Jae-eun first experienced Pilates after exhausting many other options to recover from acute disks in her lumbar and neck, and she was delighted to find her recovery significantly improved. Because she found energy and health through Pilates, she wanted to share her new passion with others by opening her own Pilates studio in 2007. Since its opening, she has helped many clients and offered other students and outlet for learning by hosting Merrithew Instructor Training courses since 2010.

Jae-eun recently completed her Master’s degree and is pursuing a Ph.D. in Sports Medicine to improve her ability in supporting her clients’ wide range of health and fitness goals.
