MEET THE INSTRUCTORS

Eileen Muriel

My name is Eileen Muriel.  I’m originally from Queens, New York but was raised in Colombia S.A.  As a teenager I moved back to NY and then relocated to Naples, FL where I have resided for the last 23 years.  I am married with three wonderful children aged 25, 24 and 22. 

 

I am currently an owner/operator of a dance studio located in Bonita Springs, FL.  For 12 years prior to opening this studio, I owned a local business importing, painting, and decorating ancient wood furniture.

 

I’ve always had a passion for music and dancing.  In 2006, I discovered this wonderful workout called Zumba.  In 2007, I started my Zumba training and since then, it has changed my life both physically and mentally.  I have taken several Zumba training classes throughout the years and have attended several Zumba conventions.  I have taught Zumba classes at various gyms (such as the YMCA) and at private country clubs over the years since receiving my certification.  

 

Zumba is not my job, it’s my passion!

 

I am currently licensed to teach Zumba, Zumba Gold, Zumba Gold Toning, Aqua Zumba, Zumba Toning and I am CPR/AED certified.
