About Tara O'Neill & Vitality

I’m Tara O’Neill, owner of Vitality Yoga and Wellness. I’m a yoga instructor, holistic therapist, teacher, and flying yogi!

 

Vitality is many things. It’s a yoga studio, an antigravity yoga hub, a treatment room, and a source for learning about all things yoga and wellness.

 

Vitality was born in 2005, and has grown over the years along with my love for anything connected with yoga, wellness and healing.   


Vitality encompasses all of my yoga classes, holistic treatments, corpoate work, and teaching.

My Background

My journey to Vitality began in 1993, when I first qualified in Personal Training and Health Studies. I’ve always been active and interested in anything that can boost endorphins (our happy hormones), and keep us healthy and vibrant.

 

I worked solely in fitness and personal training for many years, opening my first studio in 1997.


Along the way, I ventured to my first yoga class. Nothing was ever the same after that. I was hooked immediately! I went to as many classes as I could possibly find, and in no time at all, I began training to become a yoga teacher.

My Philosophy

I believe so strongly in the power of yoga and holistic therapies.

 

They can heal, improve our overall health and quality of life, and even transform our outlook on life.

I encourage my students to create a yoga space in each class, giving them permission to be present and mindful as they move through the class. 

I believe creating a light-hearted, fun atmosphere in classes, a space for everyone to feel at ease and vital.
