Shirley was born in Korea/China and speaks fluent Cantonese and Korean as well as English. With a background as a K-Pop (Korean Pop Song) dance teacher and choreographer, Shirley naturally developed a passion for various movement exercises including HIIT and aerial yoga. After being introduced to Pilates in 2015 Shirley was hooked and decided to embark on a Pilates career completing the Cert 1V in Mat and Reformer Pilates with Breathe Education in 2018 and currently completing her Diploma of Clinical Pilates after settling in Australia.
Shirley loves how Pilates focuses on breathing, posture and stability as well as core strength and finds that a whole body workout is varied, challenging and dynamic. Shirley is in high demand with clients who speak Cantonese, Mandarin and Korean as she is able to translate the method in a language that helps them get the best out of their sessions.
Shirley is currently working at our Hunters Hill studio but is also available for sessions at Broadway and Pymble.
