As a former athlete and (still) a fitness instructor of many cardio intense programs, Felicia noticed how these programs started to take a toll on her body and mind in the form of muscle stiffness, chronic pains, and unpredictable emotions. She turned to Pilates to help her rehabilitate her body. Through the disciplined approach of The Pilates Method, she noticed incredible improvements in her posture, body alignment, and strength. Felicia enrolled in the Pilates Instructor Course in 2014, under the tutelage of the late Alvin Giam (1955 – 2015), one of the privileged few, who was able to learn the purest teachings & philosophy that were true to the original principles Pilates was based on. It took her over 9 months to become a certified Pilates instructor.
Her journey into the intriguing world of self-discovery did not end there. She was introduced to yoga a couple of years later where she found herself challenged in very unexpected ways. Many a time, these yoga practices were more than physical sensations (or a workout) but ones that would bring her to tears. Practice by practice, she found herself drawn into the intuitive wisdom of what yoga offered. In 2020 she completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Leigh Khoo (Living Yoga with Leigh).
“Life gives you plenty of time to do whatever you want to do if you stay in the present moment.”
Felicia’s classes are often evoking as she continually encourages her students to be curious to explore yet receptive to how their bodies respond to various sequences. She keeps her classes light-hearted, dotted with occasional humour, and very accessible even for beginners.
Off the mat, Felicia enjoys dancing (randomly) and spending time with her family, friends and 2 adopted dogs, Pepper and Barley. She may be a fitness advocate but has an unsatiable liking for anything fries (particularly truffle fries) and a good glass of red wine.
