Meghan was first introduced to yoga over 15 years ago, but it wasn’t until 2010, while living in Switzerland and going through a personal crisis, that she truly realized its power and potential to change her life. A friend recommended a yoga class to her, and for that hour, she found herself completely in the present moment - not in mourning for the past or worried sick about the future. She was hooked! The physical changes were just the icing on the cake, though an injury taught her the importance of building strength in order to support our bodies throughout our yoga practices, rather than relying on flexibility as she had for years.
Meghan enjoys teaching a well-rounded, alignment based class, focused on honoring what our body is able to do that day (each day is different!) in order to build a safe yoga practice.
A bit of a wanderer for years, Meghan now works full time as a flight attendant, cherishing the hours she spends grounding herself on her mat. She has had many wonderful and influential teachers throughout Switzerland, New Zealand, Pennsylvania and Chicago before landing at The Yoga Lounge in 2016.
Fun Facts about meghan
Certifications & Accomplishments: 200 hr YTT with Caitlyn Graham Visconte and Renee LeBlanc at YogaWorks Back Bay
Favorite pose and why: Sirsasana. The first time I came into a headstand was a magical moment for me, when I both realized and was surprised by my own strength. Now, I just love being upside down!
In my class soundtrack you’ll hear: Anything from classic “yoga music” and soft piano instrumentals to indie jams and funky dance tracks.
Favorite way to de-stress: Curling up with a cup of tea and my cuddly black cat, Katze.
Favorite essential oil & use: DoTERRA’s OnGuard. In my line of work, I’m exposed to hundreds of people and their germs each day. I rub OnGuard on the bottoms of my feet, and take it internally to help support my immune system!
What has Ganesh done for you/hope will do for students? Our mural of Ganesh provides such a beautiful and calming focal point for our yoga practices. When I’m in a challenging pose or balance, it helps to look into his gentle eyes and take a deep breath.
When I’m not on the mat or teaching: I’m a flight attendant, so I’m usually either on a plane, exploring a different city, or home recovering in my pjs all day!
