My name is SooHui and I am a certified mat Pilates Instructor. What is my Pilates story?
My first encounter with Pilates was in 2008 when I was living in New York City. I didn’t really get into it at that time, as I was very focused on running and tennis, and didn’t really understand the benefits of Pilates – not a very wise decision.
Subsequently, I went to my first reformer class a few years later, and absolutely fell in love with what it did for my body. It opened up a whole new world of muscle and body awareness that complements all my other physical activities.
I received my mat certification from Pilates ITC (International Training Center) in Sydney. As a newly certified Pilates instructor, I noticed that you meet lots of highly talented instructors who have been teaching for 10, 15, or 20 years, but not often instructors who have just started out.
I am currently training to get my Comprehensive Pilates Certification with Polestar in London.
The purpose of this blog is to aggregate useful information to help Pilates instructors starting out on their own or seeking employment in the industry, as well as to gather some stories from other Pilates experts.
It is also a community for anyone who loves, lives and breathes Pilates and I welcome everyone to share your very own Pilates story.
Hope you’ll enjoy the blog!
