Megan began an Ashtanga practice at the start of her job in education. What started as a search for an exercise to reduce stress and connect philosophy to practice, the yoga led her to her first teacher and, eventually, to her first trip to the Krishna Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India. 
 
After many years of study and practice, she received level 2 authorization from R. Sharath Jois in 2012. She has assisted Sharath in the teaching room at KPJAYI and taught at Jois Shala in the U.S. before running her own Mysore program in Connecticut. Currently, she teaches in Den Haag. She is grateful to her teachers and the guidance of Paramaguru R. Sharath Jois along the path.
 
Between here and there, she traded in the academic classroom and found space to combine her creative interests and passion for teaching others. Time spent on the mat—the daily repetition with its inevitable ups and downs— anchors her spiritual practice through self-acceptance, dedication, discipline, and the tapas fire of a fully inhabited body. Her teaching encourages a surrender to meet your self where you are for the day with the work of recognizing the old patterns of the mind and body. Within this balance of acceptance and exploration, the practice is revealed.
