Deirdre OʼReilly - Owner
Deirdre started her personal yoga journey in 2008. Her practice has helped her with the breath, strength, flexibility, stillness and creativity on the mat and through every area of her life. When she started taking her own daughter to yoga at the age of 2 1/2, she was inspired by the wonderful benefits yoga brings to children.
Deirdre received her 95 hour certification through Young Mountain Yoga to teach children and teens in 2016. With a strong desire to bring yoga to the youth in the community Deirdre founded Rock Steady Yoga Kids. Creating space where kids and teens feel safe to be themselves in a non-competitive environment is the goal of Rock Steady . It is a place to breath, move, explore, let go and have fun!
Off the mat Deirdre enjoys spending time with her family, being outdoors, drumming, listening to music and reading. She has her BA in Elementary and Special Education.
Favorite poses: Warrior II, Childʼs and Tree
Abigail has practiced yoga for many years, however it did not became an influential part of her life until a few years ago. At the time she was working with children who had suffered from trauma and her work environment was very stressful and draining. She began a regular yoga practice for herself, which gave her more energy, allowed her to self-regulate, manage her stress and become a more centered and mindful person. She realized she couldn't keep these benefits to herself and decided she to share yoga’s benefits with those around her!
She began her training by taking a 95 hr Children and Teen certification program through Young Mountain in 2014. Afterwards she began to teach many children's classes. She went on to receive her 200 HR through Yoga Mountain under the guidance of Gail Walsh, Janet Vignola and Ronda Lam. Currently Abigail is working towards her 500 hr Certification with a concentration in Aerial and Yoga Therapy. While Abigail specializes in teaching yoga to children, she also has experience teaching adult vinyasa and restorative classes.
When Abigail is not doing yoga she is teaching fifth grade in a specialized school from children on the Autism Spectrum. She also loves to travel and enjoys flipping around in aerial yoga classes.
