East Meets West Yoga Center

Eileen Kurtz

Eileen brings to her classes a contagious enthusiasm for all areas of health and wellness. Her goal is to help her students to focus, and to turn off the distractions of worry, anxiety, fear, and to-do lists so that they can experience their truest selves.

A California native, Eileen earned a BS in Exercise Science from the University of Southern California, completed her Flow Yoga 200 hr YTT, and continues to learn through teacher trainings, workshops and personal practice.

She has studied vinyasa, restorative and yin yoga; Indian club training; and strength and conditioning. She never misses an opportunity to learn from different practitioners and pass along helpful information to her students. Eileen is currently studying with Ganesh Mohan to complete a 500 hr Svastha Yoga Therapy Program.

In 2007, Eileen founded Kurtz Performance to offer yoga and functional strength and conditioning in individual, team, and small group formats. She has trained hundreds of students over the last decade, including youth and college athletes, homemakers, and members of elite law enforcement and military units.

Eileen loves to help students move with greater awareness and to feel freedom through release, mobility, stability and strength. Her students learn to improve patterns of movement, feel at ease, and create positive habits and change.
