Anita Tang

The Orange Room Wellness Center
Shanghai, China
Born in Hong Kong and educated in Canada, Anita moved to Shanghai, China in 1995. She stumbled upon Pilates while searching for a way to ease her muscle pain and tension. From the relief of her tense muscles to the relief of her tense mind and the discovery of a new inner strength, practicing Pilates left Anita open to the many possibilities in life. The change was so profound that she decided to leave her corporate life. She co-founded the Orange Room Wellness Center in 2006, which later became the first host center for Merrithew™ education in China.

Anita first became a STOTT PILATES® Certified Instructor in 2012, and an Instructor Trainer for Merrithew, specializing in STOTT PILATES Mat and Reformer in 2015. In a fast-growing market in which quality can sometimes be compromised for quick results, she strives to uphold the high standard of Merrithew education in China, one course at a time.
