I am a student and teacher of the Ashtanga tradition in Austin, Texas. Born and raised in the Midwest, I am an honorary Texan and an Austinite at heart.
For me, the seeds of yoga were planted early. As a quiet, introverted child, I would often retreat to the basement of my parents' house and explore the connection between breath and sensation in secret on the dusty floor. My study of the breath continued through my childhood and adolescence as an equestrian, runner, and vocal performer, which eventually led to experimentation with asana practice at the age of sixteen.
Though I did not begin my practice in earnest until my early twenties, the thread of yoga has been a constant in my life. My experience with yoga as both a student and a teacher continues to prove that daily practice is a powerful catalyst for personal transformation and a readily available source of peace and strength. It is my intention to inform and inspire this practice in others so that we may uplift ourselves and each other, and through our practice, uplift the world.
"My first experiences with Megan as a teacher were in group, public classes, initially vinyasa style and then ashtanga. I always appreciated her straightforward, no nonsense style and attention to detail. A year ago I had a car accident with subsequent low back pain. After not practicing for 3 months, my husband purchased some private lessons for me with Megan to help me get back into yoga practice. This is where I truly appreciated Megan's gifts. I was impressed with her knowledge of the human body and ability to use that knowledge to formulate a plan for my practice while I was healing. She was always well prepared and helped me to gradually work my way back into regular practice. She always knew just how to modify the poses for how my back was feeling at the time. In addition, she is honest, kind and compassionate and just plain fun to work with. I highly recommend taking class or privates with Megan and give her 5 stars!!"
"If you are seriously wanting to start and/or cultivate a balanced and honest yoga practice that is uniquely fit for you, I cannot recommend highly enough taking private lessons with Megan. I had fallen out of my practice for about a decade and wanted to start again. I told her I wanted a practice short enough that I’d actually do, but long enough that I’d experience the benefits of yoga. She developed a perfect, very sensible, easy to follow video that I was able to use and grow into. I am now well beyond that video, but am still growing in my now daily practice that I love. What’s most important is that it is just the right practice for me—where I was, and where I am now in life. She has also helped me understand just what yoga is in its meaning, its purpose, and how to bring it into my daily living. They are rich and meaningful lessons that you just can’t find in group settings."
