Annie Gallagher, Certified Yoga Instructor, Reiki II Practitioner, and Meditation Leader. Annie started practicing yoga when her then preteen son had trouble focusing in school and sleeping through the night. She had been a yoga practitioner on and off since college and knew well the peacefulness and clarity that comes from a regular practice. Her son was her shadow and he was happy to be invited to join her for yoga every night before bed. She saw positive changes in him socially and with his schoolwork. He was finally able to quiet his mind and fall asleep nightly. She loved the time they were spending together and was now hooked on yoga.She wanted to learn everything about it.
She began taking daily classes at 6am before going to work. After a few months, she allotted time for meditation every day and her horizons expanded even more. She knew she wanted to reach todays’ preteens and teens and quite honestly anyone who was interested, to teach them these amazing tools to help them navigate the waters of life. In 2018, she received her 200 hour yoga teacher certification from the Hot Yoga Spot in Clifton Park, NY. Through her training, she found that she enjoyed leading guided meditations and that she truly loved to teach yoga! Later that year, she resigned from her job as a paralegal and moved back to Patchogue, Long Island. After a few months, she was able to bring her dream to fruition and opened her own yoga and meditation studio, Ohm on the Water. Here she was able to offer an array of yoga classes, meditation classes, and workshops.Unfortunately, the studio closed due to Covid-19 after just 2 1/2 years. Annie feels so fortunate to have met, trained, taught and practiced with some of the most amazing souls in Suffolk County.
