Yoga Vidya Academy In-Depth Studies & Teacher Training
This program is full of resources, techniques, space and timeless teachings to support you on the journey from caring for and appreciating your physical body and mind to resting in Joy, near to your soul.
Stress Relief Program
How we breathe affects how we move, think and feel; how we manage stress, and ultimately our overall health and well being. Through breath awareness and specific breathing techniques, we can both prepare to meet intensity and embrace the challenges that accompany growth as well as create the conditions for greater mental and physical ease.
We will use journaling, breathwork, movement and meditation to cultivate deep listening to attune to our own breath, body, and inner knowing. We’ll talk stressors and stress response and build/recall skills for noticing and responding to each.
THIS SESSION IS FULL!
This will be a reccurring offering. Please check back for the next session dates.
I am excited to be offering a 4 week Restorative Yoga series at Heartspace Yoga IN PERSON! (There is a streaming option if you prefer it.)
I will be in the studio holding space for ease and rest. Please join me for an intentional pause.
With the physical body supported, breath awareness will be explored to facilitate ease at the level of the nervous system. We will create the conditions to invite space in the mind and support the shift from thinking and doing to resting in being.
Joining me in person will require masks and social distancing for the duration of class.

I came to this class having already been practicing daily meditation on my own, but with a desire to learn more about the traditions and techniques of yogic meditation in order to expand and deepen my practice. Meghan’s diverse offerings, including texts, videos, and—most importantly—personal guidance helped me to understand more about meditation and gave me quite a number of new paths to explore in my practice. I found myself already wanting to take a meditation 102 class!
This four-week online series will provide individualized instruction describing technique, practical guidance for home practice, wisdom derived from foundational yogic texts and modern research.
Each session includes gentle movement, regulating breathing practices, guided meditation and opportunity for reflective discussion.
- Brief overview of the 8 limbs of yoga.
- Breath awareness meditation
- Mantra meditation
- Restorative yoga and the role of the senses in meditation
- Tapas: How to maintain your motivation for practicing meditation on your own

A topic or focal point will be introduced along with breathing technique, movement variations, relaxation and meditation. Expect a combination of static poses and dynamic flows to experience at the pace of your own breath. Meghan will offer pose variations and options so you can choose the movements that meet your needs on a given day. Communication between sessions is welcomed to better individualize your experience.
Meghan’s classes have exceeded my hopes for finding grounding and growth in practicing yoga online. Her warm welcome, calm demeanor, and steady focus offer a sense of community even among a group that I have never met in person.
Just wanted to let you know how incredible Monday’s 4pm class was – I wish I had a recording of it so I could do it over and over again! The twists and the shoulder opening were so helpful, with all the work I do at the computer all day.
