You may have seen my videos or posts on social media. Glad that you are here to find out more.

I am Carol (Saraswati) and have been teaching movements for more than 20 years. I used to be a dancer, instructor for pilates & dance, choreographer & entrepreneur at the same time. I was managing a dance centre, teaching & choreographing for a long time. Over the years, my mind was getting stronger (completing tasks and solving all the problems, as much as possible). However, my body was getting tired, I was always aching after teaching, even though I stretched and go for massages to relieve the tightness. Fast forward… I left the dance centre 9 years later and my personal life was also not going well, I had to make very big changes to my life. It was scary but it was a good change for me.

I love dance and pilates but when I started practising classical yoga, I learned how to slow down a lot which really calm me down. I took care of my body when I was young but did not pay attention to my mind. I refocused and got clear of what life really is, for me. The yoga breathing practices took away lots of muscle tensions in my body and I started to feel more flexible when my mind is relaxed. I got in touch with the mindfulness practices when I attended a retreat in France. It was so simple but felt much peace, at that time.

I changed my lifestyle and did not stop teaching because this is what I truly enjoy doing and I am able to help others. Met many students of different age groups, fitness level and also pains. I highly recommend integrating yoga, pilates and mindfulness in your practice as it will enhance your physical and mental health. We need movements to stay strong and the mindfulness approach allows us to turn inwards (feel our breaths) as we move mindfully.
I help both undergraduates in university and working adults to improve their postures and reduce chronic pains or injuries. Contact me to find out how I can help you.

what our students say?

my mind is refreshed, ready to take on the world again.

I particularly enjoy the mindfulness aspect of The Breathing Pilates. Each session is that one hour of time and space that I dedicate to myself, my body and just the awareness of my breath. I feel that my body is stronger after each session, my mind is refreshed, ready to take on the world again.

My Frozen shoulder had recovered unknowingly while practising Breathing Pilates

A couple of years back, I suffered from frozen shoulder. I went to chiropractor but couldn’t get it healed. Thereafter, I chanced upon Carol from her Facebook post on The Breathing Pilates.

guide you for long-term health goals

Carol’s classes show you how to let your body guide you for long-term health goals. She teaches with so much grace and compassion, and truly embodies the yogic spirit. My physical and emotional energies are always lifted at the end of her class.”


able to function better in my daily routine after attending the course. 

I have spinal fusion at the L4/5 vertebra and have chronic lower back pain. During the Breathing pilates Course by Carol, I learnt the importance of connecting my breath to my core muscles which ultimately supports my spine. She emphasizes on engaging the correct core muscles for each exercise while making sure that we maintain correct form and posture. I find that I am able to function better in my daily routine after attending the course. 

well explained, step by step and easy to follow

I’ve been suffering from strong tensions in neck and shoulders for a very long time.
Her exercises are well explained step by step and easy to follow and on top, very effective. I highly recommend Carol’s classes!

I learned from her to love my body more

Carol has been my yoga teacher for two years and I never found a class I stuck with until I found her. Carol possess a profound kindness and calm that infuse her classes. She treats all students with great compassion, recognising where they are in their own practice and never compares them to each other. I learned from her to love my body more, to see it not as static but keenly connected to the mind and the ups and downs we go through. Carol’s practice has been invaluable in helping me experience first hand the importance of self-acceptance. I cannot recommend her enough!
