Hey there! Over here are Moved LA we want to keep our community up to date on not just our movements, but also happenings with other people/companies/places that inspire, excite, and activate us. That’s why we’re starting our “Mover Monday” series to keep you in the loop with all things movement and fun!
First up, our dear dear friend and fellow mover and shaker, Eileen Crowe! We seriously love this little fireball and couldn’t be more excited about her teaching an awesome and chill Pilates class at our Urban Retreat on July 24th! We asked Eileen a few questions and here are her responses below:
Moved LA: How would you describe yourself?
Eileen: I always come prepared with a good playlist.
Moved LA: What’s your story?
Eileen: I’m a Professional Dancer and Pilates intsructor, who discovered the benefits of Pilates during my Dance training at University. I saw how it quickly it increased the performance, strength, and flexibility in my own body. It was then that I took interest in the use of Pilates for rehabilitation in Physical Therapy.
Moved LA: Why do you do this work?
Eileen: I am committed to using my background in movement to help individuals feel better in their bodies and to become the best version of themselves. There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing firsthand the amazing transformation that Pilates can create. When a person leaves a session feeling stronger and more accomplished then when they first came in, it makes me so happy to be a part of the process.
Moved LA: Who is your role model, and why?
Eileen: My Father. He is the epitome of hard work and perseverance.
Moved LA: If you could give everyone one piece of advice on their health and wellness, what would it be?
Eileen: Find workouts and teachers that resonate with you. Consistency is key.
Moved LA: If you could have one super power, what would it be?
Eileen: Flight and Teleportation. To have the freedom to move through air and space. That would be pretty amazing.
Moved LA: What are you top three favorite things to do when you have time off?
Eileen: I love going to live music shows. I love going out dancing. I love traveling to different Cities/Countries and experiencing the different cultures and food.
