Hello and welcome! My name is Ilonka Michelle O’Neil. I am a yoga teacher, a registered nurse, a writer, wife, and mother.
I took my first yoga class in college, in 1997.
My family moved to beautiful south Florida in the summer of 2013.
I have training in trauma centered yoga and I teach corporate yoga classes, private yoga, and classes for groups and individuals of all ages.
I love teaching the 55 + crowd, and am inspired by the wisdom of those a little further along this path of life than me.
I have a special place in my heart for caregivers. And I love teaching beginners.
I am available for private classes customized just for you. Contact me to schedule your first session!
I’ve contributed to A Cup of Comfort for Parents of Children with Autism, and Special Gifts: Women Writers on the Heartache, the Happiness and the Hope of Raising a Special Needs Child. I’ve written for Literary Mama, The Imperfect Parent, Age of Autism, Bark Magazine, Cool Cleveland, and many other on-line venues, including a professional journal for occupational therapists. I wrote the blog for Boca Raton’s Yoga Journey for over two years. I am author of the memoir Daughter of the Drunk at the Bar. I am a former radio news reporter/editor and my pieces were featured during NPR’s Morning Edition on WAMU in Washington, DC (way back in the 90’s). In addition, I have a bachelor’s degree in nursing, with a background in mother/baby care.
