Hannah was born and raised in South Korea. When she met her forever love, she moved to Michigan, where she is now a permanent resident. She discovered her passion for Pilates in 2012 when she was first introduced to mat Pilates at a studio in her neighborhood. The biggest reason she loved going to the studio was because her first instructor had a beautiful figure – made by Pilates.
Hannah never thought about becoming a Pilates instructor at first, but as she found her own body and posture changing dramatically over time, she wanted to study Pilates full time. She became a STOTT certified instructor in 2017. During her study, she decided to quit her day job as an office worker in a trading company and devoted herself in working out and observing how her body works with Pilates and how to use that to help others. Although many obstacles and people initially stood in her way of becoming a Pilates instructor, she overcame fear and doubt and committed to a healthy future.
Even now as a Pilates instructor, the learning never ends. She continues to study, examine, and take courses on her own – adding Barre certification as well.
