My introduction to meditation to manage anxiety in college combined with my certification as an Ayurvedic Marma Therapist and Healing Touch Practitioner guide me as a Certified Yoga Therapist and energy medicine practitioner. My goal is to make yoga and meditation accessible to all. I specialize in somatic movement, which I have been offering in both group and individual sessions for eight years. The emphasis of my ongoing training is expanding and sharing the tools to empower clients toward lifestyle wellness, with an appreciation for the subtle energy body.
I am available for private yoga therapy sessions and energy work in my studio and remotely. You can also visit me on youtube at Yoga with Megan MacCarthy where I offer practices for extraordinary people with ordinary bodies. If the physical practice of yoga is not your thing but you have an interest in guided meditations, you can access a free meditation library on my website and I also have meditations on the Insight Timer app.
As a mother of three amazing Gen Z's, I have finagled a legitimate path to play like kid, bring my dog to work and be barefoot in Wisconsin all year. Sometimes the left-brained part of owning a yoga studio requires escape; so I find mySelf by chanting to my pet chickens or teaching goat yoga on the farm! Even when time takes away from a physical yoga practice, meditation continues to be the strong foundation for my sadhana (daily spiritual practice).
I don't do these practices to live longer. I do them to love more while I live.
