Meet your instructors
Elena Keegan, E-RYT 500
Owner and Instructor
Elena Keegan is the proud owner and head instructor of Baton Rouge Yoga Company since 1996. Elena actually used to be a high school Spanish teacher, so teaching comes naturally to her! Elena is proud to hold her E-RYT 500, which means that she holds her 500 hour accredited teaching certification. Elena specializes in beginner and advanced Hatha Yoga, Gentle Cardiac Yoga, and Prenatal Yoga. Her teaching method produces an energizing session that enhances overall well-being, and ends with a blissful Shavasana (i.e. deep relaxation). She is a true believer that yoga empowers anyone who practices.
Alison McGehee, RYT 200
Alison has been a yoga instructor for five years and earned her certification through Yoga Steps Centre for Advanced Yoga Studies. She is also certified to teach pre-natal yoga.
Alison aims to lead a light-hearted, intuitive, meaningful class that feels accessible to her students. She is honored and humbled to have the opportunity to empower her students by strengthening their physical bodies and cultivating their inner awareness one breath at a time. She has three children, a dachshund, and a tabby cat. She wholeheartedly agrees with the yogic wisdom that we should sweat and smile every day!
John Eeds, RYT 200
John started teaching yoga after retiring from a career as a mechanical engineer. He is a certified yoga teacher and has studied primarily in vinyasa and Ashtanga yoga styles.
I enjoy teaching a challenging class and helping others to become aware of the inner strength and transforming power that a regular yoga practice develops and nurtures. Finding ones focus and awareness on the yoga mat helps us to recognize what is important in life and enables us to live fuller, richer lives.
Paige Abadie, RYT 200
Paige completed her 200hr yoga teacher training in 2015 at Refection Yoga and Health Studio in Baton Rouge. In addition to teaching yoga, she is a practicing licensed massage therapist. Both yoga and massage therapy has provided Paige with extensive knowledge on the human anatomy, physiology, and energetic healing modalities. Paige provides hands on adjustments and always ends her class with a relaxing neck and head massage topped with aromatherapy. She is grateful to be in service to her community by sharing her two passions in life.
