Yoga Teacher - Model - Social Media
Originally from Boulder, Colorado, Megan Whiteside has lived and traveled all over the world to pursue her passions as a professional athlete, a model, and as a yoga enthusiast. Megan has a background as a professional snowboarder, and the importance of yoga was always a major factor in her life to keep her fit, flexible and healthy. After competing for years around the globe, serious injuries plagued her and forced her to re-evaluate her career as an extreme athlete.
After she retired from competitive snowboarding, yoga became a central part of her life, and eventually led her to become a yoga teacher herself. With an in-depth and first-hand knowledge of sports injuries, Megan has a style that focuses on the students' unique needs, and she has helped many other athletes improve their performance and overcome injuries through yoga. She loves working with people who are passionate about sports, but also understands the unique needs of athletes and non-athletes alike.
Megan's teaching style is rooted in many years of a dedicated and varied practice in multiple disciplines and traditions of yoga. Having done multiple teacher trainings both in Colorado and New York City, her teaching method is infused with a uniquely blended Vinyasa framework influenced by Katonah Yoga, a practice rooted in geometric alignment principals, pranayama, and Taoist theory. Her classes are full of creative sequences that are playful yet challenging, and her lighthearted attitude and playlists will always put a smile on your face. Her goal is to make yoga accessible, enjoyable, and informative for everybody so they can connect with themselves and live life at a higher frequency.
The presence of yoga in her life has helped allow her to pursue her other passion of travel, and she has been to many different places worldwide to practice yoga and deepen her knowledge and experience as both a teacher and a student.
Megan is a certified in Vinyasa, Restorative, LoveYourBrain Yoga, and is a certified Katonah Yoga Teacher.
Megan Whiteside is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance, which acknowledges the completion of a yoga teacher training with an approved and active Registered Yoga School (RYS).
