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.
