Ashleigh's bio

Ash

Growing up in an extremely active family, health and fitness has always played a large role in Ashleigh's life. Ashleigh first discovered pilates when she went home to visit family in 2017 where her mother booked her into a reformer class. She fell in love with the practice and has never looked back.

 

After moving to Hong Kong, Ashleigh took the chance to study Pilates through Stott, to gain more knowledge and understanding about the practice. Since becoming a mother, Ashleigh has a new appreciation for her body, and decided to pursue a career in teaching pilates.

 

Ashleigh has completed her pre and postnatal coaching and is currently working towards completing her BSc in food and nutrition.

Hermione's bio

Hermione

Hermione’s movement background has led her to discover the power of pilates. Having been a dancer for TVB Pearl for over 4 years, she saw first hand the benefit that pilates can bring not only to her overall fitness, but also to improve form and avoid any injuries. With this in mind, she trained to become a Pilates Mat and Reformer instructor with Polestar and has helped countless clients achieve their fitness goals.

 

Local to Hong Kong, her mother tongue is Cantonese and is also fluent in English and Mandarin. When she’s not in the studio, you can find her out on the waves surfing, at home baking bread or spending quality time with her two children.

Stella's bio

Stella

Stella has been practicing yoga since 2015. She learned that Yoga is to unite and indicate a perfect harmony between the body, mind, nature and universe. Fitness and flexibility is simply the by-products of Yoga. Practising Yoga every morning has helped her maintain clarity and calmness with her busy schedule running her own company. She especially enjoys how focused she can be when practising each posture slowly and accurately. She believes everyone is suitable to learn and practise Yoga and hopes to encourage her students to incorporate the practice into their daily routine.
 

Studying at the Life Management Yoga Center in Hong Kong, their philosophy encompasses all the traditional roots of yoga with teachers from India and emphasises on “Yoga Beyond Posture”

Georgie's bio

Georgie

Having been brought up in Discovery Bay, Georgina knows just how special the DB community is. When the opportunity arose to take over the business, it seemed like the perfect fit; her mum used to work for Embody and Georgie would spend her weekends renting out the studio for dance practise. Georgie’s ambition is to build on the welcoming and open environment that Embody offers to all their clients.

 

Her love for dance and outdoor activities brought her to pilates. She saw the benefits pilates can bring to her overall fitness but also to help with her posture and avoid any overuse injuries. She wants to share her knowledge and passion, and encourage her clients to live a happier and healthier life through the use of pilates.

Federica

Originally from Italy, but based in Hong Kong since early 2004, Federica started her yogic journey since her move to Asia, fascinated by the sense of peace and release she immediately experienced on and off the mat. Yoga practice inspired her to live each moment more mindfully and empathetically and to help others find the same comfort through it.

She completed her yoga trainings under the guidance of Master Yogananth Andiappan, at Anahata-Yoga.

Federica believes yoga is the right balance between strength and flexibility, so her classes combine a Yin and Yang approach to postures, with a focus on meditation and breathing techniques.
