“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

Workshops & Special Interest
“Since being awakened to the holistic approach, I’ve added many tools to my repertoire. Some of these tools include techniques used in personal training or fitness classes, but others are more appropriately used as part of a progressive workshop series. Sharing with others is a crucial part of the journey to health and healing; this is how we integrate what we’ve learned and become responsible for putting it into practice. This is the true holistic approach.” — Pauline Shen
Special interest workshops include learning about the subtle energy systems and integrating methods of connecting with these subtle systems in order to improve lifestyle, health and relationships. To view the current schedule, please click here: Class & Workshop Schedule
