Loo Ying Yan

Ying Yan started yoga out of curiosity when she discovered that the two bodyworkers who inspired her a lot, Yamuna Zake and Ida Rolf, were both yogis. Their revolutionary insights and approach to the human body were probably built on a strong mastery of the self through the practice of yoga. Ying Yan is a certified Yoga teacher with the International Yoga Teacher Association (IYTA) and a certified Yamuna® Body Rolling Instructor. She is on a mission to help people become more aware of the relationship between the way they hold their bodies and the muscular imbalances that ensue. Her classes are designed to bring about balance of the body, mind, and soul.

Ying Yan is also specialised in Yamuna® Foot Fitness which makes her the person to go to with your questions about your foot issues. In her classes she teaches you the importance of the fitness of your feet for a healthy functioning of your total body.

Amy Chong

Born and bred in Malaysia, Singapore and Melbourne Amy had a passion for movement which she converted into a tool she could use to help others achieve the same freedom and balance in their bodies.

She began with her journey into Pilates spreading the alignment, stability and strength exercises through teaching Matwork in schools, clubs, corporations and gyms.

Along the way she met with The Gyrotonic Expansion system which changed her life inside out. Ever since then Amy has helped people using the Gyrotonic Method in studios to mobilise their spine and joints, create a healthier reproductive digestive circulation hormonal and neural balance in the body increasing their function and vital energies.
