Instructor, Aerial-Pilates & Functional Training
Feeling a little lost and with the growing feeling that an office job wasn’t for me, Im Joy, originally from Saigon decided to focus
on broadening my horizons through traveling and meeting new people along the way to find myself and my desire which I was born to do. This brought me to Pilates, which I found improved my performance in yoga, climbing, pole dancing and weightlifting after just a few months of practice. Recognizing that Pilates is still quite new in Vietnam, she obtained the International Pilates Instructor Certificate of Body and Flow, with the intention of spreading her passion across the country

Functional training are movements based on real-world situational biomechanics. They usually involve multi-joint movements which place demand on the body's core musculature and innervation.
Functional movement usually involves gross motor movement involving the core, which refers to the muscles of the abdomen and spinal such as segmental stabilization.
