it is with tremendous gratitude that i share these stories. may their wisdom encourage you to take a step in ANY direction of healing.
I cannot thank you enough for the time that I spent with you over the last year and a half. Physical movement has always been so important to who I am and to my emotional well-being. After my husband died, I lost so much, including the ability to push myself. It was through yoga with you that I was able to reintroduce myself to that world. It pulled me up and out and got my body moving, which in turn, has done wonders for my emotional healing. I am actually running a marathon in a few weeks. I just wanted to thank you for being a part in getting me back up and running (ha!). I do miss our sessions together - and your wonderful music selection. -E
I started private yoga sessions with Meghan right after being diagnosed with stage IV cancer in June of 2017. I was beaten up, physically from a grueling surgery and the start of chemotherapy, and mentally, trying to be a “well” person in this new world.
Meghan and I have hit the mat through two monumental surgeries, and a dozen cycles of chemotherapy. The care and wisdom she brings is crucial, knowing what to be aware of with my physical challenges and when it’s okay to push me to new levels of awareness and ability. She does all of this with a touch of humor and human kindness that bring hope and gratitude. For people with past or existing cancer challenges, you will find a very educated and talent yoga teacher in Meghan that is unlike any other teacher. With her background in physical therapy, trauma work, and interest in the whole person, you will be at ease! -B
Meghan and I met by fate. Her compassion, knowledge, training and gentle soul were exactly what I needed.
While recovering from a Stage 3 diagnosis with multiple physical limitations, I was so intimidated to begin again. Meghan gently encouraged me begin again. Living. Breathing. Moving. Breathing.
I was scared to use my muscles and move my body but with Meghan guiding me, I slowly discovered my physical and emotional strengths and overcame weaknesses too. Meghan's knowledge of the body, physiology and whole body rehabilitation has been remarkable for me. I consider myself so very fortunate to have Meghan as an advocate, teacher and mentor. -M
Meghan was recommended to me after I had been through a very tough medical ordeal. I had just received an experimental treatment for cancer, which put the cancer in remission. However, prior to the treatment, the cancer had wreaked havoc on my body. When I started working with Meghan, in one:one yoga sessions, I was feeling extremely vulnerable , physically and emotionally. I was weak, had compression fractures in my spine, and did not know what my body could or could not do. I had done yoga in the past but at that time, I could not stretch my hands above my head, could not lie on my back because it was too painful, and my balance was very poor.
Meghan met me where I was at – and with kindness, knowledge and encouragement, made me feel like my body was not my enemy but my friend. I appreciated that in addition to being trained as a yoga teacher, she had also worked as a physical therapist and had experience with oncology patients. I appreciated her gentleness and her wisdom. Even though my progress was incremental at first, she gave me confidence to continue and after individual sessions, I joined her small group gentle yoga
classes and was so excited that I was able to fully participate.
Meghan came into my life at a moment when I was feeling very fragile and through her yoga instruction and compassion, she helped me reclaim my strength - I am so grateful! -R
I found Meg after being diagnosed with painful back problems that doctors did not expect to improve. I did not trust my body, nor myself or others to keep my body safe. Meg’s physical therapy background helped build that trust, and our private therapeutic yoga sessions allowed me to figure out that I could in fact make my body stronger, and how to do so safely. Now when I go to group classes, Meg and I both know exactly what modifications I need to stay safe while also building my strength and wellness. I am so grateful for her, and hope to keep practicing with her for decades to come! - E
