Kathleen, born in South Korea, was first introduced to Pilates 6 years ago, as rehabilitation following an injury from dance. Pilates was intuitive and in sync with her personal style of exercise. She was immediately drawn to this exercise beholding a great philosophy behind and wanted to share the benefits and passion of Pilates with others.
Kathleen holds a Pilates Certification from Modern Pilates International and Educator Certification from the Pilates University of Contrology. She is currently a Pilates instructor at O:RIN and the Founder and Master Trainer at ARTE.
She believes Pilates can help every human to achieve a well being life both physically and mentally and lastly open up a new chapter of opportunities for our graduates.
Pilates is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit
– Joseph Pilates
Amongst the many quotes from the founder of Pilates, this is Kathleen’s favourite and the philosophy that she entails for instructing Pilates. She is a firm believer that Pilates is not just a sweat exercise, but a method that can improve both physical and mental health of one.
Just as Joseph Pilates first created the exercise for rehabilitation, body stabilization and balance are at the core of her teaching. With that, her objective is to educate and cultivate new instructors who can view Pilates the same way as herself.
