Abby Nagler- Martin
Abby is originally from Houston, where at a young age she discovered the importance of staying active and eating healthy foods. Whether she was playing soccer or dancing, being active was a huge part of her life. Dance was and still is her exercise of choice, and she is known for incorporating various forms of dance in every yoga class. Abby stumbled into her first yoga class upon moving to Austin in 2006 and has been practicing regularly ever since. Her love of yoga combined with her passion for the promotion of children’s health led to the creation of The Little Yoga House.
Abby's kind, yet silly nature has allowed her to communicate well with children of all ages and truly feels like a big kid herself. She creates a special bond with each of her little yogis, and her classes are filled with magical yoga journeys, art projects, world music, as well as an educational component to compliment the theme of her classes.
Abby is certified at the 280-hour level with Rainbow Kids Yoga. She also completed a 30-hour teen intensive with Karma Kids Yoga and a training to teach children with special needs through Every Kids Yoga: Teaching Yoga to Kids With Special Needs with Craig Hanaur. Abby is a certified pre-natal, post-natal and baby yoga instructor through the Birthlight Foundation. She also completed a 25-hour prenatal training with SambaYoga and is a certified children’s yoga therapist through Zenergy Kids Yoga Therapy with Loraine Rushton.
After many years on the mat, she decided to take it up a notch and went through advanced training with Yogapeautics to be certified in Aerial Yoga and now teaches many of the kids aerial classes at the studio.
She is grateful to have the opportunity to share yoga with everyone and is continually inspired by her students, teachers, friends and family.
