Pilates Works Classes

At The Pilates Works, Collin's philosophy is to offer price-smart and flexible Pilates classes that produce strength, posture or mobility results for you.   True to Pilates' heritage of simplicity and fluidity, we do not have unreasonably rigid nor self-serving classification.  The Pilates Works' elegantly straightforward Pilates classes offer holistic, healing and challenging workout that cater specifically to your personal goals and style.

True to Pilates heritage, The Pilates Works designed simply only four Pilates class types that assuredly can meet your personal needs and goals -  Allegro Group Pilates Classes, Customised Group Pilates Classes, Private Pilates Classes and Pre-and-Post Natal Pilates Classes.

Allegro™ Group Pilates Classes

587X403_allegro class_4746_dropshadow

The Pilates Works Allegro Group Class is one-of-its-kind where you get to work through a combination of Pilates Reformer exercises, Mat work, and Pilates exercises on the Pilates Chair or other auxiliary equipment such as Magic Circle, Pilates Arc, Roller Foam and thera Bands without paying extra for 'specialty' classes.

You will join with other like-minded, similar-level Pilates fitness buddies, working out in synchronised Pilates movements together in camaraderie.   An experienced Pilates instructor will guide you through the session, first by demonstrating the movement and then helping you through the proper execution, postures and breathing rhythm.

The Pilates Works™ offers Beginner, Level 1 and Level 2 to cater to your Pilates fitness level.  Call us to learn more which Pilates level is suitable for you.

Private Pilates Classes

587x403_private_4910_dropshadow

If you are new to Pilates and are looking for extra help to get on board the Pilates exercises, movements and postures right in a private, ask-all-questions environment, The Pilates Works offers Private and Semi-Private (two persons in the private group) to suit your convenient schedule.

A well-experienced dedicated Pilates instructor will first help you with The Pilates Works Posture Analysis Assessment.  This will enable us to understand your training objectives and physical concerns to create your own customised Pilates program.  

Clients with physical-physiological conditions such as neck and shoulder aches and pain, lower back and hip issues, spinal conditions like slip disc, scoliosis, knee pains, and related issues usually prefer individual private sessions for rehabiliating focused attention.

The instructor will guide you through the Pilates movements, postures and breathing patterns that cater specifically to your  concerns and challenges to help with fitness objectives and targeted healing corrections at your own pace.

Customised Group Pilates Classes

587x403_customised gp_4693_dropshadow_V2

The Pilates Works offers a unique and cost-effective Pilates Class for you if you have specific training objectives and/or physical-physiological concerns that need to be addressed which you feel the Allegro Group class may not not be fully dedicated to, and yet you think you do not need the full one-hour attention of a dedicated Pilates instructor.  Welcome then to the Customised Pilates Group Class.

After four private classes, you may choose to join this unique class where you continue to follow your own personal crafted Pilates fitness program and work out at your own pace, in tandem with others who are doing the same.

An experienced Pilates instructor is at the floor to guide you - be it at the Pilates Reformer, Mat work or using specific auxiliary Pilates equipment - to target your postures, movement and chronic pains and concerns but in a group setting.

Pre and Post Natal Pilates Classes

587x403_prenpost natal_4342_V2_Dropshadown

The Pilates Work offers pre-natal and post-natal Pilates classes by certified Pre-and-Postpartum Pilates instructors.

We do not advocate synchronised pre-natal classes like other studios as mommies-to-be at different trimesters demand particular Pilates exercises and fitness objectives for their best optimum care.  

Mommies-to-be can choose to join private Pilates classes or Pre-natal Customised Group Pilates classes where the dedicated instructor can continue to focus on your own trimester fitness needs and concerns such as lower back aches and neck pains.  The instructor will also share where you should focus on during the respective trimester and simple exercises to do at home.

After delivery, new mommies can choose to join our private Pilates classes or post-natal Customised Group Pilates classes.  Again, this allows us to work through to your optimal recovery post-delivery based on your delivery profile (natural or C-section), breast-feeding and baby-carrying strengthening postures, and address your particular post-delivery concerns such as diastasis, wrist pain, and poor hip alignment.

Seniors Pilates Classes

587x403_mature_dropshadow

The Pilates Works™ has specialised classes for seniors.  The key purpose is to improve quality of life by helping our class participants regain mobility, improve balance and flexibility, sensory functionality as well as overcome postural challenges. 

The class is conducted in smaller group size (5-6 persons).  Everyone follows the sequence of movements at an appropriate pace.  However, each movement is adjusted and customised to individual, depending on their needs and problems. Our clients often have knee problems and pain,  inability to squat and knee down, shoulder and back aches that we help them with during the class.

The class is conducted by the more experienced instructors, who have been trained to work with equipment and props to cater to declined tactile sensory ability.  We focus particularly on mind-body coordination to help mature participants build concentration and presence of mind.  This greatly reduces fall risks as well as increased reaction ability to break their falls, which is top concern for the mature population.

Collin Low is the Protégé of Pilates Master Teacher Alvin Giam (1955-2015) who single-handedly started the pilates movement in Singapore and Asia.  His Pilates Bodyworks was the first pilates studio in Singapore.  The late Master Alvin studied with Joseph Pilates's students Pilates elders Mary Bowen and Ron Fletcher as well as the 1st and 2nd generation students of Pilates elders Eve Gentry, Diane Miller, Michele Larsson and Pat Guyton.  Collin was schooled and groomed under the careful tutorship of Master Alvin for close to a decade.

Collin ran the Bodyworks almost as long as it has been there with Alvin.  Post Alvin's passing, Collin transited and continued Alvin's legacy under The Pilates Works.  The years with Master Alvin Giam, together with the inherited relationships and constant learnings directly with the USA Pilates lineage masters continue to humble and inspire Collin to propagate the principles and benefits of Pilates.
