Co-Founder, Lead Teacher of the AvAhana School of Yoga
Lover of life, yogini, trail runner, climber, snow boarder, mommy, writer, teacher, spiritual guide, activist and loyal friend on the path. Sometimes together, sometimes falling apart, but always inspired and empowered by love!
I am passionate about sharing the full, rich teachings of yoga (asana, pranayama, meditation, chanting, mudra, philosophy, poetry) in a truly experiential way that helps to positively transform our whole experience of being alive. Having worked as a yoga therapist for over a decade, I am continually inspired by the vitality of the human spirit and the power of yoga to help us tap into a deep source of well-being. I have been sharing the yoga life with all kinds of seekers for over 15 years and lead teacher trainings, workshops and retreats all over the world.
Hope to walk alongside you somewhere on the path soon… megmcraken.com
I love yoga and feel blessed to live and share the practice with the world. In the last 22 years of practice and 14 years of teaching, I have learned that life is one big journey of Self Love. I feel deep gratitude to be able to call the Tahoe/Truckee Area of California my home since 1994. The mountains and the community have supported great healing and self discovery for this being the last 23 years. Moved to the mountains for the skiing and climbing which I still love and partake, but much later found the deep fulfillment I was looking for in meditation. Privileged to be called mama by a sparkly 10 year old and a playful pup. Both wonderful gurus that keep me accountable to the practice.
You could say my background study is lots of years of Ashtanga, Iyengar and Anusara, i.e. asana junkie, but my interest of study is now more yoga psychology and how these beloved teachings affect all levels of our being. Supporting groups and individuals in the waking up process is an absolute passion. To be a part of conscious company is delicious to me and I envision my little town as a growing community of lovers, one meditator at a time. It has been an honor to teach beside Meg McCracken for the Wanderlust Teacher Training the last three years and am humbled to be a part of the AvAhana faculty.
Truly this journey will be beautiful together.
