certified romana's pilates instructors level 5

ying jie ow:

Originally from Malaysia, Ying Jie discovered Pilates in her late teens while she was swimming competitively and was hooked from that point onwards.

In 2009, Ying Jie moved to Singapore where she continued her Pilates practice and passion, and signed up to a Pilates course with Pilates Bodyworks. In conjunction with her Pilates,  she worked at Underwater World Singapore as a Marine Mammal Trainer and Educator.

Fast forward to 2013, with the some Pilates creds under her belt, Ying Jie moved to Auckland, taught Pilates and then realised that transitioning into the renowned Romana's Pilates Instructor’s course would bring her to the next level… and the rest is history.

Ying Jie keeps fit with her home studio and looking after two young sons- Kol and Loki.

franker fact: Ying Jie has trained Pink Dolphins, South American fur seals and Asian short-clawed otters, and she was a carer for one very special dugong name Gracie, so training Pilates clients is a piece of cake.

jeneal rohrback, studio owner:

Jeneal grew up surrounded by a very Californian and athletic family. This gave her an inbuilt passion for anything to do with fitness and wellness, and she's tried it all, from being a serious gym bunny to extreme cross fit.

But when she discovered Romana's Authentic Pilates, she knew she'd found her calling. She completed the gruelling, 800++++ hour Instructor's Programme, and in the process became the fittest she's ever been.

She keeps a finger in competitive sport by playing inter club tennis. Here she enjoys the fast pace and cardio workout, and best of all, every muscle she's strengthened in Pilates has helped her execute those killer shots.

As well as Frank Pilates, Jeneal owns and runs an advertising recruitment business and teaches a post grad creative advertising course. These experiences give her the people and teaching skills needed to help others learn the wonderful gift handed down from Joseph Pilates.

franker fact: Jeneal loves secondhand shopping, 'Forensic Files', and pimping out other people's homes.
