A yoga teacher since 2008, I have 200 hour RYT certifications in both Forrest Yoga and Anusara Yoga (through Pulsation Yoga with Kathy Simonik and have completed my 500 Hour Advanced Teacher’s Training at Prairie Yoga (with Lori Gaspar) which is influenced by the teachings of Iyengar Yoga. As a final project for this training I wrote a thesis on Yoga for Golfers. In conjunction with writing this thesis, I traveled to Arizona in November , 2015 and received Level 1 and 2 Yoga for Golfers certifications with Katherine Roberts. In June 2017, I completed a Yoga For Athletes teacher’s training with Sage Rountree. I have been certified in Level 1, 2, and 3 of the complementary Japanese energy healing practice of Usui Reiki with Tracey Ostrand and Gina Sendef. Reiki healing aligns and stimulates energy flowing through the body and helps promote healing and stress reduction. In the summer of 2017 I published a yoga website www.meganmilleryoga.com to share more of my background, teaching, philosophy, and passions.
My yoga classes are uplifting and energetic, but also embrace quieter, restful, reflective moments as well. Each class is themed and interlaced with breath work, philosophy, sequencing that is creative and progressive often leading to an apex pose, the use of props therapeutically and as tools to make postures more accessible, playlists that are an eclectic mix of different genres and artists blended together…classics, soul, blues, indie, instrumentals, yoga chants, but also meditative, relaxing, soothing sounds too.
At its essence yoga is about transformation… anybody, at any age, can be healthier, happier, and less stressed by learning and practicing yoga. As a teacher I work to help students personalize their practices by modifying poses and mindfully progressing to deeper and more challenging poses when they are ready. Trained in Forrest, Anusara, and Iyengar yoga styles, all rooted in alignment principles, I strive to help all of my students to develop wise, knowledgeable, instinctual practices and find balance, harmony, and peace on and off their mats.
