MEGAN PETERSON

Megan took her first yoga class in 2008 and knew immediately that she would one day become a yoga teacher. Through yoga she continues to discover a space for integration and clarity of mind.

She completed her first 200 hour yoga certification in 2011 and continued her studies and certifications in various styles including prenatal yoga, restorative yoga and Street Yoga- trauma informed yoga. Her personal yoga journey, accompanied by the motivation to share yoga with a more diverse population, led her to study Yoga Therapy with Sarahjoy Marsh. Megan completed 500 hours of study and is an IAYT Certified Yoga Therapist.

Alongside teaching yoga, Megan is a birth doula and is passionate about prenatal and postpartum yoga. She has seen how prenatal yoga creates space for people to embrace the mental, emotional and physical changes that accompany pregnancy. She is particularly joyful to get to see students postpartum and offers a space for compassionate exploration of this unique life phase.  

Through yoga there is an opportunity to embrace and seek greater understanding of one’s body, mind and spirit. Megan’s classes are guided by breath awareness with a concentration on mindful, compassionate movement. Megan believes anyone and everyone can benefit from yoga and is continually inspired by her students and grateful to be able to share this journey with them.
