What People Are Saying
Megan is an absolutely incredible yoga instructor. I had been cautious to try Yoga due to chronic back pain with no positive results from physical therapy and several doctors' visits. Since working with Megan in such a short amount of time the pain is gone! I can't thank Megan enough for what she has done for me. My stress level has decreased, I feel more in balance with my life and my free time is no longer devoted to bed rest!

I used to think Yoga was for women and hippies....and anybody else but me. That was before I met Megan. Megan's passion for yoga is contagious. Thanks to her, I am now a believer. She has skills, experience, and ability to instruct all levels. Megan's genuine care for her clients, confidence in her clients, and ability to explain and demonstrate also combine to make her a 5-star instructor. Do your body a favor, and call her!!

Megan is an absolutely amazing yoga instructor- I've always wanted to try yoga but was intimidated after checking out public classes only to feel defeated and awkward. I wanted a yoga instructor who wouldn't be telling me about crystals and superpowers, but rather about the health benefits of yoga for the body, mind, and soul. Megan listened to what I was hoping to achieve with yoga, and then enhanced my goals by showing me about the real potential of yoga in a very down to earth way. She is fantastic at making you feel like yoga is natural even if you are a novice. I have been taking lessons from her for about 3 months now and it has become such an important part of my week. Megan is truly exceptional and I recommend her 100%!

We highly recommend Megan Gathers. Her teaching combines her depth of knowledge and extraordinary skill with great enthusiasm and personal warmth that makes the time enjoyable and inspiring. She customizes the lessons to your level and encourages you through challenging poses. My husband and I also appreciate that she allows our own humor and playfulness to be a part of our lesson. Our bodies are stronger and our spirits are lighter because of Megan. We feel that she has become part of our family. We can think of no higher testimonial than that!

If you are interested in how yoga can change your life, I highly recommend Megan Gathers. In the 8 months we've been working together, the carpal tunnel pain in my wrists has lessened, and my flexibility and fitness have greatly improved. Megan's got great intuition, sensing when she can challenge you and when you've had enough. She's highly knowledgable about her field and carefully uses yoga to help improve your quality of life. She's also easy going, fun and has good taste in music which make the sessions even more enjoyable.

I have been doing yoga with Megan for about 6 months now and I love it! She has such a wonderful spirit and passion for the practice that she brings to each lesson. She also has a fun take on yoga - allowing you to laugh and be silly as you sometimes tip over or lose your balance. And who doesn't need a bit more laughter in their day! She is fantastic and I enjoy every hour we spend together.

We contacted Megan at an extraordinarily stressful time, when Kathi was battling breast cancer. We were both exhausted and out of shape. Megan instantly became a cheerful, healing presence in our lives. She called upon her deep knowledge of yoga, challenging us to do our best, while respecting our physical limitations.

Megan is an incredibly gifted yoga teacher, both on physical and spiritual planes. She guides me through many levels of asanas, always paying close attention to my abilities and strengths. She has found her true calling in life, and it is great to be the beneficiary of such largesse.

Megan brings her passion and enthusiasm for yoga to every class that she teaches. I look forward to every session because I know that I will be challenged to a level that I am comfortable. Megan always makes me appreciate yoga because she helps me develop my practice and keeps me coming back.

Megan teaches classes at our office twice a week - those are two hours of my favorite hours during the week. Megan's teaching style makes yoga approachable and easy for any skill level to enjoy, and I always leave the class feeling refreshed and focused. Megan rocks!

Megan is an exceptional teacher. Poised, understanding and knows exactly how to push you that extra inch to get the most out of your workout. She is flexible with my schedule and comes right to the house. Best decision I ever made!
- Amy Miller, Lucasfilm
Megan is extremely passionate about yoga and it radiates throughout her lessons. She has provided me with the inner strength to push myself beyond my limits through her gentle, soothing and comforting approach. Every lesson leaves me feeling restored and incredibly blissful through out my day.
– Dennice Ibarra
Being fairly athletic but tired of circuit training and gyms and public humiliation, at 56 years of age, I wanted a private and personal experience. Megan is the answer to all of my requests! Megan is kind, encouraging, peaceful and VERY good at teaching proper technique, especially while you are learning how to do the stretching, bending and balancing yoga asks of you. I am now standing on my "Head"! I can't imagine a better instructor or person to have in my life!
