Pauline Shen is certified as a Fitness Instructor Specialist and Personal Trainer Specialist for over 10 years with a multitude of fitness & yoga class designs in her repertoire.
“Originally, my certification involved instructing cardio kickboxing and other high-impact cardiovascular group fitness classes. Much of my personal research and interactions with class participants had revolved around a high-energy workout approach and follow-up on general fitness questions. However, since taking a much more holistic approach to the way in which I work with my clients and fitness class participants, it became imperative to recognize that an individual’s “fitness” is simply a reflection of that person’s state of health as a whole. Without addressing emotional, psychological and spiritual health, it is impossible to see long-term results from a physical fitness program. Since then, I’ve turned my attention to daily practice using the subtle energy systems through movement methods such as Tai Chi, Qi Gong, and Yoga. Finding a balance is key to the training process, which is essentially a healing process to create lasting life changes.” — Pauline Shen
