Re-opening Phase 2

Hi Everyone,

Thank you for your patience during the Circuit Breaker period! We’ve been missing seeing you in the studio and with the recent annoucement about Phase 2, we are now able to resume classes. Our studio will be open from the 22nd of June onwards and our weekly schedule will be up on our website and bookings can be done directly on the MindBody App from 19th June onwards. Meanwhile here’s some of the precautions we’ve taken to ensure that we keep our community & team safe and healthy:

In line with the government’s latest Safe Management Measures, PW has adopted the following measures from 22 June 2020 Monday onwards at our studio:

  1. Safe Entry check-in and check-out will apply at the studio for all staff and clients when entering the studio premises. Please bring your smart phone.
  2. We will have temperature checks upon entry at the studio for all staff and clients. We will not be able to enter if you have a temperature above 37.5 degrees C and or display flu-like symtoms (e.g fever, running nose, shortness of breath, cough and sore throat).
  3. Please do stay at home or seek medical attention if you are unwell. Anyone who is unwell and/or with any travel history within the last 14 days, or who have a member of their household who travelled in the last 14 days, or who are on Leave of Absence/Stay-Home Notice or Home Quarantine Order shall not be allowed to enter the studio.
  4. We will continue with the increased frequency of cleaning of all studio equipment, common areas and high touch areas.
  5. Our weekly group classes will remain small and personal, and we will cap our class attendance to maximum of 6 pax at any one time based on the room size.
  6. To maintain social distancing rules, all clients will be spaced more than 1 metre apart during any session.
  7. Clients will be asked to bring their own towels for the mat. Mats will be available but it is also highly recommended to bring you own.
  8. Our instructors will be asked to maintain a distance from clients during the session, and will continue the practice of wearing a face mask during the session. Instructors and clients will be advised to maintain good hand hygiene and to wash their hands before and after the sessions. There will be no sharing of props or equipment at any time.
  9. Clients will be asked to keep their mask on at all times before and after class, and to keep a safe distance of 1m from others at all times.
  10. Instructors and clients will be asked to wipe down the mats and props after their session using the disinfectant spray and cleaning materials provided.
  11. Hand santizers will be available in the studio but it is best to bring your own and wash your hands frequently.
  12. For any payments, we will request that clients are use electronic / contactless options where possible (payment via our website/MindBody App)  

We look forward to resuming our classes and we do ask for your patience and understanding as we continue to adjust and adapt to the best practices to ensure that we keep everyone at the studio healthy and keep up their wellness routines!

Testimony from a PW Client with Osteoporosis

“I’m in my 60s and diagnosed with osteoporosis and must be careful of falling, for the risk of breaking my bones. I find doing exercises in general is very challenging for me.

I feel I have to start my exercise regime somehow and somewhere so I went for trial classes at PW, I tried all 4 movement modalities they offer, here’s my experience with them;

  • Yoga: I stepped into a vinyasa group class. I found it very challenging to do a pose like others in class. Even with the teacher giving me options. It’s not the first time that I found it hard to untwist from a yoga pose and I simply get stuck in the pose. After 15 minutes I left class.
  • Gyrokinesis: This is a series of nice movements, one flowing into the other. Nice and gentle but still challenging enough. I noticed myself loosening up and feeling less tight.
  • Mat Pilates: This was a one on one class. Beginning with a few core exercises, I felt more aligned and that loosened up my body. I recommend a few private lessons to ensure doing the exercises correctly. Mat Pilates is quite nuanced and requires detailed understanding to achieve the most benefit.
  • Yamuna Body Rolling: One on one class. As a beginner and being skinny, pressing down into the ball and rolling one vertebra at a time is a bit challenging. Positioning the ball at my shoulder blades helps to release the tension on my neck.

Having experienced all different movement modalities Paradigm Wellness offers, I would think my next step is to get a Rehab Consultation at PW to design the best possible movement regime for my personal situation. ”

Testimony from a life-long piano student and Pilates instructor

“I have been attending the Yamuna® Body Rolling classes at Paradigm Wellness as a self-care body regime, which proved to be extremely complementary to the Pilates work I was doing and teaching. In 2016, I signed up for the YBR® Phase 1 instructor training. It was 3 days of YBR® Experiential Anatomy where we used the Yamuna® balls to locate and work through all muscle groups in the body. 3 full days of YBR® work realigned and brought back suppleness to all muscle groups in the body. The most surprising benefit for me: my finger span expanded and playing the piano became much freer!! I attributed this to the 3 full days of muscle release work done at the YBR® Phase 1 training.

In 2017, my group had an amazing 7 days at The Phase 2 YBR® Certification Course where we delved further into the YBR® work, including hands-on assists. We witnessed many body transformations throughout the 7 days. Some of them, really profound. I am continuing to witness how the work has affected the people whom I am sharing the work with. It has been extremely rewarding.”
