Megan's practice and teaching is rooted in the heartfelt belief that Yoga is simply a good thing. Her practice began by accident nearly twenty years ago during the deep dark freeze of a Chicago winter. After stumbling blindly into an Iyengar Yoga class in hopes of eluding the freeze, it was revealed to her that 'living is much easier if you breathe whilst doing it.' Over a decade and half on she is still trying to figure that one out, but, she practices it every day and has found life easier.
Megan completed the Teacher Training at The Yoga Tree in San Francisco in 2005, has studied pre-natal yoga with Jane Austin and anatomy with Ellen Heed and is inspired greatly and continues to learn from the teachings of Sri Dharma Mitra, Judith Hanson Lasater, Dr. Timothy McCall, and her dear friend Les Leventhal. But the teachers she is most grateful for are her son and her students. Megan's classes are filled with love and humor, sometimes silence and now and again a little Led Zeppelin. Come one, come all, do some yoga, find some ease. For more information: http://www.megaredfishyoga.com
"While San Francisco is full of yoga studios, it is difficult to find a studio that is a good fit. I've seen many yoga studios, including one with a version of Richard Simmons with a headset in 120F heat. Over the last 10 years, I have witnessed Yoga change from foreign and estranged (my first introduction to yoga was a class in "Stretching 101") to something emerging from off the fringe. Once in a while I hear folks saying, "Oh I should get back into yoga again." Yoga is becoming the thing more and more body’s need. Over the last two years, Yoga Mayu has become my home studio. It leans slightly towards the traditional side of yoga (mix of Raja, Flow, Ashtanga, Hatha) and I like this because you are less likely to injure yourself that way, and you leave feeling physically challenged and refreshed. The ambiance is calm, welcoming and generally allowing you to learn / teach yourself, without worrying about others around you. People are friendly. It's a great place to learn and recollect yourself before heading out into the big, bad world again"
