Tingzin Ellis

Tingzin has been practicing Pilates for 23 years and it continues to be a transformative
force in her life.

In 2008 she earned her comprehensive Balanced Body University Certification, joined
the instructor team at Spring Pilates & Yoga and has been teaching Pilates in San
Francisco ever since.

Creating an environment for her clients that promotes and enhances health and
wellness is one of many values Tingzin shares with the EHS community. She also brings
a sense of enjoyment and humor to the work, which has always been there for her. She
has special training and experience with pre and post natal, senior populations and
clients with injuries or physical limitations. She designs each class and individual
session for her clients with the intention to motivate, inspire and educate them towards
better movement.

For the last decade Tingzin has worked with and been influenced by many Pilates and
movement specialists. She attained her Pilates certification and completed her
Movement Medicine training under the tutelage of Nora St. John at Turning Point
Studios. Her education continued with trainings by Karen Clippinger, Erik Franklin,
Marie-Jose Blom, Lolita San Miguel and Lizz Roman. Currently she is studying the Janda
assessment and rehabilitation techniques and has completed her CoreAlign training at
EHS with Nancy Myers.

Tingzin’s college background is in art and design at the Fashion Institute of Technology
in NY. As a youth, she practiced dance, dressage and found her niche in figure skating.
