Lydia started ballet lessons at the age of 5 years and later on also picked up tap, jazz and modern dance under the guidance of Ms Sharon Liew. She then decided to further pursue dance at the New Zealand school of Dance as a classical major in 2015 and graduated 3 years later with a Diploma in dance.
During her time in New Zealand, Lydia got the opportunity to learn pilates as part of the full time program curriculum and hence personally experienced the benefits of pilates for a dancer.
After returning to Singapore, she decided to learn more about pilates and started joining classes at Pilates BodyTree. In 2019, Lydia joined BodyTree as a teacher and is also currently a ballet teacher at One Dance Asia.
Lydia is inspired to teach and share the benefits of pilates to dancers and non dancers. She aspires to show her students that pilates is not just a form of exercise but a lifestyle.
