Why Us

Meet Your Teachers

Meet Megan

Lead Yin Yoga Theory and Anatomy Instructor

Megan has been teaching yoga, meditation, and pranayama in some form for more than a decade, and as a lead teacher trainer, she’s trained more than 600 yogis to become yoga teachers.  

Her teaching journey began with her lifelong passion for creative writing; as a writing tutor and editor, she began teaching meditation and breathwork techniques in 2010 as a creativity aid for writers, to help them find their voice and access their flow state. She shortly after attended her first hatha yoga teacher training in Virginia Beach, USA, and fell in love with the Vedic origins of the practices.

In 2013, Megan moved to Japan, where she lived for three years, devoting herself to the study of mindfulness, Buddhist philosophy, and yin yoga, and frequently visiting temples and monasteries to practice Zen meditation with the monks. 

During her time in Japan, she also made her first trip to Bali, “the island of the Gods” where she fell in love with Vedic theology and philosophy, and continued her yoga training with two additional YTTs, another 200 hour and a 500 hour. In 2016, Megan moved to Bali, where she dove deep into the practice of yin yoga, and began studying Traditional Chinese Medicine concepts with her meditation teacher, the healer Pak Merta Ada, as well as Yin theory through the work of Paul Grilley and Bernie Clark. 

For the past four years, Megan has taught full-time as the lead yoga teacher trainer for various yoga schools, including her own Yogatrotter Academy, and teaching at Escape Haven’s Palm Tree House Retreat. Her passion for learning and teaching has taken her all around the world, including to India for continued study of mantra and meditation. She approaches her teachings with a deep reverence and cultural understanding to ensure each training is steeped in the roots of the practice.




Meet Frankie

Head Instructor for Yoga and Meditation

Frankie’s passion for yoga started in her early twenties when her mother took her to her first yoga class. She loved how within just 1 class she was able to disconnect from the busyness of the outside world and discover so much about herself and the power of yoga and meditation. With this new found passion of yoga and a love for travel she started to dive deep into exploring the different types and paths of yoga all over the world, since then she has completed many different training, from Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Mandala to Yin, Meditation and Breathwork.

Finally finding herself in Bali which has now been her home for the past 5 years she continues to explore more ways to deepen not only her practise but also finding new ways to share love, connection and knowledge with her students. 

She has been a lead Yoga and Meditation Instructor at Escape Haven and The Palm Tree House for the past 3 years where she has guided hundreds of women on transformational yoga journies.

In her classes she encourages the ladies on retreat to let go and to have some fun, as yoga is not meant to be serious but rather a whole journey into discovering who we truly are. She very much believes in what Larry Schultz taught “You just walk in, you have fun, you breathe, you do what you can, you walk out and you pay attention to how you feel”

Over the years Frankie has invested heavily in a broad range of traning spanning from Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Rocket yoga RYT 200 Hours – The Yoga People 

Swadisthana Chakra and Five Languages of Love, Advanced Ashtanga The Yoga People , Yin Yoga 100 Hours – The Yoga People, Mandala & Shamanism 100 Hours – The Yoga People , Breathwork Training – Bliss of Breath with Christabel Zamor.

She has a passion for enabling women to step outside of themselves and dive within, finding their peace and bliss through breath and movement.
