Megan Styles

A California native, Meghan’s yoga journey began with an Eoin Finn Power Yoga for Happiness VHS tape in 2004.  At that time, the relentless pursuit of burning calories in the gym was the preferred activity, and yoga was relegated to the “rest days.”  Over time, yoga began to grow as more than a “low impact workout” – it became a practice of self-love and acceptance nourishing body, mind, and soul.  When she relocated to Vancouver in 2012, she fell in love with the many teachers and studios in the Vancouver yoga community.  When she discovered Yoga by the Sea shortly after moving to Roberts Creek, she found home on another level.

The slower, meditative style of the Amrit Yoga Lineage has provided a balance to her natural inner fire.  She still doesn’t find it easy or natural to rest her mind or body, and her consistent practice is the tether back to the calm place inside.  Meghan creates a space in her classes where all are welcome to both bravely and lovingly meet themselves where they are at in the moment.  Her classes are both light and soulful, both physical and meditative.

Meghan is a serial self-developer, nearly always enrolled in some form of education.  She is a graduate of the 200 Hour YTT program at Yoga by the Sea , and in addition to the 300 hour YTT program, she is enrolled in courses that advance her skills as a corporate learning professional and coach.  She is actively engaged in the work of anti-racism, examining her own privilege and bias in order to help take responsibility in dismantling systems that oppress BIPOC.  She is a loving mother and wife to Carson, Harper, and Doug, and her dog, Rocky.
