Is this class for me?

Experienced or not, we tailor to your needs

Whether you have zero background in movement or have an existing practice, there’s something for everyone in this workshop.

If you are new to moving, progressions will be given according to your needs. The aim is to find ease and joy in moving your body, not to execute a perfect movement. So come if you are looking to get a workout while having fun!

If you have an existing practice, whether it be yoga, pilates, crossfit, animal flow, martial arts, dance or more, you can discover a new and fun recovery day routine to complement your practice and get help breaking down specific movements or skills. So come if you are curious to try something different and make new friends!

What people are saying

Ningyu

Charis draws from her significant background in dance and other movement disciplines to come up with sequences for participants to work on, while interspersing strength conditioning exercises in between to ensure that everyone gains the requisite strength and mobility to execute the moves confidently and safely. The class provides a safe space for individuals to explore creativity in movement while working within their physical capabilities.

I would thus highly recommend this class – led by a very friendly and helpful instructor – to anyone interested in exploring movement or just to have an unconventional workout session.

Serene

Both my sister & I are in our late 50s. We started attending Charis’ movement class last November. 

The class starts with muscle & core strengthening exercises followed by a series of floor movements to build strength, agility & alertness. We have fun exploring our abilities, trying things we previously thought were impossible. At the end of each session, we always have a sense of accomplishment. 

Charis is understanding & patient. She modifies movements or provides us with options to cater to our weaknesses while also challenging our limits. We would definitely recommend this class to people of any age.”

Tse Pei

Training with Charis has exposed me to a whole new way of seeing movement. Instead of seeing exercise as a set of movements to complete, Charis’ flow classes encouraged me to explore different ways of moving and helped me gain confidence and body awareness in moving. Now, I no longer think of working out to keep fit – I train and I play, which makes me naturally motivated to sustain my movement practice.

Classes with Charis are light-hearted and fun-filled, and you’ll always walk away having learnt something new. When I’m struggling with certain movements, Charis is able to intuitively grasp my limiting factors and give personalised advice on how to work towards my goals.”

Ray Mc, Physiotherapist

“Charis is a very dynamic multi talented movement professional who will introduce you to the worlds of kinstretch, house dance and fluid strength and will provide a safe space for you to express movement in your own way, create your own patterns and help you access movement transitions you never thought you could access. She is extremely kind and really cares about her students.”
