Who am I?

My name is Megan! I am a certified RYT and perpetual student of yoga. I started teaching yoga in the San Francisco Bay Area (CA), but I currently teach yoga online, and hopefully in person again soon.

My teaching style is based on Kripalu yoga. Wind Rose Yoga is the yoga of everyday life, of navigating challenges while also seeking delight, of losing our way in the forest and then finding our way again, and of discovering comfort and ease even when it seems impossible. It is the yoga of exploration, experimentation, and practice rather than perfection. I use encouraging and supportive language coupled with dynamic poses to encourage students to explore their edges, to sit (again and again) in the beginner's mindset, and to know that everyone is already complete and enough, just as they are, AND that there's still always room for more.

I started practicing Yoga in 2010 at Adeline Yoga Studio in Berkeley CA.  I completed my 200 hr yoga teacher training with Journey Into Yoga in partnership with Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in 2013. I spent 10 more years as a student and teacher, receiving certifications in yin yoga and pre- & post-natal yoga along the way, and started teaching corporate and online yoga classes in 2019. My teachers include Brahmani Liebman, Jashoda Edmunds, Julia Lynton-Boelte, Coby Kozlowski, Jane Austin, and Rachel Goldman.

 

I want to share the gifts that I have received from these talented and wise women, to be part of a community of like-minded folks, and to provide a safe space to joyfully practice self-inquiry and self-compassion.

Perfection is boring. Feelings are cool. Yoga is rad.

Oceans embrace a continent.

Space welcomes the sun.

Embrace yourself this generously.

- Verse 56, The Radiance Sutras

"From requesting consent for individual adjustments, to the gentle words that she urges you to use with yourself, Megan creates an environment in which it is all but impossible to feel at peace -- with your mind, your body, and the yogis around you."

- Kelly

- Tom

"I enjoy the positive energy I feel within myself, along with the better focus I feel for several days after attending her classes."

- Sabine

"Megan provides yoga classes that are both a physical workout and a mental reset. She has a thoughtful approach to her practice, thinking through how each pose relates to the overall well-being of her students. Her holistic approach to class is one of the reasons why I love them so much!"

- Nancy

"Megan's yoga classes are a breath of fresh air, bringing originality back to the practice. No forced mantras, no rigidity. Her wise yet humorous take on life is part of the routine, and yoga feels like a conversation with her and with yourself throughout the whole class. I like to think of her as a yogi for the non-yogi; a reminder that this practice is not just reserved for those who have a long history doing it."
