Audrey Millstein

Pilates @ Muse

Born and raised in a small town in Kansas, Audrey had a lot of room to run, play, jump and create. A dirt pad as the basketball court, a mowed field for softball, pond for swimming, gravel roads for running and an older brother as an “opponent”, the career started. A 3rd degree brown belt at the age of 12, Audrey was ready to compete. To be unaffected by the variety of motion, was now known to be impossible. Audrey took all of the background of her junior Olympics in basketball and track and became a division 1 collegiate athlete….and then fell to injury.

Erin Creagan

The Breathing Room

I grew up in southern California and spent my younger years excelling at competitive swimming., earning me an athletic scholarship to San Diego State University where I received my bachelor of arts in communication. After college I embarked on a new athletic endeavor of open ocean competition and competed on a national level. It was in competition that I sustained chronic shoulder and hip injuries consistent with overuse. Pilates was introduced to me as a way to strengthen my core, back and buttocks. Pilates changed the shape of my body from a classic broad, hunched, swimmer with chronic shoulder injury, to a more narrow, leaner, athlete, free of injury. Wishing I had learned the principals of Pilates during my collegiate swimming career, I decided to study the method. Testing into... Read the profile >>
