Yulong (Aaron) Chen
STOTT PILATES® Matwork & Reformer
Yulong (Aaron) Chen is a STOTT PILATES® Certified Instructor with over 8 years of experience. He brings over his expertise as a Trainer specializing in STOTT PILATES on Mat and Reformer. Aaron studied Physical Education and later started working as a fitness instructor. Unfortunately, Aaron suffered from an injury in his lower back during his weight training. However, Aaron did not give up and choose to embrace Rehabilitative Pilates to help him heal and regain his strength and mobility.
Aaron was fascinated by the power of STOTT PILATES and was deeply impressed by the clear logic and the philosophy of the practice. This determination led him to stay at Yulan Pilates for further studies where he met STOTT PILATES instructors from all over the world. With the passage of time, Aaron’s determination grew even stronger which led him to qualify as a STOTT PILATES instructor himself. Turning his passion into a profession, Aaron now enjoys spreading the joy of mindful movement and the healing benefits of Pilates to as many people as possible.
