Wan Ying first came across pilates in October 2010 when her chiropractor suggested that attending pilates classes might help to hold adjustments better by strengthening the body’s core muscles. After attending her first mat class, she was hooked. She was able to take her mind off work and only focus on her own body during the 1 hour class. As an avid sports person, it also improved her badminton game (being a competitive player since young) and increased her strength and agility during weekly rock climbing sessions.

Wan Ying continued her pilates classes during her pregnancy and after her first child was born, decided to take up the Polestar Pilates Studio instructor course. Seeing how pilates also helped her post-natal body recover, further reaffirmed her keen interest spreading the benefits that the pilates movement can bring to improving the quality of everyday life for clients.
