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 or 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.
Ivy began practicing Ashtanga with Meghan in 2013.
She has been dedicated to the practice since then, and has attended workshops and a Primary Series adjustment clinic with Christine Hoar and Nancy Gilgoff. Ivy lives in South Philly with her husband and their tiny cat, Miss Marple. In addition to assisting with Meghan, Ivy works for a local nonprofit, volunteers at the Rosenbach Museum, and teaches free community vinyasa classes at her local library. John's Water Ice makes her weak in the knees.
In 2013 Jen started out taking Mysore classes from Zoe Mai in Collingswood, NJ. After moving away from the area she practiced and continued to search out knowledge to eventually establish Ashtanga Yoga Syracuse in New York. 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 is currently enrolled in school for Massage therapy and lives in Levittown, PA.
