Getting to Know Your Ballet Austin Pilates Instructors: Jae Hoon Lim

By Jessica Pino, Senior Manager of Audience Engagement & Marketing

An important “tool” of Pilates is the instructor. But choosing a Pilates instructor to train with can feel a little like speed dating—not only do you want a certified and trained professional, you want someone you get along with! We’re making things easy for you with our “Get to Know Your Ballet Austin Pilates Instructor” blog series, and asked each of our certified Pilates Instructors a few questions.

Meet our newest certified Pilates instructor Jae Hoon!


  1. What do you do on your free time?
    Drive (be stuck in traffic) to the next job… Just Kidding. When I’m not working I like to take social dance classes at Go Dance or go hiking.
  2. What’s your favorite cocktail?
    Old Fashioned or Manhattan at Small Victory.
  3. What are you currently reading?
    Architecture of Human Living Fascia, Childhood Disrupted, NatGeo magazine.
  4. Do you have any pets?
    I have a 3-year-old cat, named Toupée. She is a white cat with a black mark on her head, thus the name, “Toupée”. :) She teaches me to love unconditionally and to cohabit with another being (requires some patience).
  5. What’s your guilty pleasure?
    Louis Jadot Beaujolais-Villages, Guinness, Real Time with Bill Maher, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah

BONUS Question: What’s one interesting fact about yourself?
Just one!? I’ll give you a few.
I am REALLY good at darts. Wanna challenge me? I’ll play you for a pint of Guinness anytime.
I love riding motorcycles. (Sadly, I had to sell my Yamaha when I moved here. :( So, now I am saving $$ to buy Moto Guzzi V7 Special)
I am studying to be trilingual. Parlez-vous français? I’ll teach you Korean if you’ll be my French tutor.
