Her Story

Yunjeong began her teaching career as a yoga instructor in 2006 before being introduced to the Pilates method.
She began learning contemporary-style Pilates in 2013, but soon fell in love with Classical Pilates, and found it to be the only form of movement and exercise that completely changed her body and made her stronger than she had ever been.

She started with Polestar Pilates and then completed her certification program with Power Pilates in 2017.
In 2023, she continued her Classical Pilates journey by seeking out specialized classes with Karen Frischmann (LA, USA).
Yunjeong continues her personal practice with renowned teachers like Karen Frischmann (LA, USA), Ken Krech (LA, USA) and many other highly respected Pilates instructors from all around the world.

She has also had the privilege to take workshops with Jean Claude Nelson, Brett Howard, Chris Robinson, Murat Berkin and Sandy Shimoda,
All of these teachers have helped YJ to keep growing as a highly experienced instructor in her own right, in addition to being a lifelong student of the Classical Pilates method.

She opened her first Pilates studio, Piladio, in 2016 in Seoul, South Korea. She very quickly grew to the point where she required a larger space, opening a second branch of Piladio nearby in 2017. In 2021, she made the move to Vancouver where her husband and his family are from, and opened Blooming Pilates.

Yunjeong is known for her challenging and detail-oriented style of teaching. She has extensive experience teaching clients of all levels and movement backgrounds, from athletes to the elderly. She enjoys sharing her knowledge and passion for the Classical Pilates method and is currently the sole owner and proprietor of Blooming Pilates.
