Ompulence helps you to regain your freedom of movements so that you can live a pain free life and do the things that you love.
"Take good care of yourself, so that you can help others"
Health goes beyond physical strength and we must learn how to slow down our minds when we practice, so that the strength and mobility we gain over time, give us a balanced mind and body.
Our practice starts from our breaths and spine.
Relieve any pains in your back and neck by
maintaining good spinal health and mental well being. You will be guided on how to practise The Breathing Pilates method and classical yoga mindfully. This will help you to increase Qi (prana) in your daily life.
The methods I share with you will help you to build inner core strength and relieve physical pains. Mindfulness will be part of this healing practice to help you find balance in your life.
I have been teaching movements for more than 20 years and I am also a dedicated practitioner of meditation, as it had transformed me physically and mentally. I hope to connect with more people and share the gems that had helped me and my students. You are invited to download the free mindful movements mini course and also the Free E-book to help you kick start your healing journey and live a balanced life.
Peace and Light,

How can our classes and teaching methods help you?
Ompulence offers classes for students who want to relieve mental stress, alleviate back or neck pains and improve on their postures. These students want to have better spine health.
Classical Yoga helps to you to relax physically and mentally, bringing your nervous system back to balance. The breathing meditation will teach you how to gently bring your mind back to the body and back to the present moment. This can help to enhance your parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system.
The Breathing Pilates method helps to strengthen your deep postural muscles with mindful breathing and movements. This will relieve much pain in your lower back and neck areas.
Carol (Saraswati) has also been teaching an elective course designed by her for the university students in Singapore. This introductory course on yoga and pilates has helped many young adults.

What our students say ...
After giving birth, I felt that my core muscles were weak and I was experiencing a lot of back pain. The Breathing Pilates course has helped me strengthen my core muscles, stretch out the spine and this had helped in relieving the pain on my back.
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.
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.
When I started practising yoga and pilates with Carol, 3 years ago, I had severe lower back pain from mild scoliosis. I have since improved my posture and feel more connected to my body than I have ever been.
Carol taught me how to connect movement, mind and breathing. I have learnt to listen to my body, be kinder to myself and grown stronger through consistent practice. Unlike other classes that push you and end up hurting you. 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."
I've been suffering from strong tensions in neck and shoulders for a very long time. Before taking up Pilates lessons with Carol a few years ago I haven'´t been aware of my body and my breathing. Carol helped me in creating body awareness and taught me how, proper breathing helps to release stress and body tensions. She is an excellent and very experienced teacher! Her exercises are well explained step by step and easy to follow and on top, very effective. I highly recommend Carol's classes!
A couple of years back, I suffered from frozen shoulder. I went to chiropractor but couldn't get it healed. I went through intensive TCM treatment by a specialist physician for a period of time. I was able to move my arm more freely after the treatments but could not raise it straight up, pointing to the sky anymore. At most it was about 70% of my original function. I was more or less resigned to the fact that I would live with this state, for the rest of my life.
Thereafter, I chanced upon Carol from her Facebook post on The Breathing Pilates. I didn't sign up because of my shoulder, it was more to correct my posture. I have since been consistently practising under her. One day, my friend asked me how was my frozen shoulder. I raised my arm, intending to show, "look this is as much as I can recover, 70% of my original function." But to my amazement, my arm shot up straight pointing to the sky! It was 95% now! Never in my wildest dream did I ever thought this was possible. My shoulder had recovered unknowingly while practising Breathing Pilates with Carol.
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!
Thank you again for the yoga and pilates classes. I truly enjoyed it immensely and felt a reduction in stress and improvement in strength after taking your classes
Carol is a very experienced teacher who emphasises on both the physical and spiritual aspects of yoga, which has benefited me greatly. With her correction of my asanas and pushing my limits more with every practice, I feel myself improving in my yoga journey.
I would like to thank you for the past 12 weeks of pilates and yoga course in NTU and I appreciate all the hard work you've put into the lessons. I have definitely learnt a lot about yoga - its practices, benefits and the motivations behind it. I also appreciate the weekly final meditations you gave us in class every Tuesday, and I found myself sleeping very well on Tuesday nights and generally feeling more refreshed on Wednesday mornings. I think I have found another part of me through yoga- a more peaceful, more calm version of myself and it really helps my mental health a lot. So thank you for being on this journey with me.
