Jia Yin’s passion for movement began at a young age; she trained competitively in artistic gymnastics before treading into her first (Chinese) dance class at the age of 12. A leap of faith after graduating from Singapore Management University (SMU) saw her pursuing dance at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) in Singapore, then at State University of New York (SUNY) Purchase College under a scholarship from the National Arts Council (NAC).
Equipped with a Bachelor in Fine Arts (Dance), certifications and training in other movement modalities namely GYROTONIC®, GYROKINESIS®, and Balance Body® Pilates Mat and Reformer, Jia Yin juggles between teaching dance, Gyrotonic, Gyrokinesis, and Pilates at various studios and institutions. She is an adjunct lecturer at NAFA, and an artiste with The Human Expression (T.H.E) Dance Company’s Second Company, where she dances, choreographs, and teaches.
Jia Yin finds joy and fulfillment in helping her clients and students tap into their potential of movement as a form of therapy, injury prevention, as well as athletic and mindfulness training to enhance performance. She is a firm believer that a functional body makes for a happy and expressive body.
