Aileen Shin (신우양) is the owner and founder of Esteem Pilates Corp.
Her journey to pilates began when she experienced a severe back injury, which led her to seek various physical therapy and exercises. Throughout different treatments, she encountered Pilates and began seeing a remarkable difference and noticeable healing. Inspired by the positive results and realizing the amazing benefits to her body, she began her Pilates journey studying under the renowned Rael Isacowitz of BASI Pilates®. She also attended various workshops and training to specialize in Rehabilitation Pilates for personal injury.
She earned her Pilates certification through the BASI Graduate Programs and training at Balanced Body. She also completed the Mentor Program and furthered her training through the Legacy Program at BASI Pilates®. Seeking to grow even further as a pilates instructor, she also finished the Master Program with exceptional performance and achieved the recognition as Master Instructor of Pilates. This allowed her to qualify as a Master Instructor who can teach and facilitate programs for other Pilates instructors.
In addition to BASI Pilates, Aileen fell in love with Aerial Arts and earned her Aerial Pilates certification from Jennifer Van Deausen of Pegasus Aerial Pilates. She also holds experience in Yoga, Pole dancing, Golf, and Weight training. Her vast knowledge and understanding of the body through a wide range of exercises have refined her to become a unique Pilates instructor who can offer well-curated exercises to each of her clients.

Meet the Head Instructor
MinJeong received her certification at BASI Pilates, a renowned teacher program leading the Pilates industry, and also further advanced her training through the BASI Mentor program. Minjeong’s journey to Pilates first began when she was suffering from her postural problem. She received various treatments and physical therapy sessions, but none had helped improve her condition. After experiencing several Pilates sessions, she was amazed by the result and how much stronger, more flexible, and freer Pilates made her feel. Her passion and desire to learn more about Pilates quickly grew deeper, and she was eager to share the benefits with those around her. This passionate journey led her to complete her certification in the BASI Pilates teaching program. Minjeong is not only knowledgeable in Pilates, but also experienced in personal training, weight training, and aerial yoga. She has a wide range of experience working with clients of all ages (from teens to seniors) and physical conditions. She has helped with rehabilitation sessions in scoliosis, disc injury, post-accident back injuries, and more. She is also specialized in prenatal and postnatal clients, catering unique exercises for women during all stages of their pregnancy and treating them post pregnancy as well. Minjeong’s goal is to make sure each of her clients experience the health benefits of Pilates and realize their workout goals. With every session, she strives for her clients to leave happier, stronger, and more relaxed than when they arrived.
