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.

Tayla

Tayla first started strength training in her late teens, but her love for fitness really grew after moving to outback Australia and attending group fitness classes. This combined with strength training built her confidence in the gym and made her realise the importance of a strong, healthy body.

From here, Tayla went on to train as a Les Mills instructor, and then later become a Personal Trainer so she could help others forge their own path to a healthier and happier life.

Tayla is a qualified Personal Trainer with the Australian Institute of Fitness and NASM Certified Pre and Post Natal Trainer.

Hannah

Originally from the UK, Hannah has always had a passion for exercise and healthy living. From an early age, Hannah attended ballet, competed competitively in running and eventually found her way to Pilates in her early twenties.

With her love of Pilates, Hannah completed her NASM personal training qualification and Peak Pilates course and worked for many years as a personal trainer. Hannah loves incorporating mindful movement practice, breath work and pilates foundations into all her workouts!

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.
