Carolyn Au Yong is the Founder and Principal of Carolyn School of Rhythmic Gymnastics (CSRG) which was established in year 2010. Having coached for the past 15 years (since 2003), opening a rhythmic gymnastics school of her own was one of the many goals she had. On top of CSRG, she still continues to coach in various schools for children aged between 4-16 years old.

Carolyn has been involved in Rhythmic Gymnastics since the age of 9 and pursued it for 7 years. During her years as a National Gymnast representing Malaysia, she has gained much knowledge and experience having trained under a Georgian-born Soviet coach (the late, Irina Gabashvili, 1979 World Champion with Ball and AA bronze medalist) to represent Malaysia in the XVI Commonwealth Games in 1998, which brought her to winning a Gold and Bronze Medal for Malaysia.

Having represented the National Malaysian Team, she has participated in many local and international competitions and had training stints abroad with gymnast from countries with very reputable gymnastics achievements such as Russia, Bulgaria, Canada, Germany, Australia and USA.

Carolyn Au Yong's thoughts
'It is most rewarding to see students excel in the sport under our coaches guidance. I am truly blessed for having a career which I am without a doubt 100% passionate about. It is such a joy and pleasure to be working with kids and to have parents by their child's side every step of the way. An even greater honor for me to be given the opportunity to impact the child's life. I must say being passionate about your work, makes the job a whole lot easier.'
