About your Lesson
Your private Yoga lesson will be tailored to meet your body
and your needs. Megan begins each lesson with an assessment
of how you are feeling in the moment. Megan uses an encouraging
voice and gentle touch to guide you into proper alignment.
After your lesson, you will feel balanced, calm, and energized.
Megan teaches a Hatha blend and incorporates flowing sequences,
partner stretching, and elements of Thai massage when appropriate.
Megan introduces the practices of Yoga by developing physical
and emotional awareness through relaxation and a focus on
breathing. Students learn Yoga from a personal awareness of
their unique body/mind without competition or expectations
of any kind and with a deep respect of the body/mind and spirit.
Megan’s specialty is working with beginners and people
who are fairly new to Yoga. You do not need to be flexible
in order to practice Yoga! Are you drawn to the benefits you
see in others who practice? Do you want a greater sense of
resilience, more joy, and a strong and supple body? Private
Yoga lessons are a valuable way to invest in your own well-being.
Megan will travel to your home or office space at your convenience.
All you need is a space large enough for your own Yoga mat.
If you would like to share your Yoga journey with a friend
or partner and you have the space in your home, feel free
to invite them for the same lesson price.
Do you like to practice under a blue sky? On a warm day,
you may choose to have your lesson outdoors in one of San
Francisco’s beautiful parks or even in your own backyard.
Private Vs. Group
As you may have noticed, if you want to take a Yoga class,
there are numerous styles to choose from. From trendy to traditional,
here in San Francisco we have access to many different styles.
What you may not know is that the whole concept of a Yoga
"class" is relatively new as compared to the history
of the practice. For centuries Yoga was not taught in group
classes, but as a one-on-one practice.
Private Yoga lessons are a wonderful way for beginners to
set a solid foundation of integrated breathing, correct alignment
and healthy habits. Asking questions as they arise and receiving
immediate feedback is an effective way to cultivate a thriving
and sustainable practice.
Hatha Yoga Defined
The word Hatha comes from combining the two Sanskrit terms
"ha" meaning sun and "tha" meaning moon.
Yoga itself is defined as union, thus Hatha Yoga is a union
of the sun and moon. This is symbolic for balancing opposing
forces in the body, for example the inhalation and exhalation,
and the masculine energy (sun) and feminine energy (moon),
thus producing balance and greater power in an individual.
Hatha Yoga is an ancient practice originating in India approximately
6,000 years ago. Hatha Yoga uses deep relaxation, diaphragmatic
breathing, stretching and strengthening exercises to support
physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
