“I have over 10 years experience in the beauty and wellness industry and am so happy to have joined the team at Singita Wellness. As well as enjoying our lovely beaches and experiencing nightlife with friends, I’m a family orientated island girl who appreciates quiet time alone (or with her cats) to reset and recharge. I perform nail services, facials and body scrubs with passion and professionalism and as the saying goes “if you enjoy what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life” which is how I feel about working at Singita; knowing that each and every guest’s desires and needs are met and that they leave feeling even just a little bit better about themselves is my favorite part of the role. Singita wellness is a magical space and everyone deserves to experience what we have to offer. See you soon!”

I really enjoy advising and helping clients achieve their personal self care goals for facials, Swedish and sports massage treatments at Singita Wellness. My belief is all we need is a little “pampering” to help us feel better.”

The Fitness & Wellness Team
Michelle began her career in fitness in 1988 first certifying as a Fitness instructor and a few years later as a Personal Trainer in Toronto, Canada. During her years as an instructor Michelle has certified and taught a variety of classes ranging from the popular classes at the time including Step classes, Spinning, Bodysculpt, to the more sought after classes today eg Pilates, Yoga, Ballet Barre & HIIT classes.
Michelle’s philosophy is about keeping our fitness diverse to keep things interesting as well as to help produce more effective results. Our body’s are so adaptable, doing the same thing day in and day out will keep things the same. Challenge the body and mind, and that is where the magic happens.
MIchelle teaches many classes on the Singita schedule as well as Personal trains clients, which has its real advantages as well. Understanding specific needs of clients and working around injuries or restrictions results in creative and innovative work outs.
Jo Hamilton brings a focus to alignment in her wonderful weekend yoga classes, “I have been practicing yoga for over 6 years; my personal yoga journey has helped me to grow stronger, more flexible and more confident as an individual. Although I began practising yoga mainly to increase strength and flexibility, my yoga practice now inspires me to live each moment mindfully and remain calm in stressful situations. Yoga has become a way of life and enables me to feel free, balanced and fulfilled, consequently, I am passionate about sharing the physical and mental benefits of a regular yoga practice with the Barbadian community.
I understand that yoga can be very intimidating for many people so I aim to break the stereotype by making every pose accessible to everybody. Persons usually leave classes feeling relaxed, energized and a little lighter than they came. My classes are a mixture of challenging, relaxing and inspiring.”
Originally from the west coast of Scotland, Fiona McKay has had a passion for fitness from a young age. Fiona was drawn to Pilates 7 years ago and certified as a Pilates and subsequently Barre Instructor with Body Control Pilates in London. “From the minute I walked into Singita Wellness I knew it was a very special place with the loveliest people and I look forward to meeting you all”
We are so excited to welcome Fiona to our team as receptionist and instructor.
