Who am I?

Hi, I'm Megan! I am a certified RYT and perpetual student of yoga. I teach yoga online and in person.

My teaching style is based on Kripalu yoga. It is the yoga of everyday life, of navigating challenges while also embracing ease, of losing our way in the forest and finding the path again, and of discovering delight even when it seems impossible. It is the yoga of exploration, experimentation, and practice over perfection. I use encouraging and supportive language coupled with dynamic poses to encourage students to explore their edge, to adopt the beginner's mindset, and to know that they are enough, just as they are...AND that we're always expanding into 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 through Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in 2013. I spent 10 years as a student and teacher, receiving certifications in yin yoga and prenatal yoga along the way, and started teaching workplace yoga and online classes in 2019. My teachers include Brahmani Liebman, Jashoda Edmunds, Julia Lynton Boelte, Coby Kozlowski, Jane Austin, and Rachel Goldman.

 

My mission is to share the gifts I've received from these talented and wise teachers and to provide a welcoming 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

 

"Yoga isn't a juice cleanse in a bikini in a resort, it is being in union with ourselves, our WHOLE selves, and especially the parts we hide from ourselves.

 

Yoga gives us the space for inquiry into our light and our shadow selves so that they can start to work together in harmony. The practice informs our purpose. We do long holds, balancing poses, and meditation to practice getting comfortable being uncomfortable. To see things from different points of view. To remind ourselves that feelings and sensation are temporary. To feel into our bodies so we can listen to what they have to say.

 

To slow down so that we have the space to take a breath before our lizard brains do our speaking for us." - Wind Rose Yoga newsletter, 12/8/2020

"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."
