Meghan has been practicing Ashtanga Yoga since 2009. She makes yearly trips to Mysore, India to study with her teacher, R. Sharath Jois and was blessed with Authorization (Level 2) to teach the Primary and Intermediate Series of Ashtanga Yoga in 2015. In the fall of 2016 Meghan had the honor of assisting her teacher at the KPJAYI.
In addition to studying with Sharathji, Meghan's practice and teaching have been profoundly influenced by the guidance of certified teacher, Sharmila Desai of Ashtanga Yoga Morjim, and authorized teacher Christine Hoar of Ashtanga Montauk. From both of these women Meghan has learned how to sustain her practice joyfully, and translate the self-study that occurs on her mat into action in her daily life.
Meghan is also an Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant, having completed a course of study facilitated by Ed Zadlo, through the American Institute of Vedic Studies in the fall of 2017.
A native of Philadelphia, Meghan lives in the Fishtown section of the city with her husband, Jason, their daughter, Maggie, and their two dogs, Scrappy and Pixie. Meghan is extremely grateful for her practice and for the community at Mysore Philadelphia who share their mornings with her. There has never been a nicer group of people to breathe with every day.
Robina began practicing Ashtanga Yoga in 2014 after exploring different traditions of yoga for several years her teachers guided her home to the practice of Ashtanga. She connected with the practice deeply since the first “Vande Gurunam” and knew right away that this was the profound healing methodology that she had been seeking. Since then she has gone on to practice and teach internationally in Tokyo, Costa Rica, Canada, and around the U.S. Robina is currently studying with and assisting Meghan Kirk and is excited to guide students in the evening program at Mysore Philadelphia.
Outside of sharing and spreading the practice, Robina runs a private bodywork practice that focuses mostly on Myofascial Release. She’s excited to blend the practices of massage and yoga, and believes herself to be a conduit for healing energy expressed in these forms.

She went on to study with Manju Jois, David Swenson and completed a year-long mentorship under Authorized Level 2 teacher Taylor Hunt. Recently she completed an Ashtanga & Addiction forum in hopes to better serve the community and those in recovery like herself.
In 2017 Jen relocated back to Pennsylvania and found a new Ashtanga home at Mysore Philadelphia. She recently completed her training as a massage therapist and lives in Germantown.
