Megan is one of San Francisco’s finest private yoga instructors with over 6 years of experience tailoring in-home private yoga lessons. She teaches private yoga exclusively because of the care, precision, and intimacy that this format allows. Beginners appreciate that her teaching style is straightforward, practical, and accessible.

One of Megan’s favorite benefits from a yoga practice is that the possibilities for growth in self-awareness are limitless. There is no end to the learning, and yoga never gets boring because the sensations are different in every moment. Each breath is a chance to become more present and more awake.

She is also certified in Thai massage and has a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies from California Institute of Integral Studies. She is skilled at encouraging students to learn in different ways - such as kinesthetic, visual, and auditory.
More About Megan
Megan grew up in Maine surrounded by rolling hills and coastline. Megan has always been drawn to exploring her vitality through movement, beginning with gymnastics and modern dance as a child. Megan loves rock climbing, kitesurfing, hiking, snowboarding, and dancing of all kinds. She has led a colorful life, living in France as a young child and later moving from Maine to Oregon at age 16. When she was 19, Megan moved to San Francisco. When she arrived, she knew she had found home.
Megan found Yoga in 2000 and it fell in love right away. Almost immediately she noticed improvement in her physical well-being as well as in her mood and energy. Initially, Megan was drawn to challenging poses and fast paced classes, and then later she began to find the beauty of the breath. Megan’s practice and teachings have evolved into a creative exploration of the body/mind and spirit. Through Yoga Megan has found a deep sense of purpose, inner freedom and true contentment, and she is eternally grateful to all of her teachers.
“Whenever we center ourselves fully as the whole body, we get in touch with the larger reality and that reality is neither depressed nor problematical. Then our energy starts to flow more freely and we feel a deep sense of security, intuiting that our true identity is untouched by any conflict or pain.”
"What is the body?
What is love?
What is hidden in our chests?
Do not ask what love can make or do!
Look at the colors of the world."
"You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves."
