Myroslava Nykolyshyn, from Ukraine, is the owner of a fitness studio called FitLab in Beijing and a mother of three. She has amassed more than 15,000 followers on Keep, a mobile fitness app, and her moments have garnered over 40,000 likes.

Teaching the class of Barre, an excise that combines the grace of ballet and the core strength of Pilates, Myro herself got back in shape several months after giving birth to twin brothers in April.

"(You may say) You are an instructor, this is why you got back in shape so quickly. Seriously, not at all," Myro said. Just doing it one step a day, slowly, even starting with 20 minutes at a time, is her advice.

Myro said that as an attentive coach, she usually observes the mood of those attending her class, and adjusts the difficulty of the exercises accordingly, so that they can return to their daily lives in a good mood and in good shape.

Having been living and working in Beijing for 12 years, Myro has witnessed the rapid development of the city. She said she likes to see how the old and new combine together in the city.

"I guess beauty is about acceptance, about accepting yourself and loving yourself," Myro said. To be happy and to be full of energy, one should find time for him or herself.

"There should be this one thing which is only about you, not about others," Myro said, and then you may give this energy to your beloved and your work.
