Yoga Instructor, RYT-500, RPYT
Megan first came to yoga by way of dance. As a dancer and dance instructor, yoga was often used in warm-ups and even in parts of dance choreography. After using yoga as a form of physical therapy to recuperate from a few dance injuries, as well as a healthy way to deal with stress and anxiety, Megan decided to become certified in yoga. Though Megan has been teaching yoga in the dance arena for a number of years, she officially obtained her 200-teacher certification (RYT-200) in 2015, and her 500-advanced teacher certification (RYT-500) in 2017 from New Day Yoga in Kennesaw, GA, as well as her 90-hour prenatal teacher certification (RPYT) in 2016 from Etowah Valley Yoga in Cartersville, GA.
With her background in dance, Megan couples principles of fluidity and the breath with an important understanding of anatomy and alignment. Megan holds a B.A. in Modern Languages and Cultures with a concentration in Spanish, and a minor in dance. She is also currently enrolled in Kennesaw State University and will graduate in May 2018 with a Masters of Exercise Science with a concentration in Exercise Physiology. As the Studio Manager at Oya Yoga, Megan seeks to create an environment in which each student may experience whole health, abundant life, and deep, supportive community.
