, chemotherapy and many surgeries left her with weaknesses and severe limited range of motion. Pilates and strength training are part of her ongoing daily rehabilitation. Also, the treatment has also thrown her into early menopause so now she gets what a hot flush feels like!
Apart from being a certified pilates instructor (Stott, PAI) she’s also on the Faculty of the Center for Women’s Fitness, a Core Barre instructor, a breast cancer specialist, women’s health specialist (diastasis recti, pelvic floor dysfunction, pubis symphysis, menopause) , scoliosis specialist, and a Level 1 certified Nutrition Coach with Precision Nutrition (Canada).
Having retired from her hobby of singing in a cover band here in Singapore, Aly loves cooking and makes a mean lasagna, chicken pie, and Acai bowl. No longer addicted to cupcakes, she is now currently addicted to The Walking Dead.
