"Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness" - Joseph Pilates.
13 years ago, my knees gave me so much pain that I struggled with walking up and down the stairs. My doctor recommended that I do Pilates to alleviate the pain. After a month, my knees were healed and I said goodbye to pain. The big PLUS, I got my dream body that I had yearned for a very long time.
Pilates helped me and now I want to help you too.
Let's all be happy!

Born in Shanghai, China, I currently live in Tokyo with my dear husband and my lovely toddler son. I speak Mandarin Chinese, English, and N4 level Japanese (still learning!).
The first time I had heard of Pilates was when I met a lady twenty years ago with excellent posture and shape. She told me it was all thanks to Pilates that she could look like that.
Pilates entered my life again ten years later when I was suffering from knee pain. I could hardly walk up or down the staircase. My therapist suggested Pilates as part of my pain management plan. A month of Pilates exercises later and I was healed! I could not believe it. I decided to seek professional training as an instructor so I can tell more people about how wonderful Pilates is.
As a result, I now have the following certifications:
Comprehensive Pilates training by Balanced Body USA
Pre & Postnatal Pilates training with The Center of Women’s Fitness USA
Fascia-focused Pilates Movements by Elizabeth Larkam
Senior OOV Trainer Level 1,2,3
Pilates for children training with Pilates Youth Organization
