Bio:

Yeji’s love of health and fitness stems from a life in dance. As a child she was inspired by traditional Korean dance, and she went on to study at the prestigious Korea University of Arts. After graduating, Yeji moved to the UK to study at London Contemporary Dance School before joining Hofesh Shechter Company, where she trained, taught and performed contemporary dance for 10 years. It was through this experience that Yeji discovered Pilates as a way of gaining the stability and stamina needed to cope with the intense physical work.

Along with her first class honours degree and postgraduate diploma in contemporary dance, Yeji is a qualified Mat, Pre and Post Natal and Dynamic Reformer Pilates instructor. She is keen to share her knowledge to improve her clients’ health and fitness – focusing on strong alignment, breathing, and core internal muscles to strengthen the body and prevent injury. Not only does this help her clients feel and look better, but the benefits can be seen in all areas of their day-to-day lives.

In Yeji’s spare time she loves to knit and even make her own clothes, as well as cook delicious Korean food. When she’s not teaching, Yeji continues to dance with Hofesh Shechter Company and you can find her performing at a theatre in London!
