There is no greater reward than witnessing people in pain learn to become skillful in moving their bodies better, and in reducing stress and fatigue that can contribute to injury, disease and overall imbalance.
Read more on my background and training.
My body has been injured, a lot.
Falls, a car accident and sports left me with chronic pain that started 30 years ago. Thankfully, I finally found yoga and learned natural ways to manage my symptoms. Yoga and movement therapy helped me so much that I went to school to become certified so I could share these amazingly effective methods for healing and pain management with anyone who suffers like I did.
I am a Certified Yoga Therapist (through the International Association of Yoga Therapists) and a Registered Yoga Teacher (through the National Yoga Alliance). I have been teaching therapeutic yoga and movement programs in health care clinics, fitness centers, yoga studios, retreats, workshops, businesses and private sessions for over 10 years with great results.
I'd love to know more about you and what is getting in your way.
No matter what your age or what health ailments or disease you have,YES, it is possible to live more comfortably!
Feeling is believing.
“ Yoga [and movement] therapy is very much about the whole person,” says Janice Gates, president of the International Association of Yoga Therapists and author of "Yogini."
“It is complementary to physical therapy, but we take into account
that back pain may be related to an emotional element, or it may be from lifestyle, some pattern that is not serving them, physical movement patterns or other patterns. "
“Meggen helped me to be patient with myself and showed me that over time I could and would become stronger, and I did. I became flexible and stronger in such a short time that I was stunned! "
