Meet Your Teachers

Meet Megan

Lead Meditation and Breathwork Trainer

Discovering the power of the mind through meditation is one of the greatest gifts I’ve experienced in life. I’ve practiced and taught meditation for over a decade, and trained more than 600 yogis to become yoga and meditation teachers during that time.
My meditation journey began with my lifelong passion for creative writing; as a writing tutor and editor, I began teaching modern meditation and breathwork techniques in 2010 as a creativity aid for writers, to help them find their voice and access their flow state. I shortly after attended my first yoga teacher training and fell in love with the Vedic origins of the practices.
In 2013, I moved to Japan, where I lived for three years and devoted myself to the study of Buddhist philosophy, frequently visiting temples and monasteries to practice Zen Buddhist meditation with the monks. During my time in Japan, I also made my first trip to Bali, “the island of the Gods” where my eyes were opened to Hinduism, and where I continued my yoga training with two additional YTTs. I eventually moved to Bali in 2016 and became a lead yoga teacher trainer for various yoga schools before moving onto Escape Haven’s Palm Tree House Retreat in 2018.
To this day, I study and teach meditation under the guidance of the healer, Pak Merta Ada, who is the guru of Bali Usada Meditation, as well as with the priestess Bunda Parvati in a sacred village in East Bali. I traveled to India in 2018 to learn more about Vedic mantra and kirtan at the Krishna School of Music in Pushkar, and have been guiding yoga, philosophy, and meditation teacher training’s of my own since then.

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.
